Castle to Truth

Open the Castle to Truth
Liberate your powerful inner voice

We all wish to have our true self seen and heard. How exactly do we do this?

Join Catherine Bell as she hosts Amazon best seller of Truthaches and psychotherapist Tamika Schilbe Cole in a dynamic conversation about speaking our truth in daily life. Healthy leadership, parenthood, friendships, and partnerships all long for truth, and many of us are longing for the depth within ourselves to be revealed. Sometimes we don’t even realize the struggles that can occur when we shy away from expressing ourselves. Yet speaking our truth is not always simple or easy to do. How do we honour our truth?

Truthaches: Everything You Need to Know about Speaking—and Living—Your Truth
Speaking our truth is very different from speaking our mind–because our personal truth comes from the heart. We all get truthaches from time to time—the aches and pains that arise from hiding our truth in some aspect of life. This workshop explores how our authentic voice can get silenced and how we can heal it. Participants will learn practical tools, meditations, mudras, and toning to help clear blockages and free their authentic voice. Speaking our truth is as important to our health as exercise and nutrition.

The Art of Personal Renewal
According to George Carlin, “we’ve conquered outer space but not inner space.” Discover inner space in this playful, informative, and life-affirming workshop. We’ll explore everyday meditations, breath techniques, simple chair stretches, and tools for inspiration and energy throughout the workday. Participants will learn to breathe new life into daily routines to stay focused, positive, and recharged.

Meditation in the Modern Age–Finding a Practice that Works for You
Experience a sampling of meditation techniques and discover one that’s perfect for your personality and interests. This workshop busts the biggest meditation myth of all–that we have to shut off our mind to meditate. With about 2600 thoughts running through our minds every half hour, for the average person “shutting off thought” is an impossible goal. Everyone can meditate. We just need to stop taking ourselves so seriously–and practice.

Words cannot express my gratitude for the outstanding teacher training you led to our group of teachers. From the start I knew by how organized and efficient it was to communicate and organize with your team that it would be a great weekend, but the actual training itself blew away my expectations. Not only did our group learn so many interesting and valuable tools, but we had so much fun doing so! You made it safe and accessible for the heavy veil of adulthood to be lifted so that everyone could begin to connect and to see the world again through fresh eyes. Everyone completed the training inspired to share the teachings – exactly what our world needs right now! So many blessings from us all and deep bows,

Without hesitation I recommend Tamika and her services as a facilitator. Tamika led our school staff through an afternoon of activities that engaged, inspired and re-energized. Through opportunities for personal reflection, laughter and tears, Tamika created an environment that challenged us to grow while at the same time allowing each individual to participate in a manner that was safe and comfortable. The activities designed and deployed allowed our staff to return to work with a renewed commitment to our community and to our mission.

Tamika draws in her participants to become immediately absorbed by the training material and involves herself experientially throughout the course. She is an independent presenter and moves her students from knowledge to experience, such that they complete her training beyond expectation. She has excellent presentation skills, works well with others, is conscientious of the levels at which participants are at and is able to make appropriate modifications. She is charismatic and creative in her approach to teaching, demonstrating and presenting. I recommend Tamika Schilbe without reservation.
