Upcoming Events: Summer 2019

I’m trying something new this summer season! 

Instead of hosting my own events and hoping my community can attend in the flux of summer travels, I’m inviting my community to help co-create events for your localized communities (i.e.: book groups, women’s groups, neighborhood friends, spiritual sisterhoods). I want to bring valuable content and experiences to you in your homes or small/local event spaces.

Play and learn with me! My areas of expertise include,

  • Brave & Tender: Rebranding sensitivities as a strength (understanding the challenges and gifts of Empaths & Highly Sensitive People)
  • Reduce Stress and Play More (personal & spiritual resilience skills)
  • Women on Fire: Owning the power of your voice and story
  • Dancing with the Mystery: Letting go into the life you desire

You can also check out my speaking page on my website to learn more about my approach to speaking, sharing stories and facilitating dynamic and experience-based events.

Want to partner on a summer event?

Please complete this contact form or call/text me at 503-381-5873.

My monthly Brave & Tender Club Meetup will be back for its fall series on Wednesday, August 28, 7 pm @ Wayfinding Academy.

Brave & Tender Workshop: Unpacking the incredible strengths of sensitive people 

Saturday, April 27 | 10:00am-2:30pm | Wayfinding Academy (8010 N Charleston Ave, Portland, OR, 97203)

Have you ever been called “too sensitive” but deep inside feel you have your own resilient qualities? Ones that people who are “tougher” than you might greatly benefit from?

Or do you often learn about metaphysical beliefs and subtle energy practices and wonder, “Why didn’t I learn this as a child? It would have changed my perception of myself and my gifts.”

In this workshop, I’ll unpack and help you explore the diverse and incredible strengths of sensitive people.
