what was your path to get you where you are now?
When I was a young and a single mother in my 20s, a book I read by Shakti Gawain prompted me to write down my first vision statements: to have the time to be with my children during vacations; to have choice and flexibility in my work; and to be paid to be creative. I remember holding on to some of those ideas as if they were my lifeline. Over a period of many years, they did indeed airlift me out of what would have been a monotonous, cubicle lifestyle. Also in the 1980s, when I worked as an environmental analyst, part of me knew that thoughts and feelings and words could be just as toxic as benzine or mercury or plutonium. I never took the time to write what I was sensing until much later in life–mainly because I thought other people would think I was crazy or that I was’t credible. Now, 25 years later, I see that the idea of relating thoughts to toxicity was a valid one. That was the voice of my intuition guiding me all along. What’s gotten me here now is that I spend more of my time listening to my inner voice than I do denying it.
what can we expect from your speakeasy at whistler?
Participants can expect a very direct, real interaction between myself and them. Questions my workshop seeks to explore: what do you want your legacy to be? What do you want to live to see? Who do you want to be on the journey of your own life? My workshop will host a multi-dimensional dialogue between myself and the audience about how big we are allowing ourselves to be–in this life and on this planet. Each participant will receive a gift of an igolu Scout book to guide them on their journey post-Wanderlust.
what is a goal you are working on (or one you recently accomplished)?
By Dec 2016, I address 10,000 people annually. One of the things I am most excited about is the upcoming opportunity to reach hundreds of potential goal-setters using Skillshare online hybrid class technology through a class I am teaching in October entitled “Author YOUR Life with Goal-Setting.” I love reaching new audiences through these new mediums.
The underlying motivations for this goal are very dear to my heart. It is essential that young people create the healthy images in their own minds of the world they want their children to inherit. While my training as an environmental analyst might seem on the surface to better suit many of the problems the world faces today, I truly believe it is critical that younger generations begin to harness the power of their superconscious mind so they can live in freedom and choice about their own lives. This training will define the difference between someone who lives to fulfill their own goals versus fulfilling the goals of another.
