Penny Plautz

By day I am a college administrator so I can support my writing and coaching habit.  What I’ve learned from being around students is we’re never too old to learn or become the people we  imagined we could be.

With that in mind, a few years ago completed a life-changing, 8-month Eating Psychology Coaching Certification program through the Institute for the Psychology of Eating.

The big thing I’m doing now that I haven’t done before is use tapping or EFT (emotional freedom technique) to move a lot of emotions that I previously kept under wraps. The good thing about this is I’ve also got a lot of really great friends and clients who are willing to experiment with tapping and we’re all seeing significant shifts and enjoying some unprecedented success is key areas of our lives.

My monthly mastermind group, Practicing Everyday Alchemy, is a place where I learn to be vulnerable, take risks, and practice my skills as a shaman-in-training with amazing alchemists in three countries.

In the last year I’ve also become a Wildflower and a Rockstar, training with a couple of most innovative coaches working today.

Although I consider myself an early adopter on most things, it often takes me longer to embrace other things, like marriage, and home ownership.  So I find myself at midlife, engaged for the first time and blogging about home improvement projects and the adventures that await me now that I’m a certain age.

These blog posts are my attempt of making sense of my journey so far. What you’ll find here is a mixed bag of my experience as a fitness professional, health and wellness consultant, creativity coach, continuous spiritual seeker, wannabe stand up comedienne and musician, nature lover, companion to canines, and matchmaker.  My stories make their way across the country and back with some curious stops in between.

Here’s hoping this creatively quirky combo will spark some recognition, humor, insights, and I-can-so-relate moments for you.

Thanks for stopping by. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome.

    Penny I always knew you’d do a blog like this. I remember seeing the building blocks 30 years ago when we were friends at unit. Your sunny outlook on life has maintained which I find amazing. I was wondering who you go to when you need a life coach or a pep talk? perk

      Hey Perk! When I need a coach or pep talk, which is daily, I look to books, music, art, TED talks, funny friends, and energy workers. I spend a lot of time with animals, since they are such amazing teachers of unconditional love. I’ve often said if I move and write every day, I’ll be okay. If I don’t exercise my body and mind then I get funky. A little time outside everyday also does wonders for my spirit. I look at my personal evolution as a practice, not a perfect. So at this point in my life, I have many days of practice to fall back on. 🙂
