Soul Speaks™ is a deceptively simple process that stills your mind and opens your heart, allowing your true essence to shine through. This unique approach consists of a powerful centering process that has proven to have an extremely powerful impact on all areas of life, both personal and professional. It is based on a humanistic approach to overcoming the fear of public speaking, called, Speaking Circles®, which was created by Lee Glickstein in 1989. But the benefits go beyond that. Soul Speaks™ provides a tangible tool for speaking powerfully and authentically in any area of your life, and enhances the ability to speak and live your truth every day.

Here’s what participants are saying about Soul Speaks:

Soul Speaks has given me the ability to assert myself at work and to speak with confidence, clarity and ease.   

I used to think I was grounded. I did yoga. I meditated. Practicing Soul Speaks is the practice of grounding. The practice of being present to myself…for myself…before anything else. This practice translates to daily life better than any yoga session I’ve done over the past 25 years.   

Soul Speaks is teaching me the ability to settle down into a deeper, more genuine part of myself. Through this process I am building the ability to recognize and access a well of strength, truth and power that I was previously only barely aware existed in me. This experience continues to be enlightening, freeing and empowering.

Soul Speaks is a good match for the experiential learner, and anyone who wants to deepen their intuition, creativity, and connection. It is healing and a blessing for the soul!

I now have confidence in my ability to pause and wait during speaking rather than just pushing through and filling the silence.

Soul Speaks is like dessert for the soul. This gathering connects me to my essence when I’m too caught up in the details of life to do that for myself.

I knew this experience would be deep and meaningful when I registered. Little did I know how brilliant, powerful, and transforming, talking from my extemporaneous soul would be.  Paula and Lizanne are stellar leaders in the deepest sense of what one needs for support, structure, and holding a sacred space to go deep;  keeping it real, bright, heavy, dark, delicious! Here there is space for all of the hues of my humanness. I am forever changed and oh so ennobled.

Soul Speaks is a unique and transforming experience. There is a wellspring of potential available to each participant in terms of gaining insight and awareness.  Personally, I became more and more comfortable being seen for who I am in this safe and positive environment.  Truly a place to expand the consciousness!

Soul Speaks has enabled me to speak in front of people; to organize my thoughts more easily when under stress without being nervous.

It increased my ability to speak in front of people, but it has helped me to develop my listening skills, to stay focused, and to become a better communicator; which helps me in my career to become a better manager/leader.

Soul Speaks is like improv; you get up in front of the room and it’s all up to you. It’s telling a story, but instead of telling a story, YOU are the story.   It’s not just what’s on your mind, it’s deeper than that.  It allows you to express who you are. To speak openly and honestly without feeling intimidated.  Once you have that comfort in expressing your thoughts, ideas, feelings, you can then exude confidence and strength.  Your words become more powerful, allowing you to realize your potential, and that ANYTHING is possible. 

I listen better, and I am less afraid to say things honestly and openly.

Soul Speaks has boosted my confidence and helped me be and act from a more intuitive place.
