The Living Source - Your Personal Energy Charging Station

Plug In To The Power Of You

 

The Living Source, founded by Dr. Sandra Lewis, is a place where you can recharge and find resources to be your best you. Life In 4-Part Harmony is a feminine-centered, personal energy management system that can help you ignite the power of your purpose, organize and achieve your goals, manage your personal energy resources, unleash the power of gratitude, and create a unique legacy.

Women often feel that balance is playing hard to get. Every time we get close to balance, it seems to slip away. We are active, care-giving, career-building visionaries on a mission to have impact in the world and create lives that we love. We get up early & we go to bed late. Even though we’ve gotten good at time management, it often feels like the clock is winning. Even when we have time, we’re often not showing up as our best self.

We’re falling asleep at our computer. We’re multitasking, trying to talk on the phone and answer email at the same time. On the extreme end, we’re collapse from exhaustion and begin to doubt our dreams and goals.

Many business mentors, leadership trainers and researchers say the latest energy crisis is a personal energy crisis.  We’re very good at charging our phones. In fact, our phones will tell us they’re going into low power mode. We’re not so good at revitalizing and recharging ourselves throughout our day.

The magical thing is that we have everything we need to build and sustain energy – our mind, our body, and our spirit. We are literally a living source of energy. And we need every kind of energy in every flavor - physical, mental, emotional & spiritual.

Below are two options for group programs help you put Life In 4-Part Harmony into action to renew and sustain your energy. With a few well-placed strategies we can:

  • Increase and sustain our physical vitality

  • Enhance emotional flexibility and balance

  • Align our work with our purpose for the greatest fulfillment

  • Shift our mindset into the confidence zone

  • Ignite our creativity

  • And bring our best self to the people and projects that matter most to us

  • Qigong for Women’s Health

 

This program is designed to support women’s bodies. Women move through natural cycles each month and throughout the life course. The physical body has the support of an energy network, commonly referred to as meridians in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Like physics, a core idea in TCM is that energy is the foundation for everything. This program aims to support wellness by building a strong internal structure where life fore energy flows smoothly and organ systems work harmoniously.

 

Originally created as a breast health program, this series of seven Wu Ming Qigong movements was designed to meet women’s unique physical needs. The gentle yet powerful movements help to activate the flow of the energy along merdian pathways and balance the body. In addition, to Qigong, participants learn a wellness framework to cultivate emotional, physical and spiritual harmony.
