Speaking and Teaching
I have had the pleasure of leading retreats and speaking for 25 years
Weekend women’s retreats, parish-wide weekends, clergy conferences, and leadership council retreats are a few examples. I have also led retreats for civic organizations that needed some time away together to make some changes and gather inspiration for ways to move forward.
I have also been honored to be a keynote speaker at several large conferences. I bring my years as a teacher and speaker as well as my love for all things creative to my retreats and speaking. I know how to build community and create a safe space for participants to relax and enjoy.
Some topics from recently led retreats and speaking engagements include:
- Forgiveness: How Free Do You Want To Be?
- Forgiving The Self: The Hardest Job Of All
- The Transformative Power Of Everyday Life
- Living in Uncertainty, Acting With Conviction
- Blessed Are The Peacemakers: Peace Within Our Selves.
- Blessed Are The Peacemakers: Peace In Our Faith Communities
- The Relationship Project: A Weekend For Couples
- Compassion, Feminine Style
- The Questions Christ Asks Of Us
- Sabbath: What Do You Hear?
- Reclaiming The Archetype Of The Crone
- Me And My Shadow
- Ordinary Miracles
- Discernment: How Do I Know?
