Welcome!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. I am an artist, coach, and facilitator based in Oakland, California. My coaching and facilitation practice centers direct communication, emotional authenticity, and body-based mindfulness, and my creative work has recently been featured in the National Queer Arts Festival and the San Francisco Transgender Film Festival.

For more than twenty years, I’ve been using principles of non-violent communication as a guide in my life and work. Over the last decade, I’ve integrated several methods of coaching as well as body-based mindfulness into practice as a facilitator in workshop spaces and organizations where I’ve worked. Now, I’m focusing my efforts on coaching, facilitation, and conflict mediation because I believe radical artists and activists deserve radical support as you take on the power and responsibility of making our world fairer and more beautiful.

If you have any questions about anything you see here, would like to hire me as a coach or facilitator, or are interested in commissioning film, music, or writing, please contact me here.

Delighted to be at your service,
Anand
