As Inside, So Outside & Vice Versa: Foundations of Internal Community

Foundational Concepts in Building Internal Community

Foundations of Internal Community

For working with people diagnosed with DID and DDNOS.

Build internal system trust and learn to recognize and correct unhealthy power dynamics at play. Participants will learn to facilitate dynamics that foster communication and understand better what it’s like to be present in a chaotic or imbalanced system. We will take a page from external group dynamics, dysfunctional families, and healthy social dynamics to apply them to the internal system, to correct issues caused by unintentional internal bullying, coercion, mis-application of force. Session will include role-play to demonstrate internal dynamics.

Employee Assistance Programs

Businesses can contract with a life coach who focuses on mental health issues, life-satisfaction, and nurturing passion in order to increase employee satisfaction at work, and ultimately improve productivity and tenure within the enterprise. We have special group-rates for working with businesses. It's far less expensive to improve employee morale than deal with lost productivity or hire and train new employees. Employees get full confidentiality, employers can work with the coach on measurable milestones and performance improvements but the employee has to be aware of and agree to the measures used because honesty and transparency are important in a coaching relationship.

The life coach remains an independent contractor for these assignments, and is not told how to do their work with the employee. This helps keep the employee's information confidential, and allows the coach and employee to address life issues both inside and outside of the work environment, all of which have an impact on the employee's mental health that they bring with them to work every day, and can impact productivity, absenteeism and lateness.

Group Coaching Programs

These are our regular group programs. Each program is a combination of class and coaching programs, and with the exception of any introductory seminars they are experiential and require individual and group participation. These programs may be booked for private engagements.

Shamanic Counseling

Coached shamanic journeys to help empower you to find your own answers, and interpret your own spiritual messages and wisdom that is given to you from your otherworldly helpers and teachers.


Can you cultivate endless energy in your life? Of course you can! Come join us for a workshop series where we learn how to better control our energy levels, how to source our daily energy from our heart, and get out of the daily grind. We'll practice mindfulness, heart-centered living, finding our Sacred Cause, eliminating panic energy that's sourced in our adrenals, and get into passion energy that's sourced in our infinite capacity to love what we do.
