Lived Learning Services
for Individuals and Groups

"The quality of engagement determines the quality of the outcome."

Nancy Peden and Lived Learning offer services to develop communication skills, and support individual and community learning, calling on the reality of the current environmental and social challenges, using collaborative methods that are we believe are more ethical and integrated, respecting individuals, communities and the planet.

    Offerings include:

    Accessible, easy to use and economically reasonable publishing, web site development, and web presence development using many Web 2.0 tools for ease of use and value.

    Creative development of learning tools that respect "different ways of knowing" including production of newsletters and training manuals.

    Revitalization of professional practices. For any profession, we offer practices and cognitive education to help promote creative shifts effecting outcomes for professionals and their clients.

    Identification of individual and group learning styles; recommendations of best methods for effective learning and cooperation.

    Personal Networking and training strategies; online conferencing and management using theories of peer to peer and transformative learning.

    Coaching and practice of dialogue and inquiry methods using action research and somatic inquiry.

    Tutoring in most areas based on developing critical thinking, study skills, support and practice of personal learning needs. I am often told I “teach difficult things well.”

This site is an internet place that intends to honor and appreciate difference and the power of diversity and inclusion towards solving problems creatively; a place to learn and to celebrate the phenomena of connecting, via the internet: the virtual in service to the real.

We celebrate the individual and the greater whole in relationship. We see the world as sacred and objectify "it" as separate only to serve a greater sense of wellness for all.
