Mission Possible: Peace at Home

during CV19 Stay at Home Crisis

Choosing Happiness

Dr. Marissa is the Creator of PowerChi, formerly known as Balance Tai Qiqong, a moving meditation that promotes Inner Peace one breath at a time, and has offered free daily classes that have anchored the message of #shuttheworryup !! Dr. Marissa encourages her audience to use this time to clean out their physical clutter AND the emotional and mental clutter that keeps us from choosing happiness in our lives, both BC19 (Before Covid-19) and in the ‘Present’ aka the ‘Gift’ of Life!! Because a crisis is a terrible thing to waste! This is the time for EXPANSION not Self-Distancing!!


While it is difficult to stay positive during this time when all the news is bad news, Dr. Marissa aka the ‘Asian Oprah’ has been #positivelyopinionated on various media platforms with her message of hope and happiness from her #1 bestseller, “8 Ways to Happiness from Wherever You Are”. 


The 8 Ways to Happiness Not-for-Profit was born out of this difficult time. While many have been displaced and let go of their former employment the #covidsilversling is an opportunity to really ask ourselves some important life questions:


Do I really want to go back to "normal" when I really didn't even like my job in the first place!


What really makes me happy?


Is there an opportunity to come out of this happier with myself and with others?


I have a friend, who has, not an answering machine but a Questioning Machine and when you call her it says "WHO ARE YOU?!! and What do you want??!!


I believe that this is a time to Pause, to turn the pause symbol on an angle to #takeabreath and ask ourselves those questions. It's TIME to delete any stale cookies in our life browser and reboot our lives. 


During this time of understandable fear and anxiety, there IS an alternative to ducking under the covers or running around with your hair on fire! 


#takeabreath and #shuttheworryup is a movement designed to strengthen our resolve to be Human-KIND and boost our immune system by practicing #selfcare and healthy coping skills.

Warning: Side effects may include more smiling, more compliments and less grumpiness so join with caution.

Loving Yourself Peace Within

#peaceathome starts with you

The foundation course for the movement is Peace at Home: Loving Yourself with Peace of Mind and Peace Within, which fosters the #blissipline to find the Love you’ve always been looking for (even BC19) outside of yourself….and look WithIN not without.
