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.
