The purpose of the books is to start a wider conversation.
So can I come on over? Can we talk? These ideas ache for the dialogue where folks can at least agree that things do not have to be the way they’ve always been. Bring me in! I talk, but I also listen, connect, and motivate. Let’s see what possibilities we can explore together.
Shepherd Siegel would love to meet you, engage with and play with you and yers. Within the conventions of a featured speaker, but of course! With more than a nod to the magic of vaudeville, standup, and the fruits of diligent research. Dr. Siegel brings the Trickster archetype to life right before your very eyes. And explains how giving tricksters their due is going to make the world a better place.
