Empowering Relationships To Thrive
The research is clear. The quality of our relationships significantly affects our health and well-being, and impacts our families, communities, work, and spiritual life.
In the big and small moments alike.....
Our beliefs and how we communicate can make or break our sense of connection, belonging, and shared power with others. Services at Blue Heron are aimed at personal and interpersonal transformation, infusing conflicts with compassion and creativity, and creating a culture of connection and purpose in which everyone can thrive.
What big or small change are you looking to make to bring health, vitality, and peace to your relationships?

Creating a Culture of Connection
....where everyone's needs matter.
"Yarrow's close listening to my request to coach me in responding to decade's long stuck place I've experienced with a family member enabled me to see the light of opportunity and connection where I thought none existed"
"Yarrow facilitated a mediation between 4 people who had been working together closely in a very intense grassroots activist project when we were all falling apart. She mediated several interpersonal conflicts and even when I was hurting and wanted to hear more about how the other person was wrong, Yarrow was expressing herself with such clarity that it opened my eyes to the other side. I have asked her to be a facilitator for other people and for myself because she is clearly gifted."
