“Move beyond FEAR!” A Jolt of Joan for the week of July 17, 2013
Fear stops most of us, at one time or another,
from taking advantage of an opportunity to grow and be more.
Usually this occurs when we are seeking to expand the view that we have of ourselves,
our world and/or the level of our consciousness.
Fear attempts to protect us.
Rather than berating ourselves we should recognize
that the old neural pathways in the brain do not yet recognize
this new reality and attempts to bring us back
to the safety of the old ways of thinking and being.
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.
