For over a decade, Ami has taught principles of innate mental health and resiliency in jail settings, community settings, schools, and with youth in juvenile hall and court schools. This work led to her initiation of the National Community Resiliency Project, funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and sponsored by her non-profit, the Center for Sustainable Change.
The author of the book for youth, “The Spark Inside,” Ami was an award-winning investigative journalist for many years. Her studies of various forms of spirituality led her to conclude that “the Truth is everywhere.” On the Front Porch will feature Ami Chen, and guests who speak to the “Three Principles of Mind, Consciousness and Thought,” first shared by Sydney Banks … and the mental health and wisdom that lie within; as well as the most enlightened authors and speakers of our day, whose work is to wake up humanity. Come sit “on the front porch” with teachers from many backgrounds, and with ordinary, everyday people, who have found that freedom and Truth, as formlessness and within ALL form, is our essential nature as human beings.
Topics will include: a new psychology and the “Three Principles,” parenting, relationships, education, community, work life and, always, the constant nowness and presence of pure Consciousness, of mental health and well-being in us all.
