FIND YOUR SPARK: Journal to the Self®

Have you thought about starting – or reviving – a journal-writing practice but don’t know where to begin? Let’s connect pen to paper and find the spark to keep it going! Journal/expressive writing is an effective tool to help strengthen well-being, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve mood. It can even help accelerate the healing process and clarify a cluttered mind, making way for full engagement with people, places and experiences. I’ll share simple and proven methods for writing for yourself based on the work of Kathleen Adams, author of Journal to the Self® and founder of the Center for Journal Therapy.

Join me on 3 Saturdays in September starting September 14 for this thoughtful series based on the Journal to the Self® work of Kathleen Adams. 1-4pm. Training includes a Journal to the Self® workbook and 1 private consult. Pre-reg required. Contact me for details.

WORDS AND STARS: USING THE CYCLES OF THE SUN & MOON FOR SUSTAINABLE SELF-CARE

Regardless of what you think about astrology, it can be a wonderful tool to re-tell yourself stories about yourself through a gentle, poetic lens. Using Journal to the Self, a research-based method to help deepen or jump start your journal-writing practice, we’ll track on the cycles of the sun and moon – as well as those found in your own star map – to develop a customized plan for renewable, sustainable self-care. Space is limited to 5 explorers. 3 Saturdays starting August 3. 1-4pm. Includes workbook and astro insights. Pre-registration and birth data required. Contact me for details.

LOGIC, MEET INTUITION: USING TAROT TO MAKE SENSE OF NONSENSE

Are you ready to gently yet courageously respond to that which is calling for your attention? Or maybe you’re just looking for ways to bridge your own logic and intuition, body and spirit? Join me for a journey into the symbols and stories of the Tarot – the archetypal Hero’s Journey that we all experience. Through connecting with these big themes, we re-tell the stories we tell ourselves and strengthen our courage and self-compassion to meet life’s daily uncertainties.

No experience necessary. Bring a journal, writing instrument and a tarot deck if you have one. If not, I’ll have plenty of for you to play with. Pre-reg required. Next session: coming soon! Contact me for details.

BRAVE & ENGAGED: GROUP COACHING FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO RECLAIM THEIR POWER AND MAKE SHIFT HAPPEN

Are you ready to make some real, tangible, in-your-bones change? Do you keep getting close but don’t quite arrive? Is something/someone holding you back, professionally and/or personally? Through it all, how well are you taking care of yourself? In a safe and supportive group format, we’ll follow the solar and lunar cycles to find answers, track our intentions, and work with our energy – all to build personal clarity and power. If you’re ready to do some real magic and make shift happen, you’ve come to the right place! Group size limited to 7 and will begin Fall 2019. Email me for details and an application.

UNDERSTANDING MOTIVATION TO MAXIMIZE INFLUENCE

Successful leaders, whether they hold positions of formal or informal power, understand that motivating and influencing others takes mindfulness, skill, and intention. It also requires an ability to establish a connection with diverse types of people, even if we don’t like them

This training focuses on the skill of paying attention to how people talk, rather than what they talk about, in order to match their patterns, build stronger rapport, and motivate and influence positive behaviors. These patterns allow us to understand:

  • how people get motivated
  • how they process information
  • how they make decisions

…which, in turn, can help us communicate more effectively and have more influence.

Recognizing these patterns takes skill and practice. Using the Language and Behavior Profile® developed by Shelle Rose Charvet, we start by identifying how you get and stay motivated. Next, we review these simple and effective communication strategies in 8 2-hour interactive workshops. This series is best for teams or departments, although anyone who wishes to have more influence will find this material beneficial.

HOW TO BUILD RAPPORT WITH JUST ABOUT ANYONE!

Personal and professional effectiveness, satisfying relationships and any change process all rely on two things: clear communication and a willingness to self-reflect. We can be great at communicating our position, but if we’re not willing to connect, listen and respond accordingly, true rapport is absent. In this training, we identify our own communication patterns and desired outcomes, review some nonverbal communication principles, and practice concrete strategies to build stronger personal and professional rapport – with just about anyone! 2 4-hour classes.

SELF-COMPASSION & THE POWER OF EMOTIONAL FLUENCY

Do you ever feel like your emotions are running the show? Would you like to have a friendlier relationship with the sometimes-mysterious, sometimes-stormy realm of your emotional life? You’ll learn how to build emotional intelligence and how to integrate some great tools into your self-care toolkit. Mindful self-compassion, journal-writing, and aromatherapy all build direct access to our conscious and unconscious minds, and help us trust our own experience and expand our emotional “fluency.” Bring a pen + your journal or your laptop.
