“Lisa Foster was a speaker for Sonoma State University’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April 2017, delivering a workshop and a presentation about the Hero’s Journey for Overcomers of Sexual Violation. Ms. Foster is an engaging, powerful, and deeply impactful speaker. She has a unique gift: the ability to guide the audience through challenging terrain with sensitivity, humor, and passion to a new perspective. Not only was I, and the audience, deeply moved by her presentation, but we left with a clarity of vision and concrete tools for approaching this sensitive topic in a new light – moving, as she says, ‘from shame and silence to heroism and fierce hope.’ I encourage you to invite Ms. Foster to share her gift with you.”
– Dr. William Silver, Dean of the School of Business and Economics, Sonoma State University

Cracking the Code: How to Capitalize On Your Original Design

The first place to look for core solutions in your personal and professional life is inside!

In this presentation, based on parillume’s Shine From Your Original Design℠ program, learn how insights from StrengthsFinder, Myers Briggs and Enneagram assessments reveal three integrated invitations: to meaningful contribution, to great relationships, and to healthy expression.  We’ll explore and design strategies to leverage the treasure of your true self and create a life you love!

Overcoming Sexual Violation

The Invisible Hero

The story of sexual violation, like all stories, has a beginning, a middle, and an end. But we tend to stop in the middle of this story – in the second stage of the Hero’s Journey, stuck in recovery – and call it the ending.  In The Invisible Hero, based on her talk at TEDxCrestmoorParkWomen 2016, Lisa shares her story from beginning to heroic ending, and explores parillume’s lit path for survivors to create happy endings of their own. Learn how victims of sexual violation can complete their Hero’s Journey to reclaim the treasure of their true selves, to shine in their lives, and ultimately to transform the world’s story: from shame and silence to heroism and fierce hope. ur
