Welcome to Nurturing the Heart

with the Brain in Mind

We are delighted to announce that we are expanding our teaching group this year and next, with Vanessa, Mari, Karen, Heidi, and Pearl joining Jo and Bonnie. They are people who have deeply immersed themselves in Interpersonal Neurobiology and Relational Neuroscience for decades, embodying it, living it in their personal as well as professional lives. Our community is so fortunate to have these wise and wonderful people sharing their hearts and their wisdom.

Karen Welch, LMFT and Heidi Struble, MFA, with decades of deep study and practice between them, are facilitating the Year-Long IPNB Immersion and Heart pf Trauma. You can read their biographies by clicking on their names.

Vanessa Timmons, healer, life coach, writer, social justice activist, and advocate brings 35 years of service and support to the healing class she is offering:  Journaling as a Conversation with Our Inner World.

She and Mari Alexander will co-facilitate Embodied Liberation: A Racial Justice Workshop. Click on their names for their biographies.

Pearl Waldorf, MEd, LPC, CGP, somatic therapist, long-term student of IPNB, and certified group psychotherapist is offering single-session classes in Being with Difficult Emotions and will soon announce a year-long group psychotherapy training. Enjoy her biography by clicking on her name.

Bonnie Badenoch, PhD, LMFT (Retired), and Jo Hadlock-King, LICSW will be teaching Therapy as Spiritual Practice. Many who have come to the year-long training have expressed an interest in the connection between spirituality and the work we do, and this 3-day retreat will spend time in that tender territory.  Read more about them by clicking on their names.
