Dr. Rhonda Deon, Guest
Dr. Rhoda Deon is a spiritual life coach and musician with over 30 years of experience in education. She believes joy – not suffering – is the key to changing one’s life.
On a mission to normalize the struggle of being human, Rhoda is obsessed with the intersectionality of art, science, spirituality, and human behavior. More specifically, the intersections that instantly remove limiting beliefs, reveal new possibilities and restore autonomy. She is here to remind the weary there is nothing to fight, only choices to be made.
Rhoda is a co-founder of 100 Months to Change. This global coalition of changemakers is committed to building a world that works for everyone by 2030. She is also the creator of the Companion Curriculum for the film, Beyond Zero. The set of classroom resources helps students and educators learn more about conscious business practices.
When she’s not out changing the world, Rhoda enjoys kitchen experiments, playing fetch with her cat, Prentice, and gravitating toward anything that involves dirt, trees or water.
