Join us! I have waived fees for these classes during the Pandemic.
This summer, I am writing and revising my next book, Ordinary Trauma Extraordinary Healing: Inspiring stories and powerful practices to ease the pain of being human. My plan for Sunday classes is to give you a preview of the various chapters and sections in a highly focused way through inquiry.
My ongoing work is to help people heal the pain of their “ordinary” trauma and to build resilience by learning to calm their nervous system, access higher level brain functioning, and meet the challenges of the present with clarity and compassion. Then the pandemic swept in.
We process our collective fear and grief on top of our own individual pain. It is more urgent than ever to understand the basics of trauma, learn how to down-regulate our nervous system, and cultivate patience and kindness for ourselves and others.
Let’s explore this together over the summer. Details

We need safe places to speak our truth. To be listened to, believed and experience the trust that grows from a foundation of kindness and respect. These classes can be that place.
Safety IS the treatment. In this experiential series of classes together we do practices to begin and deepen trust in yourself and nurture authentic kindness and compassion within. We cover the essentials of “how it works” so you understand your body, feelings, nervous system, shame, judgment and the essential role of social trust and connection. You strengthen your capacity to see through and release identification with experiences that commonly lead to core deficiency beliefs of unworthiness, unlovability – that feeling like there is something basically wrong with you.

Feelings and Emotions
Sundays 10AM Eastern March and April
Feel it. Heal it.
What are you feeling right now? What emotions are you experiencing? What sensations are in your body?
There is a thought component to feelings. We have memories that come as images and words and they evoke emotion.
We feel emotions in our body. The heat of anger rolls over our chest and neck and makes us sweat. The coldness and contracted muscles when we feel left out or excluded. The loose relaxation in our limbs when we are feeling safe. We may not be aware of it, but feelings always involve our bodies.
What are the messages you heard as a child about feelings? Difficult emotional experiences might have felt overwhelming when we were a child and we were unable to “process” them, to feel them.
We explore and inquire from a polyvagal and trauma informed perspective. Our nervous system and primitive brain generate much of our thought and emotion and it is based on evidence from our life experiences. As we understand that we are not broken or fundamentally wrong, we can see our childhood strategies from a new perspective. We are able to deeply connect with ourselves with kindness and compassion.
Gabor Maté, James S. Gordon, Pete Walker, Joan Tollifson, Rick Hanson, and 10 more amazing people generously gave us help during the Radical Recovery Summit. They’re back with pandemic support bringing more FREE programs, workshops and wisdom. Their brief interviews live HERE
