A day devoted to speaking your truth!

If you've ever told a "little white lie" or "lied by omission," and later regretted
that you didn't simply speak the "whole truth and nothing but the truth,"
join Joanne Lutzfor this powerful one-day event.

How many times a day do you creatively couch something in a brighter light or use softer language to protect someone's feelings?  Or maybe you say nothing at all, to avoid dealing with the other person's emotions.  Whether you are speaking to a friend, a co-worker, or a family member, how often do you tell...

Just a little white lie?

We may convince ourselves we're lying to "spare the other person's feelings" or to "protect him/her" in some way.  If we tell the microscopic truth, we lie because we don't want to experience our own feelings of discomfort, anger, fear, sadness, or frustration.  We attempt to take away the other person's right to simply feel his/her feelings because we want to avoid what that reaction might evoke in us. 

...And then a wall starts to build.  One lie begets another, and soon we may believe that if someone really knew us, they wouldn't like us.  Telling the truth, now, would be like showing them the mold in the back of the refrigerator - on purpose!

How, then, do we stop lying and engage in clear, honest communication...every every conversation?

Learn to connect with yourself,
and practice caregiving instead of caretaking

I look forward to hearing your truth!

With love, Joanne
