how to live & lead with purpose, joy and contentment.

In order to develop wellness of being and the flow state I teach what I call the Four Pillars of Optimal Being.  For me, it is through the alignment and integration of all four aspects of ourselves that we can explore our limits and grow. Here’s where we access our agility, our capacity to adapt to change, our best performance, our deep sense of self—and thus, contentment.

  1. Physically & Sustainably Fit (healthy lifestyle: good food, sleep and regular exercise)

  2. Emotionally Sound (emotional intelligence: self-awareness, self-management)

  3. Mentally Focused (attention training, concentration, mindfulness, & meditation)

  4. Purpose & Meaning (you know why you do what you do; it makes sense)

Ask yourself "how am I leading my life?"--what responses do you hear?  How do you want to show up everyday?  How do you feel now--your energy levels, your emotional connection with others, your body, your mind...? Do you dare to take that first step now and actively pursue a sustainable lifestyle ?

"By happiness I mean here a deep sense of flourishing that arises from an exceptionally healthy mind.  This is not a mere pleasurable feeling, a fleeting emotion, or a mood but an optimal state of being".   Matthieu Ricard, French Writer & Buddhist Monk
