Welcome to Nurturing the Heart
with the Brain in Mind
For the safety of all attending retreats in person, everyone must provide proof of COVID vaccination. Currently, we will also be asking participants to test the night before we begin. As the situation changes, our safety measures will evolve as well. Thank you for your kind understanding.
We are delighted to announce that we are expanding our teaching group this year and next, with Vanessa, Karen, and Dan 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.
Vanessa Timmons, healer, life coach, writer, social justice activist, and advocate brings 35 years of service and support to the healing classes she is offering: Restoring Ourselves, Journaling as a Healing Practice, and Somatic Journaling. She and Mari Alexander will co-facilitate Embodied Liberation: A Racial Justice Workshop. Information about the healing workshops here and the racial justice workshop here. Click on their names for their biographies.
Bonnie Badenoch, LMFT, 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. Information about this offering is here.
