My 3rd Healthy Lifestyle Class - A Good Time

Yesterday, I held my 3rd “Healthy Lifestyle” class at the Ahwatukee Ironwood Library. I was nervous as usual about getting it set up, making sure my guest speaker showed and I was most nervous that few if any would attend.

Yes, I did my job to publicize it to the media and emailed 1800 Phoenix residents. But each time I do an event I just don’t know what will occur. That’s the good and bad of events.

This time few did attend and it was the best one, yet. So go figure.

The guest speaker, Karla Hurt, owner of MoonStone Wellness also arrived an half an hour late. But her timing had actually been perfect. Plus, she brought a friend and co-worker from Moonstone, named Toney. A fascinating, long red-haired woman who with her input complimented our group.

Each fault of the class became a victory and in reflection it was the best class I’d organized in quite some time. That’s an achievement since I’ve planned and hosted a lot of special events. Hundreds to thousands of events. I’m not sure the exact amount. I stopped counting now that I’ve been in PR for over years.

I wish you had been there to see what I mean. Every minute had a purpose and everyone there was meant to be in the round circle of chairs.

The library room lights could be dimmed and it felt like an intimate and surreal gathering of strangers. Don’t get me wrong they were not strange. The all were friendly but all of us found ourselves there thrown together out of curiosity for “Optimal Health”. That theme alone makes me feel good.

As we all anticipated Karla’s arrival to advise us on meditation techniques we started talking about our nutrition interests. It all got started with me explaining why I even have the class each month and then everyone else added their opinions, strategies and tips. That’s what I was hoping would happen at the end of the class but no worries it occurred. From the early part of the class I learned about organic food vendors, social networks and shopping tricks for raw and whole foods.

My hypnotherapist who is also a Reiki Master, Brenda Lowe, surprised me by attending the class. I was so honored that she came I kept glancing at her and hoping it wasn’t a dream. Brenda has been a wonderful health consultant and life coach for me and for her to show up at my event was a great source of fun for me.

So there I was in a circle with interesting people, at my right sat Brenda and at my left was Karla, a dynamic business woman, spiritual guide and meditation advisor.

We began to talk about mediation techniques and Karla lead us through several “out of the box” (her words) examples. After each short mediation, she asked us introspective questions as to how we enjoyed the mediation. This was perfect. I was learning not only from her questions but from the answers in the group. It was just what I had planned for. Now I was wondering if it had been worthwhile for the others.

Teresa, a class attendee, pronounced her enjoyment by stating we deserved “gold stars” for attending. That made me very glad.

I’d brought some whole food, Nuplus,  and beverage samples, Calli Tea and Fortune Delight Teas, I love so much from Sunrider and gave them out as they walked out the library room doors.

Gold stars of nutrition in their hands I felt like all my effort was worthwhile.

So I’ll plan another at the library for 9.19.09. I’m not certain who will be the speaker (s). Send me suggestions if you like and SAVE the DATE.

Saturday, 9.19.09. 11:30 am to 1 pm, Ahwatukee Ironwood Library.

It will be worth it. I’m not sure how or why but if you are like me and want to spend 90 minutes on “Optimal Health” join us. I’ll be there, smiling.
