I offer keynote sessions and interactive sessions, including experiential movement if relevant, presenting my programs at wellness, yoga, active adult centers, and retreats as well as conferences on parenting, aging and relationships.
My offerings are based in my mission to help people open up to their most authentic and expressive selves—through mindfulness, communication, and living an open hearted life.
Be inspired by stories of people daring to create new dreams for ACT 3, on our The Open Nesters podcast!
I have always loved to connect with people in ways that help to lift up their most expansive self, and this is the essence of our show. As a broadcaster, I began collecting people’s stories in my twenties, an anthology author & editor in my forties, and as I enter my own ACT 3—my kids all adults—I pursue even richer stories.
Join me for a journey to OPEN yourself to all of your possibilities, by listening to stirring stories from OPEN NESTERS who can help ignite your wildest dreams, as well as experts who are at the cutting edge of personal authenticity.
Dancing, moving, meditating, drumming, playing and imagining the explorative life you can lead comes from feeling it from the inside. I facilitate small group experiences to play with this concept. Your small group will leave the session feeling the permission to step into their most authentic lives in ACT 3!
See testimonials below.
I’ll be your cheerleader, your confidante, your muse, and your accountability partner as we peel the layers back, and reveal your sensual, playful, exploratory truth.
Throughout our working relationship, the conversations will continue to be very direct and personal. You can count on me to be honest and straightforward, asking clarifying questions and making empowering requests. The purpose of our interaction is to hold your focus on YOUR desired outcome and to coach you to stay clear, focused and in action.
Passionately playful and mindful, Tessa helps women, men & their partners embrace their sexual desires, and awaken the playful dimension of love, touch, and creativity in and out of the bedroom. Through her podcast, speaking, writing, workshops, and one-on-one coaching, Tessa has stories to help you ignite and discover your most alive self – especially as we become older and bolder. She offers keynotes for conferences, summits and break-out sessions to rekindle, play and transform her participants from the inside-out, even when we don’t know what openings we envision for ourselves as OPEN NESTERS!
Tessa received her MA in Consciousness Studies with a specialty in sexuality, and additional training in life coaching and sex therapy.
