Ms. Kavanah was born in the 1950's in Portland, OR She was brought up in an Omni-Faith neighborhood.
This, exposure to so many different ways of expressing life and spirit began her 
Journey of Peace. 
Raised in a caring and compassionate home,her parents taught her at a young age that love is compassion in action. As a young child,she would accompany her father when he went to  serve the Homeless on Burnside sandwiches and hot coffee. 
As a child, Ms. Kavanah was invited to many of her neighborhood friends religious services. 
These ranged  from Unitarian to Jewish to Catholic. When she was in her teens she joined the Unitarian Church which was involved in many social justice activities;
 including a street medical aid for homeless people - especially  homeless teens. 
She also joined the Peace March for civil rights and was arrested and subsequently suspended from high school and threatened to not be allowed to graduate. This only fired her passion more and she became involved in changing the high school standards to fit current concerns of 'modern' students. 
These student concerns were social justice, peace and the environment. 
Ms. Kavanah  became  involved in creating a high school dedicated to the arts, social justice, peace and the environment. 
The high school is still a part of the Portland Educational Choice.
And
she won awards for the innovative work she did as a teen,
 including a City wide award for her
 Innovative Multi-discipline Art Project
that highlighted
social change. . 
Ms. Kavanah went on to college in NYC. She graduated with a BS in 
 Developmental Psychology and Early Childhood Education from Hunter City College. 
She also  studied with Innovative Educators at the New School of Social Research -
 Pioneers in changing the classroom and education model for schools everywhere. 
As part of her practicum with the NSSR, 
she worked with students who had 
reading challenges in Harlem.
 Ms. Kavanah designed a
 specialized reading program that included writing in sand, sand paper letters and physical activity. 
Her program was highly successful.
After she graduated, she returned to the West Coast and Eugene, OR. 
Here she worked with top innovators in the 
field of learning. 
She began teaching a combined
  kindergarten - 2nd grade classroom 
bringing fun, laughter, innovation and a desire to investigate and learn 
to her classroom and students for over 30 years.
 
In the mid 1970's Ms. Kavanah had her first child with her husband who eventually told her
 he was gay. 
His story of fear and hiding
 spurred her on to work for the 
rights of gay people - 
including their parental rights- 
tirelessly.
Ms Kavanah wrote a 
 multi-cultural curriculum that was 
implemented by the local school district. 
This included lesson plans on 
family structures. 
 Through her  classroom experience,
 Ms. Kavanah became aware of the 
effects of Domestic Violence
 on the learning ability of students. 
She then wrote a 
handbook outlining the 
devastating affects of 
violence in the home on 
students ability to do well in a school setting. 
This handbook was presented  to 
 teachers  and professionals - including judges- and became used statewide. 
Ms. Kavanah was invited to 
present her findings at conferences
 throughout the state of Oregon. 

In her early high school years in Portland OR , she was taught about the importance of a 
healthy eco-system.
 Ms. Kavanah has been a
 passionate environmentalist all of her life. 
And yes! Of course, 
she created a classroom curriculum 
just for the purpose of 
teaching ecology to students of any age. 
This curriculum is still used today. 


Ms. Kavanah has worked 
 all of her life for peace.
She has been a student of
 Peace through Active Process 
 all her life. 
Her many 
community activities 
reflect this 
dedication to
 Living Peace.

Heart Centered Living
Guide
We are all 'Compassion Activists'.
Every time we offer a hand,
a smile, an ear... 
Every time we
'show up in the world and are
our selves,
We are
compassion in action. 
However,sometimes we need a guide, a lumiere, a lighthouse, to remind us
who we are
and to help lead us
out of the storms of 'life' and 
back into the de' light
 where love, peace, understanding, kindness and compassion live.
Here we find joy, laughter, peace
and a sense of belonging. Here we find 'home'.lk
