I chat with my homegirls, Grace Edison, Bridgit Danner, and Rachel Peters, about our life journeys on our pro healer wellness paths. In discussing our unique stories and how each of our paths has led us to our current wellness careers, we realize one thing we have in common is the passion we each feel towards holistic wellness and healing.
Grace, Bridgit, Rachel and I discuss the sense of risk that comes with change, our wellness setbacks, and what we’re most excited for in the future of our pro healer journeys. We have each experienced fear, failures, life changes and transitions on our paths. As wellness professionals who have felt strong callings to raise the consciousness of the planet and to better the overall health of humanity, we realize that each of these bumps in the road are part of the journey and are totally worthwhile.
I rap with Grace, Bridgit and Rachel about:
What you’ll get out of tuning in:
Grace Edison teaches and guides people to get out of their own way with courses that are primarily focused on re-claiming your innate power to heal and be in control of your life, your time, how you feel and how you show up in the world. Formerly a full time financial advisor and part time yoga instructor, she has expertise in the areas of health and wealth and the relationship between the two. Grace is a mom of 8 year old twins, owns a yoga studio in Northern BC Canada, runs retreats, is an up and coming Yoga Health Coach, works for Cate in admissions and is leaning into new levels of leadership.
Bridgit has always had a love of nature and a desire to serve others so her desire to study acupuncture at Chinese Medicine School felt very natural. She became a licensed acupuncturist in 2004 and a certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner in 2015. She established a multi-disciplinary wellness center in Portland, OR in 2007 as well as the organization, Women's Wellness Collaborative, in 2015. Women's Wellness Collaborative sponsors online health education events for women, and hosts a weekly podcast called Women's Wellness Radio.
Since 2001 Rachel has been supporting others through body, mind and heart-based yoga classes, trainings, mentoring and workshops. Her goal is to share how these practices have helped her shift into a more conscious, vibrant and easeful relationship to life and to support anyone who is ready to do the same. She’s been a serious practitioner and student of yoga from a young age and has thousands of hours of teacher training, immersions, workshops and retreats with phenomenal and inspiring teachers. In 2011 Rachel answered a deep calling and began her studies of Ayurveda with Cate Stillman at Yoga Healer. That same year, she began intensive studies with Paul Muller-Ortega of Blue Throat Yoga on the practice and theory of meditation and embraced a daily meditation practice that changed her life. These simultaneously launched her into a clear vision and daily approach of what she needed to do in order to thrive in the modern world. She now offers Ayurvedic Living immersions to help you to get light in your body, clear in your mind, and thrive in your life.
