Walking a new talk

—Bernie Siegel, M.D.

Emerging full-force with a vision for life and purpose that has lit me up and called me to serve in much bigger ways than I ever planned, I am thrilled to be celebrating new beginnings.

Next month, I will be collaborating on a new project with my colleague Catherine Russell as “wellness revolutionaries,” sharing empowering approaches to optimal LIVING.

Using insights and knowledge gained from our own health journeys in combination with our training from leading hospitals’ mind-body programs, we are offering a new seminar series called “Inspired Wellness.”  The three-part series is designed to help relax your mind, open your heart and heal your body.

Whether you want to prevent illness or are dealing with stress, anxiety, worry, fear or a chronic health condition, we are offering three components to accelerate your journey to vibrant health:

 1.    Group Support for mind body approaches, which studies show can improve longevity and quality of life.

2.   Emotional Release Techniques for clearing blockages that can contribute to illness or disease.

3.    A Mental Diet of thoughts, beliefs and empowering words for creating a mindset for greater health.

At the forefront is our strong belief that we heal and thrive best in connection, particularly when led by others who model or can help us hold a vision for great health.

The “Inspired Wellness” three-part seminar will be held three consecutive Thursday evenings (Oct.9, Oct. 16 and Oct. 23), 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Buddhaful Souls Yoga Studio in Rowley, Mass.   Registration is done through the yoga studio by clicking here.

To receive a flyer with more information, please email GailJones@claimyourworthiness.com.

The seminar is focused on the mind, body, and spiritual components of healthy living versus disease or illness.

Like me, Catherine walked through a journey back to health.  She has recovered from early stage breast cancer and had a spontaneous healing from end stage metastatic cancer 14 years ago.  The amazing insights she has gained have helped hundreds reclaim life in new ways.  Catherine offers a profound approach to energy work where she helps clients create shifts into greater health.  She has taught at Tufts Medical School and has extensive training from some of the best mind-body programs, including U Mass Medical’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program for Health Professionals with Jon Kabat-Zinn and Barbara Brennan’s School of Healing.  You can learn more about Catherine at www.RadiantVision.com.

In addition to my 20-plus years coaching clients on creating new mindsets and teaching workshops (www.SupportMatters.com), I also will share knowledge gained from my three-month participation in The Mind Body Program for Cancer at Massachusetts General Hospital.

More details will follow in subsequent blogs, where we will be offering tips on living in wellness.

Wishing you all the excitement that comes with new beginnings—particularly at this gloriously vibrant time of year.




1.   I allow myself to believe in the ability to create my own wellness.

2.   I allow myself to thrive with the support of like-minded others.

3.    I allow myself to expand into new possibilities in all areas of my life.

 Our spontaneous trip (pictured above, Gail to the left/Catherine to the right) to see the amazing sunflowers at Colby Farm in Newbury, Mass., is a reminder of the field of joyful possibilities available to us all.
