People remember how they felt and what they experienced, more than what was said.
I custom-create talks based on your group’s desired topic or current situation. Most of my “talks” are more like experiences. I rarely will talk in a monologue style unless I’ve specifically been asked to. I generally involve my audience by: asking questions; inviting people to pair up and talk; guiding experiences in small groups; and inviting people to speak out loud their thoughts and feelings to others in the group. My experience has been that this makes for a much more interesting, lively, educational and meaningful experience.
Typical situations in which I might offer a “talk”:
- “Sermons” for spiritual congregations or gatherings of any tradition (Interfaith, Unitarian, UCC, etc.)
- Professional Trainings
- Social, civil rights, and community organizations
Topics I’m intimately familiar with or have spoken about previously:
- Finding gratitude for life & vitality
- Finding peace and in a “busy world”
- Finding meaning in life and work
- Interfaith – It’s meaning and purpose
- Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender civil rights
- LGBT Spirituality
- Community Living
- Compassionate Living
