Peace, Harmony, and Christmas with Nola Hennessy and Cynthia Brian

Australian author and founder of Serenidad Consulting, Nola Hennessy

brings harmony into Christmas festivities as she visits with Cynthia Brian on StarStyle®. Nola will discuss how developing resilience for life relies on both good and bad experiences, and how best to build a new year that is founded on the lessons learned in 2020. Nola sees peace through an educator’s lens, strongly and consistently advocating for ‘prevention’ strategies and proactive education to resolve the world’s global conflicts and increasing levels of violence and discord. Her multi-award winning book “Post-Traumatic Stress – Not a Life Sentence” includes a special Chapter on “Resilience for Life” in which Nola writes “maintaining the goal of inner peace…………..and (giving yourself) positive affirmations………..will help create your self-fulfilling prophecy “.

One sentiment was universal this season in the holiday cards and emails…hope for a safe, healthy, prosperous future. 2020 has been a year of enormous challenges, chaos, and crisis amid a frightening pandemic that rendered many people feeling hopeless and helpless. Even with shelter-in-place mandates and Zooming taking the place of “being there”, resilience will rule the roost as we celebrate at home during the holidays. Gardening has seen a rise in popularity throughout this year as people craved fresh air while social distancing. Farm fresh food graced the city tables after fruits, vegetables, and herbs were planted by first time gardeners. Green thumbs were grown!

Cynthia Brian shares The Gift of Harmony from her book, Be the Star You Are!® 99 Gifts for Living, Loving, Laughing, and Learning to Make a Difference about an extraordinary experience with fur seals in the Galapagos Islands that proves that we are all united.

A special Christmas poem is read!
