Came across this youtube video that was sent to me by Anodea Judith. I went to one of her workshops this past February at Kripalu (Creating On Purpose) and enjoyed every minute of it! This is a great guided meditation to use at the end of your day! Enjoy!!
Okay...time to walk the talk so to speak! I had a very hibernating winter! I had lost my motivation to move...not a good thing! Combine that with unconscious/mindless eating and it was a recipe for disaster. Add on the guilt I was oozing with each day, and I was turning into a not so happy camper! Fortunately, I am blessed to have a career that allows me the indulgence of free time in the the summer!! I knew I had to make a change and get moving and to take better care of myself. I armed myself with books that would inspire me: Mind-Fulness by Ellen J. Langer to understand more about the effects of mindlessness in my life, The War of Art by Steven Pressfield to kick myself in the butt and overcome resistance, and 50 ways to soothe yourself without food by Susan Albers, Psy.d, to get a better understanding of why eating is so soothing and to gain some techniques to change my relationship with food. Next came the "find a new gym for the 100th time in my life". While I was at the beach drinking my coffee by the water, it just hit me to try that "sherpa"(coolest name ever) place I read about recently. So I drove straight there! The moment I walked in the door I was greeted with a warm smile and handshake by Jean Paul. I was impressed that he actually wanted to hear my story, and he sat there very engaged and interested in what I wanted to say. His deep blue eyes didn't hurt to look at either! So, without waiting another minute, I signed up and committed myself to working out 3 times a week for the next 8 weeks. As I write this, I already finished 3 sessions and can't wait to continue with it. I beat my resistance!! It sure feels good to overcome all the negative influences of my own thoughts! Positive change....forward movement....it feels good!

Always Into Love
By Danna Faulds
On this voyage of
the soul, may we be
our common ground
visible beneath the surface differences.
May we braid the
threads of reconciliation
into a chain of possibility
that joins, heals, and
includes what once
May our shared prayer
be answered: to grow
so open that there is
no "them" or "us",
only the One, moving
always into love.

Open the Door
Integrative Health Coaching
The Road goes ever, on and on
Down from the door where it began
Now far ahead the Road has gone
And I must follow, if I can
Pursuing it with eager/weary feet
Until it joins some larger way
Where other paths and byways meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
The Fellowship of the Ring
My vision as an Integrative Health Coach begins with us standing on the threshold of a door. I have a deep curiosity about what is behind this door for you. With my support, you will open the door and begin the process of taking the first step through. But first, we will take a look at where you are now and where you want to go. With hope and encouragement, we will work, laugh, and play together as you gain deeper insights that will move you on a path toward health and wellness. It’s a sacred adventure! Through health coaching, you will get reacquainted and reconnected with yourself and take responsibility for your life. With my non-judgmental listening, you will discover who you are and move toward the healthiest you can be. Taking care of your body, mind and spirit is the greatest gift you can give to yourself, self-love. Let’s work together to make the connections that will open the door for you and see what lies ahead.
