If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.
~ Masaru Emoto
We are living in a historical time of immense change and challenge, globally and locally. This, compounds the challenges and stress of our daily lives and impacts our life, heart, and nervous system on an ongoing basis. How can we stay grounded, even calm, as we navigate these sometimes stormy waters? How can continue to care for our families, tend our work, engage in our communities, and nourish our own spirit?
My invitation is to learn to create calm within yourself. To relax your nervous system and body and connect with your heart's knowing (presence) which helps you to more skillfully navigate these times and create the impact you desire from a place of embodied presence and attunement.
This course is for you if...
• you are experiencing anxiety or stress
• you are feeling stuck in your mind, trying to figure things out
• your inner critic is working overtime
• you are feeling you're not enough
• you are feeling overwhelmed
• you would like to be able to access your internal sense of calm and safety
• you would like to move from overwhelm, reactivity, or inactivity to being able to show up with a calm, compassionate, grounding presence in your life and profession
• you'd like to cultivate a sense of awareness and balance that supports your ability to make conscious choices
• you're ready to engage in heart-centered transformation to increase your vibrancy and resilience
• you'd like to learn how to design nourishing self-care practices and routines that enhance your calm
This might not be for you if...
• You aren't ready to take action and make some changes in your life
• You aren't ready to commit yourself to an ongoing process of transformation
At the core of my work, I love to empower others through offering self-help skills. I will be sharing tools and practices you can use in your daily life that I've learned and found helpful personally and professionally.
Hello, I'm Suzanne Sky, MTOM, Life Resilience Coach. My early life was filled with stress and challenges that led me to become curious about consciousness, psychology, and neuroscience from a young age. The core of my life is a journey of the heart; both personally and in my studies and practices grounded in ancient wisdom traditions. Through mentors and my own experience, I learned to ground, nourish, and stabilize my nervous system with practices that still inform and nourish me today.
The skills and practices in this course are rooted in several decades experience in consciousness and psychospiritual work, neuroscience studies, meditation practice, and 31 years as a Chinese medicine practitioner. As I worked professionally to foster wellness with clients, I discovered that the essence of wellness is resilience and further that the essence of resilience is the journey of living an embodied life rooted in spirit – our heart's knowing – with compassion, kindness, and an open heart. I quickly observed that compassionate listening combined with techniques and practices that promote relaxation of the nervous system facilitates the healing process on all levels. Throughout my life, the most frequent comment I hear from people and clients is that they experience a calm presence and sense of safety and relaxation with me.
The course weaves together simple practices based in a deep understanding of the human psyche gleaned from neuroscience and consciousness studied grounded in the time-proven ancient practices and philosophies of the Eastern and Western mystical traditions.
Learning to live in the moment where we experience Presence, or the ground of Being, is what I call grace. During these 5 sessions, we'll unpack the 5 master keys along with challenges, and practices to support our embodied, alive calm resilience.

Over time, we embody and reconnect with our heart's innate quality of presence or being; what I call grace.
Through a process of practice, inquiry, and discourse we will explore various qualities and experiences of both anxiety and calm, unpacking them so that we expand our capacity to open to GRACE - which I consider MY DEFIINITION OF GRACE HERE WHERE IS IT?
The invitation is to explore and expand awareness on all levels:
