Day 13 – following “My Personal Call to Greatness!”
Listen to Joan read the poem “Lost” by David Wagoner and her reflections
Walking the roads of our canyon, once again, I am struck by the beauty of life that surrounds me. The hillsides of green, the valleys, the mountains behind the hills, the trees, the rocks, the flowing water – how differently I see them now.
I am reminde of the words of Henry David Thoreau
“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
I saw light and beauty
color and vitality
and I think
love is eternal.
In this, I rejoice!
Today, rejoice with me! Celebrate the vitality of life! Open to its fullness!
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.
