Attuned Awakening Coach, Wendy Wagoner, has explored numerous avenues of disciplines over the last 30 years. She is an experienced, professional Attuned Awakening Coach, healer and workshop leader.
Wendy received her Associates of Arts at Northwestern Michigan College. She later attended Lake Superior State University in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. She lived and raised her two children in the beautiful Les Cheneaux Islands. Wendy now lives in Traverse City Michigan, where she grew up from 10 years of age until her early 20's.
Wendy spent her childhood on the northern shores of Lake Superior. From a very young age she had a sense of the interconnectedness of all things. in her late 20’s she started her journey exploring Native American culture as a Sundancer for 10 years. For over 15 years, Wendy owned a business called Creekside Herbs & Art. Creekside was more than a retail shop, it was a destination and way of life. Wendy created a walking trail system along a creek, a variety of display and medicinal gardens, a sculpture garden intermixed with native wildflowers, and a place to come for a variety of workshops and festivals that focused on educating, healing, community and herbalism. She also worked for the Conservation District volunteering and working full-time as a coordinator of invasive species, conservation, education and watershed issues.
Wendy's journey took her to The Course of Miracles and two intensive years training as a Breath Practitioner with Creative Spirits Training. This training was based on the belief that ‘thought is creative’ and taught a breathing technique as a tool to awaken and release emotions stored in the body. However, Wendy felt that the training was missing some vital connections between the mind (left brain), the felt sense patterns stored in the body (right brain) and human development patterns as a baby connected to the Autonomic Nervous System (brainstem), believing all are interconnected and need to be working together to have true freedom.
The Universe then sent her in the direction of Michael Fleming and the school of Awakening to Presence in Golden Colorado. She completed over 3,000 hours of education and training over a seven-year period in Awakening to Presence, a holistic approach to health and personal growth; integrating emotional and psychological process work, bodywork, energy work, conscious movement, and exercise. Now, Wendy has demonstrated a professional level of competency in supporting others as a certified Attuned Awakening Coach. She also completed the Awakening to Presence Teacher’s Training, a four-year program based out of Colorado and Pennsylvania.
Wendy has a private coaching practice, Attuned Coaching, in Northern Michigan. Wendy also assists with Awakening to Presence workshops in Colorado and Pennsylvania.
