My mission is to inspire and catalyze a heart-intelligent template of law and governance through feminine wisdom.


Passion Statement

I am passionate about the transformative power of looking down, under the surface, where we find what we take for granted or rarely question. I find that individually and collectively we often look up, back or ahead to find answers. We often forget to look “down” because we were taught to fear or neglect this place. The Public Heart, a heart-intelligent template of law and governance, is what emerged from my journey “down” into the roots of our collective.

I often hear that heart and law are an oxymoron. My heart tells me that this is not necessarily true. I have spent the last 18 years diving deep into the mysteries of my own heart. What has emerged is a commitment to re-define law and governance. I learned that when we live according to the wisdom of the Public Heart the legal and other failing systems – as currently understood – become moot. And, justice, freedom, peace become a living experience rather than a chased after concept.

In the place of the Public Heart I found guidance and a knowing in the power and heart-intelligence of human nature. In this place I found Love as the most underutilized organizing principle. Finding my way “down” in my personal life has not always been easy but looking back and ahead has brought me a deep sense of meaning and a profound respect for the beauty of life in each moment.

I am passionate for the words of the Public Heart to inspire, challenge and ripple into each of you and I am grateful to continue to express the essence of the Public Heart in creative ways: speaking, writing, facilitating, acting, and any other means opened by Life. I am not offering a “how-to” formula on how to bring about heart-intelligent law and governance as that defies the very essence of being in alignment with the Public Heart….I am offering the simple principles which are moving us into this alignment so that the forms and flexible structures of the Public Heart naturally emerge. Thank you for joining this dance!
