Retreat and workshop facilitator
Gathering for retreats is one of the most potent ways to bring needs and desires, shift into the answers that lie within, and bring that new level of awareness and being into every part of your life. Having experienced powerful change in this type of community it remains one of Kimberly’s favorite forms of offering personal growth in happiness.
Life is all about coming home to yourself~ your happiest, healthiest, free, peace-filled and most joyful self. My path as minister, spiritual direction, meditation coach and Reiki Master is all about facilitating that experience FOR YOU. Find within yourself all you need and live from that Presence more and more each day! Give yourself a soul massage through my private sessions virtually or in person.
Cultural Diversity Training
Cultural diversity is a common quality of most organizations in our present times. Understanding what cultural diversity is and the opportunity it gives if respect and inclusion are cultivated are key to strengthening your team. A team that learns from each other will continue to grow in productivity, creativity and harmony. Cultural diversity also brings with it potential challenges if it is not acknowledged openly.
This training is an introduction to cultural diversity. In it we will open the doors for your team to learn what it is, acknowledge ways each team member is unique, and how to both listen and communicate mindfully and how to even more effectively learn from each other and bring their own uniqueness to the benefit of the entire team.
