Mindset over Matter: How Jami Papenberg Followed Her Heart & Light

Posted by Jade Marvin on 5/12/22 4:00 PM

I had settled into a comfort zone before SWIHA. Back in 2008, I decided I wanted to become a massage therapist, and I wanted to get out of the Midwest and start my life over in Arizona. I bought a plane ticket and scheduled a tour of SWIHA, then met a guy who wanted me to stay in the Midwest. I took the trip, toured the school, and really liked it, yet I let that guy talk me into staying and going to massage school in St. Louis, closer to home. We divorced in 2018 -- turns out living someone else's dream doesn't lead to much happiness. Over the years I've become passionate about mental health, from healing from the traumatic birth of my son in 2011 to navigating divorce, and seeing how my massage clients could gain so much more healing if they worked on their emotional health as much as they worked on their physical health. I had my eye on life coaching, and what popped up on my first Google search was SWIHA! Things came full circle, and I took it as a sign.”

Posted by Jade Marvin on 1/25/22 4:00 PM

The power of intention is the power to manifest, to create, to live a life of unlimited abundance, and to attract into your life the right people at the right moments.” - Wayne Dyer

Great Graduate Kami Pollvogt, of the Life Coaching Program here at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts, worked in corporate America for over twenty years.

Trust Your Intuition: Your Gut Knows What’s Up

Posted by Jade Marvin on 5/27/21 4:00 PM

When we look for guidance, we often look outside of ourselves for answers or to feel complete. We may feel unworthy or unprepared for answering our own questions, when in reality, the answer was within ourselves all along. Being in tune with oneself is a hard skill to master, yet a necessary one to be able to gain clarity through life’s hardships. When we draw awareness inwards and practice the art of mindfulness, we can then begin to feel supported and at peace. Like any relationship, the one we have with ourselves takes time to nourish and thrive.

Amanda Shaffie Uses Coaching to Help Others with their Goals, Purpose, Relationships and Mindset

Posted by Jade Marvin on 5/20/21 4:00 PM

We all get asked the big question “What do you want to be when you grow up?” For many, this question stays unanswered for a long time. For others, they seem to have it all figured out. The answer to this question comes at different points in life for people, and that’s okay. Your path does not have to follow a certain timeline. For Amanda Shaffie, Life Coaching was always built in for her. She asserts, “I have always enjoyed the investment in others and helping to clear a path for those to meet new opportunities and challenges that further their quality of living”.

Amanda Shaffie already had an established practice, Amanda Shaffie Life Coaching, and felt the need to continue her education, which ultimately led her to SWIHA. Amanda states, “I was curious if my methods could be expanded. With many people feeling more at ease with an accredited formal type of training, I decided to go for it. And I am glad I did”.

Follow Your Bliss With Transformational Life Coaching

Posted by Anthony Scarpulla on 1/11/17 10:00 AM

Kimberlie Faybik experienced a lot of difficulties in a short period of time: she battled cancer, lost her mother and grandmother within months of each other, and separated from her children's father. “I reached out for help because I felt lost. I was blessed to have many people care for me, however, one friend in particular happened to be a SWIHA graduate. She told me about the Mind-Body Transformational Psychology program, and I'm forever grateful for her guidance.” It was there where she learned how to love herself, how to forgive herself, and (in her own words), “how to be more understanding of my journey and honor the journey of others', as well.”
