With immense gratitude, we introduce Billie Sunday Mars as a featured panelist for the #WholePersonActivationSeries! Billie’s journey to serve you began over 40 years ago when he was a 12-year-old artistic nerd whose father died 8yrs earlier, as a civilian, saving kids from a fire. When he was 16, he lost his mom to cancer (she was 55) and later lost his younger brother who at 37 alcoholically drank through, not one but two, kidney transplants. He later realized the fight she bravely lost wasn’t to cancer nor my brother’s to alcoholism or kidney failure. Those, like most diseases, diabetes (which my grandmother passed from), were just “symptoms”. They were all subconscious shadows of a traumatized Nervous System. Billie believes that all of today’s Race, Gender, Addiction, Social and Political Issues are also just symptoms. “There are thousands hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.” ~ Thoreau.
Performing & training in China and Japan Billie found the real issue we face is the inability of our system to deal with (di)stress, especially due to trauma. Also, as we age, our (Chi/libido) hormones and immune systems decline making it easier for people to gain weight, harder to lose it, to get sick, and harder to recover. His time in Asia provided Billie with understanding and discipline, a type of Spiritual Chivalry which married his studying the teachings of Jesus, Rumi, Buddha, Joseph Campbell & others while deeply honoring the Feminine & Divine Goddess. This he merged with relentless studies of Interpersonal Neurobiology, Polyvagal Theory, addiction, attachment/trauma, telomeres, psychoneuroimmunoendocrinology, nutrition & supplementation.
Now at age 54, the most important thing he realizes is that if anything we learn is to be beneficial long term, (think New Year’s Resolutions), it must essentially be neurobiologically downloaded and constantly upgraded in our mind. Billie has learned to make this a FUN, playful & compassionate practice process you’ll love no matter what you’ve been through or will go through. This happens because you’re always learning about and to accept and understand YOUrself, who and how you’ve been, and why. Your mistakes and failures are fertilizer! They are not only welcomed, they’re recycled, transformed, (maybe cried about) but usually and eventually chuckled at (by you) as you realize it’s all a necessary part of your process. We uproot your psychological rocks and weeds then plant and nurture seeds that feed you as you grow younger and healthier (build muscle/lose fat/gain heart, spirit & soul). Best of all is when you do this in a growth-based partnership you’re in or are preparing for ~because for health, love & wealth you must become what you want to attract & retain. Billie is deeply honored by and committed to participating in your seeing and being better than your best for yourself and those you love!!
