“Most people much of the time experience social reality as something exterior — as a world “out there” that is doing something to us. That is, most of us are unaware of the process that brings our social reality into being in the first place: the source from which our attention, intention, and action originate when we engage with others and with ourselves."

The Wisdom Walk to Self-Mastery Professional Series is a year-long, virtual (through Zoom), healing and growth-learning journey designed to respond to the emotional and spiritual intelligence needs of those who are dedicated to the health and well-being of children, families and communities. I have been developing this innovative resource for over a 20-year period. It is a product of my commitment to the evolution of human services from quantitative crisis interventions to qualitative, authentic experiences that heal and transform the quality of life for individuals, families and communities.
Self-mastery is the ability to respond to life’s challenges with wisdom, authenticity, creativity, and grace. Practicing Self-mastery is a viable alternative to the typical results of stress among human service professionals -- burn-out, despair, and emotional sedation. The Wisdom Walk Pro Series will provide a safe and supportive passage for you to travel through your inner landscape and discover how to establish and/or enhance your own unique practice of Self-mastery. Together we will explore what is required to enable you to show up emotionally and spiritually intelligent for your colleagues and those you serve, and without attaching to or numbing yourself from their pain.
The framework for the series is based upon the ancient medicine wheel of the Dagara Tribe of Burkina Faso, West Africa, of which I am a Wisdom Keeper. The medicine wheel teaches a powerful mythology for individual and collective meaning-making. This allows for a variety of cognitive, affective, and behavioral learning activities that foster Self-knowledge, Self-Awareness, and Self-love. This year, I am offering two cohorts, no more than 20 persons in each, that will meet bi-monthly for six Zoom sessions, and work in learning groups in-between those sessions.
The cost is $50 per Zoom session, or $300 total.
You are invited to a no-cost, 30-minute Zoom meeting in February, where you will have the opportunity to learn about my background and my "why" for providing this type of learning, healing, and growth journey. There will also be time for questions and answers, and follow-up information for those who choose to go on the journey in 2024.
