YOUR TIME TO SHINE:

A PERSONAL STRATEGIC PLANNING WORKBOOK

Clarify your purpose, identify core values, create your own mission statement, vision statement, personal philosophy, and more!

Many of us find ourselves just going through the motions, being passive characters in our own lives and without a clear sense of purpose. I've definitely gone through phases like this, where I just didn't feel connected and didn't know what to do about it. 


Creating my own personal strategic plan (PSP) years ago has helped me narrow in on what's most important to me in life and then channel my otherwise scattered energy into working toward my loftier goals, all while staying true to myself in the present. That's what I want for you!


This user-friendly workbook will walk you through creating your very own personal strategic plan, giving you tools to not only contemplate your purpose in a structured and meaningful way, but to create a plan of action, implement this plan into your daily life, and build a lifestyle in alignment with what matters to you most.

TRAUMA RECOVERY YOGA

Yoga for Every Body

I have now taught Trauma Recovery Yoga ~ on the mat, in a chair, and to children ~ all over the world. I enthusiastically share this science-based somatic therapy because I know that it works from experience. With self regulation for resilience (SRR) at its foundation, this practice combines affirmations, visualization, and movement to give you tools to recover from trauma, build resilience, and feel a sense of relaxation. It's truly yoga for everybody. 

Connect with me to learn more and schedule private or group sessions for children or adults.

No experience required.

INTERESTED IN STUDYING ABROAD?

Whether you're an undergrad student, grad student, or just interested in crafting a personalized service-learning trip... this is for you!

IPSL Global Institute made it possible for me to experience studying and living in Greece where I finished my masters degree, and I can't speak highly enough of the program quality and ongoing support I've received. Now, as an IPSL ambassador, I want to share these resources with you and connect you with people and opportunities that can help make your dreams come true!

ABOUT ME

"Do no harm but take no shit."

Brenda Hershey is a trauma-informed humanitarian, author of Your Time to Shine, Trauma Recovery Yoga global ambassador and instructor, and IPSL Global Institute (Study Abroad) ambassador.

Growing up in rural Ohio, she craved diversity and adventure, and came to obtain a bachelor’s degree in International Studies. She later went on to receive a master’s degree in Community Development & Action in Chicago. Her curiosity and zest for life has since taken her far beyond the cornfields of Darke County.

She draws from her trauma-informed experience in her work as an international humanitarian. More recently, she managed the medical clinic in an IDP camp of Yazidis in Iraqi-Kurdistan and is currently leading a team on a livelihoods project, enhancing employment opportunities for Syrian refugees in the region.
