Anastasia Rosen-Jones (formally Marcia E. Rosen), New Horizons Small “Zones Of Peace” Project Executive Director and Founder.
A personal and professional blog exploring the vision behind the New
Horizons ZOP and how it reflects my journey from blindness to recovery.
“I wear a thousand masks – and all of them are me.”
Anastasia, the storyteller, with editor, Marge Hulburt, prepare for a storytelling event at New Horizons Harpers Ferry Retreat Center, July, 2006.
Anastasia Rosen-Jones (formerly Marcia E. Rosen) is a retired psychotherapist with more than thirty-five years in the mental health field. Now a community development and violence prevention coach, consultant and trainer, she is the author of five books in progress, including "The Middle East Crisis In My Backyard" and numerous articles.
Anastasia makes her home in the mountains above Harpers Ferry where she is happily nested with the birds, the trees and the squirrels. She is at her most fulfilled watching the sunset from the deck of her home -- and/or -- sitting around a campfire in the woods telling and listening to stories.
One example: Jack Slattery, my Possible Society In Motion
Radio Show co-host, and I found ourselves transforming ourselves along with
elements/aspects of our communities. Just by “doing” what it has taken us
to bring our show to the point it is now. Now how about that?
Example #2: Sue and I do “IT” routinely. Results are,
oftentimes, subtle and slow in coming, but no less significant.
The formula is still rather elementary, yet, no less,
profound. If you look behind the scenes, weave back and forth, from the
behind to the front and all the places and spaces between, you might see what
we see. (Not so easy to say.)
I don’t know how, yet, to articulate the results we’ve realized
and/or how to, succinctly, describe how we attain them; changing the lead in ourselves into the gold we are producing. (It is only small karat gold at
that, right now, but GOLD nonetheless.)
But I can tell you this much; there is a formula! And, we’ve got it!
It’s still a bit craggy to apply (the “doing”), even rougher
to explain. But “we” (New Horizons and I and some of our friends) have got it!
Deriving from my/our inheritance from Murat to be passed on to whomever is open
to receiving it.
