Teaching & Retreats

“Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn.  The sun is but a morning star.” 

– Henry David Thoreau

I love teaching groups, small or large, and have taught during Sunday morning sermons, half-day workshops, all-weekend retreats, and seminary graduate courses on family therapy and pastoral counseling.

Working on Kaua’i allows me to offer visiting individuals and couples opportunities to tailor a retreat to fit their individual needs.  Perhaps we might work together three mornings in a week, leaving the rest of the week to sail along the Napali coast, drive up the Waimea Canyon, hike in Koke’e State Park, snorkel at Poi’ipu Beach, or to drive up to the North Shore and play golf at The Prince, rated one of the top 100 courses in the United States.

Let me share some of the reactions I’ve received from past classes, seminars, and workshops.

“Susan’s lectures were excellent. She focuses on what is most important. She varied her approach so it was never boring. Her assignments always challenging. Stretched us, also uniquely—our results were shared with others or done with others so they built unity and relationships of class members.”

“I appreciate the way in which spiritual realities were integrated with psychological concepts. Susan was excellent. Most helpful was her self-disclosure and sharing living examples of the process of integration and wholeness.”

“Thank you—I never thought my husband would enjoy it as much as he did!”

“Susan, you are a gifted teacher. Your presentation styles makes the material come to life and it makes sense.”

“I really appreciated your willingness and enthusiasm to teach this class. The handouts were great. The references were terrific. I felt comfortable with you and I think you made the participants feel at ease.
