Welcome to Heart-Head-Hands: Everyday Living for Justice
You’ll find here an educational space focused on feeling, thinking, and doing (that is, everyday living) for justice.
As an educator, I take, as a starting point, that our fully embodied selves matter in the world. We can’t just think our way out of the incredible injustices, dehumanization, violence, and wrongdoing that characterize everyday life. We must feel and act, too.
We need our heart, head, and hands for envisioning and enacting a more just world. We need deep commitments to justice and an attitude of “try-try again” for striving to live out these commitments—both in everyday moments and for the long haul.
This vision guides the work you’ll find here, but don’t let BIG thinking fool you. There’s lots of attention to small matters, too. Weaving the mundane and material with deeply relational, ideological, and spiritual matters, this is a space for you. A messy, imperfect, human space. A space for making commitments, striving, learning, and unlearning.

Heart-Head-Hands is integral to my personal growth and to living my commitments. I’ve turned here for many things, including writing groups, (re)commitment hours, and coaching. No matter the offering, I so appreciate the thoughtfulness and the research that Beth puts into each one. I especially love the resources she shares, as they allow me to learn and to explore many of my questions.” —Chloe in California
Beth is a wonderful teacher: compassionate and tough and smart, smart, smart! Most of all, she teaches from the inside. She does the work. Just the teacher and guide I have needed over time.” —Kathy in Wisconsin
Beth’s work with Heart-Head-Hands has completely transformed my relationship to writing. I met Beth at the point where I was experiencing paralyzing writer’s block. Beth’s guidance, support, and caring helped ease my way back into writing. I’ve begun to love writing again. ” —Kylie in New York
Beth not only listens deeply but also reflects back the questions you didn’t even realize that you were asking, offering them out for future discernment.” —Jen in Wisconsin
