This week on Coach Cafe, THE Self-Empowerment Place to Meet, Estra and Kathleen welcome Celeste Yacoboni, author of How Do You Pray? as their guest.
Most of us grew up introduced to some form of prayer. As we evolve, so do our prayers; as our prayers evolve, so do we. Praying means different things to different people, and there are many diverse ways to connect with the Divine. Celeste Yacoboni was guided to ask the world, "How do you pray?" She reached out to family and friends and then to leading figures from all walks of life and schools of thought. How Do You Pray? is an interspiritual prayer book and resource guide to an emerging global spirituality, which embraces our religious and spiritual diversity. The 129 contributors range in spiritual traditions from Buddhism to Islam to Christianity, as well as those who do not claim any particular faith. Some of the contributors include: Matthew Fox, Gregg Braden, Byron Katie, Marianne Williamson, Masuro Emoto, Lama Surya Das, Patch Adams and Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shalomi. This show and the book will inspire you to consider what it means to you to pray---how do you connect with the Greater Consciousness? "How we pray is as diverse as each being on our planet..."
Celeste Yacoboni is a Minister of Walking Prayer, ordained by the Center for Sacred Studies in Sonora, California. Her work focuses on guiding and supporting people through transitions by creating a space of awareness, presence and inspiration, which intergrates body, mind, spirit and emotions. She has a thriving private practice in Sante Fe, NM. You can visit her website at www.CelestialBodyandSoul.com and learn more about her vision and book at www.HowDoYouPray.com

Strategies of Success
Host Brian A Cohen
Isn't it a bit strange that we go through some 12+ years of schooling, going through math, science, social studies, history, English, etx., but seem to have missed the class of how to live life? At least when I was in elementary school and Jr. High School, we received bits and pieces of such, but nothing directly which would help us understnad the world in which we live or how to live successfully in it.
the choices we have as to how we live our lives are many and varied, filled with individuals and philosophies to guide you along their particular parth, always with a price to pay ... usually paid by you and me. Each direction given has a result, and end point that is laid out and moved toward with each step we take in that particular school or philosophy of living.
Most of us have been there but seem to have missed what life is truly about. Today, we'll continue to look at how to get and receive direction in life beginning with a story from an Audrey Hepburn movie, "The Nun's Story". Let' look at "How You Are Living Your Life" and see if we can make sense out of all of this.
The story of boy meets girl, then boy marries girl is awesome. But what happens after "the pursuit?" This episode will be dedicated to those asking "How do I continue playing the game, after I've already won?"
Jeff Payne, a wonderful father of four and husband of 34 years will give insight, tips and inspiration for how to keep "the marriage game" fresh!

Where we give our attention is what grows; our thoughts turn into our action. Focus on what you desire and the positive manifestations you want.
We have the power to direct our thoughts, emotions and state of being. Why not direct those thoughts to what we desire. This show will provide helpful tips on how to stay focused on your desires, and will include a guided meditation to demonstrate how to tap into the world within that holds infinite potentiality to manifest!
“With our thoughts, we make the world.” ~ Buddha
Portage, MI – Teenage rebellion is a process of individuation; to form their own opinions and beliefs and assert their individuality, adolescents must separate their identity from you as their child. Though this process can be aggravating to parents, it is normal.
Sometimes, however, an adolescent’s volatile emotional needs begin to dominate the home and control the moods of everyone in it. What began as the vision of a perfect family soon devolves into arguments and chaos.
“Families love each other – that’s a given – but they don’t always know how to express it or give each other what they need emotionally,” says family counselor Theresa Britton.
Britton is a licensed master social worker and the founder of Family Matters Counseling, specializing in providing counseling services to couples, adolescents, children and adults. Britton is trained in brief strategic family therapy, which helps families with adolescents face problems related to truancy, poor school performance and defiant behavior.
“Each family is an individual family with its own structure and patterns of communication, so you need to have a variety of skillsets and tools to help that family best,” says Britton. “My goal is to look at their interactions, how they function and communicate, and devise strategies to help them overcome those obstacles.”
According to Britton, families tend to argue about their story with each other. In a family systems approach, everyone feels heard and everyone’s story is accepted.
“Everyone has their own perspective but there’s a little truth to them all,” explains Britton. “I have it organized so that all the family members participate. We talk about past hurts and you would be surprised how honest kids are; even defiant teens will be brutally honest about why they’re misbehaving."
