Conversations with Merle

CWM is a group activity. Merle will read a selection from the book or give a talk on a topic, followed by a facilitated conversation. He will dialogue with the members of the group and do pieces of work individually or with part or all of the group as the situation requires. 

This is an opportunity to have extended direct contact and experience a healing environment. These groups typically last 90 minutes to two hours. Longer themed events can be planned.


Merle is available for key note and small group speeches with limited dialogue with the group.
