Confessions of an Introvert
Limited Capacity filling up

World-class public speakers generally have a few traits in common. They’re relaxed on stage. They’re spontaneous and often interact with the audience during their speech. They’re expressive and bright; the audience often feels uplifted, inspired or moved after the speech. They know how to “flow” on stage. While some of this comes with practice, meditation and visualization can help you cultivate all of these qualities.There are many mindfulness techniques that can be used to prepare for speeches, interviews and presentations. Most people have trouble with public speaking because they approach the subject from a place of fear. Their mind creates mental images of disaster scenarios, and those mental images further intensify their fear. Let’s flip the switch and create positive images of success as part of your preparation. The session will focus on breathing exercises, mindfulness in action, visualization techniques and tips for successful speaking.

Confessions of an Introvert (Freshman & Sophomores Only)
Limited Capacity filling up

World-class public speakers generally have a few traits in common. They’re relaxed on stage. They’re spontaneous and often interact with the audience during their speech. They’re expressive and bright; the audience often feels uplifted, inspired or moved after the speech. They know how to “flow” on stage. While some of this comes with practice, meditation and visualization can help you cultivate all of these qualities.There are many mindfulness techniques that can be used to prepare for speeches, interviews and presentations. Most people have trouble with public speaking because they approach the subject from a place of fear. Their mind creates mental images of disaster scenarios, and those mental images further intensify their fear. Let’s flip the switch and create positive images of success as part of your preparation. The session will focus on breathing exercises, mindfulness in action, visualization techniques and tips for successful speaking.

Confessions of an Introvert
Limited Capacity filling up

World-class public speakers generally have a few traits in common. They’re relaxed on stage. They’re spontaneous and often interact with the audience during their speech. They’re expressive and bright; the audience often feels uplifted, inspired or moved after the speech. They know how to “flow” on stage. While some of this comes with practice, meditation and visualization can help you cultivate all of these qualities.There are many mindfulness techniques that can be used to prepare for speeches, interviews and presentations. Most people have trouble with public speaking because they approach the subject from a place of fear. Their mind creates mental images of disaster scenarios, and those mental images further intensify their fear. Let’s flip the switch and create positive images of success as part of your preparation. The session will focus on breathing exercises, mindfulness in action, visualization techniques and tips for successful speaking.
