Living the life of professional artists and business owners is a truly great life for us. We appreciate many things about this life path, and one thing I am grateful for most is the relationships we have developed along the way. Being a small creative services provider offers many unique opportunities to meet excellent people. Our clients are our inspiration, and we are blessed to work with many great teachers and leaders. Here are a few I wanted to share with you who are breaking new ground, and are doing their part to be of service to others in the world:
Innersource: Donna Eden & David Feinstein
I was fortunate enough to learn so many amazing things from the guest speakers who came to share at First Unity from around the globe when I worked there. Hearing Donna Eden & David Feinstein forever changed my life. Anyone who tells me about any physical or emotional challenges they are going through, I send them to one of two places or both: Donna Eden and Young Living essential oils. More on them later.
I want everyone to know about Donna and David, their work and to USE THE DAILY ENERGY ROUTINE. Daily. It’s in the title! It’s only 5 minutes, and it’s best to do it 2x a day, but start wherever and whenever! If you want a copy of this simple energy medicine daily protocol, I have them and give them to everyone. Fill out our contact form and let me know your address and I’ll drop one in the mail.
“Donna Eden’s body-energy work is perhaps the most brilliant, comprehensive, and effective system in the genre that I have ever seen.”—Jean Houston, Ph.D., author of The Possible Human
Also, their relationship book is off the charts – an honest look at relationships and how to use energy medicine to understand your own, as well as your partners. If you are in a relationship or not, this book will be eye-opening to how your energy system has influenced your current and past relationships, and if you are struggling in any way it is a clear guidebook for using energy medicine to improve your relationship. Buy it: The Energies of Love: Using Energy Medicine to Keep Your Relationship Thriving.
I have known Temple for quite some time now; she was my boss at First Unity Spiritual Campus and we got to know each other very well. She was always supportive of me in so many ways. As a shaman she could see my thirst for knowledge and transformation, and she has assisted me in many ways along that journey. For this I am eternally grateful. I highly recommend her latest book When Did You Die?: 8 Steps to Stop Dying Every Day and Start Waking Up. Too many people are already dead while living, and I have always so resonated with this title. It’s a book that addresses how we can choose life everyday and every moment, and it has a great cover photo by yours truly.
In many shamanic societies, if you came to a shaman or medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions. When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence? Where we have stopped dancing, singing, being enchanted by stories, or finding comfort in silence is where we have experience the loss of soul. Dancing, singing, storytelling, and silence are the four universal healing salves.
This man, Jim Dillon, is a powerhouse. He has been a part of our journey since 2009 when he put on the St Pete Yoga Festival, and we designed a website for the event. We have worked with Jim on many projects – branding, websites, illustrations – and he is one creative and driven person! We are very excited to have been a part of his most recent venture at Empower, a positive alternative to AA or other traditional residential “rehab” programs located in Clearwater, FL.
Empower’s approach to “whole-person” healing is so in alignment with our beliefs. You are not an addict or a label, and this program acknowledges the cause of addiction as pain. When we learned what this program does, and of the many success stories, we were very interested in how we could help. We’ve been on board creating their online presence and brand ever since.
Check out the website if you or anyone you know is seeking help with addiction of any sort. They understand the journey, and their Perception Therapy ® model has a 94% addiction recovery program success rate!
