At the end of 2003 and 2007 she co-facilitated (with Allan Rudner) a series of forums called "She says /He says - peace talks for the battle between the sexes". The aim of the forums was to bring women and men together in a space of reconciliation to talk about their fears and misunderstandings and joys - and thereby come to forgiveness and greater aliveness together.
