“The KEY to…!” A Jolt of Joan for the week of August 11, 2013
“A KEY to…!”
Imagine you have access to a “key” that unlocks something you want.
It could be a state of mind, such as serenity or resiliency or
an insight about resolving a difficult situation.
To find the key we must look for it.
Often it is just out of reach of ordinary consciousness.
We must reach out beyond our ordinariness to grab hold of it.
How? First withdraw attention from any lack of what we seek.
We must know the key can be found within ourselves.
Others might help point the way to find this elusive key.
This key may exist within the situation we seek to resolve.
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.
