You Angel You

Twenty years ago Peter Selby was practicing orthopedic physical therapy in Montana when he became spontaneously clairvoyant, allowing him to observe and work with Angels to treat the source of his client's physical problems.  Anne Selby, a gifted therapist herself, joined Peter in 2001 and they practice together in Sisters.

Their work has evolved into a holistic method for supporting health and wellness of body and Soul. Angels reveal and release the energetic and physical blockages associated with injury, trauma and negativity, healing many physical diseases and limitations. “Our job is to convey their wisdom and insights to our clients and support their healing.  Angels know their charges deeply and lovingly share their knowledge and healing gifts.”

Dawna Markova – Smart Wired Founder

SmartWired was founded on the asset-focused approach to learning researched, developed and practiced by Dawna Markova, Ph.D. and her associates over the past 40 years. SmartWired is a division of Dr. Markova’s company Professional Thinking Partners (PTP).

SmartWired’s asset-focused learning approach is a revolutionary shift in thinking, designed to create upward spirals of possibility for every child. Rather than focusing on what’s the matter with a child and attempting to fix it, we shift towards recognizing what really matters about each child—his or her unique assets and talents—so it can be developed in a positive way.

Dawna Markova is author of The Smart Parenting Revolution: A Powerful New Approach to Unleashing Your Child's Potential published September 2005 by Random House. A passionate battle cry for parents, teachers, and all of us concerned with the future of our greatest resource—our children, Dawna Markova gives us a practical, point-by-point guide toward taking responsibility for the future of our children, and changing a system and ideology that is a proven failure.

Patsy Wiggins, journalist and news anchor, and Kathleen Alfiero, public speaker and substance abuse counselor, crossed paths in Portland, Maine. Their years of experience led them to seek out and share stories of extraordinary ordinary people and to ask the questions:

“What does it look like when people follow their hearts?”

“How does living on purpose forever change the life you lead?”

Kathleen and Patsy know that stories remind us of what we already know about living a good life. By seeing real people, real passions, in their own, real setting, we, too, can remember who we are and what we are called to do.

Rachael Kessler – PassageWays Institute

The PassageWays Institute, founded and directed by Rachael Kessler, is dedicated to transforming the culture of classrooms, schools and districts so that the inner life of students and teachers is safe, nurtured and welcomed. By “inner life” we refer to that essential aspect of human nature that yearns for deep connection, grapples with difficult questions about meaning, and seeks a sense of purpose and genuine self-expression. For twenty years, our model for supporting these yearnings in young people has fostered the development of compassion and character, humility and excellence, and skills for collaboration and dialogue that are essential for a just democracy and a sustainable world.

Welcome to a growing group of people who want to discuss wellness and the often overlooked “spirit dimension” of the whole person.

The Six Dimensions of Wellness, described by the National Wellness Institute, are: intellectual, physical, emotional, spiritual, social and occupational. Here, spiritual is defined as “the search for inner strength, meaning and purpose in human existence.” Research indicates that adolescents are seeking ways to deepen their spirit dimension.
