How Do You Want to Use Your Resources?

  As the month of March ushers in, all we can think about here at Wisdom of the Whole is “marching forward!”; the dead of winter is now officially over, and we can come out of hibernation! When we start “marching forward” though, it’s easy to become overwhelmed; there are so many choices to make, and things we could do. Many people struggle with how to best use their personal resources because in this day and age, when many outer structures are crumbling or changing,…

Panchakarma: Linda’s Experience

As some of you know, Dr. Linda Bark was in Hyderabad, India, for Panchakarma, until late November 2019. The Raju Panchakarma Health Center is in Hyderabad south India. It is run by 13th generation Ayurvedic physicians…it’s the “real deal!” The fathers and mothers in the family line prepare some of the medicines for their children to give when they become physicians…because some preparations can take 50 years before they are ready to administer! Here was Linda’s schedule for a typical day at the health center:…

A New Year, A New Decade

  Congratulations! We are not only at the start of a brand new year, but a new decade! It’s quite something to think about…being in the year “2020” seems monumental! We’re curious, did 2019 end the way you wanted it to? It’s useful to reflect on the past year, and the past decade, to clearly see where you want to go now. (ie. We aren’t going to visit the past and stay there, but use the information to gain new awareness and move forward.)  …

Interdependence

    Everyone here in the United States will soon be celebrating Independence Day. We often celebrate with parties, picnics, great food, and fireworks. Then, on July 5th, Dr. Linda Bark likes to celebrate what she calls “Interdependence Day”; a day to celebrate connection, collaboration, and working together to form the whole. To be clear, it’s not about celebrating independence OR interdependence, but about coming from an integral perspective and celebrating both. As social beings, we have a desire to connect with each other, make…

Transitions

    Many people are in the midst of transformation right now, both in their personal and professional lives. This transition from the “old” to the “new” can find us smack-dab in “the gap”; the place where the “new” hasn’t landed yet, and we’ve come untethered from the “old.”   If you are currently in “the gap” right now, consider these coaching questions: Are you comfortable in “the gap”? Do you try to avoid it at all costs? Do you jump right over it? Do…

Using Intuition for Your 2019 Vision

  We talk about intuition in our coach training courses; how we all have the ability to tune into our inner knowing, and that we can do this in all sorts of ways. Some of our students get a “gut instinct” and they just know the truth, some see pictures/images in their mind’s eye, some “just know” when they do muscle testing, or when all the hairs on their arms stand on end. Some receive intuitive guidance through dreams or meditation and then they are…
