Jan 20th Melodee Stumpf-self proclaimed Joy-ologist

She is also a healing arts therapist, expressive movement facilitator, a midwife for the end of life as a hospice volunteer, and an aspiring, inspiring, self proclaimed joyologist! She’s a teacher, mentor, mover and a shaker, and believes bliss happens when you take that path less traveled and choose to color outside of the lines when navigating your life’s path.Choosing to live in presence, with passion and on purpose, she lives joy by creating opportunities to express and explore the everyday bounty of life’s gifts, beauty and bliss.

Melodee, a respected pioneer and practitioner in her profession; began her journey as a licensed massage therapist in 1985. She founded, owned and operated Body Oasis Integrative Healing arts for well being in Milwaukee Wisconsin, before embracing a dream to move to the southwest in 2008 to re-inspire, re-create and re-build her practice while unfolding in new beginnings.

Our 2nd guest in the Fun and Play theme is the main man of The John Linn Band, and for him music is fun and play! Since 2005, this powerhouse country/Southern rock band has been busy opening up for such greats as Willie Nelson, Toby Keith, Reba MacIntyre, and the Charlie Daniels Band. This high energy band also has a deep involvement in charity organizations such as The Boys & Girls Club, The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission and The American Cancer Society and does charity fundraisers when asked.

The John Linn Band is environmentally conscious, and is converting their Eagle tour bus to bio-diesel and installing the refining equipment right on board to manufacture fuel on the bus. The bus will also be equipped with solar power to run the everything on board. The JLB will then embark on an exciting tour of colleges and high schools to spread awareness about alternative fuels and power sources.

John Linn also builds custom guitars. Linn Guitars has been on the market since 1996 and has been a favorite of many pros like Bret Michaels, Kenny Wayne Sheperd, Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson), Zack Wilde and others. Linn Guitars has also been a big contributor to charity events, raising more than $85,000 in the last five years. This guy knows that one of the keys to happiness is helping others and bringing joy to their lives!

When he is not playing music or making guitars John travels the Southwest, helping others with affordable roof work when needed as the owner of his own roofing company for 25 years.

A father of two children, John is also in the pursuit of discovering and unlocking the keys to a successful relationship by studying Imago therapy and other types of proven theories. He has started writing a book about his experiences. “Stuff by John” which should be completed by early 2013.

Feb 17th Celeste Green – Child-Like Play & Wonder

Before discovering unconditional laughter and training as a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader and Teacher, Celeste entertained Atlanta audiences in weekly improvisational comedy shows at Whole World Theatre. When she was not performing on stage, Celeste guided children and teens in honing their own crafts. Celeste has learned that we can all tap into the same sense of childlike play and wonder that she observed and cultivated in children, unconditionally and with ease. And this girl knows how to live in the laughter! We trained together as Laughter Yoga Leaders and I can tell you without a doubt that Celeste knows how to have fun and is a major model for “Getting Your Bliss-ology On! I can guarantee this will be one laughter packed conversation!

March/April: ~ Spirituality ~ After we give ourselves some time for fun and play, we can settle down, get quiet, and allow for the small voices within to be heard, and connect to our oneness with all, or God, or Higher Power, or whatever you name it. Having spiritual connection helps us to tap into our deepest knowing, where the truth of our lives live, the ultimate key to discovering our Bliss.

May 18th-Tonya and Justin Recla-Power Partners in Business and Life

For the 2nd show in our Bliss-full Relationships segment, we’re excited to bring Tonya Dawn and Justin Recla. These two are POWER partners, in life and in business. From marriage to business to parenthood they continually redefine the concept of POWER within the context of partnership.

With over 18 years of combined experience in military and government counterintelligence and over 20 years of combined training experience, they operate TJ Recla, a training entity that “Translates Valuable Information into Business Success” and promote Tonya’s books and training. Tonya’s motto, “Changing the World by Redefining POWER,” also defines their relationship.

“People ask us all the time how we work together and stay married. The secret is we don’t define our roles,” Tonya explains. “We operate in a constant state of flux regarding POWER and gender roles. Some situations require my method of directing and some require his. We just step back and allow the process to work without trying to control it.”

Justin adds, “We have to be okay with playing a supporting role when necessary. I’ve really had to learn that sometimes she carries the masculine energy better than I would in a situation. That was a tough one for my ego.”

But in the end, the value and importance of their relationship overrides any preconceived notions of gender roles. And it seems to working. Whether they’re nurturing their entrepreneurial ventures or their two year-old, they do it together…and they do it well.
