Initiate New Practice

waiting for springI believe in moving from research to practice – trying new approaches learned through experience or research – to see how they really work in practice!

Check out Learning Processes or Helping Others Learn at www.learningandviolence.net and initiate some new practices yourself!

 

What do I want to do?

  • Support you in the new practice to address the impact of violence on learning that you want to try!
  • Try out new ideas with students in my local community-based adult literacy program and in interested community-colleges.
  • Create new practices in my own life – balance body, mind, emotion and spirit – continue to learn and practice Pilates, yoga, meditation, photography, mosaic, and felting.
  • Continue to play with new creative means of expression and invite others to join me in this.

What new practices could you initiate in the area of learning and violence?

Created the Women’s Success Course at Parkdale Project Read for survivors of violence and developed a manual for others to use.

Learned photoshop to use photography to explore the impact of violence on my own life.
