WHAT IS whole-life navigation?
Founder, Charters To Wellness
Thank you for your interest in Charters to Wellness (CTW). Much of my life has been spent on beaches and, thanks to my late Father, boats.
In his honor, I conceptualized this program around nautical metaphors.
Like many, I feel the sun, sea and sand resonating within, throughout
and around my soul! I employ the tall ship as
the symbolic vehicle upon which one embarks on a course to discover a
state of optimal health, wealth and happiness…a charter to wellness. On
this charter you'll experience the necessary tools in order to: access
your life force (your vitality), elevate your level of vitality, and
keep it where you want it, and, thus, thrive on your own terms!
We offer programs ranging from Mind*Body*Spirit Personal Care and Personal Development to Personal Finance (financial "wellth"). We also advocate for and market eco-friendly and wellness products.
Wellness is a state of being, the pursuit of which is a perpetual process rather than a final, absolute destination. So much for the notion of arriving at that place
of perfection and passively "living happily ever-after". As long as you
live you've got to keep it moving! The great thing is that by choosing
to live authentically and strategically in the present, you can project a
higher yield for the future.
One in setting out on your course to wellness is getting “on-board”
and claiming your captain’s license. YOU have the right to design YOUR
OWN manifest, to make YOUR mistakes, to go off-course, to weather YOUR
storms! When you sail into that sunny, picturesque harbor it'll
feel so wonderful. You'll stay for a while, until things change..... and
you know they inevitably always do, eventually. So you'll embark upon
other journeys and you'll find that each journey to safe harbor becomes
easier! Sometimes, not; but life's experiences teach us to appreciate
the rough seas for the gifts they bring to us.
The pursuit of wellness is an ongoing charter of discovery, learning,
development and growth, one’s journey through life. This self-evolution
empowers us to facilitate our own healing process whenever our state of
well-being feels compromised. Remember, however, that every good captain needs an exceptional crew. Throughout
one’s journey, navigating from one port to the next, it is imperative
to interview, employ and manage the presence of supportive crew members
(i.e., the people in one’s life: family, friends, partners, teachers,
coaches, professional helpers, etc…,) to help out NOT ONLY when the
weather turns and waters become rough; but continually to serve as
Knowing when it’s time to throw over the excess baggage is essential.
Life presents us with constant changes, which make it necessary for one to shift in
order to manage the impact. When a boat is impacted by the wake of a
larger passing ship or unfriendly seas, what happens? Does it keel over
or capsize under the pressure? No. The boat stays afloat because it
is equipped with the ability to rock from side to side until it regains
it’s equilibrium and resumes it’s natural course.
programs are designed to effectively guide individuals or special
groups through the navigation process of life’s various courses,
facilitating growth, awareness, universal connection and self
empowerment. The programs are facilitated by myself, A certified professional coach, former educator and certified massage therapist, or other
providers of holistic health modalities and professional services. When appropriate, I refer out
to professionals offering exceptional products or services.
My hope is that during the course of your many pursuits of
self discovery you'll embark upon Charters to Wellness as a navigation
vessel.... a safe space. At least catch a wave with us!
It’ll be a fun ride!
With Warmest Regards and Many Blessings,
.....may your journey be blessed!
