About Barbara

Barbara Braver grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where at age 12 she started a one-page weekly newspaper called Neighborhood News. It lasted for a full summer, to the amusement of several indulgent neighbors. This was the beginning of the writing life.

After college graduation she moved to the Boston area, drawn by romantic notions of Emerson, Thoreau and Louisa May Alcott. Though this might have been an insubstantial motive, she has never been disappointed.

For most of her professional life, she worked for the Episcopal Church, including 18 years serving as the communication assistant for the Episcopal Church’s leader. Since retirement she continues writing, editing and leading retreats.

About Kathryn

Kathryn Hayward, MD co-founded and developed International Integrators because she loves to collaborate with others who share her vision for global Integrative Health. She offers her experience in the practice of conventional medicine as a primary care internist at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, and in Integrative Health in her private practice, Odyssey Journey. Kathryn marvels at the power of collective, conscious action on the part of like-minded individuals to manifest change and loves contributing to that action.
