EMME’S LECTURE TOPICS
+ Body+Mind+Spirit Connection!
Emme's got a newsflash: "Stop living from the neck up!" With a bi- polar pandemic on our hands with eating disorders and obesity reportedly on the rise, we need to connect with ourselves like never before. Emme believes all success and human potential flows from a mindful and positive connection between our bodies, minds and souls. Without these three aligning, we experience chronic discomfort or dis-conection in all it's various forms (mentally, physically and spiritually). Once we become aware of this, discomfort, disease and and over all feeling of disconnect eventually lessens, bringing us closer to a more fulfilled life. Emme shares tips, personal stories, and relatable concepts to create a shift to shape our lives for the better.
+ No Room For Fear!
Having triumphed over her own share of tragedies and roadblocks, Emme has a unique knack for turning even the worst situations into an opportunity for growth. Through personal accectodes, Emme will encourage her audience to learn to say yes when opportunities suddenly pop up, even if they don't feel qualified, say no to self destructive talk and behavior blocking a passionate and mission filled life, and how to embrace tough times (Emme will share her cancer diagnosis and treatement and what it taught her) to reevaluate those we hang with, those we choose to do business with and how important carving time out everyday for peace and quite. Isn't it time to live the life you are meant to live instead of the life you feel you should be living? Get ready to be inspired, gain the courage to leap into new challenges and learn through laughter how similar we all are while living such vastly different lives.
+ Bring it On…A thrivers’s Story!
Emme delivers an intimate, proactive view of how one can take part in their own healing process. She reveals her battle and journey through the medical maze along with her own efforts to marry conventional medicine with holistic care. Emme believes “growth only comes when pushed, prodded and forced to face what lies in front of you- being the salt and pepper of life; the good with the seemingly bad, in all its glory.” To say this was a gift may sound strange, but she feels in so many ways it has been. Emme used to improve her wellness and enhance her immune function and those that she continues to use, in post treatment. She is interested in what all of us can learn together and, in particular, what might work for people in different situations. She talks of additional therapies that helped her stay vivacious and energetic during the roughest times and how medical and holistic healing approaches offset the negative affects of chemotherapy, without affecting the protocol itself. Emme reveals her own cancer and it’s treatments - including the emotional, physical and psychological obstacles that must be overcome in order to help others and realize their dreams!
