When one journey ends, another begins. But sometimes, maybe, you have to wait to see the next path.
A little over 20 years ago, I started the journey of learning to transform stage fright and fear of public speaking so that I and others could connect with the power of presence when speaking or performing to groups and audiences. I was fascinated by a spiritual experience I had while acting onstage that transformed my relationship with myself and my audience one night in 1985. That fascination led me through twenty plus years of exploration, research and work facilitating people to develop presence and comfort speaking in front of others.
That journey is really over now! All of my discoveries have been collected and written into a book that shares all the secrets I have been using to help myself and thousands of other people in the past two decades. The book called It’s your Time to Shine: How to Overcome Fear of Public Speaking, Develop Authentic Presence and Speak from Your Heart is now available at my website and through Amazon.com.
So, what is the next journey? I don’t know! I almost feel empty and aimless. This was such a big part of my life, both the development of the Zimmer Method for authentic communication and the writing of the book. What is left now is a sense of waiting to be inspired to create something new. Meanwhile, I continue to teach the method in classes, coaching sessions and in corporate teams.
Here is what Dr. Joe Vitale, star of The Secret, said about this book. “The best book I’ve seen on the power of authentic presence for speaking. Sandra brings years of work with spiritual psychology to shed new light on public speaking as a means of personal transformation.”
If you struggle with tension and anxiety about speaking up, speaking out or speaking to groups, please look at my book. It may be the key that unlocks your stress and sets you free to be who you are when you share your ideas, insights, expertise, talents or gifts.
