Lu is a Business Administrator, Satyananda Yoga Teacher and a Karma Sannyasin with a deep interest in Buddhism and the Vedas. It was at a vedanta retreat that Lu was introduced to Nonviolent Communication. The principles and practices of NVC clicked with Lu as her and her husband aim to implement a collaborative and humane workspace in their co-owned bakery in Brazil.
Lu is passionate about bridging communities through a deep understanding of what is shared humanity. Lu is happy to be a new board member after spending time with the HNVC board at the 2018 International Intensive Training in Port Aransas, Texas. She sees the possibilities of connection across the waters to bring support and awareness to her global south community.
