Since then her repertoire of workshops has expanded greatly and she has taught nationally and internationally, including Canada, Australia, England, Italy, Greece, and Poland. Her topics include meditation and guided imagery, the mind-body connection, effectively using affirmations and visualization, stress management, new thought principles for creating the life you want, prosperity and financial freedom, how to self-publish, breathwork, and Reiki natural healing.

Patricia has had the privilege of studying with some of the premier spiritual leaders of our time, including Louise Hay, Terry Cole-Whitaker, Dr. Deepak Chopra, and Marianne Williamson. In 1986, she was chosen by Louise Hay as one of five teachers to lead the popular, Love Yourself, Heal Your Life workshop. This led to Patricia developing a training program which has trained over 1,400 workshop leaders worldwide.
