About Rhea Goodman
"I think of Living Juicy as a cultural enzyme, a catalyst for producing transformative change….redefining what it means to live consciously in the second half of life.
We are in for very big changes. And change is the only constant, yet it is feared by most people. What we face is a crisis of the imagination. We need to create new possibilities for people, showing them living examples of innovative ways to live with heart, purpose, and meaning."
Born, raised and educated in New York City, Rhea moved diagonally across the United States from New York City to Santa Fe, New Mexcio in 1982. She left behind several decades of creative entrepreneurship, having established two successful prototype businesses in Manhattan. The first, "Instant Interiors," was a unique interior design consultation service. Her approach was to reinvent people’s homes by repurposing what clients already had in their possession. The second, "Quilt Gallery Inc." was the first art gallery to sell antique American quilts as wall art. Rhea sold quilts to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of American Folk Art, Knoll International, the Esprit collection, as well as many international art galleries and collectors. Both businesses were featured in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Paris Tribune, and House & Garden.
In 1972 Rhea studied with the Gnostic wisdom school Arica, a school emphasizing the body/mind connection. She also studied at the School of Tai Chi Chuan in 1975, becoming an accredited Tai Chi teacher of Yang Style Short Form, as taught by Cheng Man-ch’ing. Rhea has continued her involvement with Tai Chi, and, following her 2014 interview with Master Mingtong Gu (link) she enthusiastically integrated the physical practice of Qigong into her daily life. Rhea is also passionate about swing dancing and the Tao.
