From the time we are born it is believed that we arrive from the spirit world with natural gifts that are meant to be used as part of a greater purpose in contributing to our individual and collective roles and responsibilities within the community. We have lost our way by believing work and education alone are the factors that shape us. We need to look deep into ourselves, to find and get to know what those gifts are – in order to effectively use them as part of our life’s purpose and journey in this physical experience as were originally intended to. Lindsay will share her story on her own natural gifts and how she learned to use them toward community building and advocacy. This talk is sure to inspire and awake the natural gifts within all of us.
