Move Your Body with Jill Pagano, CPT

According to Jill, endless foot tapping and arm swinging earned Jill Pagano the family nickname Shaky-Jake,– “the one who couldn’t stop moving.”  And that has proved true for the last four decades.  She is known personally for:

  • Moving in the 1980’s to Jane Fonda’s workout tapes in her childhood home’s basement.
  • Moving in college dance class despite the ballet instructor saying she had a lousy point to her foot.
  • Moving for 10 years as a professional “aerobic instructor” bounding with endless enthusiasm yet plenty of injuries.
  • Moving and studying cutting edge alternative forms like Pilates, Bartenieff Fundamentals, Yoga, Gyrokinesis, post-rehab exercise, before mainstream fitness recognized their benefit.

These moments of movement led Jill to the perfect career path of continually discovering how through movement we heal and discover ourselves. Jill Pagano has taught fitness and movement since 1985, Jill has earned multiple certifications, been featured in regional magazines and Seattle local television. Her passionate approach inspires those who say “no” to the drudgery of working out and “yes” to the pleasure of moving with mind-body-self connection.

If you currently feel like exercise is more work than wellness and hurts more than helps, join Jill for a unique approach. You’ll discover a new movement, the movement of listening to your body’s messages, and discovering what movements your body needs and wants—all to keep your BODY as youthful as YOU feel (or want to feel).

Your Sacred Wealth Code with Prema Lee Gurreri

You have a unique internal design for wealth. That formula is encoded in your soul blueprint, and like your fingerprint, it’s unlike that of any other human being. It’s called your Sacred Wealth Code, and it is written in the universal language of purpose and prosperity.

Today, we will feature the work of Prema Lee Gurreri and her book, Your Sacred Wealth Code: Unlock Your Soul Blueprint for Purpose and Prosperity (already an Amazon #1 bestseller in multiple categories).  This extraordinary new book gives you the keys!

Prema defines wealth as everything you need to fulfill your greatest purpose on Earth…and that could include money, time, freedom, security, self-expression and service to others. She says that your desire for wealth is a major key to unlocking your “high value gifts and talents”-the ones no one else can do like you–and living the most amazing life possible-the life that fulfills your ultimate purpose. Your Sacred Wealth Code can be found by tracking the path of your high value gifts and talent.

What the Bleep and other Surprises

This rumination on surprise comes courtesy of William Arntz, the creator and producer who surprised, confounded and delighted with his remarkable film What the Bleep Do We Know!? Now he teams with his wife, internationally renowned spiritual teacher and poet Deirdre Hade and award-winning photographer Endre Balogh to create something else quite special.

The (not so) Little Book of Surprises is anchored with Hade’s visionary and lyrical poetry skipping lightly about over the stunning images curated by Balogh. Each breathtaking page creates an emotional resonance with the reader…using surprise as the doorway to transformation and transcendence. The images in the book are part eye candy/part soul candy. They pile on a sensory experience that mounts the sense of surprise page by page.

All of the book’s creators began life in different fields-Arntz as a laser physicist working on “Star Wars” high energy lasers; Hade as a ballet dancer and choreographer, Balogh continues as an internationally regarded concert violinist. And through life’s mystery and surprise, they emerged as something else entirely, which makes them imminently qualified to bring forth a meditation in print on the gifts of surprise.   For more information please visit: www.BookOfSurprises.com

Author Spotlight with Cassie Premo Steele

Earth Joy Writing is a new version of The Artists’ Way for the green generation. In the years since the hugely successful Artists’ Way book hit the market, three important changes have occurred. First, our lives are much more interconnected on a daily basis through the Internet and social marketing networks. Second, we are highly aware of the grave dangers our environment faces. Third, we can sense a surge in a collective desire for community. This book addresses all these needs for readers — to live a harmonious and balanced life despite the vast changes happening around them, and to connect with others and the earth in meaningfully creative ways.

Cassie Premo Steele is the author of twelve books and audio programs on the themes of creativity, healing, and our connection to the natural world. She works as a writing coach with clients internationally.  She has a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature and Women’s Studies from Emory University in Atlanta and works as a writing coach with women from around the world.
