About Grace de Rond

The list of reasons to not feel good about ourselves and our lives is endless – and the decision to not go there is life-changing. And my writing is all about why and how to make that decision. In addition to this blog, my fifth book will be published in fall 2019, plus I’m a regular Contributor to sites including Thrive Global, InspireMore, The Good Men Project and HuffPost.

I don’t write alone. I coauthor with my husband, Ron, who’s a medical doctor turned international boardroom coach and trainer. I’m American, and he’s from Amsterdam. Three decades ago, he saw my photo, figured I was “the one,” and traveled 4,000 miles to find me.

The inspiration for our writing comes from our blended bicultural family that’s spread over two continents, our corporate-coaching and teaching with professionals, couples and children, and our lifelong studies of the mind-body-spirit connection. Our focus is on how we can all use our inner worlds to shape our outer worlds, matching our inherent purpose with our outer expression, to create effective lives.

I was steeped in religion and metaphysics from an early age, reading my first Edgar Cayce book when I was 14, while attending traditional church three times a week. I’ve meditated daily for decades, and I’ve covered the gamut from walking on fire with Tony Robbins, to working at the Edgar Cayce Foundation, to living in a spiritual community and cooking for visiting luminaries like Buckminster Fuller and Elizabeth Kubler-Ross. I found my lifelong teacher, Paul Solomon, at age 22, and I continue to share his work with an expanding audience. Plus I devour Abraham-Hicks daily. Today, universal spiritual principles and arcane wisdom fuel my daily life and my writing.
