tranquility du jour #187: insight life design


Bonjour. Welcome to the 187th edition of Tranquility du Jour: A Guide to Bringing Tranquility to your Every Day. Today’s show features happenings and musings on insight life design with Nona Jordan.

Workshops + Retreats: Consider joining moi for a week long Yoga Lifestyle Retreat in lush Costa Rica May 29-June 5, LA and Portland June 23-28 (details here), a Tranquilista Retreat at Kripalu July 5-9, Denver workshops July 16-17, Texas in August (details to come), and a Yoga Retreat in India November 12-21.

Tranquilista Lifestyle: Joie de Vivre: Join me for a 7-week e-course focusing on the outlined in Tranquilista. Our six sessions will highlight ways to shape your world with spirituality, do-gooding, creativity, style, and entrepreneurship. Launches June 23.

Featured Tranquilista: Nona Jordan is a professional coach, writer, mom, and yogini who works with modern, fully-engaged, women who are struggling to find calm and connect to purpose in their beautiful, crazy life. Trained by Martha Beck, Nona gave up her cubicle and a 10-year corporate accounting career to help others find a new perspective in their busy lives through coaching, meditation, and yoga.

For Nona, these practices, plus coaching, were catalysts. By incorporating these practices into her life, she experienced increased calm, and connection to a deep reserve of inner resources that changed every area of her life. Nona has found that overwhelm, pressure and the dissatisfaction that women often feel, are a reminder to take a step back and look at life with fresh eyes. The more closely we can align our actions with purpose, the more our very existence changes the world.

Nona is an entrepreneur who lives in Rome, Italy. Her husband, Erick, is an officer of the United States Air Force, serving as a military diplomat to Italy. She has one 5-year old daughter, Clara, who has spent each of her birthdays in a different country. Both Erick and Nona are self-proclaimed foodies and travel-lovers.
