Welcome to Flowering Cactus

Welcome to Flowering Cactus. 

I know that is a funny name for a business but it was inspired by a dream. 

I dreamt I was a giant cactus with big long spines and suddenly I began to burst out all over with big red flowers. When I awoke, I realized that the dream was a metaphor for self love and acceptance- that happiness comes from accepting oneself completely, thorns, flowers and all. 

My ultimate hope for this entity which is currently only myself, a mind/body coach/yoga instructor/public speaker and writer, is to be a resource for finding self-actualization, acceptance and love through a variety of means provided by a plethora of experts. A one stop shop, if you will, for you to find the people who can help guide you to that place of serenity that will make your life more joyful, abundant and meaningful. 

Having this space is important because if you don’t do the whole-istic  work to discover how fabulous you really are and learn to revel in your own faults and attributes you will have missed out on the secret to loving and being compassionate towards others - which is really the point of this human experience.

If you do take the time to travel the whole-istic road to self-acceptance then you will be able to truly, healthfully love others and live in the peace and joy we all desire.

I know this is true because of the lesson I learned on a recent trip to India:

There are only two things that are important in this life- 

  1. How you treat yourself

  2. How you treat others

In that order. 

NOTHING ELSE MATTERS outside of these two things.

When is use the word “whole-istic” I am speaking to the yogic theory of the mind, body and spirit being considered one inseparable thing rather than three separate things as we often think of them in the West.

Flowering Cactus approaches wellness from the yogic vantage point and addresses the needs of its clients in all of these areas to manifest optimal health and thus explores many paths to the truth of self awareness. 

That means if you become a client you will have a coaching program that may include customized:

  • Yoga practice

  • Meditation

  • Mantras

  • Affirmations

  • Visualization work

  • Journaling

  • Daily practices from Ayurveda

  • Mudras

  • and lots more

I hope you will enjoy my journey as an entrepreneur and this entity’s journey as it grows into the space I dream of it to be.

Namaste,
