Your Guides

As occupational therapists in acute care & rehab we’ve had to navigate the particular demands of the healthcare system.

And as martial arts practitioners we have decades of experience working with our nervous system to remain calm, open and balanced under pressure without retreating.

We know how using the inseparable link between the mind and body increases our ability to stay connected to ourselves when the going gets tough.

And we want you to have that!

What DO You Get

Videos One or two 10 minute videos introduce each module’s material, provide critical information about why the subject is being addressed and explain the week’s exercises and daily practices.

Practical tools The videos are supplemented with experience based exercises and easily implemented daily practices that deepen your understanding of critical aspects of the week’s topic.

Resources Downloadable PDFs, audios, supplemental videos and/or interviews accompany each lesson

Community Support We encourage community interaction through the Social Sharing section at the bottom of every page, sparked by a weekly question or two. Did you know that sharing with others improves and accelerates self-insight and skill building?

Coaching We monitor the Social Sharing section to learn from our clients’ experiences, listen to recommendations and most importantly, provide feedback and answer questions based on our years of experience working with and through the body + mind.

Flexibility Learn whenever you want. Feel free to toggle back and forth between lessons, to watch the videos as many times as you’d like, to access the course again and again as you need or want . . .

What to expect in the live sessions?

The hour long session will provide:

  • Live practice of one or more of the exercises provided in the course
  • Breakout rooms to discuss the worksheets
  • Direct Q&A with us to discuss any questions, doubts or uncertainties 
  • Encouragment along the way from us and your fellow cohort members

What You Don't Get

A course on body language

Add-ons to an already overloaded work day

Pen & paper solutions for time-management and efficiency

Stand alone “How to” or “self-care” lists

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Good question! That was the biggest challenge we had designing this program. Watching the videos and reading the material will put things into your head but won’t provide you with what you need to incorporate the work into your day-to-day living. That’s why we provide you with exercises and a daily practice with each lesson. That is what gets the information from the head . . . to the body . . . and back! We also encourage you to explore the supplementary materials. And don’t forget to let us know how it goes!

Our body holds a lot of information that can help us navigate stress. Because we live in a “heady” culture, we often neglect this useful information, only noticing stress when it’s too late. The great thing is that everything the body provides is very practical and concrete, which makes it easy to use!

That can happen pretty quickly! Most of the exercises will provide you with ​immediate ​feedback as you are doing them, and you can use that awareness in your daily life. In challenging situations it can take a little more practice to use the skills that the exercises are developing. The more deliberate and frequently you find opportunities to practice, the sooner and more profoundly you will notice results.

We do not consider this an “either/or” situation. The skills you develop through this course are the foundation for implementing evidence-based resilience training and burnout prevention strategies, including:

  • Awareness: Knowing when you or another is stressed
  • Communication: Maintaining open, non-judgemental communication
  • Empowerment: Feeling engaged, interested, motivated and effective in your work
  • Prioritizing: Knowing what is most important and meaningful to you and being able to act on that
  • Control: Having a sense that you are in the driver’s seat
  • Balance: Engaging in leisure, social and general non-work activities in addition to your work day.

Unlike other courses, we generally don’t provide tactics, strategies, a list of how-to’s or dos and don’ts. We focus on how you can utilize and maximize the information that’s inherently available to you.

Definitely! Although we target people in the service field this course can be beneficial to everyone that works in a demanding environment and wants to leave work feeling satisfied and energized.

More ease & connection in your relationships

Being that awesome caregiver and colleague, even when you’re more stressed. 

It starts with the body!
Too touchy feely . . . ? We don’t think so

Nothing is more immediately recognizable than feeling your stomach constrict during a difficult conversation. And we all have those moments when we want to say something but our heart rate increases and palms get sweaty, and we keep it inside. Or maybe you blurt something out and later regret it . . .

While we might understand that we need a bite of food when our stomach rumbles, we have unlearned the skill of listening to and interpreting the signals the body and mind connection provides: concrete, practical information that we can use day in, and day out.

When the Body Comes to Mind starts with basic awareness and builds up to tapping in to the subtle cues of the body. Learn how to use that information to recognize when you’re uncomfortable and to change a set pattern of behavior; to create more options for how to respond and to find the courage to hold the line.
