Sandra’s Workshop at Bliss

Confidence Building – While Laughing and Learning – Speaking and Singing

Explore fun and confidence as we learn to relax and ‘BE OURSELVES’, while speaking, listening and even thinking on our feet. We will learn to stand, claim our space, and find our voice. In this experiential workshop, we will use music, poetry and story to add our natural talents into our own talk – transforming our confidence level in ALL areas of our lives – whether at home, work or play!  Sandi Boucher, author of Honorary Indian states: “Confidence is INTOXICATING for those who SEEK it, and It is a BLESSING to those who FIND it.”

Feel free to bring a favourite poem or short reading that you’d like to share! Be ready to enjoy some music too. DON’T WORRY! With effective communication, it’s all FUN in the PRACTISING! Your take-away? Freedom to be yourself!
