Workshops

Below is a sample of workshop descriptions I have used in my work with companies and organizations.

Blogging

  • From Blog to Book: How Blogging Can Launch Your Writing Career: I will discuss how creating and sustaining a blog can help you develop a consistent writing practice, overcome writer’s block and build and engage an audience for your work.

Caregiving

  • Caregiving for the Caregiver: Caregiving is a selfless gift that can leave you physically, emotionally, and spiritually exhausted. Drawing upon the positive affirmation of sacred traditions, goddess mythology, color and chakra therapies, I will guide individuals in learning how to replenish and renew themselves. They will have an opportunity to create a personal, sacred reminder of what it means to be empathic and kind towards themselves that they can turn to for renewal in the future.

Creativity

  • Fierce Living from Your Creative Heart: When’s the last time you allowed yourself the space to dream, imagine, and create something that inspired a deep feeling of peace, play, and fulfillment?  Wait no more. During this session, I will give you an opportunity to explore your inner archetypes (or personalities) and the role they play in your creativity through mindful writing exercises and discussion.  The takeaways include ways to tap into your intuition, imagination, and nurturing energy as “fierce living” growth opportunities.

Digital Storytelling

  • 7 Social Media Secrets of Nonprofit Digital Storytelling: During the workshop, I will discuss how stories connect people, what they cause them to reflect on, the various ways nonprofit organizations can tell stories with visual images and sound recordings, and the best source of stories.

Workplace Mindfulness

  • Creating Wellness with Mindful Living Practices: Is your stress level rising? Do you feel out of balance at home and work? Fret no more! I am just what the doctor ordered. I will lead a session filled with deep breathing exercises, meditation, office yoga, and self-care practices to enhance your life and career.
