Blooming aLIVE :: Speaking & Presentations

I speak to people who are ready to bloom BIGGER — as leaders, healers, teachers & creative spirits. I shine brightest in groups of fifty people or more, and I engage audiences with interactive exercises, memorable stories and clear teaching. I especially love bringing my blend of practical mysticism and cultivated wisdom to audiences of care-taking & counseling professionals. 

I’ve got four polished keynotes tucked in my back pocket. Take a peek below, and let me know how I can inspire your audience to new heights of service, self-trust and full-bodied aliveness.

Blooming Truths: Flowering Fully Into Life

What I've learned from my years studying and photographing flowers — and how you too can learn to flower fully into all areas of your life from the wisdom found in flowers. 

Blooming BIG — No Matter What 

You’re a unique flower, and every flower is designed to unfold into fullness. Find your ideal conditions for growth, transformation & happiness — no matter what’s held you back in the past or what's going on in your life now — and serve the world with greater strength, by allowing yourself to come fully alive.

Never Say Goodbye 

Whether you’ve lost a loved one — or a cherished piece of your core identity — you never have to say goodbye, forever. With inner work, meditation & ancient teachings on the soul's journey, we can forge new relationships with lost elements of our lives, and connect on a spirit-plane with those who have crossed over.

Real Life, Recaptured

When you’re caring for those at the end of their lives, true stories & memories call out to be captured. Learn to create a space for therapeutic biography work — both for yourself, and the people you love — through interviews, free-writing & memoir-curation.

My speaking rate slides on a need-based scale — I’ll often speak to non-profit groups for a reduced rate or free, and my for-profit rate falls at about $300 an hour, depending on travel logistics.

Contact me with a few words about your event, venue or organization, and what kind of presentation would make your audience bloom.
