2015 C2E Highlights

Happy New Year to all! Here goes what has become a tradition as I feel complete with the year when I take the time to recollect the highlights of the year and I’m always so glad I do! Below are a collection of albums that will make a little more sense when you read the narrative below each of them.

May you be all passionately in love with LIFE!! Allow the dramas to become your victories, your losses to become personal growth, your rejections God protections, and your deaths your re-birth.

Cheers!!! Happy 2016!

Working with PKWellness in Santa Monica as consultant and trainer for their first suspension yoga team was a great experience.

Having all star Puerto Rican Soul Sister and Pilates Coach, Angie Dalmau was Work-N-Fun at it’s best!!! Our unique and generous FREE Front Lawn Fitness was a fantastic season of giving to our community and getting to know a few of our neighbors.

Summer Youth Program was a LIVING workshop where, like in a reality show, we kind of lost track between what was business, art, family, friends, uncles, workshop, recording session, creative funks, as well as genius…I mean, it was what I would call C2E LIVE!!! Teaching Animal Flow to 8 Youths, them learning it, and us being able to do it together a few times, was one of those many moments I wish the Angels surrounding this place would have cameras ON! Joanna’s Dance Class was like graduation day for this program as well as our beautiful C2E Tank designed by India. Joanna and India were the youth soul sister dynamic duo and it was beautiful to see them inspiring each other to create, challenge themselves, and keep their commitments.

Oh and what about creating a business plan for our first Dream Maker Program project! Nancy Hawkins right along with Janice, Maureen, and Marlene were my Supernatural Productions Queens!!! I guess you had to be there…but for the record, this energy must be recorded.

The beautiful Field Trips to JoAnn’s Art Studio as well as Sunset Yoga Hikes with Nikki Olson. AND even shopping Field Trips to the unique and super shopping fun The-T Room owned by another Rican sister, Tanya Soler!! Epaaaaaa! No wonder I end up planning  E X P E D I T I O N : PUERTO RICO with no other than my dear Equinox colleague and Get Out Be Fit’s Nikki Olson (yes again! Nikki from Field Trip Hikes..see what happens when you go to Sunset Yoga every month??? You get blessed!)

We had two wild and amazing things happen to the Villa. First one being that we got a new dome cover! We went from type look to greenhouse look and it feels and looks amazing!! Total Upgrade! Thanks to the Angels! Literally! Second Villa happening was the front’s Micro Living Project, which is a total work in progress and Supernatural production’s new pet project, since that’s the ONLY way is going to happen.

Another memorable event was having my son, Yalan McCullough and his parter/childhood friend Ben Gottlieb produce their first Tones event at the Villa. Easy Living Productions, Yalan & Ben’s empowering young artists project, had a very successful event and are already planning another one.

I was truly honored this year when the client I trained for her wedding, called me years later to train her for her first baby!! We experience magic working together via Skype with workouts and Guided Meditations. It was a unique experience assisting this two beautiful souls to connect heart to heart when she dove into her sacred inner space during meditations. Priceless!! She was born super healthy and my client is in pure family bliss.

Another awesome highlight was our Tribe Assembly and it’s wonderful outcome of C2E finally landing in another Non-Profit that would welcome C2E to train it’s participants in self-sufficiency. Friends of the Family is a 44 year old non-profit who has dedicated their mission to helping families thrive. This mission of helping families learn how to live functional lives, is very dear to my heart, specially this year, where I truly understood that family is sacred. That the bond of the family is as no other and when the ties are broken, life can become a very lonely place. I was honored to have Program Coordinator, beautiful Noemi Watanabe, welcoming my ideas after being introduced by C2E Tribe supporter and dear friend Connie Cohen (who, by the way, reinvented herself this year and got her Real Estate License combined with Professional Organizing & Decorator angles!! AND she wants to helps seniors dealing with property! Sorry, I could write another article about her!) Ok, I must be close to done with highlights…

Oh the Christmas Party!! Thanks to Vicki and Norma of coarse since I’ve been checked out in vision quest land getting the new strategy for C2E’s 2016. The party was so lovely and perfect!! Vicki has been a true pillar of strength for me this year in so many ways. Her role as a Board Member, Time Bank Manager, ALL her Advice, TONS of patience, consistency in coming to class, heart to serve (which has been my guiding light in getting there myself), and last but not least Christmas Party Coordinator! And Norma, Norma, Norma, her heart for the holidays was infused to the Villa this Winter Season. She brought her magic and it was truly like wonderland in the Villa this Christmas!

Teaching with Marc Spencer in SOKA University was another highlight I will always cherish. Conscious Commerce is a deep passion of mine, and I’m always honored to be asked to teach about it.

Oh one more!! Yes! Teaching a Meditation Class at my client’s Julee Rich’s church, Sheperd of the Valley and their Stephen’s Ministry Continuing Education Program.

I can’t leave the highlight of the Reset Cleanse where I got to record some Guided Meditations and offer it all together as a little package! The project didn’t take off for some reason, but I sure enjoyed doing the recordings with lovely Ivana, who’s voice melted our hearts!

My SOS Poster Child Award goes to…..drumroll please!……Nickey Collier!!! All I gotta say is go read her SOS Testimonial, which gave me incentive and inspiration for about another 5 years. So everybody, thank Nickey by following her awesome journey in the Aids Life Cycle Ride to end Aids, which she has taken on right after 2 months of training with me in the SOS Program. AND then she fell on July 4th because she felt sooo good in her body that she was confident that her new superpowers would keep her safe. BUT she recovered perfectly fine, and got back on that saddle as if there was no tomorrow!

The last highlight that comes up for me is the EPIC 5-Day Dance Challenge we had in May! I am so grateful for the courageous local tribe who participated such as Daniel, Nancy, Marlana, Janice, Miranda, and all the global soul brothers and sisters who dove in with Passion. Susanne Schmidt, Yoshi Arima, Roisin, and Malika Love, who gave us her intuitive gift so beautifully! Sweden, Denmark, New Zealand, Canada and England where all represented with flying colors!! Priceless!

Ok! I pray that exactly what needed to be said, was said, it’s funny, I could really keep going, but I’m tired. I’m pulling the first all nighter I’ve done in a while! But I had a determined obsession to have this done before January 1st!

So filled with gratitude for all who played with me in my Tribe Planet. It’s actually a bit overwhelming to see how much it was done in such little time! 2016 is calling me to UNBROKEN FOCUS. I’m diving to a season where I’m going to believe in myself a little more, embrace fully who I am, and believe that I AM the experience I’ve created for myself for the past 10 years n the fitness industry. I’m grateful for numbers and the confidence they provide when you know you have reached 10,ooo training sessions! I’m celebrating this achievement by letting it all out in 2016!

May you be all passionately in love with LIFE!! Allow the dramas to become your victories, your losses to become personal growth, your rejections God protections, and your deaths your re-birth.

Cheers!!! Happy 2016!
