The Beyond the Story workshop focus is on the power of language (how words affect thoughts, thoughts affect emotions, reactions, choices & behaviors). It is a journey of continuous learning and sharing with others what I didn’t know at twenty-three years old when I was experiencing hardship and accepted mental health services. Sharing information that could bring forth awareness is the Why behind doing the work. With knowledge I get to make inform choices for my overall best human experience.
Getting the opportunity to present my workshop BEYOND THE STORY: Letting Go Judgment of Others and Getting to Know Thyself at the Alternatives 2019 Conference (#AltCon2019) Standing Together, Celebrating Our Gifts, Raising Our Voices hosted by the National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery (NCMHR) at theCatholic University of America (CUA) in Washington, DC, July 7 - 11, 2019.Thank you to everyone that made it possible because of your dedication to human rights and dignity!
Learning it's about the Presence not about the Pretty. Learning from many teachers and getting to understand stillness and being, it could be driving in the car or laying on the grass, just staying aware of what is happening inside and around me. The best thing is getting to "know thyself."
In This Moment is sharing my story in spoken word. It is about moving forward, learning about myself, family history and life sometimes very difficult circumstances. Consciously unlearning the things that I unconsciously learned that defeated me from having my best human experience what that means for me. Holding on to hope and possibilities.
