A warm hello to all who are visiting the 3PGC website! I am a semi-retired LCSW who was blessed beyond my imagination to be introduced to Sydney Banks and the 3 Principles 25 years ago, and then to be generously mentored by so many of our “first generation teachers” as I supported 3P communities in Denver, CO and Des Moines, IA. My heart as a social worker has always been grounded in a commitment to support others in their journey through life, but my evolving understanding of our true nature truly begin to blossom in response to deeply hearing, in 1997, just a few very small nuggets of the truth that Syd pointed us toward. In my personal life as a wife, mother, grandmother and friend, and my professional life in a variety of management and leadership positions in the fields of public health and social work, I continued to discover an internal gracefulness, joy and peace that has enriched my life and supported me in supporting others – whether they were clients, the managers and front-line workers who supported them, colleagues/partners in community work, or the leaders and managers over me. I am honored and grateful for the opportunity in semi-retirement to continue supporting my fellow human beings from a grounding in the 3P while I journey through my post-retirement years here in San Diego, CA.
