 Bridget believes…

we are born with a unique genius, a divine spark that we are called to share with the world

We are called to shine!

Bridget believes every person on this planet is a gift, that all life and all diversity have value, including people with different perspectives, talents, and abilities.

As a dyslexic writer, Bridget knows first hand that everyone learns differently. There are visual, auditory and kinesthetic learners. As a seasoned teacher of writing, Bridget Birdsall believes educators are being called to embrace an evolutionary mindset that helps students of all ages and abilities focus less on “learning” and more on “becoming” who they truly are.

Each and every one of us is unique in all the world.

As an author, Bridget Birdsall believes that one of the most effective ways to cultivate connection, empathy, and understanding, perhaps even manifest peace on our planet, is through sharing our stories.

YOU matter. YOUR stories matter!

As an accidental activist, Bridget sees the greatest detriment to our educational systems as our basic, ingrained, DNA-programmed primordial fear of difference. We are hardwired, like our brothers and sisters in the animal nations, to survive, yet we now live in a world where we can no longer deny our interconnectedness, our interdependence and our intrinsic need for one another. This is the fulcrum on which an epidemic of violence, war and bullying has been born and why we must literally change the way we think. It’s time to re-member who we really are.

Thoughts and words have tremendous transformational power!

As a life-long spiritual seeker, Bridget first found a glimpse of a God she could understand in a book. Bridget believes books saved her life. That words are containers of human consciousness and when we learn to harness their innate power, words can transform our lives.

Everyone has a story and everyone’s story matters!

As a speaker and writing teacher, Bridget seeks to create a safe space where everyone in the room, even a virtual room, can recognize, exercise, and honor their own creative genius. Where everyone can find their VOICE and take command of their stories, no matter what genre they work in—prose, poetry, plays, essays, memoir, hip hop, whatever!

Bridget believes no matter who you are or why you’ve come to this website, there is a reason you are here, literally and figuratively.

Welcome.

    Hello Bridget, I met you in Rick’s real estate class yesterday and came to your website to see when the Unitarian Church talk will be. I was interested to learn you
    are dyslexic. I first became involved with dyslexia when my granddaughter had sensory integrated perception and what she heard and how she talked was not normal.. I taught her every sound breaking a word into sets of sounds. I later learned she had dyslexia and became involved with the Orton Gillingham method of teaching people with dyslexia. I must have taught her well including our visits to group homes of people with disabilities – cause after her first stint as a car hop at the local A&W she has been a life long worker for people with disabilities. She is currently the liaison for children with disabilities. She has a 9 year old with Charge syndrome (multiple disabilities). Her total family includes a husband and four children. Along with her volunteer duties at the school, she does respite for children with extreme disabilities. Now to the point she has maintained honorable grades in her online classes making the Dean’s list for the first three years and in her current year she is on the President’s list. More to the point Dyslexia isn’t a disability but a motivator. I am bless to see the progress of both my granddaughter and my great granddaughter and the unconditional love both – But I do have 18 grandchildren and love them all.

    I hope to join you at the Unitarian Church and /or a workshop

      I’ve sent you an email Lois and thank you for sharing the story of your daughter and granddaughter who have no doubt found great gifts in their “different” abilities!
