Transformational Exchanges: For Adolescence & Beyond
“Remembering what was. Choosing how you will be.”
Remember or imagine you at 4, 14, 24, 34, 44, 54, 64, and on and on and on. What wisdom did you know that you ignored? What wisdom do you wish would be revealed to you right now?
Envision yourself standing on the middle of a bridge. On one side is your past. On the other side is your future. When you view your history as opportunities for learning and view your untold story as abundant with choices, your present moments become calmer. Clearer. Focused. More easeful.
Whether you are 4 or 94, you deserve a tranquil life full of positive challenges, purpose, and possibility. Wherever and whenever you are right now, step into vulnerability and explore what is on the other side of your bridge.

The EYE HUG Squad Movement
“Forging Connections. Raising Self Worth.”
At their core, humans seek connection. People of all ages deserve strategies to be seen, heard, and valued. EYE HUG has nothing to do with a physical hug but can have similar positive effects. EYE HUG is all about forging connections with oneself and with others in a safe and healthy manner. These connections can raise self worth and can impact others.
- To establish and respect boundaries
- To recognize and apply three levels of listening
- To understand what consent (agreement) means, how to request it, how to obtain it, and how to recognize the absence of it
- To foster connection between and among peers and adults
- Ages 4 and older
All of these experiences can be modified to meet the needs of individuals, groups, and organizations. If you see something within an offered experience and think to yourself, “I want this but I don’t need this,” yes…we can make it happen!
