Resilience — What it Means to Me

Meningioma. Ever hear of it? Know someone who has it?
I am a trained Life/Wellness Coach and also have this condition.

Build resiliency and support others with meningioma.Have you been diagnosed with a serious illness? I want to share ways to address the trauma, shock, and overwhelming anxiety involved with a serious diagnosis and ways to offer empowerment and support.

I am designing a coaching program for those people diagnosed with meningioma and am asking for input. The coaching program I am working on is a combination of numerous international empowering and catalytic resources incorporating the Six Dimensions of Wellness and the Wheel of Wellness. I'm interested in working with people around the globe in support groups that have meningioma and are challenged by the reality involved.

I have had 2 surgeries to remove my tumor and am currently recovering from facial palsy, double vision and changes that are requiring rehabilitation at a center twice a week. I have the greatest empathy beyond my training to be able to present ways to really reach deep — accessing an individual’s inner strength and facilitate the vulnerabilities into tools of resiliency.

There will be no charge for this program; with members meeting one to three times a month. At the beginning of the month, the topic of focus is sent out as are resources and transformation processes. There are worksheets and access to more tools and resources with each month’s focus.  

The monthly focuses I am contemplating and currently designing are stress management, resiliency, mindfulness, neuroplasticity, nutrition, heart congruence, the interconnection between the 3 brains, the heart, brain and the gut, becoming a witness, breathing, and holistic nourishment. I have many more ideas which I’m formulating into introductory information packets with accompanying coaching questions used in the group. My webinar plans are being designed and I will be ready to share what I’m doing in a follow-up article. I am also contacting global speakers to ask that they appear as a guest speaker periodically.

I am assembling all my training and life experiences, which have empowered me and built my resiliency to support others with the condition of meningioma. I plan to give access to other people as time goes on. I would appreciate any suggestions or direction to be better prepared.
