Author / Speaker / Board of Directors Consultant


NEW RELEASE coming soon

The Peppermint Principle is a simple and heart-stirring real-life experience of the author, told in story form.  The story is set in a remote, rural village in West Africa and unknowingly presented by a small group of children.  In a surprising set of circumstances, an incident results in an unexpected lesson in leadership, compassionate cooperation, building inclusive communities and personal growth.  The story may warm your heart, and then inspire you, the reader to discover an idea or invoke a call to action toward greater group dynamics expressing cooperation, building harmony--and solving challenges.


The discussion is an opportunity to open the mind and heart to greater compassion while studying the story as a metaphor for life.  The story may help in improving human relationships that form relationships with compassion and the spirit of connection and cooperation.  The guide works well in a group, but may be used on an individual basis for personal discernment.
