You are no stranger to dedication and responsibility. You've worked hard and cared for others all of your life. You've benefited from doing these things. But a life of hard work and caring is also a life of stress.

Stress and tension are built into your life and seated in your body.

You can do something about this.

For years you have created and carried tensions in your body. The way to unravel your stress is by learning how to dissolve the layers of tensions you have built up over time.

Why does this course work?

Deep in your core, at the heart of your being, you are already calm. You are already at peace. You are already joyful. This is the Real You at your Calm Core.

The Real You is the deepest, sweetest part of you who savors everything good in your life. It’s also the You who encounters the most difficult parts of your life with profound grace and humor.

Consistently calm. Consistently at peace. Consistently filled with bliss simply because you are alive. This is who You really are. Your calm core just gets covered over with layers and layers of tension built up over years of hard work and dedication.

No one has ever taught you how to unravel these layers because it’s not what you will find elsewhere.

We have a culture of “no pain no gain” and of “pushing ourselves.” So all of our “solutions” to stress relief and self-discovery involve adding tension to your already tight core. Even stretching adds tension -- you can feel your muscles tighten when you stretch them. Stretched muscles strain and torque your bones out of alignment. When your bones are out of alignment, tension builds throughout your body.

Even meditation techniques you may have tried add tension -- you are not taught how to support yourself so that you remain comfortable while you meditate. This inhibits your meditation experience because it adds tension to your body.

No one has ever taught you to move and live while creating only a minimum of stress and tension. You can learn to do this.

This course is designed for your success.

The way to dissolve your tensions – physical, mental, and emotional, is by being gentle with yourself.

This self-paced course guides you through a series of gentle practices to dissolve your deepest tensions using your body, breath, and mind.

Through these practices, you learn to redirect your neural pathways (neuroplasticity) to create mental and emotional habits of calm, ease, and clarity. You improve your proprioception, interoception, and exteroception.

Both the practices and the order in which you learn them are based in your anatomy – the anatomy of calm that your body and mind are built for.

The practices are simple, sustainable, and effective. Once inside, you’ll find an option for personal coaching if you want to go deeper.

I invite you to take the course with me.

You have nothing to lose but your tensions.
