Courage and Compassion – Women that Inspire Series


When we live bravely, we expand our world. Suddenly there are so many more possibilities. Nothing is more rewarding than showing up fully, being courageous and reaping the rewards of engaging in the world from a place of authenticity.


With the Courage and Compassion Speaker Series I want to showcase courageous women and have them share their compelling stories. Stories that inspire. Stories that will encourage us to look for the possibilities, in our own lives. What all these speakers will have in common is their courage, and their compassion. I look forward to learning and getting inspired with you all!
