Topic: Green Light Conversations
Presenter: Susan Chapman MA
Susan Chapman is a licensed Marriage and Family therapist, with a MA in Buddhist and
Western Psychology from Naropa University. She worked as clinical director for domestic violence treatment
programs in Alaska and Colorado. She also has life-long experience in contemplative spirituality, beginning
with the Convent of the Sacred Heart in Vancouver and most recently with nine years mentoring with Buddhist
teacher Pema Chodron at Gampo Abbey that included a strict three year retreat. Susan moved back to the lower
mainland in the fall of 2008 with the intention of bringing her training in mindfulness into the field of
communication, which is the essence of all relationships. Her business, Green Light Conversations, offers
practical trainings in a retreat-like setting that include space awareness and mindfulness exercises as
well as small group dialogue. These programs are based on innovative 'we-first' models she developed that
reflect the 'radically fresh' principles of contemplative psychology.
