The Human Experience Workshops
All our feelings originate in our heart. Adrienne has been referred to as The Feelings Expert, The Heart Specialist, The Queen of Hearts, and The True Example of a Human Being. Having a deep and instinctive understanding of the human heart and human condition, she believes it is only the Awakened Heart that truly lives. Join her in the following intensive and extensive workshops and unlock and open your heart and awaken to discover and honor your authentic Self.
Part I - Feelings Workshop
The unexamined life is not worth living.
Henry David Thoreau
In Part I, Adrienne discusses the interrelatedness between thoughts and beliefs, feelings, and behaviors. She explains in depth, the importance of honestly acknowledging and examining these parts of ourselves and the serious consequences of not doing so. Also included in this curriculum are the following lessons:
Conscious and Mindful Living
Defense Mechanisms used to avoid feelings
Addiction and the Addictive Cycle
Specific feelings and common misconceptions and myths
Alternative perspectives and beliefs
Common destructive and counter productive reactions to feelings

Part II - Communication Workshop
People talking without speaking, people hearing without listening, people writing songs that voices never share . . .
The Sounds of Silence, Simon and Garfunkel
Once we become aware of our true thoughts and feelings, it is imperative to sensitively and skillfully express them.
In Part II, Adrienne will discuss at length, the 3 most important elements in all verbal communication. She will point out common pitfalls and destructive means of communication that build walls rather than bridges in relationships of all kinds. Following an extensive list of dos and don'ts, you will learn alternative communication skills and techniques in both listening and expressing. Also included in this curriculum are the following lessons:
Timing and Scheduling
Agreeing to Disagree
Learn to speak your heart and mind and listen to others'.
Please note each Human Experience workshop runs approximately 4 hours, completed in two 2 hour sessions. Both are interactive, with questions and comments encouraged throughout.
You who are on the road
Must have a code,
That you can live by,
And so become yourself . . .
Teach your children well . . .
Teach Your Children, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
Perhaps our most difficult and challenging job is caring for and raising our children. But Adrienne's experience and belief is that it can also be our most fulfilling, joyful and rewarding role. If you have a child or children in your home or care, you will gain great insight working with her. She will help you understand the democratic approach to parenting, while teaching you specific techniques for eliciting cooperation, building trust, creating responsibility, setting boundaries, disciplining and following through. You will get to know yourself and your children and enjoy them on a deeper and more satisfying level, applying skills you'll develop through a greater and realistic understanding of children's behavior and a parent's task.
This course can be just as beneficial for grandparents, babysitters and nannys who wish to enrich their time and experience with the children in their lives.
Please note Parenting Skills workshops are completed in a series of 6 - 8 two hour interactive sessions at the request and convenience of the group. Small groups will be considered.
The Afterlife with Adrienne
The spirits can do anything.
Ebenezer Scrooge, A Christmas Carol
Have you ever wondered about the well-being and presence of loved ones that have passed on? With the knowledge that our deceased friends and relatives are in fact still with us and alive in the spiritual realm, Adrienne communicates with spirits receiving personal messages for those still here in the physical form. Messages can be literal, symbolic or metaphoric, rooted in the past, present or future, and ultimately bring great comfort to those missing and grieving their loved ones. Lives can be altered with the understanding and confirmation that the souls of our departed live on in another dimension and remain with us in spirit.
Share in this enlightening experience and feel the faith, hope and comfort that comes with belief in eternal life.
This amazing and educational 2 1/2 hour event includes an Introduction, where Adrienne shares her beginnings on her journey to the spirit world and mediumship. She will help you understand how you may personally communicate with the other side. An in-depth and thorough explanation of how and why spirits communicate will follow and include a Question and Answer Session.
Following a short break, Adrienne will return to communicate with certain audience members, guided completely by the spirits.
Days of Grief and Gratitude
The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, room for relief, room for misery, room for joy.
In this informal workshop and discussion group, Adrienne shares her recent arduous journey through brain surgery. She will take you from diagnosis through healing with an emphasis on her emotional process and the five stages of The Grieving Process, helping you understand the importance of her consciously experiencing each and every feeling along the way. Through her heartfelt example, you will learn a new approach to coping with and healing from the inevitable loss, devastation and challenges we all incur in our lives and let go of common societal reactions and pressures. Discussion will include obvious and not so obvious losses, the nature of grief and the most important elements in healing. Comments and questions are welcome throughout this inspiring 2 hour event.
Don't Blame God
Everybody wants a miracle, Bruce. Want me to do everything for 'em. But what they don't understand is, they are holding the power.
God, Bruce Almighty
Do you believe everything that happens is the will of God? Do you believe that everything happens for a reason? Think again . . .
In this informal workshop and discussion group, Adrienne will help dispel myths and commonly held beliefs regarding God's Will. She will help differentiate between the will of God and free will, a very precious human gift from our Creator. You will come to understand the many variables that play a part in the circumstances of our lives and learn to view a newer, more loving and credible image of the Divine. This alternative God will be simply defined, challenging the omnipotent variation that so often acts as an obstacle to realizing your own power and responsibility in what occurs in your life. Discussion will include man-made suffering, divine intervention and karma. Comments and questions are encouraged throughout this thought-provoking 2 hour event.
