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 Grace de Rond’s writing is all about why and how to make that decision. In addition to this blog, she’s authored four books, plus she’s a regular Contributor to sites including Thrive Global, The Good Men Project and HuffPost.
Grace doesn’t write alone. She coauthors with her husband, Ron, who’s a medical doctor turned international boardroom coach and trainer. She’s American, and he’s from Amsterdam. And 25 years ago, he saw her photo, knew she was the one, and traveled 4,000 miles to find her.
The inspiration for their writing comes from their blended bicultural family that’s spread over two continents, their corporate-coaching and teaching with professionals, couples and children, and their lifelong studies of the mind-body-spirit connection.
Grace was steeped in religion and metaphysics from an early age, reading her first Edgar Cayce book when she was 14, at the same time that she attended traditional church three times a week. She’s meditated daily for decades, and she’s 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 such visiting luminaries as Buckminster Fuller and Elizabeth Kubler-Ross. She found her lifelong teacher, Paul Solomon, at age 22, and she continues to share his work with an expanding audience. Plus she devours Abraham-Hicks daily. Today, universal spiritual principles and arcane wisdom fuel her daily life and her writing.
Grace’s focus is on how we can purposefully use our inner worlds to shape our outer worlds, matching our inherent purpose with our outer expression – while making all of it applicable to daily life in order to create effective lives.
