On the path of nonviolence, fear can be both foe and ally. We can be curious about its message for us, and invite its wisdom; or we can let it rule us, keeping us from engaging in true depth with the very purpose of our lives. In this workshop we will explore a process for identifying our hearts’ calling–moving into relationship with our fears– and then imagine ways for strategically harnessing the transformed fear energy into concrete, constructive and creative actions for long-term nonviolent change, such as restorative justice and unarmed protection teams.


Linda is available to schedule an interview or Book Talk (with or without a slide show).  She can also schedule a Turning Fear Into Power workshop during which she will work with participants to be in a new relationship with whatever fears emerge as they think about pursuing their hearts’ longings.  She asks for her expenses to be covered if she needs to travel outside of Sonoma County, California.  Please go to the Contact Me page on this website to let Linda know of your interest.
