Host Gwen Lepard

Hi, I’m your Host and the Executive Producer of Joyful Living Health Radio, Gwen Lepard.  I hail from the mountains of Western Montana.  Growing up in this mystical place of natural surroundings and wonder, I gained many life lessons from simply enjoying my environment.  Iwatched the river below my mountain home rise and fall each spring.  The river became a metaphor for me as it showed change through dramatic flooding and then back to the default of joy as the river found it’s bed again year after year.

I came into this world, as we all do, pure love, light, energy and joy!  My path has lead me through many experiences.  Some joyful and empowering and others that some would allow to scar them for life or to put them into a mode of paralyzing victimization.  However, I’ve continually found my way back to joy!  It’s my default, the setting I came in with, that we all come in with.

In the 80’s, I trained as a professional massage therapist and worked backstage and in the studio with well known musicians.  This was a phenomenal time of creating change and bringing wellness to the world one person at a time.  The 90’s found me on the airwaves as an on-air radio personality primarily because I knew that the healing energy that was in my hands was also in my voice.  I was moving music, timely information and occasional inspiration from first Spokane, WA to Portland, OR, finally landing back in my home state of Montana to wrap up my broadcasting career, with a few stops in between.

In the early 2000’s, I co-founded a small record label and was personally responsible for getting an album placed on the Grammy ballot.

My deepest passion was inspired after healing from what I’d discovered was verbal abuse during my marriage.  When I was cringing from yet another verbal whipping, I never imagined that my husband would actually physically whip me and then he did.  That day I fled my mountain home and began a journey back to joyful empowerment.

I share with my audiences, “If you feel like you’re being abused.  You are being abused!”  I was told that I needed to “toughen up and this is how it is in the real world”.  Not in my world!  AND I was right… I made the choice to recreate my life from my default of joy.

Through excellent mentors and inner healing work, I realized that I’d created this situation to show me how I had verbally abused myself.  That realization had me looking around at the world and at my client’s patterns of anxiety, fear and shame, and… I “got it”!

With this insight came the passion and purpose for a movement.  A movement of joy that brings to public awareness that verbal abuse to another or to yourself is damaging…  AND there is something that can be done about it.  Every individual has the ability to choose.  We can each choose to change this pattern!

“There is healing to be done!  So much more joy can be brought into this world and it starts with the words you say to yourself and to others.  It also matters how you say those words and how your body responds to them…  Choose to see joy, speak joy, hear and feel JOY!”

I created a Signature 360 System for Health and Joy using my skills as a Master Healer trained in NLP, Hypnosis, Time Dynamics, Quantum Jumping and a multitude of Body, Mind, Emotion and Spirit healing tools to help heal the healer in each of us.  After all… we are all, everyone of us, healers.  “Cut yourself, you bleed, you clot, you heal.”

Now in 2014, I find myself in a position to be a spokesperson and messenger for the new paradigm of health and wellness.  Collaborating with media and other healers around the world to bring the message of taking our power back and allowing our healing to begin first with ourselves and then reaching out.  I have taken the responsibly of healing myself into my own hands and have the message that we all have the ability to heal ourselves.  Yes, there are times that help is appropriate and necessary and if we start with our own innate power, miracles happen.
