Val on Zoom

These days, my events are on Zoom, so you can be anywhere.

All my events and speaking are especially designed for introvert sensibilities but the principles are applicable for anyone. No matter what, I speak from the heart about what’s real.

Please subscribe to get the announcements when new events are announced.

Below you’ll find upcoming events, self-study courses, group programs, and more.


Upcoming

business marketing stress“I Love My Client Work, But I Hate Marketing. Then What?” (Course)

A Fresh Perspective on Attracting Clients, that Even Introverts Will Love.
Date TBD (planned for Winter 2020-21)

If the thought of marketing makes you feel anxious or drained, I’ll help you step into a new perspective —where effective marketing can fit inside your comfort zone.

I am an introvert who discovered more ease with marketing and now have a steady coaching business (helping other introverts). I will teach you some simple principles to make marketing work for you too.

Especially for caring introverts who are coaches or healing arts professionals.


Online Courses (Self-study, On-demand)

career directionSimple Steps to Uncover the “Best Use of You” Now. (4-week Course)

Will re-open soon as a self-study course.

It’s time to rethink your direction. And to stop waiting for clarity to just appear.

Whether it’s your career direction, your business direction, or how to be of use in retirement, come learn a framework to help you know the “best use of you” now.

You can call this your purpose, your career path, where you fit, or simply put, “the best use of you.”

Uncovering that can be easier than you think, and so fulfilling when you find your fit. It’s also important for the world so that your best gifts can flow for the good of all.

No cost if any of this fits:

  1. You are currently challenged to pay your basic living expenses.
  2. You are Black and/or Indigenous.
    This is not charity. It’s in solidarity, and it’s a step toward reparations.

Grounding Body and Mind for Sensitive Souls — Available Anytime with EFT

GroundingMy clients have big hearts and they can be at risk for overwhelm from others’ energy, the news, or our inner critic.

As a highly sensitive introvert myself, I’ve had to find good grounding methods so I can keep living my purpose without exhaustion. EFT has become one of my go-to methods for stress moments, inner critic moments, getting back to focus, and even getting to sleep.

I co-created this program with an EFT specialist to share what works for grounding and EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), sometimes called Tapping.

By watching the recording, you’ll come away with:

  1. A little more calm in your body.
  2. Inspiration for incorporating more grounding so you can thrive while keeping your heart open.
  3. Learn and practice EFT for grounding anytime.
  4. Take-home instructions to use EFT on your own.

Available now, on-demand, for self-study.
