I’m presenting for the 3rd time in 9 years at NAMI-PA’s statewide conference, Harrisburg, October 25-26.
Title of presentation: “Family Members as Treatment Team Coordinators.”
Why is it that families are so kept out of the loop when it comes to the health of a loved one? Caring, informed and involved family members must be the Treatment Team Coordinators for loved ones with mental illness and substance abuse! More details TBA.
I’m honored to have been invited by Ann Dugan (Founder & Asst. Dean, Institute for Entrepreneurial Excellence, Katz Graduate School of Business, Univ. of PGH) to be a featured Speaker/Program Leader in their prestigious 2014 Member Educational Series.
August 19, 2014, 8 – 10:30 a.m.
My presentation will center around Emotional Intelligence & Cross-Disciplinary, Creative Applications in Business Coaching.
More details TBA

Ever wonder, as I, how folks who believe in reincarnation reconcile the individuality of every person, the uniqueness of the spirit?
I have nothing against folks who believe. Really. But I just never could quite feel that within one’s person there might be spirits of a distinctly different one.
Now, I am sure I got that a little wrong, my understanding and defining of actual reincarnation. But no matter, as I’ll never quite be able to believe that I was once of another time and place completely unrelated to my own genetic material!
But when it comes to that genetic material, its a different story for me. You see, I have always been deeply intrigued by ancestry. (Probably like a lot of folks, especially when you see the online biz of it.) I’ve wanted to learn more of the lives of age-old relatives, and then admire (or admonish) the stories that preceded my ending up being here.
At the same time–and this is going to be really hard to explain–I felt from a very young age something very powerful which has stayed with me. Standing in my front yard as a little girl, I came upon an unusual sensation (not mere idea) that somehow each of us has a unique spark. It seemed related to my ponderings of the physical universe in the starry night sky, but which I “saw” in front of my eyes in daytime that day. I am told this is akin to a “waking dream,” whatever that is. (Probably unlike the 3-yr-old child experiences of a lot of folks.) Though at a loss for how to express it, I saw that day, or I should say felt and sensed, at that young moment of my life, what seemed very sacred. That we each have some purpose, or at least some very individual “stuff” that no one else has. (more…)

July 2013 Newsletter from Lisa A. Miles
All these years with a website– thought that should do it! Then a Blog or two on it to make things come more alive. But alas, one must pester folks on regular basis to remind that you are out there.
So I finally wrapped my head around a Monthly Newsletter. A way to make this site even more living and breathing– the highlights so to speak.

Personal Power: The Self-Designed Life
A colorful and motivational look at the keys we each hold to pursue a life that most speaks to us in this world.
This hands-on, highly engaging workshop will give participants a chance to reflect on their individual “sense of self.” It will be creative process-driven and utilize stimulating discussion, reflection, tactile and sensory facets, and some minor movement. Bring a a yoga mat and journal, and be prepared to leave empowered and inspired to leverage assets within, and to think on transforming personal and professional challenges, with both inspiration but also effective tools.
