IPNB and Empathy Teleseminar. Single or Series (Telephone and Web)


A Monthly IPNB Teleseminar with Sarah is a 1-1/2 hour exploration of current research into the brain and how it behaves in relationship. Sarah uses the lenses of Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) and Nonviolent Communication (NVC) to emphasize how we change and heal in relationship with one another. The participants call in on a joint conference call line while viewing a web-based visual presentation, to engage the information through multiple channels. There is usually an additional 1/2 hour wrap-up after the initial session is over so that people can comment on what is significant to them – this provides the learning community with another way to integrate the information. Recordings and visuals are provided to participants and subscribers, and are for sale after the teleseminar is over in the store here on this website.

IPNB and Empathy Teleseminar in July, Tuesday evening 7/25 at 7pm Pacific time: Asperger’s and Autism: How Empathy Can Contribute (90 minutes with optional 30 min q&a afterwards)

Have you ever wondered about empathy and the asperger’s/autism spectrum? If you are anything like me, you have had sweet and deep experiences of empathy with folks who identify as being on the spectrum. And then we hear about research showing various impacts of the spectrum affecting the
social circuitry. How can these two things be possible? What is the latest research into asperger’s/autism revealing? People have been asking me for this teleseminar for the last four years, and here we finally are
– join me on July 25 to explore what scientists have been discovering, and how empathy fits into the picture.

On Monday's at noon you will have the opportunity to work several times with Gloria over the course of the program in a 45 minute depth-empathy session within a circle of warm companionship; focusing on depth-empathy processes which sustain deeper brain integration, self-connection, and the creation of warm accompaniment.

Working with Gloria supports you to become aware of your Whole Being - mind, body, emotion, and spirit. Gloria has worked with individuals, couples, families and groups for over 17 years supporting participants to release patterns of surviving that have outlived their usefulness and discover how to thrive in the present.

Making Marketing Happen Home Study Course: Empathy Based Business Support


Are you a secret entrepreneur? Are you challenged by marketing? Are you stumped from realizing the challenge of getting the word out about what you have to offer? Have you ever noticed that there are invisible blocks that keep you from advertising yourself effectively and letting people know what you do? Sarah and Gloria have noticed this phenomenon themselves and with their characteristic curiosity and can-do spirit they have decided to spend 2016 helping themselves and a select group of others to implement the techniques so beautifully described in one of the bibles of marketing (title to be supplied upon registration) while simultaneously exploring any emotional blocks that arise in the effort to move into the world.

Each one hour class (for a total of 25 classes) consists of a 15 minute segment on one of the chapters in the book, followed by depth processes focused on the blocks that prevent self-marketing. Processes used include sacred vow work, lightening the implicit load and constellation work. This program includes a subscription to Sarah’s monthly IPNB teleseminars and will have a support/accountability buddy option. For those who are interested there is an Equine Facilitated Learning and Coaching workshop at Gloria’s Healing with Horses Ranch.

The cost is $475 for a one-time payment - Click Here
