Speaking & Group Trainings

Empower performance, face-to-face

Group gatherings are as old and essential to wellness as any medicine. In fact, the contemplative and healing traditions from which I developed Contemplative Biofeedback™ emphasize group participation as the key to transformation.

I have given presentations to all sorts of groups, including government offices, corporations, university departments, medical conferences, patient groups, Five Star health spas, retreat and yoga centers, church groups, integrative health conferences, and private gatherings.

I would be happy to develop a topic or program to suit your audience and needs. Feel free to CONTACT me to discuss your ideas and needs.
