Screen shot 2015-01-04 at 10.11.07 AM C2E’s Dream Maker Project (DMP) is an initiative to inspire, and engage people in the act of actually taking leaps of faith to carry out their dreams. We believe that it is in our dreams and visions for ourselves that we hold the solutions for a sustainable planet. We kicked off our first DMP with a wonderful field trip to Cal-Earth Institute yesterday and I must say that we filled our inspiration tanks to start Dr. Kalec’s Dream: The Peace Dome with fantastic momentum!!

Dr. Kalec and her amazing enthusiasm gathered a group of architects and sustainability enthusiasts to go check out what was once Nader Khalili’s dream, to build and test earth architecture prototypes that will educate people globally on how to empower themselves to be able to build with their own hands sustainable housing. I was drawn to this kind of architecture at first because it has the same look and feel as C2E’s Villa, and I’ve been trying to figure out how to build a little cottage for my Mom in our property, but the more I learn about the amazing benefits of building with earth, the more understanding I get about why I’ve been so drawn to it. It comes down to the three principles of Cal-Earth’s Mission:

1. shelter is a basic human right

2. every human being should be able to build a house for themselves and their family

3. the best way to provide shelter for the exponentially increasing human population is by building with earth

How is health and fitness related to all this?

Physiological needs are the physical requirements for human survival. If these requirements are not met, the human body cannot function properly and will ultimately fail. Physiological needs are thought to be the most important; they should be met first. Air, water, and food are metabolic requirements for survival in all animals, including humans. Clothing and shelter provide necessary protection from the elements. It is almost impossible to reach self-optimization and actualization without these basic needs met, and in the economic state that we have been in during the last few years, is very obvious that housing has become a critical concern for ALL, regardless of socio-economic backgrounds.

It is empowering to KNOW that there are other options that are not only safer and way more durable than traditional architecture, but also completely affordable. These options also bring a lot of peace of mind, and we intend to continue exploring this path.

We will be doing another field trip to Cal-Earth soon, so if you feel drawn, please e-mail mayra@coach2edify.org in order to keep you posted!

In so much gratitude,

Mayra

The Co-Creative Culture

Comments Off

c2a6619424bee00bcd43f301f1dc3413As you may all know, I’m addicted to being inspired! I seek inspiration daily and in the past year, one of my greatest sources of inspiration has been the topic of Conscious Evolution. What does that have to do with FITNESS??? EVERYTHING!!!! The smartest way I have experienced getting fit is by addressing our personal evolution as a whole. Our personal evolution depends highly on integration, not balance. Personal integration of body, mind, spirit first, then integration with our families and communities. We have been learning about balance to achieve wholeness for the past decade or so…and now is time to bring it all together to create the heaven on earth we have been promised! I’m evolving to become a social architect whose passion is highly driven by finding JOY in everything. As I troubleshoot C2E’s models of collaboration to find the most joyful, productive, effortless, and stress free working environments, I’ve come across the concept of Co-Creative Cultures. During my recent class with Barbara Marx Hubbard, The Sacred Journey of the Conscious Evolutionary, she introduced the concept of the Co-Creative Culture after 6 intensive months of personal evolution processes. Now I’m diving into her Co-Creators Rising class which started yesterday!! For any of you interested in the subject, I have created a little 5 page handout with all I learned during my introduction to the subject. If you feel drawn to this subject and find yourself wanting to do more with this idea, PLEASE EMAIL ME (mayra@coach2edify.org) or leave a comment here below! I’ve included a list of Co-Creators’ Agreement which can come very handy to anybody managing groups of people.

The Co-Creative Community


Coach2Edify: 501(C)(3) for Community Wellness

As Coach2Edify (C2E) evolves, our concept gains more clarity and structure, and our original mission of creating health and wellness becomes both fulfilled and fulfilling. I’m grateful for the rich tapestry of life benefits we offer our community. We create a culture where self-sufficiency in personal care of body, mind, and spirit is second nature.

C2E is a 501(C)(3) non-profit corporation dedicated to improving community wellness. Our primary purpose is to “edify” others through one-on-one fitness consultations, nutrition coaching, life coaching, and group classes. Why did we choose to organize as a 501(C)(3) Nonprofit?

A benefit of our organization as a 501(C)(3) means that our clients–whether corporate or individual–can write off 50% of the cost of our services. Getting healthy while getting a tax benefit!? That’s a win-win situation.

C2E benefactors are those who purchase training programs. When benefactors invest in themselves through C2E, they are also investing in the community by making a way to offer currency-free training to those who are low in cash flow. This currency-free program is called The C2E Tribe Program. Program participants can receive training using the time bank concept of exchange: for every hour of training received, they give one hour of their time to C2E. This program is offered quarterly to a new group of participants. We are currently receiving applications for the Summer Quarter, and have the capacity for seven participants each quarter.

Creating platforms for Transformational Leaders on the Rise is another C2E mission. Transformational Leaders are those passionate about facilitating transformation in order to overcome crisis, whether physical or spiritual. We call this resonance Supernatural Production. That’s when we tap to that frequency where we feel supported by the universe in all that we do: that place where we are connected to the flow of nature. I feel it personally when I’m very in tune with my meditation practice. Schedules work themselves out, people come to you with exactly what you need, and you seem to find rock star parking everywhere!

Tap into the flow! To learn more about becoming a benefactor, participant or coach at C2E, please feel free to contact C2E President Mayra McCullough, mayra@coach2edify.org.
