The AUMM Gym ~ (Active Urge & Mood Management) is an- "active" meditation in motion- as opposed to -"passive" sitting- meditation.
It's great for those who have a difficulty with traditional sitting meditation yet works well for those who do also like to sit.
You'll literally feel lighter as the world and it's worries melt away.
Based on KuTng Fu/Tai-Chi Gong it's an inner and outer dance with resistance that puts you in a hyper present peaceful state.
It 's a compassionate playful practice, process & path of "The Inward Warrior", an Emotional & Mental Wellness Warrior.
It's Self-Defense against your Self-Defeating, Self-Sabotaging, Self-(& other)-Destructive
subconscious Thoughts, Feelings, Actions, Addictions & Habits.
It's immediately beneficial during and after practice!
...and did I mention it's addictively fun?
Focusing on Vagal Nerve Tone & MidPrefrontal Cortex Fitness it helps Redesign your Default Mind.
Like becoming a great Gardener who uproots their own emotional rocks and weeds,
(the causes of Stress, Trauma, Anger, Anxiety, Depression, Procrastination, ADD/HD, Addiction)
to plant, joy, productive ideas & habits...seeds!!!
It's reverse engineered evolution & enlightenment...
...to end negative habits & behaviors, that lead to pain, poverty & dis-ease (which are "all symptoms").
The AUMM Gym upgrades your "Internal Operating System" (Mind/Being) allowing you to
wisely self-manage/self (& co)regulate for patient poise under pressure,
increased health & prosperity as well as deeper intimate connection!
~All this while growing & staying younger & stronger longer truly living
your Vision your WHY!, your Big WHY!! aka your Sacred Assignment!
..and yes I was, at birth, named after the Evangelist Preacher Billy Sunday!
My journey to serve you began over 40 years ago when I was a 12yr. old artistic nerd whose father died 8yrs earlier, as a civilian, saving kids from a fire.
I was dragged to the gym to learn to box by my uncle, my mother's brother, who was also ex-military. He once defeated Jake Lamotta, was ranked 3rd in the world and was friends with Rocky Marciano. When I was 16, I lost my mother to cancer (she was 55). I later lost my younger brother at 37 who alcoholically drank through, not one but two kidney transplants. I later realized the fight she bravely lost wasn't to cancer nor my brother's to alcoholism or kidney failure. Those, like most diseases, diabetes (which my grandmother after having both legs amputated passed from), were symptoms ...
subconscious shadows we all in ways fight losing battles against.
Living and training in China and Japan I found the real issue we face is an inability of our system to deal with (di)stress, especially due to attachment trauma, as we age and our (Chi/libido) hormones and immune systems decline. I noticed as well it's easier for people to gain weight and harder to lose it, easier to get sick and harder to recover as they age. This is often perpetuated by crippling emotional trauma that also impedes our ability to create and sustain healthier habits. It's exacerbated by and often contributes to a lack or loss of ability to feel or give love, intimacy, romance and the truly healing habits and practices you must obtain and maintain that create, increase and support your healthspan. (Your healthspan is your highly functional joyous life,
doing what you love with who you love free from pain,
discomfort and disease, physical, mental & emotional!)
My time in Asia provided me with understanding and discipline, a type of Spiritual Chivalry when married with my own seeking and studying the teachings of Jesus, Rumi, Joseph Campbell, Osho & others while deeply honoring the Feminine & Divine Goddess. This I merged w/relentless studies of Interpersonal Neurobiology, Polyvagal Theory, addiction, attachment/trauma, telomeres, psychoneuroimmunoendocrinology, nutrition & supplementation. I've also embraced & employed aspects of CBT(Cognitive Behavioral Therapy)/ DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy)/ MI (Motivational Interviewing)/ ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy) as well as Schema Therapy & Ego Adaptation all while appreciating AA and what it's done for so many for so long.
~I am deeply honored by and committed to participating in your seeing and being better than your best for yourself and those you love!!
In my practice I specialize in and settle for nothing less than the deep practice of World Class Wellness & High End Health for those I serve who demand such for themselves. I spent years in Entertainment, esp. in China & Japan, then after understanding, as with myself, the pain of those frequenting clubs, transitioned to the Healing Arts. Upon return to the States, I managed & trained in High End Spas of Miami Beach then witnessing what is expected of exemplary service for those whose wellbeing and lifestyles supported livelihoods for others. My clients were executives, high end real estate people and ultimately, as well, psychologists & psychotherapists. I eventually tested my process & practice in a High End Addiction Clinic finding we are all human and can and will at some point require help to grow, not only beyond who we've been but beyond who we, or others, believed we could.
A bad habit, worse an addiction, is something you *can not - not* do.
ADD & ADHD occur because you have not found what you love~ to focus on~
to invest your attention and energy in. Both Addiction and ADD are themselves phantoms of the limbic system, Since action follows being this means in not doing what you love you cannot be BEing who you truly are.
This is your soul starving ~in Divine Discontent, Sacred Longing,
Existential Agony from not being wired for "WHY" you're here,
from not living in Alignment with your Sacred Assignment.
The symbol above means patience & perseverance under duress. It literally means even with a knife at your heart you continue to do what you are called, meant, anointed, Spiritually Assigned to do! As Rumi says, "No agony, no ecstasy!".. no birth without the discomfort of it. Yet as Florence Scovell Shinn, Neville Goddard & Wallace D. Wattles through Scripture, Scrolls (the teachings of Jesus) and that of many Eastern Masters (ie Buddha) have alluded to..it's all by "Divine Design" a "Game". It's all Lila, God's Game as the ancient Hindus called it. You don't stop playing because you get old, you get old because you stop playing... stop growing, stop learning, stop loving.
There's no word for retirement in Hebrew...
This is also the key to "Reversing Aging"!!
Never stop playing! In the Hebrew there is no word for retirement, retired mind. Your Vagus Nerve calms you thru your Midprefrontal Cortex which monitors, manages and modulates your mind amidst the Maya, the illusion of "appearances"... the symptoms of dis-ease, pain, poverty and addiction which are cured by you connected to Source (religare) living in Alignment with your Sacred Assignment. In doing so you achieve the byproducts of health & wealth thru discerning wisdom & service. Your body remains young, strong, supple & sexy and your mind wise & clear! The "Pad Play" and preparatory exercises of The AUMM Gym are designed to help you thrive as you confidently live this!
Now at age 54, the most important thing I realize is that if anything we learn is to be beneficial long term, (think New Year's Resolutions), it must essentially be neurobiologically downloaded and constantly upgraded in our mind. I've learned to make this a FUN, playful & compassionate practice process you'll love no matter what you've been through or will go through. This happens because you're always learning about and to accept and understand YOUrself, who and how you've been and why. Your mistakes and failures are fertilizer! They are not only welcomed, they're recycled, transformed, (maybe cried about) but usually and eventually chuckled at (by you) as you realize it's all a necessary part of your process. We uproot your psychological rocks and weeds then plant and nurture seeds that feed you as you grow younger and healthier (build muscle/lose fat/gain heart, spirit & soul). Best of all is when you do this in a growth based partnership you're in or are preparing for ~because for health, love & wealth you must become what you want to attract & retain!
