Learning with JOY!
I was meant to be a teacher! In my 10th grade English class, I presented an oral report, inviting everyone to participate. My instructor, Mrs. Davis, later declared that I was a natural born teacher! I took her advice and made teaching my career. Although the focus of instruction has shifted along the way, my higher purpose has always remained the same: to inspire, uplift, encourage, ignite, awaken, and enlighten all students to see the beauty within, to fully express themselves, and to discover their unique gifts.
“A mind when stretched by a new idea never regains its original dimensions."
My life has been a laboratory for everything I teach. My inner awakening began in 1984, after the birth of my daughter. Since that time, I’ve learned to live more courageously and to welcome transformation as a path to personal freedom and joy. I have created and led multiple workshops on inner growth experiences, public speaking, and the art of self-expression.
Inspired by my experiences, I created curriculum for both COURAGEOUS LIVING and EXPRESS YOURSELF WITH JOY so I could bring these life-enhancing teachings to others.
In the COURAGEOUS LIVING classes we explore:
How FEAR develops, serves us, and limits us
How BELIEF SYSTEMS are formed and the control they have over us
How the POWER OF WORDS and thoughts create our reality
How to distinguish MIND CHATTER from the INNER VOICE
How FORGIVENESS is necessary for true freedom
How practicing GRATITUDE can transform your life.
In the EXPRESS YOURSELF WITH JOY classes we focus on:
FREEING your SPEAKING VOICE through the use of humor, imagination, and creativity
ENGAGING with others in fun SELF-EXPRESSION ACTIVITIES
LEARNING to CONSTRUCT and DELIVER a PERSONAL TALK
DEVELOPING CONFIDENCE and EASE while expressing yourself with joy!
In all of my classes, a selected topic is introduced, explored, and experienced through personal sharing and experiential activities.
I'd love to work with you to meet your needs whether it be single workshops, weekly consecutive classes, or as a presenter for personal growth retreats.
The topics covered encourage increased self-awareness, assist in creating community and deeper connection to others, foster a greater sense of freedom, peace and joy, and offer tools that invite personal transformation.
Contact me if I can be of assistance with your own Courageous Living!
