A journey within to align your life spiritually, mentally, physically,  emotionally and environmentally. 

Mindfulness in action to support total well-being

The Power Living Foundation Course is mindfulness in action training to support total well-being.  It will teach you how to develop and deepen your practice of living on purpose, strengthening your intuitive wisdom and innate power.  The program:

1) guides you in contemplative practices to build self-awareness,

2) provides short video lessons on wellness, mindfulness and conscious living, and

3) gives you a system you can use for your own personal growth and transformation.

Hone the skill of "noticing" your own habits and make small tweeks to clear the way for you to go deeper within to realize your true Self.  Learn frameworks to help you think about large concepts such as purpose and change, and immediately apply what you learned in worksheets, coaching and journaling exercises.  Awaken to a life of peace, health and bliss.

 

WHAT IS HOLDING YOU BACK?

Transformation is an integrated journey of mind, body and spirit...

Clarity

You don't have clear direction in terms of your strengths, heart's desire, and Purpose.

Energy

You have clarity of vision but don't have the energy to take consistent action. 

Belief

You get off to a strong start in taking action and then get stuck or lose faith.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

On a practical level, Power Living is knowing who you are and what you value and organizing your entire life around it--what you do for work, who you choose to love, when and what you eat, how you communicate to yourself and others. On a deeper level, it is building a consistent practice of mindfulness in action allowing you to increase self-awareness and approach life on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally. The Five Principles of Power Living, along with the contemplative practices, will guide you. Isn't it time to live an authentic, fully-expressed life?

Meet Your Teacher

 

Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy

What do you get when you cross a Harvard MBA, Master Coach and Mind-Body Expert? Quite a bit of Yin-Yang! Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy has been transforming lives and powering up audiences around the world for over 20 years tapping into her unique multi-disciplinary background and real-world experience as a corporate executive, C-suite advisor, entrepreneur, holistic health counselor, and yoga/meditation teacher.  After leaving a successful media career, she founded the first yoga studio in Harlem in 2002, and has led hundreds of mindfulness-based programs for organizations and events. An award-winning author and biographer for yoga master Tao Porchon-Lynch, she was selected as World Economic Forum Young Global Leader, and has been a Discussion Leader for the Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland. She has in-depth training in Integral and Dharma Yoga, and has studied Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) in the tradition of Jon Kabat-Zinn.

OUR METHODOLOGY

Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy was a researcher at Harvard Business School groomed in analytical thinking and the use of best practices. Therefore, our Power Living system of transformation is anchored in three proven processes:

  1. To help our clients fine-tune their life vision, build self-awareness and cultivate deep belief, we anchor our practices in mindfulness and positive psychology and use evidence-based approaches to self-inquiry such as meditation, visualization, coaching and journaling.
  2. To assure success, we focus on the aggregation of marginal gains making a small 1% improvement every day toward an overarching goal versus one big radical change with the hope it will stick. Making systematic tweeks to your habits while applying the skill of mindful noticing can have a significant impact over time and help develop a growth mindset.
  3. For ongoing motivation and support, we layer in community. With digital technology, you now have access to a growing global network of like-minded people who seek to live authentic, fully-expressed lives.
