Gayle Lindell

Gayle was introduced to the 3 Principles understanding in 2012, at Salt Spring Island while one of their daughters was enrolled in Youth Justice Initiative. Having previously participated in various interventions with struggling teens, her introduction to the 3 Principles totally revolutionized her approach to who we all are as individuals. We ARE the Principles of Mind, Thought, and Consciousness. This understanding impacts how we live our personal lives as well as how we relate with others. To support her understanding and practice of the Principles, she has attended various trainings which include George and Linda Pransky,  Barbara Patterson,  Bill and Linda Pettit, and Amy Johnson.  She recently became a Certified Rewilder Guide through a training with Angus and Rohini Ross. Her passion is to support individuals to experience their optimal well-being. “Look deep inside your soul; this is where you will find the answer.” The Missing Link, Sydney Banks. As a Christian, Gayle integrates her Bible-based beliefs and values in application of this understanding. “Be still and know that I am God,” Psalm 46:10.
Gayle has been married for 44 years to her husband, Larry.  They have 5 children and 8 grandchildren. Personal experiences have included two daughters with eating disorders and one daughter who was adopted from China and has struggled with extensive abandonment and attachment issues. She describes her life as a “pilgrimage” as it has been, and remains, a journey to a deeper understanding of herself and God.

Jodi Tschudin


Jodi was introduced to the Three Principles in spring of 2018 when her family attended a 3P Restorative Justice Family Class offered by the Youth Justice Initiative in West Des Moines. She immediately began watching videos and reading 3P books to gather all the information she could about the mind, thought and consciousness. Seeing the change that it brought into her life, she wanted to share the Three Principles with others. Jodi started working as a Project Assistant at YJI and now teaches the same class that she attended. She “plants the seed” of the Three Principles and hopes that others can find them as freeing as she did. She is passionate about young people learning the Three Principles, so they can use the tools to have better mental health as they go through school and beyond.
Jodi is happily married to an IT geek, has three adult daughters, and one nine year old son. She enjoys reading, spending time engaging with youth in the community, teaching the older generation about technology and snuggling with her two dogs & one cat.
