Organizations, Communities & Leaders

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

~ Margaret Mead

Organizations and communities are their own unique “organisms”, comprised of many people who must engage together in healthy ways for the organization itself to be healthy.

To achieve this, I take an integrative holistic and restorative approach that acknowledges interconnectedness and honors all of our relationships.

With 25 years of experience supporting forward-focused organizations, communities and leaders in creating culture, facilitating transformation and promoting sustainability, I offer a range of tailored engagement types of varying lengths depending on your needs, including:

  • Program Development
  • Program Delivery (on-site, virtual and hybrid)
  • Retreats (off-site, virtual and hybrid)
  • General Consulting

Within these categories, the work we do together can focus on any of the following and much more:

  • Soul-Centered Leadership
  • Restorative Approaches at Work
  • Shaping a Shared Vision for the Future
  • Team & Community Building
  • Wellness (e.g., meditation and mindfulness for stress reduction and increased focus)

Restorative Practices

By fostering connection, mutual understanding, healthy communication and respectful dialogue, restorative practices provide a foundation for developing healthy, productive and sustainable working relationships and environments.

  • Proactively establishing workplace and community dynamics
  • Addressing conflict and facilitating challenging conversations
  • Exploring diverse perspectives
  • Increasing creative problem solving
  • Promoting equitable decision making
  • Building, maintaining and repairing relationships
  • Creating a sense of belonging

Holistic Recovery Pathways

Each person is unique and deserves to discover their own path of recovery. This is why I’m an advocate for a multiple pathways approach.

I not only support individuals and families in exploring Holistic Recovery Pathways, but also offer recovery-related organizations, communities and conferences high-engagement, interactive programs that enable participants to truly absorb and put into practice what they’ve learned.

Topics include:

  • Meditation & Mindfulness for Recovery & Wellness

  • The Science of Addiction & Recovery
  • Self-Care for Wellness & Sustainability in Recovery

Beth Shekinah Terrence has incredible gifts as a facilitator and teacher. In addition to developing and co-leading a number of programs over the years, she recently created a 9-month Co-Visioning Circle for 12 key women from around the world who had served different roles in our organization. Beth Shekinah brought restorative and experiential practices to each Zoom call with deep presence and compassion for a wide range of experiences, emotions, and feelings to be expressed. She holds space with an open heart, shares life wisdom, and adapts the structure to meet the needs of the group, and each participant, in the moment. She is a gift to any organization or team that is looking for transformation.
