You will connect with your personal power in a new way so you can be healthier, happier and feel whole. The movements can be performed in your home, care facilities, office, school, gym, fitness classes and group sessions. Youth, adults, and seniors enjoy practicing the movements which strengthen their bodies, calm their minds and energize their spirit. Experience the I Matter Meditative Movement™ and see how you feel.
The I Am Loved Meditative Movement™ aligns your mind, your body and your being with life's mystery. Love is here. We can affirm this for ourselves and tap into it at any time.
When your mind is overwhelmed, it can easily think lack and fearful thoughts. Because of the mind body connection, you can then feel anxious, lost and powerless. To move you into a place of peace and calm, perform the I Am Loved Meditative Movement™. Feel the love that exists within you.
Your life experiences are unique to you. At one time or another, we have all had interactions with others that seem unloving. Sometimes we act unloving to ourselves. We are still loveable.
I believe this is our purpose on earth. To learn to love and respect ourselves. When we allow love to flow through us, we can give that same unconditional love freely to others.
This is the gift you can give to yourself. You can see, feel, think, taste, smell, hear, and touch love in everything.
If you like practicing the movement and want to challenge yourself, join us for our upcoming Free Loving Yourself Meditative Movement™ Challenge.

The University of Minnesota Occupational Therapy Department feasibility research study concluded that Meditative Movements™ may be effective in reducing anxiety, depression, and fatigue, while improving emotional and functional well-being for persons with chronic health conditions. The findings suggest that Meditative Movements™ may be used as an alternative and complementary therapy or rehabilitation program for persons with chronic health conditions.
Chronic diseases and conditions such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, obesity, and arthritis are among the most common, costly, and preventable of all health problems.
The prevention and management of chronic health conditions is a major challenge for the current health care system. There is growing evidence that complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) have beneficial effects for managing the many symptoms of chronic health conditions. Use of CAM to improve health and well-being has increased over the years (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2007). American adults are most likely to use CAM for problems such as stress, fatigue, and pain.
When asked what was most beneficial, research participants responded.
|More calm||Better sleep||Feel more positive about self||Less negative attitude||More confidence||Less tired, more energy|
