“What’s your STORY?” A Jolt of Joan for the week of August 19th, 2013
What’s your STORY?”
Plato reminds us that we are beings in search of meaning.
Relentlessly we pursue meaning in past, present and future anticipated events.
Out of all of this we create a story. This is the story we live.
What is the story that you are living now?
How to detect your story?
Listen to yourself speaking to loved ones,
what do you say about what yourself and what is going on in your life?
Each time you repeat your story to yourself and others
you strengthen the neural connections that underlie the story.
It becomes your default way of seeing, feeling, touching and knowing your self and your world.
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.
