One of the great blessings of this past year has been the many opportunities I’ve had to partner with other people and to contribute to some beautiful products. Here’s some news about a few products I’ve contributed to, and a few other things you might like to know about:
I’m honoured to be a contributor to Shahrzad Arasteh‘s lovely book Nourish Your Career. Shahrzad is a holistic career counselor and a beautiful person who’s been gracious enough to share her wisdom with the students in my communication classes a couple of times. Her book is full of great tips not only about your career but about your life. One of the fun things I love about it is that she asked contributors to share career tips AND a favourite recipe, so you get lots of good advice, and then you get to nourish yourself with great food. You can order it on her website or on Amazon.
I was thrilled when Ariane Hunter (a talented photographer and lovely person) invited me to contribute to this beautiful free e-book. It’s full of inspiration and insight that began with the question, “What is the key ingredient to living an inspired, purpose-driven life?” My contribution is about two of my favourite things, mandalas and questions. You can download it for free here.
As many of you know, I walked 100 km. with Cath Duncan, largely because we became bonded through our shared grief stories. Cath and I have had a lot of conversations about the journey through grief and about how we can help other people through their own unique journeys. Together with Kara Jones, Cath has created the Creative Grief Coaching Certification and I’m thrilled to be one of their faculty members. I’ll be sharing a lesson on body art journaling and will be interviewed about some of the creative processes that I’ve developed for walking through grief. If you work in any helping professions (coaching, healthcare, therapy, chaplaincy, etc.), I’m sure this course will be immensely helpful for you.
I’ve been streamlining my products a little and decided to offer all of my e-books for the same low price ($15), or $35 for all three of them as a package deal. All three books are labours of love and I’m quite proud of them. Click “shop” to check them out. (And… please let me know if you have any trouble with the purchasing process. The first person who made a purchase after I made the changes found a few glitches – I hope they’ve been worked out.)
I’d really love to have a few more people sign up for my upcoming creative discovery class, so if you’re in Winnipeg and you need a creative boost, some life-changing self-discovery, and a whole lot of fun, come join us.
I put together a list of all of the topics I’ve developed workshops, classes and keynote speeches for, and the length of the list was a surprise even for me. If you’re planning an event, retreat, conference, etc. and you’d like to include any of these topics (or anything else I write about on my blog), I’d love to talk to you about how I can be of service to you.
7. Teach Now
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Teach Now is one of the best investments I’ve ever made. The wisdom I gained from it is put to use every time I teach (and I’ve been teaching quite a lot since I first took the course). The people behind it (Jen Louden and Michele Lisenbury Christensen) are some of the most beautiful, authentic people you’ll find online. I like the course (and the people) so much, in fact, that I signed up twice and then was a teaching guide the third time it was offered. It’s being offered again, and if you do any teaching, or dream of doing any, I’d encourage you to check it out.
