Today, we continue our conversation with Elizabeth Bishop, creator of the Conscious Service Approach. We talk about service-based relationships as a container for self-discovery and enlightenment. We discuss why you don’t need to “protect yourself” from the negative energy of others and what you can do instead. Elizabeth shares with us her methodology for how each of us can create a personal philosophy to integrate who we are with how we serve. Anyone who has ever been a teacher, healer, service professional or cared for an ailing love one, will love this heartfelt episode. --- Elizabeth Bishop is the creator of the Conscious Service Approach designed to support helping professionals to reconnect with and fulfill their desire to make a difference in the lives of those they support. Following the completion of a diploma in Developmental Services and a degree in Psychology and Religious Studies, Elizabeth completed a Masters in Adult Education through St. Francis Xavier University, providing the opportunity to test and refine the elements of the Conscious Service Approach. The Conscious Service Approach is intended to offer a source of inspiration, information, and tools to assist helping professionals to transform their practice into one that not only results in high quality service, but is also an expression of their soul.
