Every breath, every moment, is an opportunity to choose between reacting and responding. Learning to be curious about our reactions engages a different part of our brain.  We help you learn to "stop", "breathe", "notice", "reflect" and make choices about how you will respond from your integrated heartfelt mind instead of your activated survival brain.

Survival skills contain tremendous power, but unfortunately if you use them as a matter of course, you’ll remain in an overly activated survival mode - constantly preparing for and anticipating danger, rather than coming fully back to normal life.
— Karla McLaren, The Language of Emotions

The more you become aware of, and understand, individually and organizationally, how one's emotions, fears, discomfort, ambiguities, uncertainties, thoughts, words, unresolved conflicts, and behavior impact others (intentional or unintentionally), the less reactive we are, the wiser our decisions, the greater our adaptability to change, the more effective our teamwork and project management is, the kinder we are to one another, and the happier we are. Clarity about job/team fit emerges; strengths and gaps in skills, abilities, roles and responsibilities surface; and insight into process bottlenecks and ineffectiveness become apparent.

We help you bring forth the individual and organizational stories that may be influencing you in unintentional ways. We help you to sort out the individual and organizational lenses, filters, beliefs, blind spots, sacred cows, emotions, leadership shadows, ineffectiveness, shame/blame patterns, and gaps between structure/processes/practices and cultural values that are adversely effecting you. 

The irony is that we attempt to disown our difficult stories to appear more whole or more acceptable, but our wholeness - even our wholeheartedness - actually depends on the integration of all of our experiences, including the falls.
— Dr. Brene Brown, Rising Strong

We work with you to bring more attention to how you hold space for creativity, listening to rogue ideas, active reflection, root cause analysis, and implement learnings from mistakes when they occur. We help you to identify what may no longer be serving your interests and relinquishing it.

Meditation practice is regarded as a good and in fact an excellent way to overcome warfare in the work: our own warfare as well as greater warfare.
— Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
....if we take responsibility for everything we do and do not do - we will authentically encounter our blocks to love. We will come to know our own war with reality, and we’ll develop the willingness to let it go.
— Rolf Gates and Katrina Kenison
