We at GreenMountain Enrichment and Empowerment Center (GEEC) use a new technology of the mind-body relationship as described in my book Living Consciously: In An Ego Driven Society. Using the mind, body, spirit and emotional body to discover what is at the heart of the matter makes our coaching truly transformational, every time. Get your book here. Or look around at our store.
We spoke with Bruce Lipton's team who has pioneered this research at a University level. They said “we appreciate you and your work to support others in discovering their personal power. We appreciate you for it!”
We also spoke with Dr. Gabor Mate who uses this technology in Canada he was very excited that you have access to this work through our services. "It affects people on every level of their being."
Mainstream personal growth and development has created a great shift concerning the use and power of positive energy and how it affects daily life, perception of life and life itself. We help people look deep within and let go of their self-sabotage by supporting spiritual growth, emotional intelligence, body awareness and intellectual understanding of the mind-body relationship. It is the heart center that the soul can heal. We help people get to the heart of their issues fast, so they can relieve their suffering, and live life with vigor and vitality.

It's been just over two years since Lisa Sudo worked with us as a coaching client. On October 23rd we received this message to share with you:
In the Fall of 2009, I found myself drowning in turmoil. My life was, quite frankly, a mess on all fronts; emotionally, physically and financially.
...Even though I felt lost, Great Spirit was there to save me from myself and my own ill perceived view of things.
As Kahlil Gibran has quoted in The Prophet,
"When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.
For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you.
Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.
Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.
He threshes you to make you naked.
He sifts you to free you from your husks.
He grinds you to whiteness.
He kneads you until you are pliant;
And then he assigns you to his sacred firet, that you may become sacred bread for God's sacred feast.
All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life's heart."
On my quest to find meaning, strength and purpose, one of the persons who surfaced to help me, was Karen Monteverdi. I am grateful for her intuition which she followed to reach out to me.
I am grateful for the referrals and recommendations she provided to others, whom also assisted in my journey toward wellness. I am thankful for the insights she shared with me and the support and strength she offered when I didn't have enough of my own.
Today, I am me and I again, feel healthy, whole and complete. I am grounded and secure and happy having made the journey.
It wasn't easy and at times, very painful - but it was most assuredly worth it!

I'm a Catholic, I was skeptical that this class would bring me closer to God, but it has. I read my scripture every day. After this work the words came alive for me. My Father in Heaven does support me in me being a child of God! Who knew? I found out in the Self-Knowledge class that Karen knew, and she supports me in knowing too! Thank You. FS

Karen is an expert in talking to a diverging clientele that may take conventional coaches by surprise. For instance, I'm a shamanic practitioner experienced in magic, who meditates a lot, and Karen can play to our strengths. Tom CrepeauFurther Testimony

From the teleclass Self-Knowledge is Self Power with one-on-one coaching.
I took the class because I hoped I'd learn how to overcome some of my difficulties. The first course is an ideal beginning. Karen is an expert in talking to a diverging clientele that may take conventional coaches by surprise. For instance, I'm a shamanic practitioner experienced in magic, who meditates a lot, and Karen is experienced with New Age and Neopagan clientele, so she can play to our strengths. Karen was able to explain to me what the role depression played in my youth (shutting down empathic pathways created by mirror neurons in the brain), and helped me see the positive roles my parents played in my development. I knew this was the right time for me because I had still more healing to do, and she helped pinpoint the areas that needs to occur in. Her deep understanding of why people do what they do, and her ability to explain it. I think the only thing that would have made the class better for me was More time (so, I'm registered for her next class!). My deepest thanks and best wishes. The world needs you as a coach, so this amplifies my wishes for your success, not just for your sake, but for the sake of the clients you can help!

From our teleclass You Are Not Your Past with one-on-one coaching .
I have been doing self development work for some time and suspected I had not gotten to the core of my main issues. Karen, both through her class (You Are Not Your Past) and her coaching, allowed me to discover that place I had not found before and transmute the energy stored there. I immediately felt a significant lessening of the tensions in my back which have not returned. Also, from this experience, she has given given me the tools to uncover and transmute any additional issues that come up in the future. Her compassion, expertise gave me the tools to discover my own natural healing abilities! Please feel free to read Elaines article on The Dark and Light Of Personal Growth and Development Work .

