Faith-Based Health and Wellness Coaching, Consulting, Education, and Training Services
"To challenge, educate, empower, and inspire individuals and corporate entities to pay closer attention to whole-person health and wellness. Healthy individuals are more productive and make greater contributions to society, as well as the organizations they serve. A critical component of whole-person health and wellness is a strong commitment to a faith-based lifestyle and sacred purpose. Life for those who have a compelling reason to exist is far more enjoyable than for those who do not. Each of us is created and uniquely molded with greatness in mind. This is most effectively accomplished through earnest efforts toward spiritual growth."
If you are looking for help with achieving your goals, leaving a positive footprint on society, and living in accordance with sacred purpose, then prepare yourself to embark upon a very exciting journey together. Age of Discovery offers individual life coaching and corporate consulting services that are specifically designed to meet the unique needs of the client.
Our coaching services focus on a particular segment of the population, those who have reached the age and stage where they understand that the meaningfulness of life far exceeds our individual experiences and self gratification. Each of us was created for sacred purpose, and this is best accomplished when there is a burning desire to actively engage in self improvement and harmonious living. Age of Discovery is a lifestyle coaching model that promotes lifelong vitality and productivity. We specialize in the areas of whole-person health and wellness, life purpose, personal growth and development, relationship dynamics, spirituality, and women's empowerment. Lifelong vitality and productivity is so much more than the absence of illness, disease, or debilitating conditions. It is a lifestyle choice and a conscious decision to make legacy and purpose a priority. We humans are multidimensional, and we live life on a number of levels within the physical and spiritual realms of our being. Every experience impacts the totality of who we are, and how we respond to these experiences will absolutely determine who we have the potential to become.
Life offers a variety of choices about how we spend our time. We are living longer and many of us are opting to continue working well beyond the traditional retirement age. Others are pursuing deferred dreams that were put on hold years ago in favor of obtaining secure jobs and raising a family. We have finally reached a point in life where we can wipe the dust off our tattered bucket lists and focus on such endeavors as furthering our education, starting that business we always dreamed of owning, establishing an active social life, strengthening ties with our children, spending more time with the grands and great-grands, traveling, establishing an exercise regimen that we can actually stick to, developing a stronger spiritual practice, or leaving a legacy of service and contribution to society.
The U.S. Census Bureau predicts that average life expectancy in the United States will be in the mid-80s by 2050, which is up from 77.85 in 2006. The Census Bureau also predicts that the United States will have 5.3 million people over age 100 by 2100. The United Nations projects that life expectancies in most developed countries will be between 100 and 106 years by 2300. This information has tremendous promise for those who opt to remain actively engaged in life and further choose to continue enjoying its exciting and challenging offerings well into elderhood.
Under the umbrella of coaching, our core purpose is the help you develop an understanding of and appreciation for the fundamental principles of lifelong wellness from a spiritual, whole-person perspective. Armed with this information and insight, you will be empowered to make decisions that support the goals and ideals you set for yourself.

What is Health & Wellness Coaching?
Health and Wellness Coaches partner with clients seeking self-directed, lasting changes, aligned with their values, which promote health and wellness and, thereby, enhance well-being. In the course of their work, health and wellness coaches display unconditional positive regard for their clients and a belief in their capacity for change, and honoring that each client is an expert on his or her life, while ensuring that all interactions are respectful and non-judgmental.
International Consortium for Health and Wellness Coaching
Journalist and health activist Dan Buettner spent years investigating extraordinary locations around the world, called Blue Zones, where people commonly live to 100 plus. His outstanding work supports other research which proves that when lifestyle practices and environmental factors are coordinated in support of overall wellness, people can and do live longer, healthier lives.
From a corporate perspective, public and private sector entities benefit tremendously when they take responsibility for creating a culture of individual and group wellness. Governmental policies and organizational programs and practices can foster innovations that greatly improve the health status of America's workforce. For example, there are many well documented statistics that confirm corporate wellness programs:
- Decrease employee absenteeism
- Improve employee productivity
- Reduce employer health care costs
Individuals are more likely to make healthy choices when it is easier to do so. Implementing and supporting corporate wellness programs is an effective way for businesses to build a culture of health and wellness. It is a smart financial investment and employees appreciate the effort. A 2013 Aflac Workforce Report confirms employee job satisfaction is higher when their employers offer wellness programs. Age of Discovery consults with public and private sector employers who are committed to innovative strategies which improve employee health and raise their job satisfaction levels.
Whole-person wellness is multidimensional and it requires a synergistic relationship between individuals and the corporate structures that are established to support wellness goals. Age of Discovery was created to increase awareness of and appreciation for this critical connection. Through coaching, consultation, education and training, private partnerships, and public policy development and administration, it is entirely possible to establish workable frameworks to address the critical health and wellness challenges we face in today's world.
From a personal perspective, individuals must take responsibility for their own wellbeing. Age of Discovery is structured around the core belief that everyone has the potential to self-actualize. We understand that all meaningful change is the product of internal behavioral and cognitive intention and commitment. However, experience has taught us two crucial lessons. First, sometimes people need to be reminded of the profound power that accompanies believing in themselves, and secondly, they must set their hearts and minds toward purposeful living and being. If it is my sincere intention, for example, to eat right, move more, and reduce stress, I must be committed to strategies which alter the bad habits that created my current unsatisfactory circumstance. Through our unique brand of whole-person wellness training, we offer you the tools and techniques required to tap into the vast resources you have at your disposal. Further, we help you determine how to apply your newly acquired skills to everyday situations. Life can be exciting and full of joy, but it requires focus, attention, and intention, as well as being awake and aware.
The creative process gives us the tools we need to thrive. Our task is to find that sacred space within us where we connect the dots; everything comes together; and the good, the bad, and the ugly aspects of our life make sense. Through coaching, inspirational messaging, seminars, and workshops, Age of Discovery will help you find that internal sweet spot where greatness resides. The transformative strategies we offer will rejuvenate your heart, mind, and soul. The fullest expression of this transcendence will manifest itself through enhanced relationships that are built on love, trust, authenticity, faith in a higher and more holy calling, and loyalty. The euphoria of internal greatness positions us to serve ourselves well by serving others.
