Using my voice

I like to talk and I have been fortunate to be able to share my voice. Sometimes it is my actual voice. Other times it is my presence. And sometimes it is my writing.

2023 was another challenging year and yet again my research presentation game was strong with the help of several friends. #WomenRock

    • Acknowledge Your Superpower:
      • We are all superheroes. We are those people who possess abilities beyond those of ordinary people, typically using our strengths (mental and/or physical) to make the world a better place. This often entails fighting crime, fixing office machinery, finding the lost shoe or sock, empowering others, raising a family, and so many other things. So, why is it so hard for us to acknowledge our greatness? This workshop will challenge you to recognize and celebrate the superhero that you are. You will create your logo, explore your superpowers, and dance to your theme song. All theme songs will be curated into one list that you will be able to listen to over and over again as a reminder of the superhero that you are.

This is the podcast belonging to Lisa Nelson one of my fiercest bad-assed sistergirlfriends. She gave me the space to speak my truth and here it is. Fasten your seat belts, it ain’t all pretty. No more kumbaya.

If you need an in your face keeping it real course on social justice and history, check this out. I created this for an online yoga teacher training, but it works for anyone and the proceeds go to the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI).
