What's This About?


Do you want to help people? Do you want to spark creativity, transform negative beliefs, heal trauma or ease conflict?

When you’re clear about your calling, and you have the right tools, you’re in a powerful position to help others. Discover how to empower individuals and to ignite group wisdom by cultivating insight, empathy and the skills that transform relationship.

What has life entrusted to you? Whatever your profession—holistic health, wellness, spirituality, therapist, trainer, educator, presenter, consultant, or coach—our mission is to help you to bring your work into the world in ways that touch the heart, move the imagination, and inspire self-discovery.

Why offer mind-body workshops?

  • To share your information, experience, or story to inspire others
  • To move from a one-to-one practice to group work
  • To grow from teacher or presenter to mind-body facilitator
  • To give back to your community what you know is useful and valuable
  • Or because you just know it needs to be done now!

Our life work is exploring two questions:

  • How to empower individuals
  • How to ignite group wisdom

We choose to do this by helping individuals who feel called to lead workshops do so in a way that leads to transformation—of the group and the individuals in the group. We'd love for you to join us on this journey of learning, growth, and transformation!

The world needs your gifts now more than ever. As Nelson Mandela said, “we must all exceed our own expectations.”
