    Serenity Breathing

    I invite you to take a break from the news and join me for Serenity Breathing.  We will breathe together every Thursday at noon through September 24th for about 20 minutes.

    Here is the link to join:

    Serenity breathing is based on a technique taught to me by Cynthia Ackrill.  I find it is a very useful technique when I get stressed.  My hope is that you will leave Serenity Breathing feeling a little calmer and less stressed.

    Dear Colleagues,

    Please join me and help spread the word about a very special event at Fly Leaf Books in Chapel Hill on Feb 19, 2020. 

    Diana Whitney (of Appreciative Inquiry fame) and I, along with Barbara Fredrickson will discuss #metoo through an appreciative lens.

    In Diana's words:  "I reflected long and hard about how my work, Appreciative Inquiry, might be helpful to women and men facing the realities, pain and alienation of #metoo. Through conversations with women and men around the globe, I decided to meet the challenge and write a book that could serve as a resource for people wanting to have much needed, and hard to have, conversations about abuse and inequality of girls and women."

    Thriving Women, Thriving World: An Invitation to Dialogue, Healing and Inspired Action was written as a labor of love by nine women from Mexico, Korea, Canada, South Africa and the US. It is full of stories, appreciative questions and ideas for applications that can be adapted to a wide range of situations from book clubs to women’s groups, gender workshops and organization culture change initiatives. 

    Fly Leaf Books in Chapel Hill is generously hosting us on Feb 19, at 7:00. Join us to explore ways to discuss dark issues by shining a light on how others have healed and transcended, on what we want more of and how we can together create a thriving world for girls and women. 

    A key message of our book is “As women and girls thrive, so too do their communities and the world."

    We look forward to seeing you on Feb 19th.

    Kathryn Britton, Diana Whitney

    Eventbrite Link for registration.

    The first day of Fall is September 22, where we will begin to experience the beautiful colors of leaves and cooler temperatures, just to name a few natural changes. How will you receive these natural changes?

    This nature bathing retreat at Umstead Park is a great way to reconnect with nature and learn how Mother Earth copes with all seasonal changes. Join Co-Active Coaches Amal Essader and Trevor Timbeck to learn how to prepare for a new season in your life and what that means for your legacy. In this event, you will learn how to:

    • Leave the busyness of your life and focus on what matters to you most

    • Slow your breathing to connect your mind with your body

    • Slow your walking to notice the smaller things in nature

    • Reflect on your new learning and connect with Mother Earth   

    You will walk away with a renewed perspective on your endless capacity for change and growth by writing your own legacy.

    We’d love for you to come with a companion, if you choose to do so; however, your electronic devices are not considered a companion!

    Dress for comfort. We will have the event independent of the weather; we have a shelter just in case.

    Please meet us at Shelter #1 (Crabtree Entrance).

    Last Fall when Lisa  Gabriel and I chose Resilience in Times of Volatility for the topic for our 5th annual Having It All event we were focused on the volatility of the companies in our area with all of the acquisitions, mergers and buy outs. ​

    ​Then the news broke about the multitudinous sexual misconduct​ situations involving those out of politics and those in politics.

    And then...The massacre at the high school in Florida.

    And now...the bombs in Austin, Texas

    ​Join the conversation April 10, 2018.



    This is a personal invitation for coaches to purchase a table of 10 for the discounted price of $400 or purchase individual tickets at $45. We sell out every year.

    If you are interested, I handle group sales. Eventbrite is only for individual sales.

    If you have questions my cell is 850.384.4874. Betsy Smith

    What are the benefits to coaches? 

    1. The event is structured so that people really get to know each other - not merely exchange business cards. LiIelong friendships have been made.

    2. The panelists are experts in Resilience. You might learn new strategies.

    3. Companies that have been in attendance, BD, Bayer Crop Sciences, BCBSNC, QVidia, World Wide Clinical Trials (presenting sponsor this year).

    Hope to see you there!
