Inspiring Women-Angeles Arrien

I was first introduced to Angeles Arrien when I started my training in vibrational healing.  It was a goal of the school director and myself to attend a workshop by this amazing woman.  I am sad to say it never happened.  However, through her books and tapes, I have experienced her teachings.

Angeles Arrien was a cultural anthropologist, award-winning author and speaker. She developed through her books and workshops practices using the cross-cultural components of leadership and communication skills, creative problem-solving, health care, and education.

Her book, The Four-Fold Way: Walking the Paths of the Warrior, Teacher, Healer and Visionary gave me the following archetypes to study.

Warrior: Show up and choose to be present
Healer
: Pay attention to what has heart and meaning
Visionary
: Tell the truth without blame or judgment
Teacher: 
Be open to outcome, not attached to outcome.

Another Inspiring Woman we will truly miss.  Thank you Angeles Arrien for being such a bright light and leader.

“In the sweet territory of silence we touch the mystery.

It’s the place of reflection and contemplation,

and it’s the place where we can connect with the deep knowing,

to the deep wisdom way.” ~ Angeles Arrien

 

Inspiring Women - Lucille Ball

Inspiring Women, features women recognized for their amazing contributions.   Hopefully you will appreciate their Feminine Spirits.

Inspiring Women - Lucille BallLucille Désirée Ball (August 6, 1911 – April 26, 1989) was an American actress, comedian, model, and film studio executive. She was the star of the sitcoms I Love LucyThe Lucy–Desi Comedy HourThe Lucy ShowHere’s Lucy, and Life with Lucy.  I chose Lucille Ball because of her healing gift of humor.  She made us laugh even when things looked dismal.

Lucy was a loveable, ditzy, redheaded, character, that we still can watch on reruns of  ’I Love Lucy’.  But Lucille Ball was also a brilliant business woman in a male dominated profession.  In 1962, she became the first woman to run a major television studio,  which produced many successful  television series such as Mission Impossible and Star Trek.

Many hospitals now offer laughter therapy programs as a complementary treatment to illness.  Close your eyes and visualize people laughing across this county at an inspiring redheaded comedian.  We love Lucy!
