Possible Speaking Topics:

Transforming Loss into Love and Light

Loss comes in many forms—a divorce, an empty nest, an aging parent descending into dementia, a threatening diagnosis, or the death of a loved one. Grief is our immediate and natural response to loss. But loss is also a sacred doorway. Those who move through the healing journey with compassion and understanding move away from “Why?” and toward “What Now?”

What are the gifts of grief? How can we transform pain into purpose? This talk opens the door to these possibilities.

The Unfinished Business of Grief

When a loved one dies, all the unfinished business we have with them intensify the experience of grief. The letter we didn’t write. The phone call we didn’t make. The forgiveness we weren't ready to offer. The emotional and/or physical distance that became necessary to maintain sanity.

How do we process the guilt and sadness of unfinished business? How do we make completions and release the weight of this emotional baggage? This talk offers a way to find peace and unburden yourself.

The Trauma of Your Ancestors

Unhealed trauma in the lineage manifests as symptoms, phobias, and unexplained terrors. The trauma you're carrying didn't begin with you. It's the trauma that your ancestors suffered and never healed.

With the awareness you have, you can transform your generational identity from trauma bearer to lineage healer. Generational trauma is real. The ability to heal it using neuroscience-based tools that create lasting change by rerouting your neural pathways is also real.

How do we identify the generational traumas that we're carrying? Why is it so necessary to include the ancestors you don't even know to heal this wound? This talk throws light on how we can heal from past traumas so that future generations are freed from reliving the pain.
