Judith Caldwell, Ed.D, is an amazing woman. She has a deep foundation in education… just look at some of her credentials. Judith has an MST (Master of Science in Teaching) from The University of Chicago, certification from the New School of Social Research in New York City in Art Therapy, two Masters Degrees from the University of Santa Monica. She also allows for her spiritual side to flourish by leading meditations, officiating weddings, baby blessings and memorials.
Jean Trebek met Judith through their mutual friend, Mildred Iacovetti. Jean and Mildred were both volunteers at the Children’s Burn Foundation and were attending a “wrapping party” (an event where volunteers help wrap mystery boxes for a fundraising luncheon). Mildred thought Judith might enjoy it and asked her to come help. Jean and Judith hit it off right away. Judith went out of her way to be friendly and was very easy to get to know. As she shared with Jean, they both realized that they had a lot in common – two boys the same age, Judith was finishing her masters of arts degree in Spiritual Psychology at the The University of Santa Monica while Jean was studying to become a practitioner at the North Hollywood Church of Religious Science. They are both gentle spirits backed by deep love and wisdom. Here’s a glimpse into one of their conversations:
“Our minds are really active and they need to be creatively moving all the time. And if a thought gets in there, our mind likes to chew on it and be creative with it. When our minds keep judging and judging and judging, it does no good what so ever. It’s like a rotten onion in a pot of stew. Don’t even try it. It becomes a way of living, a way of being, it becomes self talk that creates nothing good. Just confusion and sadness that can lead to depression. It just doesn’t do any good. But our minds are strong enough to let go of that negative judgement, let go of that questioning. If we allowed it in, we can invite it out! It’s a matter of breaking a habit; a judging analytical habit. And creating a beautiful new intention to see the positive. Because it’s there more than anything is present.”
