I'm an accomplished musician, artist, and writer from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Part of my living I make running my own business - writing eBooks, doing massage therapy (shiatsu and Reiki), and teaching traditional martial arts (Aikido and Tai Qi), as well as health and wellness consultations and seminars around the area.
Music, writing, and health are my true passions - I have been interested in them as long as I can remember. My family is full of writers - my father, as well as uncle and Aunt on my dad's side, all have books published, and my father is a journalist in Grand Rapids. I myself am currently finishing up my first book, titled: Returning to the Sacred - How to Achieve True Happiness in our Crazy Modern World - you could say I'm following closely in their footsteps.
I started a business last year called BE YOU NOW, all about helping people to achieve their true potential mentally, physically and spiritually. The entire program and vision will come to fruition in the Be You Now book, which is set to be released in 2015, but I have already begun utilizing the philosophy and practices from the book/program in my healing work and other projects. I was a Chinese Studies major at Grand Valley State University, and have written extensively on topics ranging from Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ancient Chinese literature, to philosophical and ethical issues facing the Eastern and Western world in the 21st century.
A good deal of my serious writing is on my blog (honey182.wordpress.com) - as well as some of my more fun ramblings - and a lot of information about my business, as well as the healing services I offer and the BE YOU NOW project are on my website (www.beyounow.co).
