Ashley Bell writes, makes stuff using a variety of artistic media, and teaches creative process and yoga-inspired movement.  From childhood, she's been interested in helping others recognize and embrace their unique gifts, challenges and perspectives.  Ashley believes that when we willingly look at and listen to ourselves more honestly, when we start to see how complex and contradictory we are as individuals, that we become more compassionate and respectful community members.  In this way, creative process can be one of the most readily available and powerful tools for changing the world.
