Welcome back to Consider Yourself Hugged! Click here to listen to Episode 153. OR click YouTube below to watch! (***Disclaimer: We provide these notes as a skeleton for the show - nothing fancy 😄)

Hello, everyone! First, I want to start with a heartfelt thank you. Your kindness has been a beacon during my recovery, and I'm pleased to say I'm doing well – the stitches are out, and my head is clear, all thanks to your well-wishes!

Our AI Adventure:

In this special episode, my son Jamie and I share the evolution of our work with Artificial Intelligence (AI) – a journey that's as personal as it is professional. We're not just mother and son; we're collaborators on a mission to demystify AI and make it accessible to everyone.

First, The Birth of "Still Human AI Workshops":

Our conversations have been filled with excitement and ideas that led us to create the "Still Human AI Workshops". This is our way of building a bridge between humans and technology through a subscription-based Patreon community. Click here for more information.

Exclusive Content: Monthly live Zoom webinars, a private Discord group, and a resource archive – it's all part of the package.

Building Community: We aim to cultivate a space where everyone feels welcome to learn, discuss, and grow in their understanding of AI.

Second, AI Lunch & Learns:

Alongside our workshops, we're hosting free AI Lunch & Learn sessions every third Friday of the month – a snapshot of AI's potential in a concise, one-hour format. Click here to register.

Personalizing AI:

Jamie's enthusiasm is infectious as he talks about the personal side of AI – how it can help plan a special recipe or enrich family moments. AI isn't just about efficiency; it's about enriching our lives with attention to the details that matter.

Journey to This Moment:

The road here has been filled with learning and experimentation. Three years ago, Jamie started an AI company, and it's transformed just as much as the industry itself. From tackling politics to navigating the pandemic's challenges, his company's growth parallels our growing fascination and expertise with AI.

Bottom Line - here are the 2 options:

For Subscribers: First Friday of every month, 12-1 PM CST – where the magic happens with extended Q&A and hands-on learning. Click here for more information

Open to All: Third Friday of every month, 12-1 PM CST – an overview of AI in digestible bites. Click here to register.

Our Vision:

We're here to reassure you that AI doesn't have to be daunting. As I reflect on my own path with AI, which began with a creative project for my husband's 60th birthday, I realize how much these tools have to offer. They're here to assist, to inspire, and to connect us in ways we're just beginning to understand.

Join us on this enlightening journey into the world of AI. Whether through our "Still Human AI Workshops" or the AI Lunch & Learns, we promise to guide you with a gentle hand and an open heart ❤️

Grace Lichtenstein, MS

I am an award-winning international speaker/trainer, psychotherapist, coach, consultant, and a huge fan of all things nap-related. For over 25 years, I have been working with individuals and corporate teams to improve their health, become more productive, and reduce their stress. Through my training in both Western and Eastern wellness philosophies (including a BA in Psychology, an MS in Counseling Psychology, and certifications in addiction treatment), I truly have a comprehensive view of "what works". In addition, my diverse experience working with thousands of people in all 50 states and in 25 other countries (ranging from native New Yorkers to Native Alaskans and from the FBI to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops), has allowed me to pinpoint some of the universal characteristics of successful individuals and teams.

Through my signature online, on-demand coaching program or with one of my live training or speaking sessions, I provide the tools to help almost every individual and team reach their true potential: healthier, more productive, and less stressed.
