Lila's Story

I first started training in the martial art of Kuk Sool Won™ 20 year ago, and today I hold the rank of 4th Degree Black Belt, teach this martial art to others, and I am training for my Masters. For more than 15 years I have studied -with great passion and respect- Ondre's Frequency Energy Medicine™. Action Awareness Training is built on the foundational wisdoms and practices of both traditions. 

Action Awareness is a twin-pillar practice devoted to the physical and conscious empowerment of women and children. It’s my professional mission - and it’s deeply personal, too.

Growing up, my life was like Little House on the Prairie: country farm, loving family. I was very, very happy - and very sheltered. I met a handsome boy, we married young, and given my idyllic upbringing, I was utterly unprepared for what happened next. 

It was definitely not Little House on the Prairie. 

Instead, I discovered that my husband had a mental illness. Untreated, it made him unpredictable and explosive. Our marriage was volatile - screaming, shouting, objects hurled at the wall - and then, one day, when I was pregnant with our second baby, I found him unconscious on the bathroom floor after he’d attempted suicide. It was five years of duress, and there was nothing more I could do. I tried to “fix” him but that went as well as you’d expect. When I left, I was shattered. I had a toddler and an infant. 

I had to rebuild my life. I had to rebuild myself.


Sense of self, self-esteem, self-confidence - they were all gone. And how far can you get without them?

I set out to reclaim myself. To get it together. To get strong. I’d already been involved in martial arts, but now I took it up in earnest. It changed everything. Getting physically strong, and using my voice and my body with force encouraged me to claim my space. It reacquainted me with something I forgot: I have power. I am worth something. I am worth protecting.

I sought that with martial arts and I sought it with spirituality. I tried many different approaches to holistic health and wellbeing, but it wasn’t until I was introduced to Ondre’s Frequency Energy Medicine™ that the doors opened to possibility, hope and healing. 

If I could say anything about Ondre’s Frequency Energy Medicine™, it’s this: The results. The results. The results. Also - it looks at the whole person; the root cause, not just the symptom. It’s not an overnight thing, but when you stay the course, the spiritual, mental, and physical results you experience are tangible and transformative.

Frequency Energy Medicine™ was an important healing resource for me when Lyme Disease began bombarding me with debilitating symptoms. For six years, I was under siege. I researched every kind of treatment - traditional Western medicine and alternatives - and Frequency Energy Medicine™ was the most helpful tool in my toolbox, allowing me to recover without any antibiotics or conventional medicine. It’s been an integral part of my healing process - which, of course, continues. Lyme is sneaky and enduring like that. But again, being consistent with my nutrition and practices over time yields relief and results.

Where I am now is far from where I’ve come.

I’ve made happy strides in my health and well-being. I’ve raised healthy young people. My children are independent, adventurous, inspiring young adults. I’m happily remarried. I'm currently studying nutrition at the University of Natural Medicine and I’ve written several books – and one of them, Quiet Mind, Warrior Spirit, garnered Honorable Mention Awards at the San Francisco and New York Book Festivals. And another – Street Sense for Children landed on the USA Best Books list. I teach Action Awareness Training to colleges, corporations, high schools, middle schools, women's groups, and individuals.

I’m simply here to assist you in your journey to good health, personal safety, and happiness.

In other words: I’m here to help you flex your I-can-do-it muscles. You’ve got ‘em. Action Awareness personal sessions or Action Awareness Training workshops can help you grow and exercise them. Physically, mentally and spiritually. It’s all one and the same.

It’s your life. 


You deserve to live it, well. With strength. With passion and purpose. With your quiet mind and warrior spirit.
You don’t have to be ready. You just have to be willing.
