Many teams know they need help to manage stress (better). Often, inspiration arises from understanding more about the central nervous system and its links to our physical and mental health. This session presents the latest neuroscience (including polyvagal theory) and uses the Personal Stress Prescription so that each participant designs their own plan by the end of 45 minutes together.
Here are Susan and Gabby leading Neuroscience of Stress and Self-Prescriptions in May.
During a pandemic, we must boost our immune systems so we can resist infection even after coronavirus exposure.

This interactive session was developed for civilians at the Pentagon, and has been tweaked, presented, and enjoyed by many audiences over the last six years. The presentation gives three directives of how to design five-minute "boosts" that bring productivity and joy. We also look at dozens of ways to practice. Here's one Susan version https://youtu.be/XeolMhxCMos. And this one, led by Susan and Ty, had a surprise cryotherapy session at the end: Take Five: The Best 5-Min Brain Breaks
"Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world.
All things break. All things can be mended.
Not with time, as they say, but with intention.
So go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally.
The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you."
