Soul at Work

At a time when stress-related illnesses are on the increase, and employee burnout is common, my approach is designed to produce a definable sense of purpose and well-being for each employee, one that translates into both personal and corporate health, strength and vigor.

My coaching and interactive workshops show employees how to take responsibility for their lives, how to establish values and move in a direction of purposeful and positive change, change that improves their physical and emotional health, their ability to handle stress productively and their enthusiasm for life and work. I demonstrate how easy it is to make these changes and how quickly it is possible to see positive improvements in every area of their lives. All of this is facilitated in a comfortable atmosphere where learning is both focused and fun.

Workshops for the Workplace or Retreats

  • The Power of Words – A fun, one-hour presentation that shows participants both the negative and positive power of words, and teaches them how to choose those that help them achieve their purpose.
  • Living with Soul– A two-day workshop focused on what participants can do physically, mentally and emotionally to reduce stress and experience greater health and happiness. Sessions also discuss inspiration – the source of creativity and solutions to problems. This workshop may be combined with yoga and meditation to comprise a 3-day workshop/retreat.
  • In addition, clients may request any of the curricula presented in my yoga/holistic retreats, with or without yoga.  These can be offered as one, two or three-day seminars.  Themes include:
    • How to Live to be 100 (and healthy and happy)
    • Healing the Past
    • A Consciousness of Love
    • Peace, Love and Harmony
    • Awakening to Your Full Potential
    • Choosing Miracles
    • Living Your Life with Joy
    • Transitions after 50, 60, 70:  Finding Clarity and Inspiration
  • Customized Workshops – Let me know your needs and I will develop presentations and workshops to meet them.

Coaching & Spiritual Counseling

With an MA in Psychology and Philosophy, as well as Certification as a Louise Hay teacher, I’ve been coaching and counseling individuals since 2000. My coaching sessions help them to shift their lives from fear to confidence, from worry to trust, from conflict to harmony, from grief to serenity, and from sadness to joy. These changes improve their workplace efficiency; they also frequently improve their personal health and happiness.

Comments from Coaching Clients

I have learned the value of clear thinking and consciousness about the positive and negative messages I send myself and others.

I now realize how much my attitude plays a part in the negative feelings around me.

I’ve learned (in spite of my skepticism) that I can change my experiences for the better.

It is easy to let go of anger. Your exercise for dealing with anger is very powerful.

Thank you for your kindness, patience and expertise.
