I'm Judy Sedgeman. My life's passion for more than three decades has been awakening creativity, resiliency, and well-being in people through the understanding of the Principles of Mind, Thought and Consciousness, which are the foundations of our experience of Innate Health. I am a teacher, mentor and consultant in that work.
Currently, in addition to all the Three Principles work I do through Sedgeman Consulting, LLC, I also am a consultant for Center for Sustainable Change, where I design and offer Principle-based programs. And I offer Mental Health Mentoring to individual clients through the Women's Resource Center in my community, as well as Innate Health Groups for veterans through several non-profits.
I served as the Director of the Institute for Public Policy and Leadership (IPPL) at USF Sarasota-Manatee for two years, departing that position in January 2012 to devote myself more to global outreach in Innate Health through my own consulting practice.
Before that, I spent nearly 12 years on the faculty of the West Virginia University School of Medicine, where I was Director of an Institute dedicated to Innate Health, and where I developed and taught courses for the Master's Program in Public Health. I'm still teaching Continuing Education courses through WVU online, focused on resiliency and mental well-being in education. My passion is service to others focused on eliminating stress and accessing wisdom and resiliency.
You can access my resume here and a more complete Curriculum Vitae here, but what I most want to share is why I am dedicated to teaching and writing about the Principles. When I joined WVU, before there was such a thing as a Blog, I wrote essays called "Reflections" for an e-mail subscription list (proud to say it was the most heavily subscribed list at WVU in its day). You can find a selection of those essays, which were meant to awaken the idea of Innate Health and its significance to the growing Wellness field, here. They were very often requested by people as handouts. I got very busy with teaching and other projects, and stopped writing them after a few years, but I missed the ability to communicate the profound, yet practical, impact of understanding the nature of human psychological functioning. So I'm thrilled to be able talk about it in my Blog, and to offer my services in a variety of ways to reach out to people.
What does this have to do with me, you might ask? I would answer, "Everything." Everything that involves humanity is the product of human thought, and how seriously we take one thought over another, and how well we understand ourselves and other people. We have a long way to go to come to peace, but the only way to reach it is to start the journey, one human being at a time.
