Ruth Bachman
A Narrow Spot in the Hourglass:  Lessons in Integrity, Courage & Grace
Change is the narrow spot in the hourglass. The sand travels from the top, through the tight spot, to the bottom. The sand is the same — but with a different arrangement.  Experience has taught inspirational writer/activist Ruth Bachman that change can serve as a catalyst to sharpen our sense of purpose and recognize what is important.  How do we discover and enhance our capacity to accept “what is,” embrace it and move forward?

Speaking at the 2015 Sharing the Experience Conference, Ruth will use the metaphor of an hourglass to inspire us to recognize our resources for navigating change throughout life.  Do we stick our head in the sand and pretend nothing has happened; or accept the inevitability of change and live life with renewed abundance?  Whether she is addressing medical professionals, corporate leaders, faith-based groups or service providers, Ruth delivers her message as a living authority on managing change through the narrow spots of our lives.

Ruth's Story ...

In February of 2003, I was a left-handed woman, wife and mother in apparent good health. I ate reasonably well, was physically active, had annual checkups, practiced meditation and yoga, attended church regularly, and volunteered in the community.

Today, I am all of those things plus the grandmother of 4; except now, after diagnosis and treatment of soft tissue sarcoma, I am a right-handed amputee with a renewed purpose for life - a mission to share an empowering message equipping individuals with the perspective and resources necessary to navigate the inevitable changes that occur in life, by design or by happenstance, while recognizing the powerful potential for transformation by embracing “what is”.
