Introducing myself and my journal: The Lotus Effect

About Me:
Hello! My name is Jenn Pretious Koh. I am a Heart-centred Social Mompreneur, Coach, Healer and Dancer.
I had the good fortune of being born in Mbabane, Swaziland in Africa. I grew up, was schooled in, and worked for most of my adult life in South Africa. Almost 5 years ago, circumstances brought me to Calgay, Canada, where I now live with my 2 precious sons.

My passion, personal experience and belief in the healing power of art, dance, music, alternative healing therapies, yoga, meditation, women's circles and storytelling and a burning desire to give back and make a difference has brought me dancing into this space. I am currently midwifing into existence the birthing of my personal vision of creating global physical and virtual healing, arts retreats and cultural-arts festivals for underprivileged women around the world, where a privileged woman is able to participate in a virtual and/or physical retreat while sponsoring an underprivileged sister.

PWPI is a space in which women can rediscover who they are, remember their purpose, regain self-esteem and dance back into their communities with a belief in infinite possibilities and renewed strength and courage. The retreat is a springboard from which women will form celebration hubs where they will gather regularly with other women to inspire, encourage and support one another. We aim to connect women with grassroots organizations which empower women through skills development and micro-lending programs so that women can build sustainable businesses within their communities for example: marketing and selling their products internationally through fair trade.

This is our vision, this is the world we see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPe2xgRStZA

I look forward to connecting and collaborating with you.

My Passions:
Empowering women, art, healing, dance, meditation, yoga

My Challenges:
Financial resources & time (as a single mompreneur!)

My Vision for the Future:

Hello from World Pulse. You

Hello from World Pulse.

You have reached out to World Pulse, and we are grateful for your presence.

I act as a volunteer World Pulse welcomer for new WP members and listener for other journal entries. This is some of the most exciting and rewarding work I've ever done. Through this effort, I have become a world volunteer.

I am wondering whether you have found any World Pulse efforts that really stir you to action. Our searchable site has so many examples of females empowering each other through education and encouragement, that there is certain to have inspiration for all.

We'd love to hear from you again.
