Birthing Your Best Year Yet



What Matters Most & How To Live Life Fully



Sample Speaking Topics 

* Succeeding on your OWN terms – Most people desire to be “successful.”  But the truth is that success means different things to different people. And many of us have bought into a model of success that was defined by someone else, rather than asking ourselves what a truly fulfilling life would look like–on our own terms.  In this talk Devaa will offer a model for defining your own version of success, with poignant stories and participative exercises that will leave you feeling empowered.

* Birthing Your Soul’s Calling – Do you have a sense that you are here in this lifetime to make an important contribution to our planet?  You may have a sense of it, and you may be well on your way.  In this talk, Devaa offers a model for how to identify your soul’s calling, or destiny path, and how you can make steady progress each week.

* Unleashing Your Visionary Potential – When you’re connected to your highest vision, you create expansive possibilities for yourself and those around you. You discern what you’re here to do and be in this lifetime and receive the ideas and strategies to manifest it. You’re also able to imagine innovative solutions to very old and enduring problems. In this session we will begin to unleash your true visionary potential so you can dream into a greater-than-imagined reality for yourself – without feeling constrained by money or time.

Enhancing Your Leadership Presence – Being a great leader requires many skills and attributes. But at the foundation of it all is who you are BEING, while you are doing your thing in the world.  Learn tools and tips to expand your leadership presence, so people pay attention to you and want to follow your lead.

* Curving the Lines: Merging Your Masculine & Feminine For Holistic Living    Throughout history, the masculine paradigm has dominated, and as a result, our world has become very unbalanced and depleted. Today, whether male or female, we ALL have an unprecedented opportunity to harness the best of both qualities to live WHOLE lives, where we are healthy, joyful, and making a difference. Learn how to sucessfully harness both these energies in this session with Devaa.

“Devaa is a living example of the Evolutionary Woman arising in our midst. Combining brilliant intellect, business experience, spiritual development and now a major outreach into the world to assist is all in our evolution, she is a loving and inspiring woman leading us forward in the 21st century.”

~Barbara Marx Hubbard, Foundation for Conscious Evolution

“The time (or should I say timelessness) that I spent with Devaa was profound. After years of seeing all kinds of ’experts’ I can honestly say the time with Devaa broke something loose and now I feel burden-free, as well as much lighter and more joyful. I recommend her work to anyone who is ready to fly.”

~Marcia Wieder, CEO and Founder Dream University

“I’ve met a lot of teachers, healers, and leaders in my years on the speaking circuit. When I wanted to dive deeper with my work and share from a new level of vulnerability, I turned to Devaa. She helped me lead from my authenticity, connect with my depth, and open in ways that proved energizing and effective. Her support enabled me to go to a whole new level in my public presentation and bring new qualities to my leadership. She helped me in a million ways that I cannot even describe. I am blessed by her presence. Thank you Devaa!”

~Marci Shimoff, Bestselling author with over 14 million books sold, including Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul and Happy for No Reason

“Devaa could be called a spiritual midwife, assisting people in the birthing their inner-selves. She empowers you, assists you, gently encourages you, and honors you for your efforts. With Devaa’s impeccable assistance, I was able to go through what is so far the most powerful experience of my life. I am extremely grateful!” 

~Nathalie Daneau, Intuitive Coach and Counselor

“Through working with Devaa and her teaching partner, Elayne, My life is completely transformed in every way. I have a real inner confidence now in who I am and why I’m here and what I’m here to do. I moved through all the shame I’ve been holding over the years of actually not wanting to fully show up; and something much brighter and lighter and more sparkling has shown up.

And of course because of that, my whole life is changing and all my relationships including the ones closest to me, with my husband and my daughter. They’re very tender and beautiful and loving and they’ve been quite tense for the last few years. So it has gone from that to every areas of my life really.”
