Chauncey Beaty, also known as The Heart Worker, wants us to leave TEDxGreenville 2014 remembering one thing from her Unzipped talk. “We have to make a conscious effort to always go back to the soft—always open our hearts,” she says.
According to TEDxGreenville founder and program team member, Marc Bolick, “We are in for a treat. Chauncey Beaty is a high-energy, engaging person with a thoughtful talk about adult children treating their adult parents like friends, and connecting–for the first time–in a genuine, loving way.” Marc reassures us, “Chauncey won’t be lecturing on theory. She will tell her story about how she came home to her mom, and started realizing the importance of daughtering to heal and restore that unique relationship.”
A Greenville native who returned home a couple of years ago, Chauncey is a speaker, certified life coach, Relationship Educator with Safe Harbor, Inc. and CEO of I Work Heart, LLC. She is also a performance poet, with numerous accomplishments including being a two time Women of the World Poetry Slam finalist. In 2009, Chauncey was ranked as 6th finalist, and in 2010 she was the 3rd highest ranked female slam poet internationally.
Chauncey spends most of her free time in the company of loved ones or reading. Without a television in her home, she usually has her nose in a good read, but, she admits, “I do go over to my mom’s periodically to catch up on my trash T.V. watching.” She also enjoys board games and cards, but Chauncey says that what brings her the greatest amount of joy is “creating safe and sacred spaces that help women do transformational work.” Her eyes light up when she says this, and you know how deeply important this work is to her.
