Summer is going full blast while we settle into being in Schaumburg full time. 
So, what's next?
Those who are familiar with Access Consciousness Bars will have heard about “living life in the question” and “in 10 second increments.” 
Practitioners of Access Consciousness believe that when you put a period at the end of a sentence, you make it finite. 
By living life in the question, posed to the universe, and/or whatever your belief, you open yourself up to infinite possibilities. Sometimes I think of the Rolling Stones lyrics: "You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometime, well, you might find you get what you need."

This is not a cognitive answer that you are creating. This is about watching, listening, waiting, and feeling what else is possible. Utilizing your intuition to help guide you. Frequently, our conscious minds get in the way and can talk us out of some really wonderful things. Or, we become so stuck on what we want that we completely miss an opportunity that would have exceeded our expectations. 
Right now, we are focused on establishing ourselves as an integral part of the Schaumburg integrative health and wellness community, and creating new possibilities for this next phase of CCHW. Living in the question and seeing what else is possible for CCHW. We are doing our best to listen closely to the needs of our clients, students, and community.
We have a wonderful relationship with the Center for New Pathways, our neighbor in Schaumburg, and are looking forward to working with them in new capacities. We have yet to nail down a date, but we will be co-hosting an open house with them in the fall.
What else is possible?
What energy, space and consciousness can we be, to be the biggest contribution to each other?
If you could choose one thing, what would it be?
What would it take to be the you that you can truly be?
