You'll be taught the methods and be able to start facilitating classmates or volunteers right away, as we move through basic to very advanced techniques drawn from meditation, guided imagery, self hypnotherapy, breath work, writing, drawing, coaching and Indigenous healing modalities.
Build, develop and market yourself and your business.
The business building exercises are creative projects that will build your online and in-person presenting confidence and profitability. Whether you already have a website, or are starting from scratch creating a site, you’ll learn ways to make it easier for those looking for what you offer, to find you, then understand what you do, why it’s amazing, and if it’s a good fit for them - so you can get the greatest returns on your invested time, energy and expertise.
Some of the mind-body methods you've been taught may be working against your goals.
These mind-body skills work as well for professionals as for lay persons. Interns won't want to miss the opportunity to learn an intervention that can be used with any population. Experts will benefit from an evidence-based way to empower their work.

In this 18 module, immersive training in the art of Somatic Mindful Guided Imagery, you'll learn about, experience, and practice some of the simplest, most powerful and effective ways to get profound results quickly, easily and permanently - in safe and gentle ways - for yourself, and those you serve.
Mind-body tools to relieve stress, pain and anxiety; change unwanted habits, and feel peaceful, confident and empowered.
Somatic engagement that gets you resourced enough to manage your discomfort while growing your strength and stability to be able to not only shift into comfort, but resolve the source origin of the somatic signals. Ground, strengthen and stabilize.
Mindful practices that don’t by-pass what is, but meet you where you are with what’s happening in the moment, in a way that you can gently, respectfully shift your experience into stable strength and competence, until you can resolve the root cause origin of uncomfortable and destabilizing activations in your mind-body. Gently release blockages and toxicities.
Guided practices that connect you to your resources of strength, support and love, empowering courage to journey inwards to clear inner clutter sabotaging your goals, and integrate fragmented aspects of the psyche that have needed to split off, or be hidden away, in order to keep you (and those aspects) safe in threatening circumstances. Connect, radiate and harmonize.
Imagery protocols that activate the power of the individual imagination to elicit your own organic lexicon of images, symbols, sensations, awareness, and felt sense, that are most powerful and effective, in safe and appropriate ways for the individual journeyer. Calm trauma activations on the way to healing them.
A root cause resolving method of mind-body exploration, discovery and healing that is eclectic, holistic, humanistic and non-dogmatic, incorporating skills from many related disciplines including hypnosis, NLP, Jungian Psychology, psychosynthesis, self-actualization and ego-state psychology, meditation, neurobiochemistry, neurophysiology, shamanism and inner child work.
It’s a uniquely transformative blend of trauma-informed mind-body tools to relieve stress, pain and anxiety; change unwanted habits, and feel peaceful, confident and empowered.
