Jana has worked with innovative teaching and parenting areas most of her life. With a history of teaching in alternative school movements, she has a passion for sharing and empowering others in positive change. She believes her most rewarding and beautiful achievement is the conscious parenting and support she gives to her children and grandchildren.
Since discovering the articulated process of NVC over 10 years ago, she deeply values embodying this combination of truthful and loving connection in her own development, relationships and work environments.She has experienced debilitating chronic illness and now enjoys the freedom to express herself clearly. Part of that springs from the heartfelt desire and ability to listen without judgement.
Jana loves dancing, singing, bush walking, writing, yoga, reading, sharing and connecting with people. She has worked in biodynamics, permaculture and visual arts. She delights in an extended supportive family and community, wanting others to know deepening care, connection and celebration. Drawing on her past professional teaching work and experiences, she now facilitates NVC interactive workshops, study groups, introductions to mediation, and offers private ‘empathy counselling’ and mediations, especially in families.
“My Passion :
I have a passion to see the world at peace. I believe this starts with me, my relationships, my own physical and social environment. I want to offer the joy of what I’ve learnt and also seen in other people’s lives as they start to connect with themselves and others in a compassionate way.”
