Go Within or Go Without – A Poetic Journey of Discovery

Patricia Herreen combines the art of storytelling with her keen observations of human frailty and resilience to produce an anthology of verse that is as timely as it is outspoken. Her wisdom captivates the imagination and reaches across the breadth of humanity as a genre-defying glimpse into the soul.

Heartfelt and honest, Patricia’s words speak a thousand truths that offer comfort to those who have lost faith and plant seeds of encouragement to move us through adversity in search of life’s deeper meaning and purpose. With delicate precision she explores the need to belong and what it means to come home.

“Trish’s poetry sparkles with humour, wit and an achingly clear-eyed honesty. She captures life’s longing with the lightest touch.”

 Elizabeth Haines, Co-Founder, We Can Be Sheroes


“We give ourselves a rare gift when we can accept
that many truths we held were illusions
and many illusions we held were truths.”

– Patricia Herreen

    Trish’s poetry reading was outstanding. She engages her audience and sweeps them up in the comfort of her warm embrace. She speaks effortlessly about life’s difficult subjects with such vibrancy that we felt triumphant in her company. She has a rare gift of reaching people and taking them to the depths of themselves.

    The real beauty of this course, and indeed any course run by Trish is that it dares to go beyond the surface level instruction. Trish is able to intuit deep seated issues or blocks to a person fulfilling their potential and works from that place to produce profound and lasting change. While Trish teaches the incredibly useful techniques of public speaking she is also able to reach the “heart of the matter” so that a person may no longer need to rely on techniques, but rather trust their whole self to guide the way.  Trish, you are a gifted teacher and healer.

    Thanks to the help of Trish’s amazing skills, knowledge, experience, authenticity and honesty. I realised that I always was the empowered person I wanted to be! I could not feel the way I do about myself right now if it wasn’t for taking part in this transformational course!

    My favourite teachers are passionate ones, Patricia Herreen is one of these. Very memorable to me, because she teaches what she loves. She is full of colour, fun, heart and soul. Her gift is sharing her life skills in a myriad of ways which makes time memorable. I find an ease in being around her honesty and truth.

    I had met Trish several times prior to this Workshop. It is her Gift of speaking, underpinned by wisdom learned from both humility and perhaps even childhood humiliation, that Trish arises with such strength & courage to facilitate these insightful Workshops. I am a lot kinder to myself these days and thankful to Trish for the useful tools I have added to my kit. Interestingly enough, I find myself revisiting these concepts for many other situations.

    Trish, I have to thank you for your work with us. Your ability to take a group where they need to go and to read a group and help them explore the underlying issues while keeping everyone feeling completely safe was remarkable. You’ve made a huge impact on me and I hope we get to meet again.

    The most important exercises for me were the role play. I was able to clear some very old inhibiting deep karmic issues, the situation uncannily giving me the opportunity to tap into, using my own voice (I am a sound healer and ex-opera singer) was a stroke of genius on Trish’s part. Trish uses play as the foundation to create a circle of confidence in which all are able to be themselves thus find the voice and focus to become the best fluent speaker possible they can be.

    The skills, knowledge and mentorship that I received by Trish was authentic, professional and caring. This course has given me the belief in my abilities to speak from a place of authenticity and engagement with my audience. The genuineness, passion and clarity Trish shows in her teaching is contagious. I could never have believed that I could have achieved so much in such a short time.

  • Being the Leader of Your Own Life

    I discovered different aspects of myself, which I didn’t know existed, or was always too afraid to show to people. I also discovered that I am a good storyteller and there are people willing to listen to me. I did not realise that I can, and do make a difference in people’s lives. I discovered that I have many gifts, and pass them onto others. By giving we receive so much more. No matter how small the gift, sometimes they are the most important thing in someone’s day.

  • The Heart of Public Speaking

    It was completely different from anything I had ever done before, very engaging, quite challenging on a personal level and lots of fun. A new way of looking at public speaking has given me more confidence to be able to express myself. I felt this workshop allowed me a safe space and I have come away with a slightly different view of the world and my place in it. I also received insight into how others see me, which was quite a different experience.
