Anyone who has struggled to make peace with the refrigerator and the scale can identify with the vicious cycle of painfully forging a bit of progress, only to see it vanish after getting fed up with the struggle to eat healthfully.
Our guest on this CHI FOR YOURSELF offers a new approach for stopping this cycle once and for all. The solution it provides has very little to do with food and everything to do with developing the essential skills that the majority of overeaters lack for coping with life’s ups and downs. Karen Koenig is the author of Outsmarting Overeating: Boost Your Life Skills, End Your Food Problems.

Our CHI FOR YOURSELF guest is Gina Vucci. Gina and Shakti Gawain have co-authored The Relationship Handbook: A Path to Consciousness, Healing, and Growth.
Their approach reflects the fact that each of us is in relationships not only with romantic partners, family, coworkers, and children, but also with internal core beliefs and a variety of selves, including primary, disowned, and shadow selves.
Gina tells us that us that every relationship we have at every moment can be seen as a path toward greater consciousness, healing, and growth.
In this episode we will be interviewing Stephen McLaughlin of White Cloud Kung Fu Academy as we discuss the practice of lineage succession. Located in Blackburn, Lancashire of the United Kingdom. White Cloud Kung Fu Academy was founded by Sifu Derek Gordon in 1962 and is today guided by 2 of his students, Dave Cowell & Head Coach Bill Keith, both with more than 40 years of Martial Arts experience. Steven McLaughlin is one of 2 senior instructors both with nearly 2 decades of continuous Martial Arts experience under their belt. He currently teaches Long Boxing(Chang Chuan), Wing Chun, Hsing-I , Bagua Zhang and Yang style Taiji Chuan. He began his training in Chinese Gong Fu at the age of 6 and at age 20 he received his 3rd rank of black belt in 2010.
Lineage succession is the practice of grooming specific students to act as a vessel of transmission for a particular martial style. Tai Chi Chuan is one style in particular that uses lineage documentation much like a family tree to trace its roots and origination. These lineage holders are then entrusted to become caretakers of a particular style ensuring their art continues to thrive in its entirety. Lineage succession is predominantly practiced throughout Asia but we are finding that this method of knowledge preservation is also surfacing in the Asian martial arts in the western world.
Although White Cloud Kung Fu Academy does not officially use Lineage succession the principles of personal growth, self-realization, and lifetime cultivation, are carefully fostered and guided. Steven Mclaughlin is now the 3rd generation of instructors at White Cloud Kung Fu academy.

Marney Makridakis is our guest on this CHI FOR YOURSELF. Marney visited us a couple of years ago to talk about her book Creating Time. Then she turned conventional wisdom about the nature of time on its head.
Now she’s back and sort of poking the paradigm with a lighthearted look at manifesting, and a new book called Hop, Skip, Jump: 75 Ways to Manifest a Meaningful Life.

We all love to talk about love, and we likely always will because so much of it is mysterious. From the partners we choose, to why we leave or stay, to how a relationship’s dynamics are always changing, nothing hurts or heals so much.
The notions that passion always peters out, that there’s a “seven-year itch,” and that the honeymoon is over as soon reality sets in have some truth to them. But our CHI FOR YOURSELF GUEST promises that long-term, wholehearted love is still possible!

In this CHI FOR YOURSELF interview, Capt. Willis tells John Kobik how first responders and their loved ones can protect and nurture their spirits, and also how to seek help and make effective use of the help that exists, from professionals, peers, and families.

Greetings Group Fitness Instructor peeps!
As I finished my tai chi practice this morning, I was inspired to record this show.
What's MindBody fitness? What does that even mean? I describe how I interpret MindBody fitness and why it is important that GFIs pay attention to this essential healing practice.
Questions explored include:
How do we adapt a tai chi class successfully to a group fitness format?
How do instructors create a standard format for teaching tai chi to students
Is tai chi for fighting or healing in the group fitness arena?
Can fitness instructors learn to mimic martial arts forms effectively?
Do instructors need to know the martial (fighting) aspects of tai chi to teach it?
How long will it take before you can start teaching a tai chi class?
How is a tai chi class structured for a 30-minute session?
You can connect to me on my Facebook page as MindBody Group Fitness Arts Foundation.

“Constructive wallowing” seems like an oxymoron. Constructive is a good thing, but wallowing is bad. Right?
But wait a minute; is it really so terrible to give ourselves a time-out to feel our feelings? Or is it possible that wallowing is an act of loving kindness, right when we need it most?
Our Chi For Yourself guest turns the conventional wisdom on its head. Tina Gilbertson is a successful therapist, workshop leader and blogger. She's the author of Constructive Wallowing: How to Beat Bad Feelings By Letting Yourself Have Them.
