Posted by Taylor Jablonowski on 10/3/19 3:00 PM

“SWIHA changed my life,” says Caitlin Goehring, a Mind-Body Wellness Practitioner graduate, “I don’t know where I’d be without these courses - it catapulted my spiritual growth and journey and brought me more in alignment than ever before.”

Caitlin was pulled to study holistic nutrition after witnessing illness in her family since a young age, “I’ve always believed in the healing power of food and wanted to support others in this. I had no idea the amount of spiritual downloads that I was in! I can best support my clients through nutrition, intuitive eating, and other spiritual practices such as astrology, tarot, and flower essences.”

From Employee to Entrepreneur: Carmen Payne Found Her Purpose Coaching Others

Posted by Taylor Jablonowski on 1/11/19 8:00 AM

In 2012, Carmen Payne was working in IT Project Management. She describes herself at that time as stressed out, spread too thin, and conflicted between work and personal commitments.

“I had lost my true self in this identity and my relationships at home and at work were suffering,” Carmen tells us, “An email announcing my 20th Anniversary popped into my inbox and I had a realization that I simply could not exist like this anymore.  I pulled out my resume and looked back on my amazing career and asked myself: ‘What used to make me jump out of bed in the morning and bound through the office doors?’  The role that literally lifted itself off the page at me was when I was training and coaching people.”

Posted by Taylor Jablonowski on 1/8/19 8:00 AM

My personal favorite quality of Janet Lee’s, a Holistic Nutrition instructor at SWIHA, is that she can make a heavenly cheesecake--and it’s all nutritious, raw vegan ingredients! A close contender is her ability to deliver her wisdom and knowledge in a relatable, engaging way. Each interaction, you’ll come away with a fascinating food fact or thinking: “Wow! I didn’t know I could do that with my veggie scraps.”

“I’ve always enjoyed hearing about people’s journeys,” she explains, “and I thought [Life Coaching] would be a nice compliment to my interest in nutrition coaching.”

Jillian Holper Feels ‘Empowered and Humbled’ to Witness Miraculous Shifts as a Life Coach and Clinical Hypnotherapist

Posted by Taylor Jablonowski on 1/7/19 8:00 AM

When Jillian Holper first enrolled at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts, she kept telling everyone she knew: “‘It’s as if the Universe materialized a school just for me’. I was almost in shock the first couple of months!”

Jillian completed the Mind-Body Transformational Psychology degree program and believes Life Coaching and Hypnotherapy have been the tools with which she’s created the best version of herself.

“It has allowed me to understand the way humans operate on a deeper level than I could've ever realized,” she says, “Most importantly, it’s given me the absolute honor of seeing what incredible things we can do when someone holds the space for us to heal. Miraculous things occur when we connect to our own innate wisdom and healing.”

I Made a Vision Board & This is What it Taught Me About My Goals (You Should Do It For 2019!)

Posted by Taylor Jablonowski on 12/27/18 2:00 PM

Hello everyone! Taylor here.

Being immersed in SWIHA-land for the past three years, I’ve heard a lot about vision boards. In fact, many of my coworkers keep them in their offices. They’re full of travel photos, symbols of prosperity and health, wishes for love and plenty of inspirational quotes. I love looking at other’s vision boards because I get to learn so much about their dreams and priorities.

With the new year approaching at lightspeed, I’ve been thinking about what I’d like to accomplish in 2019. So, I woke up this morning and decided to create my very first vision board! I grabbed my scissors and glue, found an unused canvas and began hunting for old magazines…to no avail. My on-going quest to live minimally has me reading digital copies of everything and immediately recycling junk mail.
