IAHL's mission is to transform the practice of law, through education and support of holistic practice.
The only living being capable of completely transforming, down to its DNA, is the butterfly. It starts as an egg, a small ball of potential. Then the egg hatches and becomes a caterpillar. The caterpillar eats and grows and molts and eats and grows and molts some more. When it's done growing, the caterpillar retreats into its chrysalis, where the magic happens. After this transformation, it is a completely different entity, with colorful wings and the gift of flight.
Mark your calendars for the next two IAHL Teleseminars! The calls are free and open to all. If you can't make the calls, IAHL members have access to the recordings in our teleseminar archives.

Today the book is available on line. The publication of Lawyers as Peacemakers, Practicing Holistic, Problem-Solving Law, inspires me to share that it takes a village to write such a book.

With deep thanks to my collaborators and contributors:

Editor and friend Sheila Boyce, for her willingness to step on my toes when it was called for, and ABA Editor Erin Nevius, for actually liking what I had to say.
Karen Werve Grant and Michael Grant, great writers and friends, who stepped up to work on the profile vignettes.
Eileen Dunn, Jane Faulkner, and Jill Dahlquist, who helped take care of the parts of me that are not my mind.
