I’m so glad you are here. We live in an ever-changing world, and the speed of that change gets exponentially faster as we go. That is true now more than ever. For many of us, our brains are having a hard time dealing with all that is going on around us. What if there was a way for your life to get easier? Would that interest you?  


I am inviting you to participate in a self-coaching book study in which we will read together a transformational book over six weeks with a fun group. As we take this journey together, you’ll learn principles, models and practical tools you can apply immediately in your life. The content we will cover will help you:


  • Clarify what is most important to you

  • See beyond the thoughts that get in the way of taking action, and

  • Set and score meaningful goals with clarity, focus, ease, and grace.

As your guide through this book study, I will bring the depth of my personal experience using these principles and tools in my own work and life. I have invested hundreds of hours being trained and coached by my mentor Dr. Maria Nemeth, the author of the book, and I use the concepts and tools from Mastering Life’s Energies to coach my clients every week. I will make sure you get it, support you to apply it, and answer your questions. Most of all, I am committed to ensuring we have fun!


This might be a good fit if you:


  • Are seeking clarity in a time of great change

  • Want to understand how your brain works and learn simple ways to retrain your brain

  • Are willing to learn simple tools and concepts that when practiced are the foundation for living a successful life

  • Are interested in practical ways to bring more peace and joy into your life

  • Would enjoy making some new friends along the way


Please note: This is a book study group, not a coaching group. We will be reading and discussing Mastering Life’s Energies, and you’ll be applying the learning and tools in your own life between sessions.


The book study will provide a strong foundation for self-coaching, and I will lead the discussions, answer questions and offer facilitative support in the process.


If you are interested in individual or group coaching, please contact me directly.]


Mastering Life’s Energies: Simple Steps to a Luminous Life at Work and Play by Maria Nemeth, PhD

Here is how Maria describes her book:

“Everyone has had luminous moments in their lives. It’s the “a-ha” moment when one experiences the beauty and grace of life, whether it be when looking into the eyes of a newborn child or watching the sun set over the ocean.

But those moments are usually too brief. Too often, people walk around in a fog, feeling vaguely frustrated, resigned, and cynical and asking all the wrong questions about how to make life better. They miss the purpose for being alive: to wake up and become oneself, to allow others to contribute to them and to, in turn, contribute their gifts to the world.

This book gives readers specific methods for allowing luminosity into their lives on a consistent basis, allowing them to view the world with much younger, more vibrant eyes.”


Maria calls it “luminosity,” though you might also call it flow, or being in the zone. Whatever you call it, I bet you know what she’s referring to. When was the last time you were fully present and engaged, grateful to be alive and doing exactly what you’re doing? Can you remember a specific moment?


This book study is for people who want to make changes in their life so that 2020 (and beyond) is full of luminous moments.

My name is Tina Shaw. I’m a professional coach and seminar leader specializing in strengths-based leadership and team development and supporting clients in transition. I call myself an optimistic realist because I look for the good in people and life, and I am pragmatic. That is why I love this book so much, because it provides simple principles and tools that we can all apply to create a life we would love to live! I am so excited to share these with you!


I live in Cameron Park, CA between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe with my husband Jeff and our little dog Bailey, a Yorkie-Maltese mix. I love supporting my clients as they change their lives by adopting these transformational principles and tools into their everyday practices. I learn so much from them, and they inspire me to deepen my own learning and practice so that together we are able to produce more clarity, focus, ease and grace in our lives.


What in your life are you ready to say “yes” to? Joining this book study will support you to discover what it is you really want and give you the foundation to go after it. It is an invitation to be more of who you really are, to invite more fun and ease into your life. If this interests you, I look forward to seeing you on April 15.



With gratitude,

Tina Shaw
