"Beyond the symptomatology of suffering, there are wounds deep within ourselves, society and the planet that need to be heard and explored. Creative, inclusive, and sensitive partnerships are essential in peacebuilding. My life's work is committed to a participatory process of revisioning the future and building bridges of peace."

Samantha leads workshops, trainings and retreats for all ages, as well as advises a range of professionals and adult care-providers who work with children.
