As a wilderness guide, experiential educator, and group counselor, Kirstin has been facilitating councils for over twenty-five years. She has taught council facilitation in courses at Marlboro College, Colby College, and Lesley University as well as in staff training workshops for a variety of organizations. Council practice is also central to a program she founded called the Earth Leadership Cohort – a training for young adults, inspired by the work of Joanna Macy. Kirstin is a founding member (with Bonnie Mennell and Paul LeVasseur) of the New England Council Collective which offers Council I and Council II trainings and supports a growing network of council carriers in the Northeast. She lives on a homestead in Marlboro, Vermont with her husband and twin daughters and a steady stream of WWOOF volunteers.
