Learn From Teri's Personal Journey Back to Balance!

Almost 15 years ago, at age 45, I experienced first hand the realities and also limitations of my world of traditional medicine. My path to healing was long and painful, but in the process changed my views about healthcare and the importance of living a balanced life. Like many women in the boomer generation, I had embraced my newfound career opportunities with zealot energy, along with the need for my daily exercise of speed running. I thought I was healthy, but I was out of balance. I hit a wall when I experienced a major hip injury by tearing the ligaments that hold our hips in alignment. I was in chronic pain, and I was the only one who could help me heal - I needed to slow down, go inside myself, and make major life changes. Having been a business strategic planner actually helped me see the need to develop a life change/balance plan. I reevaluated my life, changed priorities, turned inward and to meditation and spirituality for answers. My journey to recovery also led me to seek help from my amazing Greatest Generation dad - who became a major part of my healing process.

His own miracle survival story became my inspiration and example and brought me not only closer to him but with a healthier focus on achieving balance in my life.

The journey led to my writing a book about this "change-of-life" experience and about my dad. On God's Wings tells the story of the miracle survival of my Air Force pilot Dad and the amazing lessons he passed on to me. It was a wonderful journey for me and my dad to tour together to tell this story and inspire others. For more information check out www.ongodswings.com.
