David G. Speer, Ph.D., will present "Discovering Your Aces in the Game of Life," an interactive workshop, on Thursday, April 10, from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Frostburg State University Cordts Physical Education Center Leake Room.
The session is designed to help participants uncover their "aces," skills and talents that individuals perform easily and at which they excel, yet they often either ignore or take for granted. Discovering aces builds confidence and courage, which, in turn, enhances productivity and leadership abilities in young people and adults.
Then on Saturday, April 12, Speer will teach a six-hour class from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (with a one-hour lunch break) in "Mind Yoga" in the Leake Room. Hatha Yoga, which was developed to support meditation, helps aspirants take control of their minds. Mind Yoga gets right to the point, bypassing the need to practice either meditation or Hatha Yoga in order for participants to control their minds-and thus their lives.
A distinguished and sought-after counselor and speaker in the motivational field, Speer, a naturopath, has special expertise in helping individuals with learning disabilities. He has studied with healing masters in the Philippines and the United States, including Hawaii and Alaska. He has studied the mind and its workings for over 20 years and has trained himself in the alternative and the unusual.
During previous presentations to FSU students, Speer quickly established a high level of rapport with the students involved and helped them uncover their aces just before finals started. Uncovering their aces put the students in a confident frame of mind to do their best on final exams.
Both the Thursday and Saturday sessions-which overlap yet stand alone-are designed to help attendees discover their latent talents and abilities, give 100 percent to life, and fill their places in the FSU community and the community at large as movers, shakers, contributors and leaders.
Both sessions are free and open to the public. The FSU Faculty Development and Sabbatical Subcommittee funded these events.
