Education Experience & Development

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? … your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine … and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

I have had the opportunity to teach a variety of courses over the years. Below I list those where I have served as a primary instructor, and where possible, I include a link to description or handbook. Please note: these handbooks are exemplars only. Current students should refer to the appropriate Canvas page for the most recent handbook.
