What did we do before doing this work?
For 35 years, Susie has been a student of relationships, spirituality, energy and the life force. Her search for physical, emotional and spiritual healing has led her to the study of Polarity Therapy, cranio-sacral therapy, reflexology, Hatha Yoga, the Enneagram, and much more. Her formal training includes a Bachelor of Science degree in education, a Masters degree in Library Science, and is a Registered Polarity Practitioner with the American Polarity Therapy Association and Certified Comprehensive Coach from Comprehensive Coach U. Susie is a veteran teacher and university librarian with over 30 years experience teaching in the public schools and university classes.
Otto spent over 20 years as a successful salesperson and marketer of a variety of products and services. Many of those years were spent in the radio and TV advertising business in markets of all size in Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia.
Many years ago, as a result of pondering three of life’s greatest questions-- Who am I, Why am I here and What’s this all about-- Otto turned his life’s focus to bear on the practice and study of spirituality, personal growth and relationships.
We passionately believe that life can be lived in a joyful, conscious, loving way and we are committed to helping others to experience the potential of what is possible in their own lives and relationships. The desire to be loved the way we wanted to be loved took each of us on a journey of discovery of how to create the relationship of our dreams. We believe Spirit put us together for our own personal growth and to shine the light of hope for others. Our goal is to help others create outstanding lives and passionate, alive, connected relationships.
