‘Words and Your Heart’

Written to help children understand the power of words.  

“Someday we’ll be able to measure the power of words. I think they are things. They get on the walls. They get in your wallpaper. They get in your rugs, in your upholstery, and your clothes, and finally into you.
Maya Angelou




Our humanity demands the value of every life. We are all beautiful in our uniqueness and a gift to and for each other. We are more together than apart. 

You is really an overflow of the work I have been doing on the Culture of the Heart schools resource. The resonating theme of the resource is that we are totally hardwired for relationship.



Culture of the Heart

Schools’ Resource

The schools' resource is an unfolding project. There is a beautiful way of thinking in Japan, whereby ideas emerge as seedlings and are then nurtured and allowed to grow into shape. The schools' resource is still growing. It began as a series of workshops with primary school children on the power of words. The workshops had such a positive impact on children that I was approached by a Multi-Academy Trust in the UK to write down the content with English Literacy Lead, Danielle Towe. We worked together creating the first few cultures, cross-referencing the PHSE/SEL learning with creative disciplines. The work kept growing and has become the seven-culture resource that is currently available. Another 5 cultures are in development, including an emotional literacy program, that centers around developing empathy and emotional literacy.


The resource is great to use with children ages 7-11 and there is so much more coming. These are exciting days!
