Transitional Wisdom Inc.

Transitional Wisdom is a Coaching and Consulting firm located in Laguna Beach CA.  It is owned and operated by Morning Star Holmes M.A. having over 25 years of experience working with organizations, individuals and families to reach their fullest potentials.

My company's mission is To be in service to others, promoting love, compassion, health and wellbeing from birth to death,  by facilitating family unity and support when they have a loved one who has experienced a significant loss, is facing a life-threatening disease or age-related decline.  It is through family support that our elders and those facing life-threatening illness can remain as independent as possible, remaining in control of their own choices and have the best quality of life possible, whatever their circumstances.  My philosophy is that prevention and early intervention of disease and informative end of life planning will give individuals and their families the opportunity to complete their lives with dignity, leaving a lasting imprint on those they love as their lasting legacy.

Morning Star Holmes M.A. 

Morning Star Holmes has had a Business Consulting and Coaching firm since 1997.  Prior to starting her own Business Consulting and Coaching business, she worked with "At Risk" youth and their families, providing her with a wealth of experience in family dynamics and a deep respect for the value of prevention and early intervention when families are faced with a challenge.  After her mother was diagnosed with dementia in the mid-90's.  Adapting her business consulting skills, she helped facilitate a sense of team within her family with each family member participating in her mother's care and support.  She guided her parents in clarifying whjat they wanted and what they did not want as my mother's health declined.  Her parents' clarity made it easy for their children to support their wishes.  Using her NLP background, Ms. Holmes spent the last 2 years of her mother's life guiding her mother to peaceful resolution and completion of her life with dignity.  Her mother died in her home surrounded by her entire family, free of pain and fear.  This personal experience is what brought Ms. Holmes to realize her Soul Purpose was to work with families and their loved ones facing the challenges of decline and loss.  She has developed a successful model that promotes compassionate support for the family team, increases the quality of life for the loved one who is declining in health and assisting them in completing life with dignity.

Ms. Holmes earned her  Bachelor of Science  Degree in Human Services at the University of Oregon and her Master of Arts degree in Applied Behavioral Science, with an emphasis on Consulting and Coaching, at Bastyr University in Seattle. She is a certified NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) Trainer and Consultant.

Ms. Holmes has consulted with companies in their efforts to reorganize and restructure their teams and their goals as they adapt to the ever changing market place. She has assisted in team development trainings with BLM and Bayer Pharmaceuticals, worked as both a team member and manager on training teams for Robert Dilts and Judith Delozier at NLP University in Santa Cruz, CA, Connie Rae and Steve Andreas of NLP Comprehensive in CO, Wings-Seminars, Eugene, OR, and Michael Grinder of Michael Grinder Associates, Battleground, WA. and with numerous smaller agencies and individual families.

Her Native American heritage has given her a deep respect for diversity that is reflected in her work. She has worked with consultants from many different countries and cultures, honoring their contributions and learning the value of many perspectives. She has studied in Italy and has had the opportunity to travel and experience many cultures.

Morning Star has recently adopted a German Shepherd named Abby.  Abby is in training to become a therapy dog so that Morning Star and Abby will volunteer as a team to assist those who are going through life transitions.  Morning Star has been an advid walker, spending 1-2 hours daily getting her exercise and connecting with others on her walks.  Abby has now joined in this daily activity with a true gift for touching the hearts of others as she greets them along the path.  It will be fun to watch as Abby develops her role in this company.  Many times a gentle and accepting animal can warm the hearts for those adapting to challenges as they age or face a significant loss or life-threatening disease.
