This blog is a documentary of my going “back to school” as a student of Truth, Love, and Beauty.

Truth – Real Speaking

I enrolled in Gail Larsen’s workshop in June 2009, and am planning to become a certified Real Speaking facilitator in January 2010. I was inspired by my own experience of speaking my truth out loud to strangers, and I want to continue a deeper exploration. I’ll talk about moments of encountering my truth, and also my practice of being part of courageous conversations.

Love – Life Coaching

Teaching has always been a great love of mine. I am now enrolled in the Martha Beck Life Coach Training, which begins in September 2009 and runs through May 2010. There are weekly Monday morning calls and corresponding homework, which I’ll both whine about and celebrate here.

Beauty – Music Healing

I named my teaching business The Music Within Us. I’ve always wondered what that name really meant. I think I’m beginning to find out now. I’m enrolled in the Sound, Voice, and Music Healing certificate program at California Institute for Integral Studies (or, “CIIS”). I attend every Tuesday evening as well as weekend workshops about twice a month, from September 2009 through June 2010. Maybe I’ll even post some recordings here.
