Being generously witnessed by others in our deepest truth can be profoundly healing...
What I love about Christian's brilliant Heart IQ work, is that it offers an amazing framework for healing, growth, and transformation -- by tapping into the power of groups. Instead of coaching one-on-one, we work within the amplified field that we create by coming together as a Medicine Circle.
As a group facilitator, I bring all of my experience with other personal growth modalities into this sacred container. This includes my earlier training in Focusing, Internal Family Systems, Inner Empathy, and Co-Counseling.
How I came to Heart IQ: My professional background is in organization development. I work with leaders who want to help their organizations become more collaborative. I also support groups who are working together on common projects (whether in business or in the non-profit realm) so they can learn to work together more creatively and effectively.
At the same time, to replenish myself for my consulting work, I nourish myself with ongoing personal growth and development opportunities. And that's how I discovered Heart IQ! I began doing this work for myself, and am now delighted to be sharing it with others, as well.
What I offer in Heart IQ: In the last few years, I've been offering personal growth and community-building sessions for women in my region, the Berkshires. I call them Deepening Our Joy gatherings, and they are deeply grounded in Heart IQ. These supportive, high-energy circles are a wonderful opportunity to create a powerful healing community with one another, to love ourselves and one another, just as we are, and also, to expand our personal range.
At the same time, my work continues to evolve. Everything in our world today, is calling on each of us to discover new and creative ways to manifest our leadership. As a spirit-based activist, I feel called to offer this work to women and men in the social change arena. We need supportive containers where we can nurture ourselves, and grow more fully into our leadership.
I am also drawn to offer this work to people who are "professional listeners" -- therapists, group facilitators, mediators. The more we ourselves can be witnessed in a powerful and loving circle, the more ease and joy we can bring to our work with others. And so I've been creating "Heart-Centered Listening Circles", where we can deepen our practice, together.
