Live Events

"Bridget, you are an out and out rockstar. Nobody else can pull off leopard pants, kick-ass heels, and a hot salsa top and then be so damn intelligent and incredibly inspiring. You're the whole package and the real deal. Thrilled to know you and love you. Great job."

Bridget's corporate events are designed to uniquely address a wide range of audiences and intended outcomes. The 2019 recording below was part of a 2-day Phillips Corporation Senior Team Meeting which included senior executives from 2 continents and their spouses. This was the first time spouses were invited to this type of meeting and Bridget designed a session that would foster self-inquiry, meaningful conversation, and a palpable group connection. Because Bridget stressed privacy so adamantly during this event plus the unexpected surprise of the video cameras, the energy from this event exploded after the cameras stopped rolling. Not only were people talking about their insights throughout the rest of that day and into the weekend, at one point, CEO Alan Phillips even lifted Bridget into the air! (see here.)

She has done so much research and had so many personal experiences, both as a Licensed Acupuncturist and on her own incredible life journey. This women knows her stuff!! Run, don’t walk to hear one of her inspiring and enlightening talks. Your whole person will be joyful and grateful you did.”

"Bridget is sensational! The way she tells real-life stories to illustrate her presentation is captivating. Whenever she speaks, there is so much energy in the room that it’s hard to conceive an audience not loving her. Ours did!"

"This presentation was so tight, and poetry in every word."

Anonymous feedback from a talk given at the Howard County General Hospital/Johns Hopkins Medicine Wellness Center

"Bridget’s Mind-Body Wellness Series was excellent. Though optional, it was well attended and enthusiastically received. Bridget charismatically wove together useful information, teaching stories and mind-body practices in a way that was engaging and immediately helpful. We will definitely have her back again!"

 

Sherry Stiles

AOL Baltimore (corporate event)

“Our organization, A Community of Transformation (ACT),  has been privileged to have Bridget speak to our group every year for the past few years. As the program chair for ACT, I often have a waiting list of  potential presenters, but I always make sure Bridget is on our calendar. We rarely have a speaker present  two years in a row, but she is one of our most requested speakers and brings in a big crowd. Bridget is an agent of transformation.”

 

Gloria Hesseloff
Program Chair for ACT

"Bridget, Your talk the other day meant the world to me. I was so inspired and my heart was so opened by it. It helped me to move my own practice to a more joyful place. I've found I often have feelings of "not good enough" in my own health and spirit practices. Your talk really moved me out of that conversation to see the possibility of practice being more joyful, creative and fun! I have talked about nothing else but you and your book the last few days. Having struggled with chronic Lyme disease the last 14 years, your work means just as much to the me that is a patient, as the me that is a practitioner. You are wonderful!"

Unblock and Unlock Heart-Mind-Body Resources and Heal

Art with Heart

Live Large and Transcend Limits

May 5th, 2017
5:30pm
Severn School Alumni Weekend & Arts Showcase
201 Water St, Severna Park, MD 21146

Transcend limits, unlock dormant resources, and unleash latent healing capacities all by using the heart-mind-body connection! What we think of as unusual or unexpected healing or peak performance is often a *normal* capacity once we understand how to change our biochemistry by using cutting-edge, research-based, mind-body strategies. Just as there is a particular chemistry of success within the business magnate who takes a company all the way to excellence, and within the elite athlete who takes a gold, there are particular biochemistries associated with healing and with thriving in any domain. Join renowned mind-body healing expert, corporate coach, and acupuncturist Bridget Hargadon Hughes, Severn Class of ’91 and author of Unlocking the Heart of Healing, for a lively lecture and book signing at the Severn School inaugural Alumni Art Gallery show, and learn how to unlock healing and more. This is open to the public. All are welcome!

Unlocking new possibilities for healing requires that all three pivots of our Heart-Mind-Body connection dynamically interrelate with signals that awaken our latent capacities to heal. Bridget’s work has been featured in Pathways to Virtuosity: Possibility Thinking magazine and she has received a Virtuoso Award from a multinational corporation for her innovative ways of helping clients authentically transform their inner state to thrive and heal. Join Bridget for stories that illuminate keys that have helped clients from a variety of situations and backgrounds to unlock dormant or unexpected healing forces and resources. 

Maryland Psychological Association Integrative Health Conference

5 Keys to Unlocking the Heart of Healing
June 9th, 2017
2:15–4:15
Bon Secours Retreat Center, Marriottsville, Maryland
Attend 5 Keys to Unlocking the Heart of Healing and learn to use your heart-mind-body connection to heal. This class is a dynamic interplay of cutting-edge mind-body science interwoven with inspiring wisdom stories, fascinating case studies, and experiential exercises to equip you with the tools to unlock dormant or latent inner resources that impact mental, spiritual, and physical health.
Self-healing themes include: Cultivating a state of heart that unlocks Inner Molecules of Medicine®, Reversing Divine Deficit Disorder®, and using a Feeling Mantra® to uplift the feeling tone in your heart to profoundly improve the ability of your body to heal.
Deep and lasting transformative change can be approached through the heart, the mind, or the body. An intervention in any of the three impacts all three. Bridget will share research behind some of the biophysiological blocks she encountered on her own path to psychological healing: cerebral allergies, microbes that altered optimal brain functioning, and genetic SNP’s that predisposed her, and two of her ancestors who had been hospitalized for mental illness, to malnutrition states that functionally appeared to be mental illness. There will be an opportunity to brainstorm as a group how to best support, guide and help suffering patients faced with complex biophysiologic blocks to mental health in the context of a medical system that doesn’t yet present an easily accessed organized approach to such challenges.
Unlocking heart-mind-body healing unlocks our fullest capacities for living playfully, powerfully, and in alignment with our sacred purpose. Heal & grow from the inside out!
