Bridging Science and Wisdom for Impact
Over 28 years ago I developed a fascination with exploring how to improve quality of life and performance. My curiosity led me down many paths from sports therapy and conditioning, to nutrition and positive psychology, all pointing to promising techniques and strategies for optimal living. In 2011, experiencing severe burnout and on the edge of a nervous breakdown, I was struck with a new reality:
Working on ourselves or our “problems” isn’t helpful.
There is a deeper reality within us that holds vitality, and clarity for us no matter what our life circumstances.
When our inner world of vitality is understood, we can go for what we want without the stress, overwhelm and burnout we have innocently acquired. Sound too good or even woo woo? What I have discovered over the past 25 years is that
science can validate what we can measure but can’t imagine the true capacities within us that aren’t measurable yet.
And it’s on this playground of pure possibility that life truly begins.
This is my joy; to help individuals, couples and organizations genuinely realize that what they see as possibility for themselves is only a reflection of where they are currently looking.
And when we can see from other vantage points, connect with our vitality, we reveal capacities within that allow us to be at home with ourselves, bring our best to each day and have more life in our living.
