What we're about

My name is Barbara Hyman, and I'm an author, teacher, and healer. I've been on the Spiritual Path for awhile, by virtue of my advanced age. (Pushing 60!). That makes me sound a lot older than I feel.

I feel young because every day I connect with my Spiritual path, and my love, which is the energetic frequency and vibration of communication and manifestation.

This is what I teach about, and what my upcoming book, Deliberate Trust, A Guide to Intentional Manifestation is all about.

So, when you're speaking about communication, in my book, you're speaking about love.

And when you're speaking about improving communication, in my book, you're speaking about personal growth, and spiritual evolution.

So, I hope we can meet, and make a difference in eachothers' lives!

Thanks for your interest and participation in this powerful conversation about living in harmony with other Human Beings.

Enhance Your Social Intelligence (San Jose)

333 W San Carlos St

Are you ever stuck making small talk or unable to get up the courage to approach that awesome person at the party? Do you wonder why some people exude magnetism and charisma? Fortunately, this summer, Jaunty is here to brighten up your social skills with our effective, free workshop! This fun, interactive workshop is Jaunty's first step into social mastery and includes a mix of theory, exercises, and in-person socialization. We’ll look into the science of attraction and practice of tried and tested techniques that will enhance the way you connect with people. Our workshop covers body language, conversational agility, and belief systems, and examines what may be holding you back from your highest potential. If you want to become the social dynamo of your friendships, romantic endeavors, or business relations, join us! Be sure to eat beforehand, but beer and tea will be served. Seating is limited.

Please arrive early. About your Instructor: Craig Gibbons is a Head Instructor at Jaunty. Growing up in a small town near San Luis Obispo, Craig struggled with shyness. Wanting a change, he later delved deep into social and emotional intelligence through academic study and personal experiments. At college, he realized he wanted to work with people and switched majors from Computer Science to Human Performance. After years of self-training, Craig discovered Jaunty and became Eric's apprentice. Craig has coached people in social dynamics and dating through Jaunty since 2012. When he's not exploring positive psychology and self-development, he enjoys learning about metagames and being outdoorsy with his dad. Both Eric and Craig spent thousands of hours experimenting and researching the limits of social behavior to create the tried and tested course material for Jaunty. They are tirelessly dedicated to helping students achieve their goals and become social dynamos. FAQs Location?
