Presentations and Speeches on Meditation, Nature, and Networking

Like I mention in my book, Simple Meditation, connections are key to a fulfilling life: connecting with nature, with other people, and connecting with that inner, spiritual part of ourselves. The topics of my talks are related to these three types of connections. As an avid photographer, I include vivid nature images in many of my presentations.

I became a public speaker to promote my book, but I soon discovered public speaking is a wonderful way to connect with an audience and deliver an important message. This realization motivated me to plunge into Toastmasters, working my way up to club president then area governor, delivering many speeches along the way. I’ve also worked with my wife Mary, a talented public speaker (see below), on meditation workshops, book talks and other speaking events. To encourage others to connect with people, deliver an important message, and improve their public speaking, I wrote an article on Eight Simple Steps to Improve Your Public Speaking and another on Toastmasters and Public Speaking.

In the process of promoting meditation and my book, I built websites, studied design, social media marketing and more methods for getting my message out. This led to Shuksan Web, my web design and internet marketing business, which now helps others to build their networks and get their message out.
