What Changes Do You Want To Keep?

Being a coaching school, talking about change goes with the territory…it’s what we do best! And we know that no matter how things may seem at the present time (whether we are talking personally or globally), we can count on our current circumstances changing. What’s important to underline though is that we can respond (with awareness) to our current circumstances and make choices to support the most positive outcomes available to us. Over the past year, many people have experienced lockdown, quarantine and/or social isolation…

Stop, Start, Continue

Well, here we are in 2021! We know it continues to be a strange and difficult time in the world at large, and when the clock turned midnight on New Year’s Eve it didn’t magically turn right-side up. It will take our fortitude and resilience to keep moving forward and make positive changes in both our lives, and the world. We think a simple process of identifying what you would like to “stop, start, and change” this year can be a tremendous help, and make…

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:…

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…

Transparency

  Linda has been thinking about something she heard years ago: that there are no secrets. Do you think that’s true? It’s an interesting question to ponder…    If there really were no secrets in this world, there would be no need to manipulate; people simply wouldn’t do it because the truth/facts would be in front of everyone and we would have better, open, direct communication. Our energy could then go to solving problems and creating solutions to the issues we face. “Backroom deals” would be…

Experiencing Opposition

    Our Founder and CEO Dr. Linda Bark remembers seeing a quote on a bumper sticker many years ago: “All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” -Arthur Schopenhauer. It is a quote that has stuck with her ever since; it helps whenever she feels discouraged about what is happening in the world.   When Linda was living in Nevada (also many years ago!), she remembers great ideas being implemented…

InTERdependence Day: How Will You Celebrate?

      Here in the United States, people all over the country will soon be celebrating Independence Day on July 4th. Americans are often known for their independence, creative and cutting edge work, individuality, individual rights, and individual responsibilities…so it seems natural that we would have a big celebration to commemorate the Declaration of Independence as a nation back in 1776.   But what about inTERdependence? When traveling abroad, Dr. Linda Bark has noticed other cultures are more likely to think from a community…

A Year Since the Election

It’s hard to imagine a year has gone by since the election here in the United States. It’s been called a disruptive election; an election that would no doubt shake things up. Was the election part of our world paradigm changing? Here are some coaching questions we hope you find helpful: What have you noticed going on in the world since this election? What have you learned from this election? What would you like to change, and what is one small easy next step toward…

Where in the World is Linda?

Dr. Linda Bark is just getting home from the Preeti Rao Weljii Center in India. Preeti Rao is the first healthand wellness coach training company in India, and Linda was very excited to be teaching there! Her trip was incredible, and she made some wonderful connections during her two week visit. She spoke at the Weljii Dialogs for dignitaries and others in India and said “It was an extraordinary experience!” Preeti Rao gave Linda a going away party after the Weljii coach training. It is a…
