Dancing on Quicksand

Part of the LearningRevolution.com 'Survive and Thrive!' Series
With Bernajean Porter


Feeling off-center and weary with so many changes, disappointments, stresses, and increased demands bomb-barding everyday life?

Enjoy a practical and uplifting look at simple, yet effective winning, science-based strategies to increase personal resourcefulness and “change hardiness” skills while “dancing on quicksand”.  The fast-paced nature of changes today forces each of us to dig deep inside, rediscovering and reinforcing inner strengths. Chaos can also activate chemical synapses in the brain, urging us to learn, grow and expand our possibilities - all while meeting new challenges. 

Chaos brings a chasm of unexpectedness and shifting conditions! It has the ability to thrust an individual’s world into a feeling of disorder, helplessness or confusion for even the most optimistic of us . . . . or not! Re-discover your innate ability to adapt, improvise and flourish into any new situation successfully!

Topics Session ONE

  • Rapid Recovery - Letting Go - Moving Forward
  • Grounding Yourself into Resourcefulness 
  • Re-Storying a BEST Life  - Perspectives is a choice!
  • Words Matter - Using Language Patterns of Resilience with Self and Others
  • One-Minute Energy Restoration PLUS Other Sage Practices

Topics Session TWO

  • Tapping OUT Anxiety
  • Self-Talk Strategies to Reset Personal Energy 
  • Gratitude Changes Brain Chemistry - A Science-based Practice 
  • Chaos Brings a Gift of Opportunity - What is YOURS?

Whenever I have an opportunity to dive into Bernajean’s vast pool of knowledge I come out renewed, refreshed, and full of new insights on new ways to be my best. I use many of the strategies and activities she has shared daily to help with stress, anxiety, and decision making. The way Bernajean empowers you to pay close attention to the importance of language and self-talk is phenomenal! She helps you see that you can stop self-sabotaging your goals. Bernajean makes it easy to understand how simple changes to your language and self-talk can help re-wire your brain to help lower your stress, lower your anxiety, and diminish any feelings of powerlessness. If you want to become the leading person in your own story with a whole tool belt full of skills to help you along the way, I highly recommend attending her sessions!

When it comes to doing the hard or impossible things now necessary in schools to ensure students having out-of-this-world possibilities, Bernajean’s personal motto of “Da Um Jeitinho”- there is ALWAYS a way – let’s make IT happen together - sets the tone for her dedicated long term, joyful work with educators in inspiring them to unleash our youth’s potential in a changing world. email: bernajean@DigiTales.us
