The past three days have been some of the best this year! Two amazing events happened that I wanted to share with you all. Art Intersection, a very nice fine art gallery in downtown Gilbert, Arizona, hosted an artist’s reception for their All Art Arizona display. My last blog detailed this event and my work that was chosen for it, and it turned out to be a huge success. Hundreds of people showed up to look at all the art. I was so touched to see many friends and followers of this blog show up and surprise me. It was hard to hold back tears at times so I just jumped up and down instead. 🙂 .
For over three hours, I was surrounded by a crowd of people who were interested in my trip to Antarctica and interested in my new business practice (more on that below). I told them the story of taking a Russian icebreaker across the Southern Ocean and Drake passage and helicoptering onto the sea ice to trek another mile to the penguin colony. Visitors loved my penguin image and I even shared some video of the Emperor penguin chicks on my phone. The art gallery owner came up to me at the end and was very impressed by the response to my photo. He even wants to discuss doing my own display in the gallery in the future! He also expressed interest in my other business–healing people in pain, stress and anxiety find relief–and wants me to consult with his neuro movement clinic and his daughter who practices Chinese medicine in the valley. It was a big night!
And now for the exciting news….
I’m going to be on TV!!! Yesterday, I went to the ABC15 studios to be interviewed for a short segment for their morning show, Sonoran Living, to talk about my new business, the PABR Institute! The hosts were fascinated about how I used a special breathing technique to calm down the nervous system to help the body reposition to neutral.
Both Susan Casper and Terri Ouellette were fascinated by the process and a client who came with me as a testimonial caught me on video below explaining what I do.
Before taping the segment, I taught Terri how to breathe differently so she could relax her nervous system. I explained how this has helped so many conditions besides pain relief. Some of the other benefits I explained to her were decreased stress, improvement in sleep, reduction in medication use, cancelling neck and back surgeries, cancelling joint replacement surgeries, increased mobility/flexibility and improving strength or athletic performance.
My client also caught a few minutes of the breathing instruction as you can see below.
While the majority of my time lately has been devoted to starting this practice and seeing clients, I still have some photography opportunities planned, including a trip to Alaska in a few days. If you are interested in the PABR method or know anyone suffering from pain, stress or anxiety, please check out my website, www.pabrinstitute.com to learn more. I now have a free email subscription on the PABR website if you are interested in getting my Tips for Relief emails. If you sign up, please check your spam folder to make sure you don’t miss any emails from me. I would love to have you part of this new journey with me.
