Exquisite Knowing Trainings™ prepare teachers, mentors, and leaders to catalyze fully embodied creative and critical thinking as both individual efforts and collaborative adventures. Trainings can be adapted to a spectrum of subjects and settings, and they lay the foundation for personally meaningful engagement and respectful communication and collaboration.

During these half-day trainings, participants learn the Exquisite Knowing Model™ by performing it themselves. They then collaborate with the facilitator and each other to adapt it for their specific settings. The model catalyzes conscious democratic/popular participation during the immediate exercise, and it cultivates empowered engagement generally speaking.

Ashley maintains an atmosphere that feels safe and encouraging. She helped foster the development of my own writers’ group, which has been instrumental to my writing life. I recommend Ashley highly.
