Grey Matters Now

Are you frustrated by the sensationalizing of polarizing issues and problems?
Does it pain you to see how fearful and angry people have become?

There is A LOT below the surface of what makes up the newsworthy. Very few issues, if any, are black and white and have an easy quick fix. Life is full of shades of grey – the stuff we need to explore in order to cope and navigate through this ever-changing world. It’s my goal and mission through Grey Matters Now to create a safe space to foster consciousness, facilitate conversation and have an outreach component that builds community.

In this podcast we engage in healthy communication with one another, pick away at things one conversation at a time, roll our sleeves up, dig deep and remember to breathe.

Join Us.

About Me

I’m Anne, a Social Worker by title that’s been working in social services at some capacity for almost 30 years. Over those 30 years I have worked in a variety of diverse fields and demographics. I have had the honor of working with people at both ends of life’s spectrum from reproductive health to hospice and so much in between. I have personally experienced tragedies and trauma at a young age with few to no resources to process these events. I spent so much of my life fumbling through it wondering if I was going to sink or swim. I have been blessed to have a lifetime of unconditional love and community to hold and support me. It is a deeply personal mission for me to facilitate others to discover resources and the power of community for navigating through tough times. I do not want anyone to have to fumble though unnecessary pain and uncharted dark territory the way I did.

In my experiences exploring and providing resources, I found that they are changing as fast as the world is spinning. How can we discover, identify and integrate the resources for healing and navigating? By rolling up our sleeves and digging deep into issues. Let’s pull problems up by the roots like weeds and examine them so that we can re-plant healthy and flourishing gardens. This involves open communication, vulnerability and sharing of tools. I believe, from the brightest part of my heart center, we CAN cultivate healing, consciousness, and light!

I currently live in Leucadia, California with my Husband Kirk, who I met in the Pacific Ocean, and a menagerie of rescued animals. Leucadia means Paradise and Sheltered Place in Greek and it is INDEED appropriately named. My community still feels like a village and I love being involved with committees that support and plan community events. As well as working part time in Environmental and water quality studies, Kirk and I own an event lighting business and I am actively involved in volunteering for pet encounter therapy programs and most recently disaster relief. To say I have been blessed is an understatement.

It feels good that perhaps, my 50’s are my pioneering years of a mission of sharing and having sometimes difficult conversations for healing and change – not just for me but for everyone trying to navigate through this ever-changing world we are all spinning on together. Join me in this personal and exciting endeavor of conscious conversations in the grey!
