Here are a few of the natural techniques we teach, to help people lower their stress. These techniques took years to develop. First, we learned meditation and yoga ourselves and practiced under the guidance of our teachers. Next, we developed simple techniques that we knew would be suitable for busy contemporary schedules. We taught our techniques to many people, both in person and online, and listened to their suggestions, successes, and challenges. Eventually, we developed an entire system of integrated techniques and information that have successfully helped people lower stress, increase wellness, and enhance wellbeing.
LSF has been described as "practical spirituality" because we offer proven spiritual and mental wellness tools that help people spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and psychologically. Let's face it. Most of us struggle with common problems and challenges that are not an illness or a disability. What we really need are practical solutions, time-tested wisdom, and essential know-how. Put those three things together and you have Living Stress Free.

LSF Stress Coaching
LSF Stress Coaching is all about mental wellness - reducing stress and living optimally. Every one of us has the ability to discover inner balance and calm. LSF Stress Coaching helps you take a look at your current life: how you spend your time, how you wish you were spending your time, your values, your stressors, how your energy is directed. It then helps you lower your stress and redirect your life in the direction you want to go.
Your LSF Stress Coach will help you identify stressful areas of your life that need readjustment, such as areas that are getting too much or too little attention to be in balance with the rest of your life. In some ways, a Stress Coach is like a chiropractor in that he or she helps you realign your lifestyle so there is less wear and tear on your wellbeing. You will have opportunities to learn techniques such as meditation, yoga music, guided imagery, sleep regulation, creating dynamic weekly schedules, and a wealth of helpful information about stress. You will also have the opportunity for regular contact with your Stress Coach to ask questions, share insights and problem-solve.
Spiritual Intelligence Course
The Spiritual Intelligence Course is specifically designed for people who are interested in spirituality and developing a spiritual path or enhancing their current path. The Spiritual Intelligence Course shares wisdom and insights that originated in the Indian traditions of Yoga, Vedanta, Kashmir Shaivism, and Buddhism but it is not an academic course.
The Spiritual Intelligence Course is a spiritual path in itself that shares with you the world's oldest spiritual insight - that we all share one Universal Self. Yoga, meditation, mantra, prayer, devotion and all other forms of spiritual practice are methods to prepare us for awakening. We must wake up from our ego dreams of being isolated souls stuck inside physical bodies. We also have to wake up from our personal narratives - the run-on story we tell ourselves and others about who we are and what we are doing.
You will receive an SPI lesson each week to inspire you to look inside and see deeper levels of yourself and the world around you. Lessons will share ancient truths and insights from yogic and meditation classics but they will also offer you suggested practices, contemplations, and techniques that will help you experience spiritual intelligence - our term for living in the zone, moving towards enlightened living.
You will also have email access to the course's author, Louis Guadagnino, who is also the creator of LSF Meditation and the author of two LSF books - The LSF Wellness Program and It's Never Too Late To Do Nothing: Mindfulness Meditation, Yoga, and Spiritual Intelligence. Your email conversation with Louis Guadagnino is a wonderful opportunity to share your spiritual journey and to get support in applying the course to your life.
LSF Counseling is for everyone. You do not need to be suffering from mental health symptoms to want to learn more about yourself or learn what steps you need to take to build the life that you want to live. LSF Counseling is for anyone who is ready to connect, learn, experience, and grow.
