  • 7 Steps to Reverse or Prevent Diabesity

    Diabesity is a condition in which too much belly fat leads a person to symptoms ranging from mild blood sugar imbalance to full blown diabetes. Whether you have a little extra weight around the middle, insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes, the root cause of ALL these conditions are the same - problems with our diet, lifestyle and exposure to environmental toxins. Most treatments focus on the downstream symptoms (elevated levels of glucose, cholesterol, blood pressure, triglycerides) and never get to WHY your levels are too high and how to change it. The good news is all of this can be reversed. Learn how to work with your doctor to help restore your body to health.
  • A Healing Path to a More Creative Life

    To achieve or maintain a sustainable, thriving creative practice, you will experience a “crooked path”. Many of us have suffered so many disappointments and difficulties along the way —both small and large— that we are left with what we call a “damaged heart” or “inner child” that needs repair. This damaged part of us can generate experiences that range from simple feelings of burn out to a total collapse of productivity. In extreme cases, various forms of self-sabotage can emerge that impact our overall well-being. We may have struggled for years to overcome criticisms, or even outright assaults, to our creative identity, efforts, and outcomes. We may yearn for the significant portion of our artistic desire, inner strength, and creative potency that appears to have been lost or never found. The journey to restore your Creative Potential will mend the “Broken Artist” that dwells inside you. You will renew your hopes and dreams, as well as engage your challenges and shortcomings. It is an inner journey of earnest self-discovery, where you must face fearlessly the heroic tests you find there. Fortunately, there is a holistic process —Holistic Creativity— to follow that will help you heal your Heart, Soul, Mind, and Body and restore you to wholeness. If you undertake this transformational journey with devotion and discipline, you can repair and restore the inner wellspring that fuels your artistic capabilities. Expand your current horizons and reach amazing new possibilities! This live, highly interactive, small-sized class provides ample opportunity for you to receive personalized attention, while learning to engage the universal principles of healing that impact all creative people.
