About this Course
Welcome to 'Go Where the Peace Is.' When it comes down to it, the single thing we want most is PEACE. There is nothing better. Come have a seat with us in Melody's room at The Ranch, and we'll get started on this lesson. We love you and we're so happy you're here.
It has been said over and over again throughout history that the most important thing we can ever attain is peace of mind. Peace is really what our whole soul craves and strives for...it is the place where we can find clarity, where our wisdom resides and a place of inner peace is really what is intended for all of us.
Why then, is it so difficult at times in our life to get to a place of peace? And then when we get there, why is it so hard to stay there?
Finding peace is really another one of those daily and hourly disciplines that we have to constantly be aware of and intentional about. Peace is not one of those things that is easy to find in this loud and crazy world. There is so much noise on the outside, and sometimes even more noise on the inside...with our minds buzzing with anything but peaceful thoughts.
One of the most important things that we can remember is that warring and fighting is the opposite of peace...and sometimes we can not find peace because we are warring, fighting and resisting the way our life is, the way our circumstances are, the way our relationships are. Some of these fights seem like they will never be able to end because the circumstances are not going to change. The magic in all of this is that WE can change even when our circumstances do not. We can choose to stop fighting, warring and resisting and instead cooperate with where our life is, how our life is and who is with us. We can choose to walk away from the fights too. We really can find peace by creating peace or simply by walking away from where the war is.
We get to choose so much about our lives, and especially about ourselves...we are not powerless. We can choose to go where the peace is, we can choose to create peace, we can choose to stay where the peace is.
When in doubt...do the thing that feels the most peaceful. This may not be the easiest thing to do...but it is always the right thing to do. Peace is good.
About the instructor
I love being part of Brave Girls Club and sitting in this big worldwide circle of sisterhood....it has changed my life in all of the best ways. I am profoundly grateful for all of it, and I work hard to never take it for granted.
I'm an artist, teacher and entrepreneur. I have started and owned a few different companies and written many books. I have sold and licensed my art all around the world, which is what I had dreamed of doing since I was a little girl. In 2004, my husband sustained a traumatic brain injury which changed the direction of our lives dramatically and led me to my TRUE life's work.
Taking care of my husband and holding my family together while my business and the rest of my life fell apart all around me left me feeling broken in every way. I used art and journaling to heal the fragmented parts of my soul, and once I felt healed I wanted nothing more than to share what I had learned and how I had healed with my sisters all over the world. That's where Brave Girls Club came from...my curriculum is what I have used to heal myself and make my life joyful again.
I live in Star, Idaho where my husband and I have raised our 5 children. My husband made a miraculous full recovery which we consider a tremendous miracle that has prompted us to spend our life helping others out of the kinds of dark times we were in for so long. Our greatest treasure in life is our family, ...especially the grandchildren who have come to us! We plan to spend the rest of our lives doing more of what we are doing now....enjoying life, helping where we can, creating beauty, and spending as much time as possible with our beloveds...at home and all over the world. We appreciate every new day we are gifted with, and life is beautiful! So happy to be here with all of you!
