Phyllis Kimmel Libby, visual artist and writer, has taught home- based Neurodevelop-mental therapy to families of brain- injured children in Western and Eastern Europe, Latin America, Australia and Japan since 1977. Her family: Odessa Jews, Czech Catholics and Hungarian Lutherans were musicians, sculptors, goldsmiths, teachers, visual artists, farmers and writers.
She embraced their har-rowing stories and those of her WWII survivors: her late husband; the French who kept secret about Jews in hiding; a woman who saw Oradour-sur-Glane a few hours after
its infamous massacre—and many of her readers of in-ternational backgrounds. She spent several days living with a Jewish woman who survived Auschwitz.
Phyllis graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and the University of Pennsylvania, (BFA), at-tended the Barnes Founda-tion, the New York Studio School, and has a BS and MS from the City University of New York. She was a senior director at The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential in Philadelphia for fourteen years. She is certified by the Kushi Institute and is a student and therapist of the Upledger Institute.
Phyllis' long-standing friend- ships with families and col-leagues across the globe have given her a lifetime of insight into the human brain and heart. She will be pleased to have you keep in touch with us, even if there are times we cannot promptly return your emails.🌲🌲
