Psychoneuroimmunology caught my attention in 1990. Yes, we are what we put into our bodies, be it food, thoughts, medications or beliefs! I was very fortunate to find Dr. Susan Taylor's Meditation Specialists training and to be certified in 2006.
While working in the hospital milieu my CMS training helped maintain my balance as a Charge Nurse when dealing with the high anxiety and pain of patients in the Urgent Care and Emergency Room. I shared with other health care workers my knowledge of meditation and relaxation and coached Focused Awareness, not only to improve patient outcomes, but also to help my colleagues care for themselves and their families. The truth is that stress is the undeniable killer contributing to our morbidity and mortality.
After 30 years in the acute hospital setting, I have recently retired and am practicing and coaching in the community environment. First and foremost, I believe one must be a visible example embracing a balanced healthy lifestyle of mind, body and spirit. Teaching often times can be subtle by being a consistent example and answering questions or as organized as facilitating a class.
With Focused Awareness at the core of one's life, everyday living can become a Moving Meditation. A barefoot walk in the park to feel the cool green grass; listening to a bird sing and hearing another singing in reply; growing an organic garden then cooking and sharing healthy food and water with the knowledge and love that it will be beneficial for one's digestion and cells; listening to music, dancing or chanting to express oneself; all are Moving Mediations that lead towards beneficial health.
My pilgrimages in my Journey to empower myself through awareness by seeking continuing knowledge in meditation and beneficial health has taken me to other cultures and continents. I have found that Love, Forgiveness, Focus and Breath are the common elements that link us together towards healthier lives.
I spend part of my life in the Southwest and in Hawaii. In Hawaii, the true meaning of Aloha is ALO: the presence of the Divine Source is with us, and HA: Breath of Life. To look directly into someone's eyes and sincerely say ALOHA is truly an expression of caring and love. We also say E Komo Mai: You are most welcomed into this place to share time together.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding Focused Awareness classes or Moving Meditations.
My cellphone number is (408) 393-5468. I am also on Facebook and Linkdn. Aloha!
