Women Building Resilience
Rewiring the nervous system for a deeper mind-body connection.
6 week online self paced class to recalibrate your nervous system and build resilience.
Learning how to RE*WIRE the nervous system to bring more joy, peace, creativity, and resilience into your life.
The nervous system decides which ways we react to any and all situations we come into contact with every day- until we learn to master it ourselves. This learning builds RESILIENCE and the ability to remain in body when we feel stress, overwhelm or old stories that distract us from the now.
This course helps you to sink into your own mind body connection through mindfulness, practicing regulation skills for feeling feelings, learning how to navigate triggers, difficult situations, and life changing decisions. Tuning into the body and learning about your nervous system helps to reverse the affects of stress, trauma and early childhood dysfunctional patterns of relationships.
Re*Wiring is about learning what is underneath- its an introduction to mindfulness, meditation, mindset, and techniques that will help you to heal the patterns that keep you stuck, sad, overwhelmed, anxious and disconnected.
In the course you will be invited to:
- Weekly journal prompts and reflections by PDF worksheet and short description introduction video
- Weekly audio meditations to walk you through practicing
- Weekly pre-recorded video and downloadable slides to help you sink into the material and understand the mind-body relationship and the nervous system
- Wrap up journal prompt questions and weekly check in's to reflect on material at the end of every class
Healing is a very personal journey. In the course I have compiled my best techniques for women who are navigating the stages of healing. This is great for a new mom recovering from postpartum anxiety, a woman healing from childhood neglect or abuse, a young lady who has experienced a violation of spirit and body, sexual assault survivors, women coming out of abusive relationships, midlife readjustments, women who feel disconnected from their bodies or anyone who feels called.
Healing is different for everyone- it is not a linear process and it can be vulnerable and scary- so this online course is for you if you don't have time to do the work in person, find yourself wanting to know more about how to feel better in your body, travel frequently and want practices you can do anywhere, anyone wanting to take the first step, or someone who has been in therapy for years and still feels like there is something missing.
Yoga teachers, coaches, crisis workers, anyone in the service of serving humans- this work will help you to do your job better. Moms, wives, girlfriends, daughters, lovers and humans - this work will teach you how to love yourself and how to make space for more love in your life. Skills we all need, but we were not taught - if you spend anytime in your head, disconnected and unhappy, bored, lost, scared, and find yourself curious about what it might be like to live differently - this course is for you.

You can use your pain to have more empathy, to be of service, to change something unjust, you can make it into art, into love, into wisdom. You can use it to create. To open a broken heart. To build a stronger inner sense of self. Join us to learn how to shift and focus so the pain is repurposed into something positive in your life.

I appreciate you working to heal yourself and in turn, turn your pain into something positive. Healing is a process, the class materials and lectures are like little seeds inside. Keep watering them, giving them sunlight (your time) and reflect on the planting cycles. These seeds will keep growing inside of you, even if you do nothing at all. Trust the process.
A little note from my favorite poet about the unanswered QUESTIONS.
All my love and light beauties. Till we meet again,
Christi Garner LMFT
if you move carefully
through the forest
like the ones
in the old stories
a shimmering bed of dry leaves
without a sound,
to a place
whose only task
but frightening requests
but in this place
beginning to lead everywhere.
you are doing right now,
while you do it,
that can make
that have patiently
waited for you,
that have no right
to go away.
