Like many people, Rebecca has witnessed and experienced the “pain of the world”. She acknowledges both personal and global sociopolitical turmoil not only as an ideological crisis but also as a spiritual crisis. With over three decades of working for the greater good along with in-the-trenches real-life experience – facilitating holistic change, and offering presence, reflective listening, empathy, and basic attendance to people – Rebecca’s view is one of hope and renewal.
As an advocate for growth, education, and communication, Rebecca assists communities, organizations, and individuals to transmute despair, apathy, anger, and overwhelm into empowerment based on choice. Rebecca provides encouragement and healing support to people engaged in transforming our way of life into a more life-sustaining and connected global society.
Together with her business partner – motivational speaker, social theorist on well-being, and author Donna R. Wood – she works to show people how to equip themselves with the inner resources they need to emerge as their best selves into the family, workplace, community, nation, and global society. Donna and Rebecca do speaking engagements, and present webinars, workshops, seminars, and retreats to show people how to take effective actions to achieve meaningful personal change that transforms their experience.
