Diana Cole grew up in California learning about energy healing and spirituality from a very early age thanks to her father, who was a prominent figure in San Francisco’s New Age movement. Her path to helping others heal began in adulthood after she suffered a back injury and was inspired to create a specialized healing exercise for strengthening the spine. She healed herself, and then she began teaching the method to others, even opening a barre studio.
Little did she know at that time that her own series of spiritual trials were just beginning. Once Diana started a thriving brick-and-mortar business teaching the spine-strengthening method she had created, her competitors in the fitness industry banded together to ruin her business and boost theirs. Diana also went through a harrowing divorce. Suffering through physical, mental, and emotional hardship, she sank into a debilitating depression.
“I was busy living my pain stories for so long that I forgot what it felt like to be happy,” says Diana. “By 2015, the toll of these years of turmoil was abundantly clear. I couldn’t pay my bills, and I often slept 18 hours a day without ever feeling rested. I was losing my hair in handfuls, and I never felt good. I felt like worry and stress were killing me. … At a certain point, I just knew I couldn’t continue living the life I was living. I knew I had to change. I decided to trust and it worked.”
It was her gift for connecting with spirit that finally gave her a lifeline out of the darkness. Now, she has dedicated her life to helping others find their own internal path of connection so they, too, can heal and thrive.
