Meet our founder, Julie Wald
In the wake of the attacks of September 11, 2001, Golden founder, Julie Wald noticed a profound shift in how individuals and organizations searched for meaningful practices to support well being and performance.

The Four Pillars of Wellness
What defines self-care? Our framework for teaching self-care is built on Golden's Four Pillars of Wellness: Movement, Nourishment, Connection and Stillness. Within this framework, we work with you to integrate powerful wellness practices into your life in a way that feels natural and doable for your busy schedule.
Movement helps both our physical body and our minds. It can range from activities like walking, running and swimming to dancing, HIIT, weight lifting and hiking.
Nourishing your body is not only about eating healthy, whole foods, it's about doing activities you enjoy like painting or listening to music for example.
As humans, we are social beings and are meant to feel connected to others. Foster connection by calling a friend or volunteering.
Taking time to be still and relax is essential to processing our emotions and showing up as our best selves. Stillness can be found in meditation, prayer or a good night's sleep.
