In today’s world we all need full access to our inner and outer resources in order to survive and thrive with the daily demands being presented to us. This course teaches the process of allowing the deep wisdom of the body to inform and help us navigate in our living, working, healing and relating in the world. Coming to respect and listen to this body wisdom as the ground of our knowing helps us rediscover our innate spirituality and to develop our emotional intelligence.

This course will enable you to:

  • Learn about healthy boundaries
  • Understand the dynamics of your own energy patterns
  • Nourish and rejuvenate in healthy, life-giving ways
  • Remain fully grounded and present, even under stress

Participant Testimonial: I am still bathing in the loving energy...

The workshop itself was wonderful! I had not fully understood what it means to be grounded, nor to really have that full sense of being in my body.  I definitely have a deeper understanding of it now. Still have a lot to learn. Looking back, I would say I had felt like an infant with arms and legs flailing, with moments of calm, not understanding or realizing that there was a way I could maintain that calm centered grounded feeling. Throughout the day, I am now practicing grounding and doing the 5 Breath Fill Up. Thank you for these tools Suzanne!

And I am sure you know, but I will say it anyway: Suzanne is a gifted teacher and leader. 🙂 It was a pleasure to be with her and learn from her. It has been a week and I am still bathing in the loving energy. Going deeper.

Thank you.
