“The space between…” A Jolt of Joan for the week of August 5, 2013
Sometimes the ordinariness of life’s façade drops away. In this space revealed behind the scenes, between the words, life looms large. In this space we seem to touch the essence of it all. Here we experience life directly and recognize the energy of pure existence. In the moment we sense all moments. How rare this tasting of the essence of life,
yet how important to visit this and
recharge the place deep within us from which all creativity emerges.
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.