The first class began October 1st 2010.
This program is for those who are committed to creating a mindset that supports fully. During this program you will uncover your authentic self by letting go of self-sabotaging behaviors, beliefs.
Here is what one of our students have said about the Self-Knowledge is Self Power Teleclass with one-on-one coaching :
"I feel like this program and the sessions we've had to this point have definitely been good. These are building blocks and they go in a logical order. In our first class I discovered the positive traits I want to create in my life. From there we have built upon that to get to the point I am now. I am able to use the character visualization to see where I want to end up. This is the first program I have ever seen that gives me the opportunity to clearly define where I want to go, who I want to transform into. From there, our classes have been able to build upon my ideal self. This has given me real tools to help me implement small tweaks in my behaviors that help me maintain my vision. This program is valuable through the progression of steps in order to process valuable healing in my life. I feel like if I would have tried this a different way I wouldn't have gotten the results as quickly as I have. I appreciate the fact that I can look logically at my progression. I see real changes in my life as I transform my perceptions of what I thought was affecting my life. I learned that being able to trust myself is important to me. I learned that I do care about what other people think, it is important to me. Being able to step out of ego when other people are telling me what they think, is a good tool for me to be able to look at it objectively and use it as a reflection of my behaviors and actions and how that affects other people. Then, to look logically if that is what I want or not. Thank you so much for the logic and kindness you give me in our coaching sessions I am truly waking up to how simple it is to create the real me I always knew I could. I just never really knew how. Thank You!"
Living Consciously In An Ego Driven Society - The Book
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent primer about the coaching process, December 12, 2010
By Readers Favorite "Readers Favorite" (Hawesville, KY USA) (VINE VOICE)
This review is from: Living Consciously: In An Ego Driven Society (Paperback)
Karen Monteverdi's LIVING CONSCIOUSLY in an EGO DRIVEN SOCIETY begins by giving us the background to understand why it was necessary for her to write this book. The abuses by her father would make anyone bitter and desiring only revenge. She was the second to last of twenty-one children from three marriages.
She chose to forgive. It didn't just happen, but was the result of a long struggle that culminated in her forties in finding an effective counselor [coach]. It wasn't easy as she learned that emotional upsets and pain are necessary when you are trying to break old neurological patterns and devise and develop new, healthy ones. She had to be reprogrammed and then to solidify her new one.
Her mentors taught her about; forgiveness, authenticity, self-respect, personal responsibility, learning about triggers, active (real) listening, and how to find, accept, and give love.
Some of her suggestions are obvious and would help anyone improve her life, but they are often complex and difficult to do.
However, it is an excellent primer about the coaching process, synergy, structures, and expertise. It uses a variety of approaches to ending victimization overriding, negative history, and taking charge of your life. Further, it has an excellent selection of resources for anyone wanting to change her life - for the better.

In the workshop "Trusting Yourself and Others," given March 20, 2010 I learned:
Sean & Karen Monteverdi, CPC put a new twist on an old tool, now I am listening to my intuition to trusting myself, I learn who I can trust with what.
Gratefully, I am able to ultimately know who to trust with what, and the more I practice the faster the answers will come. Also enabling more positive scenarios with others.
Thank you Karen and Sean for sharing these techniques is such a practical and usable way. I see the wealth of knowledge. My experience was fun and exploratory in our journey today! ~ You're both sooo Awesome!!!
"My experience being coached by Karen has exceeded my expectations. Karen knows how to ask the right questions at the right time to get to the heart of the matter. In the short five weeks working with Karen, I accomplished more in the area of marketing my business than in the whole previous year. In addition to the great coaching, Karen provided some wonderful resources that can help me build my business. I would encourage anyone who wants to build their business to work with Karen."

Living Life With Passion
I was going through a difficult time when I met Karen, feeling stuck about work, and more personally, about my ability to know who I am and express that to the world. I contacted Karen with the goal of skill-building in my own training as a coach, and ended up embarking with her on a much more personal journey than I originally envisioned.
Karen's ability to see through to the heart of the matter and her warm and supportive style helped me un-learn some long-held beliefs about myself and what I am capable of.
She saw things in me that I didn't yet see in myself, and helped to draw them out. I am so grateful for the many, many things I learned from working with this extremely insightful, bright and grounded coach.
I would highly recommend her services to anyone!

