Self-Regulation Trainings

Hooray we are rolling out Self-Regulation:Creating Habits of Ease. Very excited by the many groups and organizations bringing in the Ease Keys.

We have a Self-Regulation series that is good for everyone who’s looking for effective self-care practices – or – wants to care for their nervous system, vital organs, and brains. If you’d like to work better with stress in order to bring out your brilliance, come join us. We are trying a flexible tuition model. Find discount codes on the registration page.

We also have a series Understanding the Anatomy of Self-Regulation. The series is designed for healthcare practitioners and those who want to learn even more about their magnificent bodies. You’ll understand why the Ease Keys practices are so efficient and explore client and clinical applications in addition to caring for your own nervous system.

We are grateful to be sharing Self-Regulation practices as part of our Self-Healing Communities efforts.… Continue Reading...

Disruptive Conversations about Death in the Healthcare System

This week I am working with the Vitaltalk team to imagine how to scale their work Nurturing healthy connections between clinicians and patients facing serious illness.   They are such an amazing team to work with as they’ve been teaching & working with deep authenticity, presence, co-learning, emergence, honesty, courageous humanity and HUMOR.    How do you scale THAT!

Working from a Livings Systems Model

We explored several aspects of working within a living systems model.  First is the nature of change.  We explored the dance between Chaos and Order – and the challenge of finding the new forms of organization that serve the mission as the community and world changes.  The need to be adaptive as part of this dynamic.  This is the The Challenge of Walking the Chaordic Path.… Continue Reading...
