About Eileen:
I’ve overcome obstacles in areas of my life… After battling colitis for many years, I found a holistic approach to healing myself that worked wonderfully together with my medical care. My participation in modalities incorporating positive thinking, affirmations, relaxation breathing, exercise and stretching were instrumental to my conquering colitis and became part of my Moving Meditation® Fitness audio program.

16 years ago, I was involved in a pedestrian accident in which my right foot was run over by a van, which left me with five breaks in a bone in my foot. During my recovery I was asked by a local physician to help write a curriculum for a new stress-reduction program he was developing. He encouraged me to read John Kabot-Zinn’s Full Catastrophe Living” and Herbert Benson’s “The Relaxation Response”, which turned my negative attitude towards recovery around and were catalysts to my healing and I was able to teach Hatha yoga for this course within a few months.

I was dealing with a severely broken foot, which had huge amounts of tissue damage. During this time of healing, with my prognosis unknown,I decided to become a trained bio-feedback therapist as well as work in that field in order to have career “back-up” because of my unknown prognosis.

The mind-body connection, the autogenic and relaxation training plus counseling techniques contributed significantly to my own healing; a powerful reinforcement of the power of the mind-body connection. I was also greatly impacted during this time by professional training at the Omega Institute with Dr. Kabat-Zinn, who founded the Center for Mindfulness Based Stress-Reduction Programs at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. The training was pivotal in integrating all the work I was doing and clarified my goal to be trained as a professional coach. I then went on to the Corporate Coach University, a branch of Coach U and recognized by the International Coach Federation.

Since then I have been and continue to be inspired by the impact people can have on their lives when they choose to manage and reduce stress. I am honored to be a part of that process in anyway that I can.

This is part of an inspirational-motivational poem collection used in a mindfulness based stress reduction training I attended at Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY. (circa 1995) that Dr. Jon Kabat Zinn headed up.

I find them   “food for thought” and comforting in times of uncertainty.   Rereading them and typing for this blog was a wonderful thing for me to do while Hurricane Irene is barreling up the eastern seaboard, headed for NYC and Long Island, where I live.  Uncertainty about evacuation and potential damage is difficult.  I’ve been in “Hurricane Bootcamp” with Mom in Florida during the severe/tornado before Katrina .  Now the nursing home that she resides in in Long Beach, NY may be evacuated.

 

 The Journey

One day you finally knew

what you had to do, and began,

though the voices around tou kept shouting their bad advice-

though the whole house

began to tremble

and you felt the old tug at your ankles.

“Mend my life!”

each voice cried.

But you didn’t stop.

You knew what you had to do,

though the wind pried

with its stiff fingers

at the very foundations,

though their meloncholy was terrible.

It was already late

enough, and a wild night,

and the road full of fallen branches and stones.

but little by little,

as you left their voices behind,

the stars began to burn through the sheets of clouds,

and there was a new voice

which you slowly recognized as your own,

that kept you company

as you strode deeper and deeper

into the world,

determined to do

the only thing you could do-

determined to save

the only life you could save

-Mary Oliver, from Dreamwork

 

 

LOST

 

Stand Still.  The trees ahead and the bushes beside you

Are not lost.  Wherever you are is called Here,

And you must treat it as a powerful stranger,

Must ask permission to know it and be known.

The fprest breathes.  Listen.  It answers,

I have made this place around you,

If you leave it you may come back again, saying Here.

No two trees are the same to Raven.

No two branches are the same to Wren.

If what a tree or bush does is lost on you,

You are surely lost.  Stand still.  The forest knows

Where you are.  You must let it find you.

Arrangement by David Wagner

Cited in The Heart Aroused, by David Whyte

The Guest House

 

This being human is a guest-house

Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,

some momentary awareness comes

as an unexpected visiator.

Welcome and entertain them all!

Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,

who violently sweep your house

empty of its furniture.

Still, treat each guest honorably.

He may be clearing you

 out for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,

meet them at the door, laughing,

and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,

because each has been sent

 as a guide from beyond

-Say I Am You poems of Rumi

Translated by John Moyne and Coleman Barks

Maypop 1994

Love After Love

 

The time will come

when, with elation,

you will greet ypurself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror,

and each will smile at the other’s welcome

and say, sit here.  Eat.

You will love again the stranger who was yourself.

Give wine.  Give bread.  Give back your heart

to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you have ignored

for another, who knows you by heart.

Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desparate notes,

peel your own image from the mirror.

Sit.  Fest on your life.

-Derek Walcott

THE SUMMER DAY

 

Who made the world?

Who made the swan, and the black bear?

Who made the grasshopper?

This grasshopper I mean-

the one who has flung herself out of the grass,

the one who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down-

who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes.

Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.

Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.

I don’t know exactly what a prayer is.

I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down

into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,

how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,

which is what I’ve been doing all day.

Tell me, what is it you plan to do

with your one wild and precious life?

From: The House of Light  – by Mary Oliver

WILD GEESE

 

You do not have to be good.

You do not have to walk on your knees

for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body

love what it loves.

Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mione.

Meanwhile the world goes on.

Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebblesof the rain are moving across the landscapes,

over the prairies and the deep trees,

the mountains and the rivers.

Meanwhile, the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,

are heading home again.

Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,

the world offers itself to your imagination,

calls you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting-

over and over announcing your place in the family of things.

From: Collected Poems -by Mary Oliver

 

Until one is committed there is always hesitancy,

the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.

concerning all acts of initiative and creation,

there is one elementary truth,

the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans; the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence

moves too.

All sorts of things occur to help that would never otherwise have occurred.

A whole stream of events issues from the decision,

raising to one’s favor all manner of unforeseen accidents and meetings

and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would come his way.

Whatever you do or dream you can, begin it.

Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.

Goethe
