Sheila Schultz

Coach, Trainer, End-of-Life Liaison

There’s a simpler way…

I know what it’s like to feel out of control. I also know how to stop feeling that way.

About Me…

As a professionally trained stress management facilitator, end-of-life doula and advance care planning educator, I combine gentle guidance with practical skills to offer training services that promote peace of mind during times of physical, emotional or spiritual strain. My greatest strengths are my organizational skills, calm nature, and ability to adapt to change.

Having previously held positions within both startups and Fortune 500 companies, I established A Quiet Mind, LLC  one year after experiencing a series of life-altering losses. Later, while hosting an online talk show with a mutual friend, I interviewed Patty Burgess, of Teaching Transitions and Doing Death Differently.  We quickly formed a bond and began collaborating to create programs that reflect our shared passion for training and advancing the current state of healthcare. Your Voice Directives, a platform for delivering service-specific learning and business expertise to advance care planners, is a result of that collaboration.

Today, I continue to be a relentless student and enthusiastic advocate for emotional wellbeing. When not focusing on my life’s work, I can usually be found in close proximity of friends or family, outside in nature, or sitting in meditation.

My Approach

I like to keep things simple. My guidance comes mainly from experiences with real people and real life. My style is easy-going, open, and calm. I put  my full attention into my blog, videos, courses, and events. I help you to look gently and patiently at tough circumstances, to see what tends to create the most distress.  The goal is to feel better; to foster emotional intelligence and peace of mind.
