“My muscles soften and my breath slows when I reflect on the gift of Rebecca’s teaching. She offers specific resources to engage the wisdom in our bodies. Her deep well of specific thought and movement practices enable us to cultivate the awareness that resides throughout our whole being, and integrate it with the awareness we think resides in our minds. I return often to insights I gained in her workshops.”
Upcoming Live Class Series:
Conversational Consciousness: An 8 week class series to take the guess work out of having satisfying connection with others
Have you ever been offered advice when you didn’t want it? Or wanted to be a supportive listener to someone, but don’t know exactly what they want from you? I bet you have!
Talking is one of the primary ways we connect with each other, but so often we converse in ways that don’t give us fully what we want or even lead to disconnection.
The wonderful news is that we can have deeply satisfying connection and take the guess work out of conversations quite easily. The key is to know what kinds of choices there are in sharing and listening to one another, and get comfortable asking for what we want in the interaction. With more choice and clarity as to what each person wants in the conversation, a remarkable level of relaxation and connection can happen. Doesn’t that sound nice? It is!
I hope that you will join this group of people who are all interested in this topic.
If you join, you will:
* Learn an array of choices when it comes to listening to another (ex. offer advice, encouragement, quiet listening, empathy and more)
*Get comfortable with asking for what you would like in a conversation and asking what the other person would like
*Notice your conversational habits
*Practice having talking connect you more deeply to yourself and your sense of shared humanity

“Rebecca approaches teaching from a centered and curious place. It helps me settle into a place which allows me to get more out of the class. Rebecca curates the classes well so that they are balanced between listening, practicing helpful exercises and having good discussions in one on ones and small groups.”
Self-Paced Classes Via Recordings:
1. Regulation in the Nervous System:
A regulated nervous system is one where you can feel what’s happening clearly, and respond well without excessive fear or reactivity. It is the physiological state of resilience from which you can make clear choices. In this class we will learn to recognize the state of our nervous system in any given moment and use tools to come back to regulation when we have gone into fight/flight or freeze.
Includes 12 hrs of class time via audio recording, class handouts, and exercises to do on your own. Cost: $195. Click here to order the class.
2. Deepening Empathy and Compassion:
Directly connecting with our feelings and desires with kindness is key to returning us to wellness when we are struggling. It also connects us with our gifts and passions. Developing compassion and empathy for others keeps our hearts open and helps us relate to others with more wisdom and understanding. In this class we will deepen our compassion for ourselves and others both as an end to itself, as well as to create the platform for action that stems from open-heartedness rather than fear or reactivity.
Includes 16 hrs of class time via audio recording, class handout, and exercises to do on your own. Cost: $255. Click here to order the class.
3. Wise Action:
This class is for you if: *You sometimes get overwhelmed, anxious or burned out when you’re faced with the intense news of the world, and you want to be able to respond in ways that are sustainable and that open your heart to this life.
*You want to live more and more from a place of authenticity and joy, but sometimes fall into “shoulds”, guilt, or automaticity.
*You’re curious to learn about common patterns we take on in action (victim, hero, judge), and want to be able to redirect yourself when you’ve fallen into one of them.
Includes 12 hrs of class time via audio recording, class handout, and exercises to do on your own. Cost: $195. Click here to order the class.

“Rebecca’s workshops offer a mature, generous, and warm experience where I feel I am being consciously invited to do clear self contemplation. The courses have led me in a deeply embodied way to reflect on how I respond to daily life. Each class I leave with a clear study of how I might execute change with the goal of accessing a more grounded and resourced relationship with myself and the world around me.”
