Focused Glow

Lisa Dugdale

Before becoming a life coach, Lisa Dugdale worked in a non-profit that supported locally owned businesses. She also has been doing organizational consulting for many years, and has begun integrating and teaching coaching skills into her consulting. Through her studies and personal life experience, Lisa has tapped into a new way of making decisions. By being present in the moment, using her intuition and testing out what feels right, Lisa has experienced many synchronicities and flow (in other words, the “magic” of life). To further grow that knowledge, last year she completed life coach training with Martha Beck, a well-known teacher and life coach. 
Through her work Lisa helps her clients awaken the internal knowledge that they already possess to aid them along their own personal journey.  Lisa takes a love-focused approach to her clients' barriers, helping to work through them and envision a path to what gives them joy.
Lisa became connected with New Myth Works through a friend and attended the Earth Birthday event in December of 2012.  Lisa’s own techniques and approach to business align with New Myth Works’ mission. Lisa has also been part of the Wisdom Council since the spring.
This month, Lisa will be facilitating the Divine U Workshop - Super Powers: The Life Compass You Never Knew You Had.  During this workshop, participants will learn what Superpowers are (and what they are not), and ideas on how to tap into them. Knowing how to access our superpowers allows us to move into a space where we can give what we are here to give.  It should be a great workshop, so if you’re interested, read more below in the newsletter, or click here, or register and experience it all first-hand.
Currently, Lisa is on her way back from Asheville, NC, where she was doing life coaching, developing a new workshop series, and spending some time recharging. She is stopping in St. Louis to participate in the 23rd Superhero Bike Ride, an adventure dedicated to selfless service, simplicity, and awakening the superhero nature of every person. At this very moment she’s probably somewhere near St. Louis with 24 other bikers, wearing a funny outfit and a cape, and performing random acts of service and kindness. How cool is that?

Our Newest New Myth-er! 
Congratulations to Leah and Craig Myers

Brennan Alexander Myers was born September 13 at 7:11, weighing in at 7lbs 2 oz. 
He made everyone in the operating room laugh by pushing out his bottom lip and perfecting the pout.

Quite the eating machine, he is growing very fast.  Brennan started holding his own bottle at 11 days old and when he's hungry and knows there is a bottle nearby he will grab it and throw his pacifier out of his mouth. One time his dad wondered why his pacifier was so crooked and it became clear he had found one in his crib and put it in his mouth himself. 

He loves bath time, loves to be held and grabs onto your shirt when you hold him.   And Brennan is now starting to coo. He's a very cuddly baby.

Join the AHMA Michigan Chapter

Members of the New Myth Works community that have a practice in the helping/wellness areas may want to consider joining the Michigan Chapter of the American Holistic Medical Association. Word on the street is that many of the old guard institutions are beginning to embrace holistic and integrative philosophies and practices. They're going to need our help!  There are memberships for certified but un-licensed (by the state) practitioners as well as for licensed physicians and other health care professionals. You can even join as a "Friend" if you are not a practitioner and wish to support this organization.

As New Myth Works grows, we may in the future consider an organizational membership that would allow for AHMA membership discounts and other perks.

"Joining the AHMA demonstrates your belief in the principles and practices of holistic medicine and makes you a vital partner in the transformation from conventional/allopathic medicine to an integrative, holistic model. We hope you'll join us in this important work."
