Announcing My Newest Endeavor!
Since beginning my professional coach training, I have been developing an idea for group coaching. I'm excited and honored to announce its "Grand Opening!"
You'll notice an extra page nestled under the Health & Wellness tab called AlohaConnection (click here to be magically placed there) as well as a link on the home page.
As you'll see from the story on the AlohaConnection page, this comes from a desire to share the gift of peaceful self-contentment with women. I've long observed our struggle to live stories that have deceitfully told us we will feel happy and fulfilled if we are attractive and slim, have lots of money and a fancy car, have the perfect mate and perfect children, have an advanced degree and a prestigious career, are outgoing yet demure, caring yet independent, intelligent and unique, and are generally flawless. After twenty years of observing people in general and women specifically, it's safe to say this is hogwash. Duh.
To commence the rewriting of my story I have; poured over research and books aimed at emotional and cognitive awareness, taken (still taking) classes on the same topics along with learning how to share it with others, adhered to the lessons in the classes and books, started and maintained a meditation practice, joined a support group, worked with therapists and coaches, found the courage to grieve through watching a TV show, repaired a damaged friendship, leaned on my father, connected with my children, learned invaluable lessons about myself through people that have come and gone, and continue to learn even more, every day, from the people that are in my life right now. Along the way, I persevered because I trusted in the process of what I was learning and practicing and I had the unconditional support and compassion needed to try new things and be imperfect.
Now I want to share these strategies, and those still to come, with as many women as I can. By learning what it means to be present, taking responsibility for one's own destiny, and recognizing our shared human experience through a compassionate interest in others, we can traverse life in a more peaceful, fulfilling way.
Please share this opportunity with any women in your life who are ready to learn what it means to be present and wish to write their own story.
It is time we steered by the stars, not by the lights of each passing ship.
