Scarlett Lunning

A Three Principles Communication & Relationship Coach, Scarlett Lunning, has been enthusiastically sharing the understanding of the Three Principles since 2006. She brings over twenty-five years of training, counseling, and facilitation experience to the Network. As a personal development coach, she focuses on helping people awaken to their capacity to resolve conflicts and develop healthy relationships with themselves, within families, within businesses, and cross culturally. Scarlett employs the understanding of the Three Principles of Mind, Thought, and Consciousness to increase our awareness that we are the “Thinkers,” thereby unlocking our freedom to respond to life as free agents.

Alice Bryan

Alice began sharing the Three Principles soon after her first training in 2004. The spark and clarity she gained from the Principles helped her bounce back from depression and other effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. As a founding member of 3PN, she has coordinated training initiatives and discussion groups for businesses, schools and community groups. Currently, Alice shares the Three Principles as a volunteer, mental health educator, and mentor for West Des Moines’ Youth Justice Initiative (YJI), through 3 Principles Network Second Saturdays, and with individuals in our community. She enjoys live music, spending time with family and friends and seeing more about life via the Principles each day.

Ashlee Swinton

Ashlee was first introduced to the Three Principles in 2009; however, it wasn’t until she attended the 3 Principles Global Community Conference in St. Paul in 2014 and “woke” up to the truth of this understanding, that her life began to unfold in a beautiful way! Currently, she is a Project Assistant with the West Des Moines’ Youth Justice Initiative; a Three Principles based restorative justice diversion program for youth. Helping young people create a plan to put things right in their community and pointing them, and their families, toward their own natural wisdom to help them experience more joy, despite their circumstances, is a passion of hers. She is happily married to a Kiwi (New Zealander) and is a proud “Bonus” mom to three creative, teenage step-sons. Favorite pastimes include traveling and meeting new people, sleeping in and reading in her hammock.

Claudia Henning

Claudia began studying the Three Principles in 2006. She didn’t initially understand how they were different than the mental health theories she’d previously learned and had no idea how deeply the understandings would change her personal and professional life. She is deeply grateful. Claudia is the Director and one of the creators of the West Des Moines’ Youth Justice Initiative (YJI). The Three Principles of Psychological Functioning are central to YJI processes. YJI youth shift in their outlook about life as a result of maturation and YJI’s focus on the capacity we all have to make better choices and to create happier lives. Claudia has two grown daughters and five grandchildren. Going on walks with her dog, Trixie, is her biggest joy!

Karla Hanson

Karla has lived within a 50-mile radius of Des Moines, Iowa for her entire life. Yet, she feels globally connected as she holds dual citizenship in Iran. At age 40, Karla started at the University of Iowa graduate school of social work and earned her MSW in 2001. She is a therapist in private practice at Peace of Mind, in Clive, Iowa. Karla is grateful for the gift of creativity that springs from an understanding of the Three Principles. Currently Karla is working with Ami Chen Mills-Naim, Three Principles trainer and award-winning author, to produce a fairy tale to carry the message of the Three Principles to children and to the adults who nurture them.
