My name is Consuelo Collier, and I’m a radio personality, transpersonal counselor, literary editor, writer, and student of life.
Spirituality: I’ve studied a myriad of traditions along my spiritual path, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, traditional Christianity, and Gnosticism (or “gnosis,” which simply means “knowledge”). I’m also a student of A Course in Miracles—and although I don’t agree with it all, I don’t know where I’d be without it. I’m really just a rocker chick turned mystic—and I know that when we endeavor to heal our own lives, we also help others to heal in countless ways.
Geography: I’ve lived in a diversity of locations throughout my life—from rural areas of the Great Plains states, to the rock ‘n’ roll and surfer culture of Southern California, eventually landing here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I am, at heart, a West Coast girl!
Education: Although I have a theologian bachelor’s degree, my greatest gifts, insights, and learnings were not born out of a conventional classroom. So in the tradition of pioneers such as Ernest Holmes, Louise Hay, and even Cesar Millan the Dog Whisperer, I’ve edified myself outside of the borders of traditional education, foraging my own academic path. And this decision, I must say, has paid off mightily for me.
Career: My career began administratively via small construction and industrial firms, which eventually landed me in the corporate world of commercial architecture. From there, the spiritual journey I took to heal myself morphed into my current work as a counselor, editor, writer, and radio personality.
Healing and Book: In 2001, I was diagnosed with an “incurable” digestive condition known as Crohn’s disease. And by the grace of God, I walked all the way through that “imbalance” naturally and holistically, without the use of prescription drugs, surgery, or conventional Western medicine. Going organic and non-GMO changed my health and my life forever, playing a major role in my transcendence of this disease. I write about my healing journey in my new book entitled, The Digestive Journey: How To Heal Your Digestive Woes From The Inside Out (due to be released later this year).
Passions: 1) Living from my natural state of sobriety, while helping to heal the addiction, codependency, and enablement issues that plague our society. 2) Organic and non-GMO food; supporting organic farmers and the conscious Food Movement. 3) Environmentalism; saving our forests, oceans, rivers, and wildlife. 4) Reading, writing, editing, publishing, and keeping literature alive in this new technological era. 5) Helping our children to stay more spiritually, creatively, and environmentally aligned. 6) Technology consciousness; maintaining our connection and presence with the natural world and each other, so our devices aren’t playing “god” in our lives. 7) Ufology—the truth is out there!
Closing: Currently I enjoy my own private practice where I juggle my weekly radio show, transpersonal counseling work, various manuscript and editorial projects, as well as the release of my first book. I’m dedicated to helping others realize their true purpose and potential on a spiritual and creative level. I love rock ‘n’ roll, find solace in nature, and make my home in Seattle, Washington.
