Donna R. Wood
I work with people who want to go beyond simple self-care, and help you to gain clarity, make choices, build resilience and navigate your life. I believe in balance of wholeness, commitment to self, and the courage to live the whole human experience.
Happiness is a state of being, in spite of the struggles and challenges that we encounter in life. To experience happiness is to have experiential knowledge of sorrow, loss, and heartache; to embrace the flow of life.
I specialize in group coaching, online courses, and multi-day retreats; on and off-line. The group dynamic allows for the suspension of judgment (of ourselves and others); the redirection and letting go of our past perceptions and interpretations; the ability to be fully present; the enhancement of reception/receiving; the engagement of mind, body, and soul; and the embodiment of the expression of wholeness.
Are you ready, willing, and able to go beyond simple self-care and start building the framework for the life you want to live, instead of accepting the one you have? If you answered a resounding YES! to that question, then you are in the right place!Donna R. Wood is a certified Existential Well-Being Coach, author, and social theorist.
