“…we are already connected to this web of power and vitality that weaves together all things. Recognizing this, we then get to ask the exciting question of, what shall I do with all this power, all this life force, all this possibility that is me?” —Lydia Russell-McCade

I once had a turbulent brain.

Then I returned to college at the age of fifty-three to study the transformative effects of poetry. Simultaneously enrolled in a coaching accreditation program, I was gratefully astounded by my own transformation as I immersed myself in the integrated studies of mindfulness, intention and perspective, linguistic awareness, and the ground-breaking scientific breakthroughs and collaborations in neurobiology and psychology.

I had found calm where confusion, reaction, and habit once reigned. This intensely personal and pivotal experience led me to what I do today—as a coach, writer, and advocate of calm in the face of transitions, I share the tools and practices that bring about the spirited calm of clarity, compassion, and choice.

This sharing has given me the gift of witnessing the resiliency of the human spirit. There is nothing, nothing better than sitting in wholehearted silence, or sharing a great belly laugh in the face of profound insights and dynamic actions. It is with deep gratitude that I say thank you to all who have allowed me to be present during your transformation—the ripple effect of your work and commitment is changing the world.

We cannot change the world by a new plan, project, or idea.
We cannot even change other people by our convictions, stories, advice and proposals,
but we can offer a space where people are encouraged to disarm themselves,
lay aside their occupations and preoccupations and listen with attention and care
to the voices speaking in their own center.
—Henri Nouwen
