Sample Speaking Topics

* Succeeding on your OWN terms – Most people desire to be “successful.” But the truth is that success means different things to different people. And many of us have bought into a model of success that was defined by someone else, rather than asking ourselves what a truly fulfilling life would look like–on our own terms. In this talk Devaa will offer a model for defining your own version of success, with poignant stories and participative exercises that will leave you feeling empowered.
* Birthing Your Soul’s Calling – Do you have a sense that you are here in this lifetime to make an important contribution to our planet? You may have a sense of it, and you may be well on your way. In this talk, Devaa offers a model for how to identify your soul’s calling, or destiny path, and how you can make steady progress each week.
* Unleashing Your Visionary Potential – When you’re connected to your highest vision, you create expansive possibilities for yourself and those around you. You discern what you’re here to do and be in this lifetime and receive the ideas and strategies to manifest it. You’re also able to imagine innovative solutions to very old and enduring problems. In this session we will begin to unleash your true visionary potential so you can dream into a greater-than-imagined reality for yourself – without feeling constrained by money or time.
* Enhancing Your Leadership Presence – Being a great leader requires many skills and attributes. But at the foundation of it all is who you are BEING, while you are doing your thing in the world. Learn tools and tips to expand your leadership presence, so people pay attention to you and want to follow your lead.
* Curving the Lines: Merging Your Masculine & Feminine For Holistic Living Throughout history, the masculine paradigm has dominated, and as a result, our world has become very unbalanced and depleted. Today, whether male or female, we ALL have an unprecedented opportunity to harness the best of both qualities to live WHOLE lives, where we are healthy, joyful, and making a difference. Learn how to sucessfully harness both these energies in this session with Devaa.

Exceeded Expectations

When my husband and I were searching for a wedding officiant to preside over our ceremony, we were unsure exactly what we were looking for. Being that we are not regular church-goers, we did not have a regular minister to turn to. We came into contact with Devaa through her website and instantly felt that we needed to meet with her. She made us feel so comfortable and gave us great advice in our first meeting. We knew we didn't need to look any further and that she would be perfect for us. At the ceremony, she not only met but exceeded our expectations. Thank you Devaa for your warmth and helpfulness in planning and executing our incredible wedding ceremony!

Kimberly Williams, Sales Representative

Highly Recommend

Devaa is an incredibly powerful presence and a very grounded and visionary, spiritual person. She has a very solid grasp on all faith traditions and I believe she can serve wholly and authentically in any scenario or situation. I always recommend Devaa to friends and clients, as I know she can create an authentic and powerful ritual/ceremony for any occasion. Give yourself a great gift and call her today!

Tristy Taylor, Interfaith Minister

Devaa was a great help from the beginning.

When my husband and I decided to get married, one of our main priorities was to find someone who could honor both our separate religious backgrounds (he is Jewish and I grew up with a wide variety of spiritual views with a base in Christianity) and our current beliefs, which are non religious but very spiritual. Sounds complicated, right? Devaa was a great help form the beginning. She was a calm and warm presence from the first meeting on--making a real effort to get to know us both--and she was very flexible about our ceremony wishes. She gave us many different ceremonies and we were together able to craft a something that truly represented us both! Devaa was wonderful on the day of our wedding, kept the groom calm and made our ceremony both relaxed and very special. She even coordinated her outfit to our wedding colors! I could not have asked for a better person to join us together for the rest of our lives. She is kind, open, creative, and has a wonderfully calming presence. She recently called to check in with us, such a great touch! Thank you again for making the most important day of our life so special.

Zarah Levy, Los Angeles

She melted me into a state of bliss!

Devaa’s sound healing wove a spell that held me, healed me, and melted me into a state of bliss! I highly recommend her work to anyone who feels stuck or out of balance and wants a real breakthrough into another realm.

Lion Goodman, Evocateur, EverydayAwakening.com

I came back home to my body.

During my sound healing session with Devaa, I felt like I came back home to my body. I had been in acute pain with a knee injury. Our session left me feeling soothed and that my body was my ally–not my enemy. Afterwards, I was very aware of how grounded and embodied I felt. I also felt calm, close to spirit, more on purpose in the way of ‘flow’. I was WAY less rushed and felt present, powerful, steady, focused and deeply happy. Finally, I had the deepest night of sleep after the session, and my knee definitely feels better!

Dr. Laurie Klein, Chiropractor

Devaa is an unparalleled strategic coach.

For me, an entrepreneur with a spiritually oriented business, I’ve found her knowledge particularly useful because she clearly knows what it means to run this kind of enterprise successfully. From her first advice to me on what my business model needed to look like to her most recent suggestions on how best to structure and price my offerings, her guidance has been spot on. She’s helped me either get to the next level or refocus and regroup — all important moments in the growth of my enterprise. This woman knows her stuff. GRAB the opportunity to work with Devaa!

