Skywalker Payne, author, professional oral storyteller is the founder of Vibrant Velvet Voice. Conciliation is the action of stopping some one from being angry  or mediating between two disputing people or groups. In the process of healing your story, you remove anger, known or hidden. This process of healing your story works for individuals, businesses, or communities.

This concept is the foundation of many projects such as:
