About my coMMITMENT
In this, the ‘third act’ of my life, I play, share and humbly engage with individual and collective meaning-making and social innovation – as an animateur*. I ‘walk the talk’ of being in and contributing to communities that create the ‘structure of belonging’ so vital to our future, serving as a mentor, a facilitator, a learning designer, a community member. I offer my experience with dialogue, planning, learning and inquiry to build capacity, beyond our limiting beliefs. The Ginger West Collaborative creates a vital and enriching community of practice that sustains and stretches me.

Out Beyond Ideas
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase each other
doesn’t make any sense.
