The Finding Magic in Midlife Radio Show was produced and archived by Exceptional Wisdom Radio from August 2008 through June 1013, when EWR went off the air. I’m moving the show archives to Choosing To Be Fit because much of the wisdom I’ve gained about creating a body- mind-spirit fitness lifestyle came from reading books by and talking with these exceptional midlife women. The interviews are timeless. I hope you will get to know some of these brilliant, talented, and inspirational women and learn from them as I did.

Dr. Toni Galardi was interviewed on the Finding Magic in Midlife Show in January 2010.
Dr. Toni Galardi is a licensed psychotherapist, public speaker, advice columnist and book author. She is the developer of the LifeQuake™ Method, which is trailblazing a new model for overcoming the fear of change.
Most of us are dependent on using crisis as the prime motivator for change. However, in order for us to survive as a species, we need a new method that develops the ability to anticipate the end of cycles and prepare for change before it reaches catastrophic consequences. The LifeQuake™ Method reframes this personal and global upheaval into a seven-stage model, as described in her book, The LifeQuake Phenomenon: How To Thrive (Not Just Survive) During Times of Personal and Global Upheaval.
Dr. Galardi has been asked to share the LifeQuake™ Model with a wide range of regional, national and international media outlets, including Good Day LA, Women’s Health Magazine, the Neil Cavuto Show, Good Day San Diego, “Healthy Advice” with Dr. Gene Steiner on KRLA, “Your Health Matters” with Dr. Tony O’Donnell on KXAM, “The Aware Show” with Lisa Garr on KPFK and “Inner Vision” with Dr. Nita Vallens on KPFK.”
A noted public speaker and former adjunct professor of psychology, Toni has adapted the LifeQuake™ Model for both corporate America and academia. Working with organizations as diverse as Xerox Corp, Interactive Arts, and Ryokan College, she has assisted scores of people who are seeking to transform their fear of change into a joyous, meaningful life.
Toni received her Ph.D. in Psychology from Barrington University, her Master of Arts in Marriage, Family, and Child Counseling from Chapman University and Bachelor of Science in Public Administration from the University of Arizona. She has been a licensed psychotherapist in the state of California for over twenty years and currently resides in Los Angeles.
