Bethene LaMahieu – Volunteer Coordinator
Bethene’s seminal work in education touched thousands of people and provided a framework for creativity and change. As she has grown into the “something more” of her life, she created The Salon (2006), a context/framework for conversations and weaving connections.
“Practicing the art of focused conversation has commonalities with my practice of Kado, the path of flowers,” Bethene says. “Differences are apparent, too. Kado is a contemplative art. Conversation is interactive, collaborative, sometimes noisy, rowdy, messy and/or playful-and more. I am passionate about both.”
Bethene lives in New York City in the heart of the theatre district. Among her favorite things are fun with friends, theatre, music, rambles in Central Park, visits to museums and travel. A favorite quote: “The mind determines what’s possible. The heart surpasses it.”
