Workshops, Coaching, & Courses
"Imagine being at a public event like a movie or game or play or religious service and before it starts, someone says to the crowd, 'Please stand if you've been affected by cancer.' What would you feel? Compassion? Empathy? Solidarity? Connection? Love? A setting of strangers and yet you mention cancer - a specific suffering - and there's instantly a bond."
- Rob Bell, Drops Like Stars
Maybe the above scenario doesn't resonate with you. But what about this...
Have you ever been in a class or a professional meeting, afraid to raise your hand even though you had something valuable to offer? Or afraid to ask a question because you didn't want your peers to perceive you in a certain way? Or have you ever been in a social gathering, afraid to share a personal story because you were fearful of judgement?
And did any of those scenarios lead to another person raising their hand and sharing EXACTLY what you were thinking? How much relief did you feel in that moment, realizing that you weren't alone?
There is something sacred about community.
Finding out that we go through the same trials as other people, connects us. In our shared humanity, we realize that we're not alone. We share similar fears, flaws, losses, moments of growth, and achievement with every other person. We grieve. We get angry. We Love.
But to find community, we have to be willing to share. And to share, we must first feel safe.
Each of the workshops that I offer are safe spaces, meant to build and nurture connection among the participants, as well as provide you with simple methods to apply in your daily life. They are judgment-free and shame-free zones, where we, together, will discover just how similar we are. HumanKind Workshops offer community and exercises for introspection. You will leave with simple techniques to transform ALL your connections.
If you are worried that a one-time workshop isn't enough to transform your relationships, please scroll down for opportunities to work with me and continue evolving your relationships. I offer personalized coaching as well as small group coaching.
And if you're the DIY type (like myself!), self-paced mini-courses are COMING SOON!
Let's build a more connected society!
