Reclaim Your Personal Power Through 6 Body Wisdom Areas!

Author, teacher, and CHI FOR YOURSELF guest Suzanne Scurlock-Durana is back with an invitation to:

Reclaim your personal power through 6 body wisdom areas

Join [FREE virtual event] w/leading body awareness expert

How would it feel to be truly comfortable and at ease in your own skin? To be able to release the residue of traumas and long-held blocks that may be highjacking your joy, creativity, and vitality?

The key to experiencing this powerful shift lies in discovering how to reconnect with the deep wisdom of your body.

DoIng that can be challenging when influences from our culture, education, childhood and the past cause us to “live” in our heads or only in part of our bodies –– misreading or unaware of the signals and knowledge we’re receiving from the rest of our system.

On Tuesday, September 19, you can start to expand into your full body wisdom when you join leading conscious awareness expert Suzanne Scurlock-Durana for Reclaiming Your Body’s Innate Guidance System: How to Listen to Your Bones and 5 More Wisdom Areas to Heal Trauma & Increase Intuition.

Registration for this virtual event is free. Reserve your space now: https://shiftnetwork.isrefer.com/go/gsJK/a17256/



When you join this free mini-workshop, you’ll discover:

Why you likely have only one or two body wisdom centers open right now — and how that undermines your access to the full spectrum of intelligence and guidance waiting within you

  • Why it’s critical to inhabit the back of your heart as much as the front
  • How your gut holds the key to your security… and how to use its wisdom correctly to know when your next step is the right one
  • How the intelligence of your bones holds the master key for deep, nourishing meditations
  • A simple practice to get quick clarity on the biggest question in your life right now

Suzanne’s focus and passion is teaching you how to draw from the power in your body wisdom areas so you can be more present, healthy, wise and joyful.


If you’ve been looking for an exciting, experiential approach to awakening, healing and living your life with true vitality, you’ll want to join Suzanne for this fascinating event!

RSVP for free here: https://shiftnetwork.isrefer.com/go/gsJK/a17256/


P.S. During Reclaiming Your Body’s Innate Guidance System, you’ll discover how to attune to your body’s wisdom areas to dissolve stress, pain and overwhelm — and liberate your intuition, wisdom, personal power, and joy!

This event is free but requires registration. RSVP here: https://shiftnetwork.isrefer.com/go/gsJK/a17256/

A downloadable recording will be provided later to all who register, whether or not you listen to the scheduled event.

A Great Response to First Responders

police car pictureYour response to Capt. Dan Willis’ interview on CHI FOR YOURSELF last week was great to see! Dan talked about the challenges that first responders face and how they can be helped to do their very important jobs. I thought it was great to hear that inner exploration is being used as a healing tool, and that Spirit is taking its place in the process.


Here are some of the talking points from the show:

  • just who are the First Responders?
  • suicide as a growing problem among police officers
  • how Dan got started helping other First Responders
  • Dan’s realization that he was in trouble
  • red flags that could indicate PTSD
  • the lack of this type of training for First Responders
  • a frightening story about a fellow officer
  • personalities that might be more susceptible to PTSD
  • how families can be of help

The Linda Carroll/CHI FOR YOURSELF interview was well-attended- thanks to all who were there. Our subject was love (and Linda’s book Love Cycles) Love is a topic (and definition!) that could be discussed for hours. This article from Conscious Life News asks the dual questions:


What Exactly is Love? And How Do We Learn to Love?
Much is written about love. Countless songs have love as the main theme and thousands of movies include love and romance as the underlying premise. Religions talk about love and kindness, battles have been fought over love and it seems almost everything we do, say and feel, has undertones of love intertwined throughout. When it comes to describing love it can be very difficult to articulate. Continue reading..

Riding the Love Cycles Toward Genuine Living

picture of Linda CarrollI hope you enjoyed last week’s CHI FOR YOURSELF interview with couples therapist Linda Carroll, author of Love Cycles: The Five Essential Stages of Lasting Love. Linda says that love’s more challenging stages are part of genuine intimacy, rather than signs of its demise. In fact, Carroll goes as far to say that courageously moving through what comes after the rapturous initial Merge stage is the only way we can get to an authentic intimate relationship. Here are some talking points from the show:

  • Can couples beat the odds and stay in the initial state of bliss?din
  • Is there a point where we know that the relationship just isn’t worth it anymore?
  • Red flags that pop up at the start of a relationship
  • The importance of sex in a relationship
  • How intimacy depends on the ability to be separate
  • Something for couples to remember at the beginning of their time together
