This week we continue our discussion about the role that the Mind can play in the Mind Body Spirit balance. One of the most important roles our mind plays is as a collector of data that sources our creativity. Most all of us can use a little more creativity in our work, or in our everyday tasks of life. How best can we source our minds to keep them fresh and free, and yet focused on the task at hand?
This week’s guest will share her insights, tips and advice on how she keeps her mind free and creativity in full gear as the owner of not one but two businesses that are driven by creativity. Amanda Paffrath is the owner of Hot Shop Glass and Funky Hannah’s Beads. Both businesses provide opportunities for guests to come and be creative! But as the owner of the businesses, and as an artist herself, Amanda will share how she continues to nurture her own creativity while also managing the day to day issues involved in running two businesses. It creates a unique opportunity for balance, and Amanda has lots of good insights to share.
Amanda is also a busy mother and active community volunteer, as well as an accomplished bead and glass artist.

This week we will begin a month of shows that focus on the Mind part of the Mind Body Spirit balance. We have already talked about the Spirit and Body parts of this balance. We are talking about the Mind aspect last for a good reason…..we spend too much time letting our Mind get in the way of things! We can overthink, overanalyze, and let our minds run the show too often. Our discussion today will help us start to change our relationship with our Mind to one where we can be more open to the limitless possibilities our Mind can provide.
Our guest this week is holistic life coach, speaker and healer, Markus Kasunich. Markus speaks often on issues related to personal growth, and works with clients to help them access their own potential. He has a unique perspective on how we can utilize our mind and consciousness in new and expansive ways and will be sharing them in this discussion.
Markus and host Chris Kann have presented at various conferences on the topic of Creativity, sharing a unique approach to understanding and accessing the brain.

We’ll wrap up our series of discussions on the Body part of the Mind Body Spirit balance this week by talking about the connection we can make to spirit with our bodies through yoga. When used as a regular practice, yoga can be a way to create space for sacredness and centeredness amidst our busy days. Join us to explore this perspective and to be inspired about the opportunity to go deeper with yoga.
Annette Jacobson began practicing yoga in 2008, after her involvement in sprint triathlons was a catalyst to investigate the mind body connection. Soon she was practicing yoga several times a week, and attended yoga retreats in Costa Rica. Here she began to experience aspects of the body that led her further into yoga. As a result, Annette completed a 9 month long 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in May 2010. Three short months later she spent 4 weeks at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, where she studied Yoga Therapy. In December 2010 she completed her 300 hour Yoga Therapy Training. She has been teaching yoga therapy classes in Racine and is currently preparing to relocate to downtown Milwaukee. As a result of practicing yoga, she is experiencing the mind-body-spirit connection in ways she never could have imagined.

What is your relationship to the food you eat? Do you find yourself eating out of habit? Are you inspired by the food you eat and do you enjoy preparing it?
It is possible and even encouraged to enjoy selecting, preparing, and eating food that can be nurturing and sustaining to your body. It just takes a bit of insight and guidance to remind us of what our body already knows.
Our guest will be food enthusiast Heidi Fannin. Heidi is a health and wellness coach, and works closely with her clients to raise their awareness about the food they eat. Heidi received her training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where she trained in more than one hundred dietary theories. She is a founding member of Eat Right Racine, a local organization with a mission to educate people of all ages about food.
Heidi is also a busy wife, mother, community volunteer, gardener and healthy eating pioneer.
