Rebecca Ellen Augustine earned a B.A. in Sociology from North Dakota State University, and is a lifetime member of Alpha Kappa Delta, the Sociological Honor Society. Recognized as a Human Rights Defender by Amnesty International, she earned certificates in the Science of Happiness from Berkeley and in Existential Well-Being Counseling from KU Leuven, both on the edX platform. She is also a Master NLP Practitioner.
Like many people, Rebecca has witnessed and experienced the “pain of the world”. She acknowledges both personal and global sociopolitical turmoil not only as an ideological crisis but also as a spiritual crisis. With over three decades of working for the greater good along with in-the-trenches real-life experience – facilitating holistic change, and offering presence, reflective listening, empathy, and basic attendance to people – Rebecca’s view is one of hope and renewal.
As an advocate for growth, communication, and positive change, Rebecca assists communities, organizations, and individuals to transmute despair, apathy, anger, and overwhelm into empowerment based on choice. Rebecca provides encouragement and healing support to people engaged in transforming our way of life into a more life-sustaining and connected global society.
Together with her business partner – author, social theorist, and well-being expert Donna R. Wood – she works to equip people with the inner resources they need to emerge as their best selves into the family, workplace, community, nation, and global society. Donna and Rebecca do speaking engagements, and present webinars, workshops, seminars, and retreats to show people how to take effective actions to achieve meaningful personal change that transforms their experience.
Rebecca is an ordained minister, and officiates weddings whenever she has the opportunity. She is a devoted herb gardener, grateful parent, experienced natural perfumer, terrible fencer, enthusiastic home cook, gemstone aficionado, avid reader, happy wife, amateur opera and jazz singer, passionate writer, spiritual philosopher, essential oil connoisseur, and eager student of quantum physics.
