What to Expect
As a transformational speaker, I bring no gimmicks or side shows. However, what I do bring is my signature talk; Critical Heart-Centered Play for Adults. This can be a 30, 45, 60 or 90 minute talk.
The talk is about "Play' the first major element in a larger program called the Power Play ReConnect Blueprint. The purpose of the program is to help people reconnect to their unique and original creative self.
Every adult new in childhood exactly who they were and who they wanted to become. Play was often an outlet to develop that desire. Overtime and circumstance that unique and original creative person was overlayed by other peoples desires and opinoins.
As the talk title implies its' purpose is to begin helping adults to bringing play into their lives as a critical component for well-being. This is 'play' not as in golf, or card games - not even tennis. This is about the play that they abandoned as they grew older and more respectable and more responsible. This is play as in mud pies, imagination and a good old snowball fight!
The talk is content rich with immediately useful applications. It will leave your audience ready to see life and play with a renewed sparkle in their eyes and hope in their hearts to transform their lives by restoring their unique and creative Self.
