Paula Sellars, Vice President

Paula Sellars, Vice President With a Master of Social Work, I began my career as a family systems therapist, with specialization in adolescent development and trauma recovery. In the 1990's I filled supervisory positions in hospital psychiatric settings as well as maintained a large private practice. In the late 1990's, I completed advanced bodywork training and practiced massage and craniosacral therapy in combination with psychotherapy for several years. Compassion, humor, straightforwardness, and a penchant for the symbolic characterized all of my work, and I made it my practice to train with teachers on the leading edge of my fields. On the side, I have been a student of quantum physics, energy medicine, and philosophy. I am also certified in Spiral Dynamics and the Enneagram.

In 2002, I participated in the Cliff Jumping Program® and discovered my passion for leadership development. Since then I have become the Vice President of Phoenix Possibilities Inc. and have participated in the development of our Consciousness Training Programs for organizations. I also utilized the components of our Consciousness Training model to develop a child sexual abuse prevention curriculum for Darkness to Light, a national non-profit organization. The curriculum is titled Stewards of Children: Adults Resolving Child Sexual Abuse in Community. Designed solely for adults, the curriculum is comprised of a workbook, film, and an online training. It has been translated into Spanish and has been applied internationally in 11 countries thus far. Stewards of Children is presently being studied by the Center for Disease Control in partnership with the National Center for Victims of Crime. Its efficacy across the United Sates supersedes that of other training curriculum due in part to its consciousness training underpinnings.

I am also the an author of Partnerships in Motion: A Renaissance in Aging.  Also a film and workbook curriculum, Partnerships in Motion teaches the inner skills that enable vitality, creativity, and partnership in the Aging process, for those who are aging and for all those connected to them. 

I am passionate about enabling people to lead, to align their thoughts, personal resonance and actions with their divinely-inspired desires. I believe that while this is risky and personal, it is how we come to know who we truly are, and what we have to contribute in our world. I understand and enjoy the energetic and psychological underbelly of the change process in large systems. I am a catalyst for personal risk and have an ability to evoke the union of one's life purpose with their day-to-day choices.
