Portrait by Doug Knutson.
Hi, my name is Heather Koshiol.
In May of 2012 I began filling this online space with ways for readers to discover and honor what brings them joy. Since then, I have developed courses and workshops focused on helping people tune into their own heart's unique wisdom. And dozens of Heart's Path Explorers have participated in online and in-person Learn + Explore + Share (L+E+S) workshops.
My own path is paved with five heart ventures, my term for the activities that are as vital to my well-being as breathing and sleeping. My heart ventures are: connecting, creating, exploring, learning and moving.
The blog here at L+E+S has been a vehicle that's allowed me to practice four of my five heart ventures on a regular basis. (Writing is a generally sedentary activity; however, I do a lot of thinking and planning while I'm moving on the treadmill or jogging in my neighborhood.)
My Hopes for You ...
- That you will seek and experience personal growth.
- That you will open your heart to creating space and time for joy in your life.
- That you will take steps to begin doing what's personally fulfilling to you.
- That you will use L+E+S to help you navigate the busyness of life in order to find and nurture the heart of your true self.
As I have continually developed The Guideposts that can help steer each of us to our individual path, I have aimed to offer a toolbox full of flexible, customizable resources that will allow you to focus on ...
- your heart;
- your joy;
- your values;
- your true path.
Other Stuff About Me
Though I was born out-of-state while my dad was int he Air Force, I am a lifelong Minnesotan. I live in suburban Minneapolis with my husband, our two smart and lovely daughters, and our cutie-pie doggie Willlow. My blood type is 70% cacao chocolate. As of this writing (September 2015) I am considering training for a half-marathon. My favorite social media platform is Instagram. (You're invited to follow me there and post your own moments of joy with #honorwhatbringsjoy.)
Thank you for spending a slice of your day with me!
