“Michael's time with our group of YMCA professionals was inspiring to us all. As we work to help improve the lives of those in our community, his message of the power of being kind will now be spread throughout Northern New England. I can't tell you how many people came up to me throughout the rest of our conference to talk to me about changes they plan on making in their lives as a result of Michael's message. It was such a great way to kick off our conference!”

Hate crimes. Divisiveness. Political turmoil. Online cruelty and the weaponization of social media. For most, these and other uncivil realities are digitally digested before finishing our first cup of coffee. We have arrived at a time where being tethered to turbulence is the norm. As a result, many become dominated by drama; immersed in the age of rage; oftentimes participating in online (and offline) behavior which only summons additional stress and hostility.

But is our anger really the result of the latest insulting tweet or unjust events? Is the coworker from hell actually to blame for our misery? Can a rude driver completely ruin our day? Or when any form of anarchy arises in the world, are we reacting or responding? Although the majority find it easier to point fingers, in reality, the primary adversary in our life is seldom another person or external circumstances. Simply stated, on most days, we are at war with the very person who was meant to be our greatest ally: ourselves.

Throughout this presentation, attendees will learn to identify the anger and stress-inducing triggers which can negatively influence relationships, work performance, mental health, and overall wellbeing. By understanding the origins of one's own personal war and the remedies for creating inner harmony, he or she will discover how to turn conflict into composure, chaos into kindness, and ultimately, win the relentless battle between the head and the heart.

In these sessions you will learn to:

INCREASE positive communication, honesty, patience, empathy, compassion, forgiveness, kindness, unity, loyalty, peace, responsibility, and optimism.

REDUCE anger, judgment, blame, impatience, drama, anxiety, stress, depression, dishonesty, and negative attitudes.

There are a limited number of these presentations available. To reserve a date for your workplace, conference, or event, please send your email to

     In this one of a kind program, learn how a fulfilling life begins the moment you confront one of your greatest fears: the truth. During this interactive "Truthshop," attendees are inspired to live and speak their truth while encouraging others to do the same. Through honest conversations and empathy building exercises, discover how vulnerability and authenticity can enhance all areas of your life. By recognizing that everyone has a story, judgmental habits will be replaced by qualities such as acceptance, trust, empathy, and even forgiveness. If you've ever felt misunderstood or would like to see others in a more compassionate light, this is the program for you.

— Create healthy, loving relationships.

— Free yourself from a painful past.

— Learn the power of forgiveness

— Understand difficult people.

— Live a life of integrity, kindness, and courage.

To survive and thrive in today's world, the ability to accept adversity with an open heart and mind is imperative. For the reality is, it's not a matter of if challenges arise, but rather, when. And by taking a proactive approach, building emotional muscles each day, we greatly increase our odds of bouncing back from any hardship with dignity and strength.

This program is an opportunity to develop fierce resiliency and the courage required for turning wounds into wisdom and meaning. Built on the Heart Warrior principles, these soulful, and honest conversations are a journey into the world of self-awareness and designing a conscious life. If you would like to break through fears, find purpose within your challenges, and connect to your life's true calling, please email Michael.

NEW: Truthshops can now be hosted in your home with family and friends. (max 20 people)

Most would agree—for humanity to survive; an attitude of kindness is needed now more than ever. Sadly, not everyone is adhering to this belief as we are experiencing challenging times. The paradox, however, is that rarely does a person reject the importance of human-kindness. It’s something each of us desires within relationships, the workplace, and our day-to-day interactions. So if compassionate energy is something we all want; why the chaos, drama...and unnecessary suffering?

During this keynote, Michael reveals the causes of negative behavior along with proven methods to heal relationships, gain strength through helping others, and experience the extraordinary joy that comes from choosing kindness as a way of life.
