A daily commitment to excellence, and adherence to professional standards that are aligned with a framework of Gentle Teaching, guide us in navigating the heart’s capacity to love and to serve.
Our secondary goal is to share the non-violent philosophy of Gentle Teaching and a Quality of Life model with others, locally and globally, who support or want to learn more about the applications of Gentle Teaching, and how to mentor a spirit of gentleness as a way of being present and interacting positively with others.
Do you need a mentor for your counseling practice? Globe Star “circle leadership” offers training, consultation and collaboration.
We work with the Quality of Life Institute, Inc., to develop presentations, programs and materials that support training, coaching and the facilitating of workshops that benefit professional development and the delivery of services.
You are invited to grow with us, celebrate with us, learn with us! We hope you will find this page informative and inspiring, and that you will consider joining us in ‘mentoring a spirit of gentleness.’
