Classes and Workshops
NEW Workshops! 4 Transcendent Days…
I’ve been teaching Bullying Prevention in schools along with parenting for the last 7 years, and after every assembly, teachers, administrators and parents often comment how they wish they had our Soul Shoppe tools for adults. Well, they’re here! Now you can parent yourSELF using these brilliant tools that, when simplified, create amazing stepping stones to self-esteem and awareness for children, and when explored in full, bring deep insights and powerful practical wisdom to adults.
Four half-day workshops will take you on a journey that will change how you see yourself and leave you feeling empowered to change old habits, clear out what’s blocking you in your life, communicate powerfully and cleanly, and connect more deeply than you’ve ever connected before. Big promise? Yeah! Join us to make it happen! Take one class individually or take them all – each class functions completely on its own.
The first day in our series focuses on Soul Shoppe’s vision for us as members of this human circle. Who are you? Join us for an exploratory day where we’ll tap deeply into how you see yourself, where there might be some hidden demons or old patterns trying to trip you up in one of five dimensions: intelligence, worthiness, personal power, capability/capacity and fun. Walk away with tools that will practically and specifically help you raise your awareness, confidence, humility and self-esteem in these areas and move more powerfully through your life. $125 or $100 if you register for all four classes in the series. If money is an issue, please contact me directly. New class will be happening in June/July, contact me to find out the schedule.
Our 2nd session will change how you feel. Literally. We will focus on that friend that’s always with us, whether we want it there or not – our feelings! Just how do feelings store in our brains and hearts? Learn how to transform overwhelm, anger, sadness, loneliness and fear. How can we drop our judgments of others and ourselves and move through our feelings instead of resisting, suppressing, denying or over-indulging them? Great for couples, individuals, parents, or anyone with feelings. $125 or $100 if you register for all four classes in the series. New class will be happening in June/July, contact me to find out the schedule. If money is an issue, please contact me directly.
Have you ever noticed that sometimes people just don’t get what you mean to say? Or they over-react to what you say? Or they just don’t listen at all? Or the say they hear you but then don’t do anything differently? Our third workshop focuses on how to listen and communicate with others to really get seen and heard. You’ll learn about communicating with a depth, clarity, and consciousness that will bring you more of what you really want. Learn what over 100,000 teachers, students and parents learn every year about what really makes our communications loving and successful. Also – how to help your children with this biggie… Sat, 5/5/12 9:30am – 1pm $125 or $100 if you register for all four classes in the series. New class will be happening in June/July, contact me to find out the schedule. If money is an issue, please contact me directly.
Our fourth session will take you deeply into yourself so that you can relate to others from a place of true connection – that place where you and the other person feel like you are both relaxed and deeply held by each other, defenses truly down – in any of your relationships. Move past anxiety, self-consciousness and story into connection, friendship, and defenses-down honesty. The magic of Soul Shoppe, creating connection wherever we go, will come to life for you and you will walk away feeling profoundly satisfied and connected within. Sat, 5/26/12 9:30am – 1pm $125 or $100 if you register for all four classes in the series. If money is an issue, please contact me directly.

|Skill Building Classes and Workshops: Parenting Strategies that Work, & Why Words DON’T!
|Our kids weren’t born with a manual! Parenting, especially in the busy busy Bay Area, can be stressful! Who has the time, who has the money to add one more thing to the schedule? Well, I hear you! My 3-part class series will actually add to your time, by reducing your stress and helping you connect more in those precious moments. It will also transform your understanding of your children’s crazy-making, difficult, irrational or just plain yucky behaviors, and leave you with amazing tools to turn those trouble-spots around.
I know how amazing, rewarding, taxing and mind-boggling parenting can be. And I know that it doesn’t work when we do it alone. Make the time this month to join in a community experience that will enrich your life, empower you as a parent, and connect you with your child.

Tantrum Training: For parents of toddlers to young elementary, how do you work with childrens’ big emotions to create connection and get results? This class will offer you a whole new understanding of tantrums that will allow you to get to the roots of “yucky” behavior, and shift children from their tantrums to a more connected, flexible state.
Playful Parenting! How can you handle whining, tantrums, difficult transition times, and emotional projects with play?!? This class will help you understand the effectiveness and learning potential of play, and you will be amazed at the results you can get with hard, ingrained patterns, with those terrible whining times, with complaining and even helping your child through friendship issues, developmental anxiety and bullying with play.

How can you prepare them to go back to school confidently?
