Sarah Ann began her training in non-violent communication, reflective listening, and conflict resolution in 2010 as a teacher at Play Mountain Place, a humanistic school in Los Angeles. There, she experienced how effective these tools are in resolving conflicts between children and saw a deep need for this work with adults– as parents, friends, and romantic partners. She developed and gave her first “Cultivating Empathy” workshop in 2017 at Desert Hearts and has since given it at Desert Daze and other events in Los Angeles. She is currently offering Cultivating Empathy as an ongoing class at Peace Yoga Gallery in Los Angeles. In addition to her empathy work, she helped produce Disclosurefest in 2019 and is currently finishing her degree in Child Development. She plans to continue expanding her work with parents and children in addition to offering classes for adults.
