“Erin graced us with her presence, as a guest speaker, and discussed nutrition and wellness at Echo Global Logistics. While we all think that we have the best diet and know the right tips on how to lose weight, Erin enlightened us through her presentation on how this is a lifestyle choice NOT a diet.
She gave wonderful tips that we were able to implement into our daily routine immediately. Erin shared her struggles with weight throughout life, that was very impactful. She was well prepared and answered everyone’s question with honest realistic answers. She even raffled off a 45 minute wellness phone coaching session to our employees! Erin is knowledgeable, motivating and real! Thank you Erin for all you taught us!”

at Oak Lawn Public Library, Oak Lawn, IL

“Erin has created a following for a crowd who normally wouldn’t think of the library as a place for self-discovery.  Time and time again people are coming back to the library to see her because of her ability to engage a crowd and help them reflect on themselves no matter what the topic is.  This four-part series drew us in from beginning to end guided us along on a journey to love ourselves more, love ourselves deeply, and continue to practice that self-love over time.”

“How Multitasking is Stealing Your Joy”

for Southside NetWorking Women, Chicago, IL

“What an incredible evening! Erin Dubich outdid herself tonight starting with asking us to participate in an exercise in being mindful and silent for a few minutes while we enjoyed the delicious food prepared for us. I was reminded that eating is more than just refueling, it is a sacred act. In fact, my life is a series of sacred acts if I choose to live it as such.
When I choose to truly ‘be’ and be present and focused and truly here, right now, I am connected to God, to myself and the person I am with in that moment.
I was reminded that we are perceptive beings and while multitasking and being on our phones is almost acceptable at times, that when I unplug and truly focus all of my attention on the person I am with, that person will feel more valued and we will both feel more connected as a result of our being truly present and with each other.
I learned that prioritizing my life is important and that when I focus on the truly important and when I give the highly valuable priorities my full attention that the unimportant will fall away. I was reminded to use focusing on my breath as a way to bring myself into the ‘now’.
All we really have is this moment. True peace is being able to cultivate peace amidst the storms of life. I believe that we are by nature joyful beings.
Erin reinforced this belief tonight and I am truly grateful for our time with her.”

Dr. Sheila Crowe, D.C., Chiropractor and Owner, Body and Soul Healthcare, Inc
