Ep. 21 A Christmas Contemplation of Place (A Guided Meditation)

Updated: Apr 13, 2019

Listen to a BONUS episode explaining more here:

This episode is my Christmas gift to you, dear listeners. It's rooted in an old Ignatian meditation practice called "Contemplation of Place," which takes you into a sensory experience of the stories of sacred scriptures to unearth their deep wisdom for your life. For this contemplation we focus on divine creativity, calling it forth in our own lives through the Annunciation to Mary and the Nativity scene of Christ's birth.

Sit criss-cross-applesauce, prop yourself up on a pillow, and allow your mind to be caught up in this story--it is designed to prime you for the creative work that is uniquely yours to incarnate into the world, to say "yes!" to your divine assignment, and to conjure the power of angels as you work to bring it forth.

Listen to this episode anytime you need to tap into the Creative Source of Love who calls you by name. And share this meditation with the Creatives in your life who need a little pick-me-up and guidance for the year to come!

A special shout out to my husband, Dr. Mark Connelly, whose creative musical gifts in the background truly brought this episode to life!

Hi, I'm Wendy :)

I'm a podcaster, life coach and woman trying everyday to live with mojo, more joy. I have a Masters of Divinity degree (pastor's degree, Methodist tradition) with training in counseling and spiritual direction, am certified in the science of happiness, and have a research background at Duke University helping hundreds of participants through depression.

But mostly, I'm a mom. We probably have a lot in common.

Your kids deserve a confident, mentally-fit 

and joyful mom.

You deserve to be her. 

It's my core belief that when moms own their power and influence, everyone benefits. Being the best version of you is the greatest gift you can ever give your family.

It's why I do what I do. I once was where many moms  are: second-guessing, playing small, wondering if I'd missed out on something everyone else knew or if I was enough. At a few pivotol lows, I asked Spirit for healing, guidance and help.

Spirit showed up in truly miraculous ways and led me to seminary to study my mind, emotions and soul. Out of my own transformation I created a tool called T.E.A.M. Work, which is the basis of everything I teach. It's like a mental chiropractic adjustment that aligns our thoughts to manifest more joy in our lives. Today I believe in myself. I believe in my extraordinary power as a mom. I'll teach you exactly how to get there, too.