Marguerite Rigoglioso, Ph.D. Founding Director, Seven Sisters Mystery School

Blown Away!

I am so blown away by my time with Devaa – for her love, perception and guidance. This is a huge piece for me, I just know it. I already feel so much lighter and relaxed. I am so grateful for the opportunity and the wonderful insights and commitment to myself. My New Years’ wish was to experience more magic in my life – enough of the heavy slogging and burdensome approach. My session with Devaa was definitely in the magic category!

Rhonda St. Croix, Canada

I took advantage of Devaa’s services to help me through a critical phase and decision making process in my life.

I was trying to figure out my next steps, I wasn’t clear on my direction, and I was scared. Devaa and I explored my professional strengths, my personal strengths, and my connection to Source. We dove deeply and fearlessly into the gaps in my unconscious and my long held defense structures. Her guidance supported me as I dug DEEPly to find my confidence and authentic power. Her wise use of tools such as meditation, journaling, book references, ritual, dream work, and other instruments – her deep wisdom, patient listening, and reflecting- were instrumental in my personal process. I am grateful to her and the Force that brought her into my life. Thank you Devaa!! The work we did has encouraged my heart to stay open and fearless, beginning afresh, every day.

Annabella Roig, MS, MPH

I had a profound and connected session with Devaa.

Extraordinary. I am so very grateful. I have already noticed a shift. My body is more comfortable, much less pain, and lighter. The burdens have released and the flow of love, joy and gratitude increasing gradually which is beautiful. My spirit is soaring and free again. Thank you! It was such a pleasure to meet and work with Devaa. I look forward to doing so again in the future.

Dr. Laurie Klein, Chiropractor

After just one session with Devaa, I’m finding that I am able to maintain a sense of grounded presence in situations that might have put me on edge before.

My husband was in an accident this week, hit and run, and I held such a calm presence for him, and that is continuing as we go about the multitude of details that come as an aftermath. Other, less extreme, situations have come up also, and I can definitely tell the difference.

Dianna

I have had the pleasure of working with Devaa Haley Mitchell as a coach and mentor.

Devaa brings a grounded, authentic presence to each session, and is able to drop deep into what is real.  She is gentle enough to create a nurturing, safe space, and bold enough to cut through the extraneous and say what needs to be said to evoke change.  She is an evolutionary change agent and an exemplar who brings her whole self to supporting her clients to bring their fullest, most radiant selves to the world. 

Lissin Lev Chaya, Co-Director of Earthcapades, Wedding Officiant & Life Celebrant

The time (or should I say timelessness) that I spent with Devaa was profound.

After years of seeing all kinds of ’experts’ I can honestly say the time with Devaa broke something loose and now I feel burden-free, as well as much lighter and more joyful. I recommend her work to anyone who is ready to fly.

Marcia Wieder, CEO and Founder Dream University

Devaa is an amazing coach and spiritual mentor.

Through my work with her I've been able to fully embody my life purpose and step into my power, which is critical to accomplishing the mission I have for my life. After doing many years of work with many other coaches and teachers, I knew that my next step was to work with Devaa. Because of the work with her, I have been able to create the job of my dreams as well as start a brand new organization doing sacred-service trips to 3rd world countries in service to marginalized women and children on the planet. I am finally becoming the fully empowered woman that I knew I was meant to be! She's great with the inner, spiritual work as well as the outer, nuts-and-bolts business work required to accomplish your dreams. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Kim Carpenter, VP - Operations & Head Marketing Trainer at Conscious Marketing Inc.

Thank you Devaa!

I’ve met a lot of teachers, healers, and leaders in my years on the speaking circuit. When I wanted to dive deeper with my work and share from a new level of vulnerability, I turned to Devaa. She helped me lead from my authenticity, connect with my depth, and open in ways that proved energizing and effective. Her support enabled me to go to a whole new level in my public presentation and bring new qualities to my leadership. She helped me in a million ways that I cannot even describe. I am blessed by her presence.

Marci Shimoff, Best-Selling author with over 14 million books sold, including Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul and Happy for No Reason

Devaa is a living example of the Evolutionary Woman arising in our midst.

Combining brilliant intellect, business experience, spiritual development and now a major outreach into the world to assist is all in our evolution, she is a loving and inspiring woman leading us forward in the 21st century.

Barbara Marx Hubbard, Foundation for Conscious Evolution

Devaa’s extraordinary depth of presence creates a supportive and sacred space for exploring one’s spiritual path.

My work with Devaa helped me connect to Spirit in deep and profound ways, and beautifully supported my personal evolution.

Tarra Christoff, MA, Life Coach

Devaa could be called a spiritual midwife, assisting people in the birthing their inner-selves.

She empowers you, assists you, gently encourages you, and honors you for your efforts. With Devaa’s impeccable assistance, I was able to timely go through what is so far the most powerful and mysterious spiritual experience of my life. I am extremely grateful!
