How Lourdes Menendez Accomplished Her Goals and Beyond with the Power of Intention

Posted by Jade Marvin on 1/20/23 8:00 AM

In honor of National Be On-Purpose Month, this January 2023, SWIHA Great Graduate and Healing Arts Practitioner Lourdes Menendez shares how intention and mindfulness show up in her life. Lourdes asserts, “Before SWIHA I had goals and purposes, however, I was not focused on how to continue living on purpose to achieve those goals. Then, the universe led me to SWIHA. I was randomly looking for a school to learn Hypnotherapy and an internal voice said ‘that one right there’ exactly when I was reading SWIHA's mission statement! I am passionate about Hypnotherapy because the benefits are limitless. Our subconscious is deep and has a limitless capacity and all the answers are inside us.”

Jenny McGee uses Holistic Nutrition Coaching to Heal the Mind, Body & Spirit

Posted by Jade Marvin on 11/10/22 4:00 PM

I knew I wanted to be a part of the Holistic Wellness industry 12 years ago when I started a new job working at Southwest Naturopathic Medical Center in Tempe, Arizona. This was my first introduction to what holistic medicine was and what it meant to view the body as a "whole" rather than just the symptom. I quickly grew passionate and learned that whole food nutrition is a necessary part to bring the body into balance. In 2009, I became a massage therapist and practiced for 5 years. I was passionate about massage therapy and eager to learn more. Little did I know, I was led to dive deep into my passion for helping my clients.”

Reiki Master Patti Oskvarek Guides Her Clients to a Harmonious Work-Life Balance Through the Art of Reiki

Posted by Jade Marvin on 11/3/22 4:00 PM

My life before SWIHA was quite different; I worked in a stressful career that was no longer fulfilling for me. However, I knew I wanted to help people and make a difference. SWIHA helped me realize I could have the life I wanted, make changes, and learn new skills to accomplish those goals. My husband was the one who encouraged me to become a Reiki Practitioner, and a friend of mine who is a Reiki Master said to look for an in-person school to learn Reiki. So I searched for schools, and that was how I found SWIHA. So why am I passionate about Reiki? When you see what a difference it makes in other people's lives for the better - when the client says the Reiki is working.

How Spiritual Coach Sophia Duhon Helps Others Explore Their Modern Spirituality

Posted by Jade Marvin on 10/27/22 4:00 PM

The meaning of spirituality has evolved and expanded over time, and various meanings can be found alongside each other. What does spirituality mean in the modern world? Modern Spirituality centers on the deepest values and meanings by which people live. This idea often embraces the idea of an inner path enabling a person to discover the essence of his or her being. This is exactly what Great Graduate Sophia Duhon was searching for before her time at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts. Sophia explains, “Before SWIHA, I felt a bit lost in terms of what my life purpose was, and how I wanted to go about educating myself, helping others, and raising the vibration of my spiritual self. My interest in non-denominational spirituality is what led me to SWIHA, as well as my desire to bring accessible Spirituality to everyone and anyone interested in the wisdom of the soul!

How Alexandria Taft Followed Her Heart to Help Others with Customized Coaching Sessions

Posted by Jade Marvin on 10/13/22 4:00 PM

Before I came to SWIHA I was very much steeped into one method of meditation in a close-knit community that surrounded it. However, it became a dogmatic life for me that eventually led me to suffer from being in a fixed mindset. After a 360 reality collapse, I began opening my mind to other things and intuitively leaning into a growth mindset. Which ultimately led me to SWIHA.
