Introducing Anastasia The Storyteller
From this beginning, Ms. Rosen-Jones built her career forward, based on her assessment of how it is that a president of the United States of America can lie to the American people and lead many of them to believe him/her. Anastasia's story of how she discovered this emerges out of a prophecy she had at the time of the Watergate hearings. You can read it here. Obviously this background is of the utmost importance today in the era of the Trump presidency.
(Formerly Marcia E. Rosen)
Once past her entrepreurial years in D.C., Ms. Rosen-Jones went on to become a Transactional Analyis psychotherapist, a researcher of the Dark Side in society and politics, a healer and transformer of the Dark Side and author. Her clinical and organizational development theories and intervention strategies, evolved under the guidance of psychiatrist, Martin G. Groder, M.D. provided her with the expertise she needed to excel in these areas.
Anastasia is now a retired psychotherapist, social researcher and community development and violence prevention consultant and coach and public speaker whose touching and inspiring personal journey is offered through her books, as well as on her blogs, as teaching stories.
(* The Middle East Crisis In My Backyard: How Communities Come Apart And How They Heal; publication is expected in 2019. Publishing options are now being considered for the package of all six books of Anastasia's.)
Two of Anastasia's three new books (in progress); To See Or Not To See And The Art Of Transcendant Living; A True Story Of Clarity and The Middle East Crisis In My Backyard: How Communities Come Apart And How They Heal chronicle Anastasia's challenges of re-entering the post 9/11 culture of the U.S.A. as seen through the expert eyes of one who is both a private American citizen and a community development and violence prevention specialist.
Written after she regained her eyesight, Ms. Rosen-Jones invites the American public to walk with her as she confronts limited sight and challenges the obstacles to regaining her vision after an extended time, in a mainstream America, often not seeing so much that is happening around them. From this perspective Anastasia asks citizens of this country to examine their own blind spots, be they physical, emotional or spiritual, and face up to their personal resistance to altering habitual patterns; the culture-wide acceptance of minimizing what might be right in front of their eyes; the denial and acceptance of lying that pervades our society and politics. Along with this confrontation to others, Anastasia also offers an equally strong message of hope.
This art form is being introduced through the various programs and projects of the New Horizons’ Small “Zones of Peace” Project, most comprehensively through New Horizons' Coffee House Conversations Project. At the present time, the most extensively traansforming of these programs is the Bus Ride Story Adventure. The Bus Ride Story Adventure was created and written by Murat Yagan.
Anastasia's third book, Hot Pants, Motorcycles And K Street, has an entirely different tone. It gets down into the dark and the dirty of the Washington political and social scene with Ms. Rosen-Jones sharing how her close to ten years involvement in Washington's fast track, as a young, celebrity entrepreneur served to be the fire pit of her initiation into adult life.
