IAOTP is incredibly honored to be able to recognize Dr. Janet Smith Warfield for her success and dedication.When Janet was a guest of honor and keynote speaker for the 2016 IAOTP’s Annual Awards Gala at the Garden City Hotel in New York, IAOTP’s President Stephanie Cirami stated: “Janet gave an empowering, motivating and thought-provoking presentation.  When I nominated her for the Empowered Woman of the Year and Top Motivational Speaker of the Year, our panel unanimously agreed because we all witnessed Janet in action.  She is brilliant at what she does and an inspiration to our members.”  Janet co-facilitates a provocative webinar series entitled The Expanding Consciousness Collective (ECC), ECC is a group of conscious co-creators who gather online bimonthly to discuss issues that matter, such as climate change, the patriarchy, and money versus service.Last year, she participated in a two-week expedition to Vanuatu, South Sea Islands, and New Zealand, where she spoke in Dunedin Stadium,, lived in a pre-Maori community, and helped train people without clean water in the use of Sawyer water filters.This year, in January, Janet spoke in La Jolla, California, at the “Be the Voice of Positive Change Gathering”; in February, she explored temples and ashrams in Southern India on a Sacred Activism tour with Andrew Harvey; and in March, she spoke at the International Women’s Day celebration in Katwadde, Uganda, went on safari in the Greater Serengeti, Tanzania, and explored Pretoria, Franschhoek, Cape Town, and the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa.In May, Janet traveled to Branford, Connecticut, for a professionally-filmed video interview with Jim Masters (long-time interviewer for PBS and CUTV News), Jim interviewed Janet about some of her consciousness-shifting experiences and her initial struggles to find the words with which to communicate them. In the video, Janet talks about her “heroine’s journey,” her struggles with terror and rage, her explorations into what we humans do with words, her explorations into human power dynamics (power over, power under, power against, and power with), and the ultimate questions: how do we use analytic, divisive words to shift our own consciousness to align with a “Power Greater than Ourselves” and ultimately shift into “Power With,” not only other human beings, but all of creation? How do we use analytic, divisive words to facilitate and co-create a peaceful, powerful, prosperous planet – together?In May, Janet also completed another series of six radio interviews with Frank MacKay Media,, which she intends to use as the basis for a new book. In June, she began hosting a new radio show, “Dancing with Words, Dancing with Wisdom,”, where she interviews fascinating changemakers from all over the world who are collectively expanding the consciousness of our planet.Janet, while living in Roatan, Honduras, wrote her Amazon bestselling and Next Generation Indie Book Award winning book, Shift: Change Your Words, Change Your World. Shift is a creative tool for expanding consciousness.
