Meet a Child’s Authentic Self: 7 Flavors of Kids – Exploring the 7 Talents of ThriveTypes® with Laureli Shimayo & Ardis Hoffman

Monday, May 15


Third Street Center, 520 S. Third Street, Carbondale

The light that shines through a child’s eyes reveals their unique genius, natural gifts, greatest strength and deepest capacity. This essence of who they are can be interpreted as their ThriveTypes, a set of archetypes for thriving that point to their easiest access to joy and fulfillment.

Learn about the children in your life – as a parent, caregiver, teacher, therapist – through the lens of the 7 Talents of ThriveTypes. Learn about all 7 Talents, both their shining light and dark shadows. See how to easily honor and encourage authentic exploration and expression and provide children with the richest possible feedback. Get a glimpse of your own 3 Talents, recognize the diversity in the children around you, and discover how to better honor yourself and all the children in your community.

Laureli Shimayo is a life, leadership and love coach, matchmaker, teacher and author. She offers Intuitive Eye Readings of ThriveTypes and Body Psychology Coaching to empower people and organizations to thrive. Laureli has also been a short-term stepparent to three children and coached teens. A series of events and private sessions with Laureli are available in Carbondale May 10-15.

Ardis Hoffman is a heart-centered lifestyle coach focusing on self-love and connection with others. She offers private sessions with individuals, couples and families who need support in creating a more heart-centered life. Ardis has practical experience using ThriveTypes to parent her children from the time her kids were 13 and 16 years old (they are now 23 and 26). It was much easier to understand and recognize her children’s authentic natures while honoring herself and her parenting style.
