Dr. Janet Smith Warfield, Award-Winning Author, Workshop Facilitator, and Speaker for Word Sculptures Publishing has been inducted into the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP’s) Hall of Fame.
While inclusion with the International Association of Top Professionals is an honor in itself, only 10 honored IAOTP members are inducted into the exclusive Hall of Fame each year. These special honorees are distinguished based on their longevity in their fields, the contributions they have made to society, and the impact they have had on their industries. Janet will be honored at IAOTP’s annual awards gala at the end of this year in Las Vegas for not only this award but also for her selection as the Empowered Woman of the Year by IAOTP. www.iaotp.com/award-gala
Janet is being inducted into the Hall of Fame for her outstanding leadership, longevity, commitment to her profession, and human empowerment in her community. The President of IAOTP, Stephanie Cirami stated, “Inducting Janet into our Hall of Fame was an easy decision for our panel to make. Aside from her long list of achievements, accolades, and humanitarian efforts, Janet is gracious, brilliant, humble, and has been supportive of IAOTP since day one. She is a true visionary of her time and just an incredible person and dear friend. I cannot wait to celebrate all of her achievements at the gala this year.”
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 awards, our panel unanimously agreed because we all witnessed Janet in action. She is brilliant at what she does and an inspiration to our members.”
In January 2018, 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 2018, Janet traveled to Branford, Connecticut, for a professionally-filmed video interview with Jim Masters (long-time interviewer for PBS and CUTV News), https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPInOBuXpbg&t=8s. 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, https://soundcloud.com/frankmackay/sets/dr-janet-smith-warfield, which she intends to use as the basis for a new book tentatively entitled Surrendering into Soul: The Heroine’s Journey and the Moral Imperative. In June, she began hosting a new radio show, “Dancing with Words, Dancing with Wisdom,” http://boldbravemedia.com/shows/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. She is currently in the process of creating a new website, featuring each of the people she has interviewed, with an audio and transcript of each interview, a short biography of the person interviewed, and links to more information about each person and how to contact them.
This year, Janet is actively participating with Terry Patten, best-selling author of A New Republic of the Heart, in Terry’s one-year-long experiment, bringing people together from all over the planet into “we-space,” where together, they form intimate bonds of mutual compassion, support, and sharing of their talents, skills, and gifts with one another and with the world.
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. It is globally distributed and has been translated into four languages. Her article “Freedom from Fear” was featured in J. Kim Wright's American Bar Association bestseller, Lawyers as Peacemakers: Practicing Holistic, Problem-Solving Law.
During the Cold War, Janet was selected by the American Field Service as an American exchange student to Berlin, Germany. She holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Swarthmore College, a Juris Doctor Degree cum laude from Rutgers School of Law - Camden, and practiced law in Atlantic City, New Jersey, for 22 years. She has trained with motivational coaches Mark Victor Hansen, T. Harv Eker, Bob Proctor, and John Childers and has studied with spiritual leaders and visionaries, Matthew Fox, Andrew Harvey, Oscar Miro Quesada, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Jean Houston, Joanna Macy, Carolyn Myss, and Ken Wilber. She has eaten fire, broken boards with her hand, jumped from eagle poles, walked barefoot on hot coals, and bent a steel rebar with a partner using only her neck.
In 2018, Janet was named Empowered Woman of the Year by the International Association of Top Professionals. In 2017 she received the lifetime achievement award, and in 2016, IAOTP honored her as Top Professional of the Year in Consciousness Education. In 2015, she was selected as Most Prominent Professional in the Field of Consciousness Education by Continental Who’s Who, her photo and award displayed on a Times Square billboard.
In 2006, while living in Panama, she began facilitating interactive workshops. She has been a featured guest on numerous radio and TV talk shows: "Dare to Dream Radio," with Deborah Dachinger; "Waking Up—Learning What Your Life is Trying to Teach You," with John Earle; "Shifts of Mind for a World of Renewal," with John D. Schmidt; and “Dancing with Words, Dancing with Wisdom” with Pol Cousineau.
Dr. Warfield attributes her success to her deep love of learning, intellectual rigor, and passion for truth and justice instilled by her educator parents.