Clarity of the Mind/Body relationship
Just one week of working with Karen by far surpassed years of therapy for me.
Karen came to the table with tools to move me forward and get me from stuck to unstoppable.
Her insight, intuition and kindness have been invaluable to me!
Karen, thank you for believing in me and showing me how to believe in myself!
Why did you started coaching?
I was needing some clarity and direction with my health issues.
What were the challenges?
What did you learn?
Tons! That i am in charge of what happens to me and i am responsible for the good and the bad in my life.
I learned that my desire for attention has been a driving force in my illness. i have learned that i am capable of taking care of myself and i don't need an illness for attention. I stand up for myself. I provide for myself and I know I am safe no matter what.
How do you feel about the Coach Karen now?
I adore her and I am grateful that I was able to work with her.
Are you willing to have people contact you to further explore your experience. If so do you have an e-mail address to use?

Good morning again,
As you are off to one of your many 'jobs' this morning, just wanted to give you
a big, big, gigantic hug!!!!
Thank you for your willingness and ability to hear beyond and for the incredible
demonstration of patience, walking me, around, around and back again to get to
this very deep core issue of 'trust'. Once the phone was put down several
pictures began showing themselves around this very issue.
Thank you for taking the time to walk through this issue so close to the heart,
and even more Karen for your willingness to share your busy and full journey and what is ringing through for you.
This is a lovely 'partnership'. Take precious care,
Lainey Ross, England
Note to those who would use Karen as a coach:
Having worked on myself for most of my adult lifetime, I am amazed how Karen so quickly discerned an issue that I did not know was there. After all I had worked for years and years clearing out all the childhood stuff, etc. We all have so many little things tucked away and forgotten, little things that have not allowed us to reach our full potential and have kept us silently and maybe not so silently bound. And yet with the eyes and heart of an excellent coach we are guided through the maze of seeing and experiencing, and thus the flow of innocence once again opened and we are set free to celebrate and move forward in whatever endeavor we may choose.
Facing core issues is generally one of the most difficult activities we are called to face head on. Each individual comes with it's own unique little or large package. The miracle is that once seen, we be set free. I have experienced this time and time again. However, Coach Karen has led the way with such clarity and ease. Coaching sessions are a joy and the freedom given is forever. What more could we ask for??? Making the commitment to be coached and then finding a committed coach leads to a life of freedom and excellence in and of life.
Thank you Karen, for letting me find you, and for your commitment to let me find me!!
Great to hear from you. Life is great, a bit busy but great none the less. I
must say my main goal with you which was to work on the issues with my Mom
has been a great success, I have made so much progress in this that I can
say my life is being transformed. I must thank you again for all of your

Health/Wellness/Life Skills/Self Esteem/Self Healing/Clarity from her own Mind/Body
I first started coaching with Karen many years before she knew of her calling to coach professionally. She has helped me with subjects like depression, anxiety, organization, abandonment, my own troubled teen and her self-worth.
Karen has taught me that I have the answers, skills and tools I seek. I am powerful and amazing and to respect others in the same light.
I've learned skills such as meditation, visualization, being present, deeper understanding of how gratitude is important in my life, manifestation, and realization of my value, belief structure and different self-care techniques. I now know that I am, as I believe I am.
Karen helped me realize that:
1. I am not alone in the challenges I face,
2. That the mistakes I've made are not who I am, but rather a learning experience.
3. That I do hold the key to the answers to my challenges,
4. That I am powerful and of worth, and
5. I can and am getting healthier and happier.
I continue to use all the skills I've learned with success, because they work and are a lifeline to me. My life has become meaningful and full of happiness.
I recommend coach Karen to all my friends and neighbors who are struggling on their path. I believe actions speak louder than words. As others see my changes and growth they will want that powerful change for themselves.
Kathy Case, Portland OR
Karen is a bright and intuitive individual who cares very deeply about her clients' well-being. Even when it was difficult for me to understand how the mind-body connection worked, she was patient and she made sure that I understood her explainations. She is professional and can be counted on to do whatever she says she will do. I would recommend her to anyone who is willing to take action in making their lives better.
Creativity/Self Validation/Clarity of Vision
Karen is a friend and mentor whom I trust. In the course of our conversation I asked her about some articles I'm writing, looking for direction on not only where to publish them, but the best path to take in getting my messages expressed. Karen's intuitive sense provided me with insight into my own powers to express myself and that my planning step was already in place with the work I've done on my website. I came away with a sense of knowing that my articles would lead to greater expressions of my work through a future book. It was nice to have that information spoken to me... yet again... as I am encouraged to step forward in my work. Thanks, Karen, for helping me gain clarity.
