Back in November, when I was a speaker at Health Coach Mastery Conference at Club Med Sandpiper Bay, I just HAD to go on the trapeze. I had a great time flying through the air last year at Club Med and I LOVED the rush of pushing through my fears and just doing it.

Here is the video of me on the trapeze:

But wouldn’t you know…As soon as I climbed off of the net, I stumbled upon my dismount and broke my left wrist and sprained my knee (fortunately AFTER my conference presentations were over!).

Lucky for me, I was surrounded by the most loving, caring group of Health Coaches who sprung into action to help me:

  • Cathy Brown Sykora, founder of the Health Coach Group, came up with a plan.
  • Randi Wexler Dukoff, who was also a speaker, located a nearby Urgent Care.
  • Gary Sykora (Cathy’s husband) drove me to be x-rayed and treated.
  • Keynote speaker Penni Shelton helped me get my dinner and walk back to my room.
  • Dr. Peter Rugg, a Functional Medicine ER doc, gave me curcumin (a natural anti-inflammatory spice) and medical reassurance.
  • Patti Rugg offered Reiki healing – and Dr. Rugg, Penni, and Kat Ogar joined in.
  • Chel Hamilton, meditation expert, helped me put on my sweater (seriously – I couldn’t even do that myself!)
  • Debbie LeFever, the event photographer, took this gorgeous photo.
  • Soooo many others at the event offered concern and support.



What a gift it was to be surrounded by loving Health Coaches (and a doctor!) who used holistic healing to complement the splint and ice on my wounds.

I could feel the kindness and healing energy come through my injured knee up through my body through my heart chakra. It was such a blessing to receive.

Right after I came home, I got this pretty hot pink cast! (This photo was taken driving back from the orthopedic surgeon back in November.)



Over the past 2.5 months, I learned to type on half of my keyboard with one finger (ha!), retrain my wrist, and regain flexibility.

And, of course, I broke my LEFT arm and I am left-handed. It is not surprising at all that my left arm was affected because the left side of the body is the “feminine” side – associated with graciousness, ease, and RECEIVING.

I realized how humbling it is to receive support during a time of need – to truly RECEIVE from others.

What I’ve learned from this experience is that it truly does take a village. We need to ask for, and be willing to receive help, because we can’t do it all alone.

Only THEN can we be more, create more, live more – and have the FREEDOM to do what it is that we truly want to do in our businesses and in our lives!

Because so many of those beautiful coaches supported me, I want to pay it forward by sharing with you some of the AMAZING coaches I adore so you can receive their goodness!
