Honey Ward was born and raised in Southern California. At the age of 26, she participated in The Advocate Experience, a transformational weekend workshop (later renamed The Experience), founded by Rob Eichberg (author of Coming Out: An Act of Love) and David Goodstein. “My life lit up like a light bulb,” Honey says. Honey soon began facilitating The Experience programs. After Rob Eichberg and David Goodstein passed away, Honey was named the heir to the work. Since that time, as a public speaker, seminar leader, corporate trainer, and program facilitator throughout the United States, Honey has led hundreds of events, touching thousands of lives. Simultaneously, she has supported many additional people through personal and professional success coaching.
The Experience was one of two founding organizations of National Coming Out Day (celebrated every year on October 11), and its graduates were instrumental in its success, especially in the early years.
Over the years, Honey also developed herself as a Reiki Master, Certified Hypnotherapist, and Qigong Instructor, and deepened her skills through the study of energy medicine (EFT/SET), breakthrough communication, NLP, and much more. In the early years of the AIDS epidemic, Honey was involved in creating one of the first well-being programs for people living with HIV/AIDS. Her goal in all her endeavors has been to make the world a better place, and support people to tap into their own innate reservoirs of love, truth, and wisdom. According to Honey, when this happens, “sparks fly, hearts open, and the world starts to live up to its possibility.”
