Pamela Robinson

Facilitator

Pamela is a natural born coach/facilitator, teacher and life-long learner. The foundation of her practice is in knowing that people inherently have the ability, and the knowledge to teach themselves how to live more joyful, loving lives. Based on her beliefs that "people are their own greatest teachers", she is able to facilitate dialogues that often result in a greater understanding and awareness of oneself, and how one can move forward with that expanded, deeper awareness.
