For 20 years, Brenda worked on her personal development using her 4-Step Process for Personal Growth, a strategy she developed based on Kolb’s 4-step learning cycle.
In 2008, Brenda, a hardline skeptic a la Bertrand Russell, attended a Healing Touch Level 1 workshop — a non-denominational, relaxing, energy therapy that uses gentle touch to balance the entire being. She was so surprised and impressed with the results that she went on to complete all five levels of this holistic training.
Brenda also attended Level 1 of Intuitive Mind (with Catherine Awai), Vicki Slater’s Physics for Spiritual Healing & Healers I and II, and Sue Hovland’s Anatomy for Healers (Level 1).
As she honed her holistic healing skills, Brenda began to create her own visualizations and tools that were quick and easy to use and that could be adapted to her changing needs. She refined these strategies to cope with day-to-day work and life challenges and to manage anxiety and depression. These techniques also worked wonders to prevent daily stress and to eliminate stress that had accumulated over many years.
After more than 25 years of criticizing her body, Brenda also developed tools to build a strong, positive relationship with her BFF — her Body Friend Forever.
Brenda discovered that a dedicated, daily practice of using her 4-Step Process for Personal Growth, her easy visualizations and her practical tools to build a relationship with her BFF helped her to grow as a person by leaps and bounds in a span of a few years. But the change was slow enough, a little bit every day, to allow her to adjust as she grew stronger and more resilient.
Today, Brenda feels like a new person, calmer, more balanced, more confident, and more connected to her self and to the world around her. For the first time in over 25 years, she rarely experiences anxiety and depression.
It's not a miracle. It's persistence, daily effort and strategies that work for regular people with busy lives. A little bit of healing every day that adds up to big change over time. Brendalooks forward to sharing what she has learned with others.
