@Mridu  I have always been a fitness person.  Always running or biking, walking.  Had my family grown up and left my husband after 32 years.  There was nothing left when the kids left home.  Throughout raising the boys I was always doing something, walking, biking, teaching soccer, etc.  The 30 years I accumulated many books on Astrology, Tarot, Intuition, Energy Medicine, The Conscious Mind, etc. Reading about The Art of Happiness from the Dalai Lama.  And happiness with human behavior always fascinated me.  Having an autistic son that is Asperger's, high functioning brought much of this out of me.   The divorce was the final straw that broke the camels back.  It was so dreadful that he used us so bad, I was very deep in despair.  I hyperventilated from crying so much I felt myself pass out.  "a voice told me I could not leave the world yet, there are many people that want to hear what I have to say" I woke up excited to be alive and figure out what message I had. 

I searched over the years for a way to learn martial arts or something that I could teach since becoming disabled.  Beginning in the recovery area helped me so much to build my strength, stamina and energy.  I decided to teach it.  Training online took discipline and many hours of practice.  

In Chinese Medicine we teach Taoist, Buddhist way of life.  The body is a bowl of rice being prepared.  We must let the steam rise and it has to be eliminated.  The physical aspects are so interesting.  Press here and the liver works better.  Press there and the kidneys will be massaged/bladder.  During Winter is the best time to work with the kidneys and bladder because we sit and lay more.  The ending of a calender year, 365 days of a life needs to be cleansed.  Sorrow and grief need to be processed as with all emotions that cause turbidity as in a shaken snow globe.  

Energy vibrations are so fascinating also.  To think how the movements of the universe, the planets and moons and sun that never stop are always moving and that is energy.  This in addition to the force pull it takes to move them.  That spark, Wayne Dyer speaks of that is in each of us begins there.  Sorry getting carried away. 

Chinese Medicine is 5000 years old.  This has always been done and continues to be done.  My Grand Master Teacher live a monastic life from 16 to 22.  Then was told to go West now and teach it in a way they understand.  I love hearing his stories.  He is creating a way for us to learn and understand the lessons in the Western language the best that can be.  Never done before. 

The secrets that were kept from people for so long is now out of the bag and only taught by lineage and certified teachers.   I have learned what movements will benefit you the best in what season to match the organ and the body aspects and life aspects that each season entails.  This is taught in a class.  

You can look it all up. Or learn from a "good" teacher.    ME.  lol. 

I teach sit, stand, move.  It is the best way to set the mindfulness in motion, keep the chi (energy) moving throughout the body systems.  Being able to move the blood from the top to the bottom of the body takes movement.  If not we all would lose our legs all together.  

Learning to breathe, to be mindful and conscious in every second of the day is where we need to be.  Getting caught up in the mundane living creates stagnant energy, and then turbidity as drama and life happens.  It happens to us then and blocks any type of healing that needs to be processed. 

Humans bodies are meant to work/function regularly, clearing, cleansing, strengthening, breathing, all the time.  Sleeping in order for our cells to regenerate.  One Qigong is done 7 years, the body will have done a total transformation to the memory of movement.  

In 3 days every cell in our body is replaced.  It is important then to keep the systems moving and working the best possible.  We are all actually liquid steam with blood moving around space.  Our eyes can only see very minimal.  The people with much better sight see the steam in colors.  Imagine, walking around seeing only steam entities of color moving around connected by blurring together or small streamers going back and forth. Quantum Physics, Awesome.

Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.  lol.  If you have questions feel free to ask any.  Love to share.  

I hope I didn't lose anyone or overwrite.  I do love to write.  

Thank you so much!  And no, you didn't overwrite 🙂

Most have been 4 weeks long and ~2-3 hours per session.  I start with an introduction to Mindfulness workshop, then do one on stress and anxiety, one on Loving-Kindness and Gratitude and close it out with one that ties it all together and is designed to help each participant establish a regular practice designed specifically for them.

Interesting fact--when we attempt to "multitask" our average IQ temporarily drops by 10 points.  In comparison, someone under the influence of pot only experiences a drop of 5 points.  So when we try to do too many things at once, we are literally less efficient than someone high.  

Hi Steve and all! Great thread here; right up my alley as I sit in admiration wanting to Teach in Healthcare; more later...I am wondering if we could start a Corporate Subgroup, just sayin' We were kicking around different ideas with Sean today! I definitely want consult with y'all! 

In any case, Steve, funny thing about "Multitasking", In Daniel Goleman & Dr. Richard Davidson's 
Book,  Altered Traits, they say:

"Attention tasks don't really go on in parallel, as 'multitasking implies, instead they demand rapid switching from one thing to the other. And following every such switch, when our attention returns to the original task, its strength has been appreciably diminished. It can take several minutes to ramp up once again to full concentration". Thus, the ending result is: "the harm spills over into the rest of life"!  (Pg. 137)

I am super excited that Dr. Richard Davidson is with us next month! I am reading their book now, basically a lot of Scientific explanations, which I love!

I wish all the Corporate Teachers could have a Board meeting; I am enlisting your assistance in how y'all got your Corporate Clients; I am seeking marketing tips; I have approached a few local cities and as well as one Healthcare facility in McKinney, TX...though I have briefly interviewed one ER RN Supervisor & Corporate does want to be transparent when this Supervisor tells me, "Burnout is a major issue"! so I am open to emails, Zoom meetings, or whatever it takes, Folks....feel free to email me too, at :FinestCoaching524@gmail.com.

P. S. I always type in purple for a very good reason; I don't know why no one else does; guess it's the Creative Artistic Creative Photographer in me!:)

So, my corporate compadres, I am open to ideas; this is not as time to be shy either.:)

A Different Perspective:

In marketing Mindfulness programs in Texas, I am informed by another Certificate holder here, that using the Term, Mindfulness, apparently is a turn off locally.  So in presenting a Mindfulness Proposal to a local Fire Dept. I decided to call my Program, an IFA, to give it a catchy anacronym,  an Intentional Focused Awareness program instead; it's not really lying, cause the Focused Awareness would still be defined the same definition, + the exercise part of the program would result in Mindful Meditation-i just decided to approach it from a different angle, so in essence, Same, yet Different:)
