Welcome, everyone!  Happy July!

I am sooo grateful for the community we have built here, and hope that you find something of benefit every time you visit my site!

Looking for something to watch?  Check this out.

Prefer to listen to my latest am950 show?  Here it is.  

The next am 950 show is live on Saturday morning, Aug. 5 at 9:00am CST

Interested in this week’s blog?  Happy Reading!

Interested in coming to see me live?  You’re invited!

And this month in the Membership…

July’s focus is on interdependence.  Like any polarity, the dance between dependence and interdependence is often fraught with confusion over where I begin and you end.  One of my favorite takes on this comes from Dr. Jean Twenge :

“This is the dirty little secret of modern life: We are told that we need to know ourselves and love ourselves first, but being alone sucks…
The truth is that human beings DO need other people to be happy — this is just the way we are built… We gain self-esteem from our relationships with others, not from focusing on ourselves….Study after study shows that people who have good relationships with friends and family are the happiest — these things consistently trump money or job satisfaction as predictors of happiness and life satisfaction.”

I encourage you to sign up for a month if you’d like to check that out!

Much love,

Recorded Content Policy

As we all become more sophisticated users of technology for online learning and connection, we strive for a high degree of rigor and transparency around how we handle and use online data. It’s our deep intention to create safe, strong containers for online learning so that you can participate with confidence while supporting our ability to keep, use, and refer to the teaching content that we’ve provided online.

As a result, we want to outline how we approach the recording, storage, and use of the content created for our online programs, including but not limited to Conversations from the Heart calls, Member Calls, recorded webinars, and recorded trainings. We want to make sure that you understand online learning privacy standards for these programs before you participate in an online learning experience with us so that you can make informed choices about your own level of transparency and participation in these programs.

Here is a list of many of the teachers, modalities, and frameworks that I draw from and integrate into my work. There is so much helpful material out there, and I am only listing a few that I have personally used and been trained in.

Nonviolent Communication

NVC is a foundational, grounding philosophy in all my work. I highly recommend that people study this transformative process with experienced trainers and with their local communities. You can learn more about NVC here:

Body-Based Therapies & Trauma Healing

If you have trouble getting “into” your body, you might want to explore a variety of body-based therapies to help you reconnect to your embodied self. Since we often “jump out” of our bodies as a result of trauma, many of these modalities focus on healing trauma. Here are some places to start exploring:

Is this pure NVC training?

Many people who attend my programs are interested in how to apply Marshall Rosenberg’s model of Nonviolent Communication to their personal development journey. As a result, we often refer to the principles and practices of NVC.

The scope of exploration also includes broader principles of nonviolence, compassion, and mindfulness, as well as insights from relational and integral psychology and spiral dynamics.

In my facilitation, guidance, and teaching, I draw from whatever resources seem relevant or useful to the moment, such as archetypes, shadow work, and polarity theory, as well as the work and teachings offered by various NVC teachers.
