She has enjoyed mentoring Early Childhood (E.C.) teachers in caring and creative environments. She owned a before and after school care business for 3 years. She then progressed to E.C. teacher, assistant director, co-director of E.C. school for 20 years. The school had a staff of 25 teachers, 150 students and support staff. Compassionate Communication has had a profound impact on Lynn's life. She is inspired to share Compassionate Communication with others. She has been teaching it and is now approved by CECPD to teach to teachers for Continuing Ed credits. She loves seeing teachers of all kinds benefiting from creating a compassionate classroom.
Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They came through you but not from you and though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
Lynn's joy in life sharing the love which Compassionate Communication brings into people's lives as they develop their skills at communicating in a connecting manner. She also likes the self-awareness that comes with their practice of the skills. Lynn follows a kundalini yoga practice which brings her calm, peace, balance and love. Compassionate Communication adds a mental emotional depth to the experience of body movements and breathing techniques. She feels a deep profound love of life. On a personal note she says "Using the skills of Compassionate Communication with my partner, 3 children, 6 grandchildren and other family members has brought so much joy into my life. Even though things are not 'perfect' they are much better than if I hadn't learned these skills."
