“A Gift!” Jolt of Joan for the week of Jan 27, 2013
Life is so precious a gift.
We become aware of some of the magnitude of this gift
when through illness, even the flu, we lose and then regain health.
Oh, how we appreciate coming back to Life.
We often, however, are unaware of a gift shrouded in a cloak of challenge.
Joan King’s life path embodies the blending of the hard and noetic sciences. At the tender age of seventeen, she stepped into life at the Dominican convent in her hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana. Eleven years later she left that religious training to become a chemist, and then received a Ph.D. in neuroscience and psychology. Her twenty-year tenure as a professor at Tufts University School of Medicine, lead her to a dynamic crossroads of personal self-discovery. She left academia. Her new found "inner knowing" ignited the writing of her first book. It became the foundation in understanding how our bodies model the teachings of our beliefs. Joan King’s blending of science and spirituality birthed her professional coaching business, Beyond-Success LLC, in 1998.
