Part I on OI, Mindfulness, and Chronic Illness with Dr. Paula DeMasi just scratched the surface. In this follow-up Webinar, we'll dig a bit into the science, and focus on tips and tools for more successfully negotiating chronic illness. All the good ideas: mindfulness, exercise, rest, diet -- all must be tailored to what is best for each individual. In this conversation we'll look at how to gauge 'what is best' so everyone has the best chance of improvement.JOIN THE CONVERSATION
The diagnosis and then stark reality of living with a chronic illness can make life feel as though everything is wrong. And trying to create a sense of well being in the face of such loss and challenge is a tall order. Join Dr. Paula DeMasi, Doctor of Economics, Professional Coach, meditation student and practitioner, and Steve Hoskinson for a conversation on recovery from chronic illness. Dr. DeMasi will share of debilitating chronic fatigue syndrome following her academic and professional success, and the journey of ongoing and measurable recovery from chronic illness through her study and practice of Buddhist meditation, psychology, and Organic Intelligence®.WATCH EPISODE 6
For Danny Cohen, Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and mindfulness teacher, he finds that people long for and are nourished by connection - specifically connection with other people that presences our shared humanness
Danny joined Steve Hoskinson in Episode 5 of the Clinical Mindfulness Series and explored insights and principles from Organic Intelligence and Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent/Compassionate Communication (NVC) as a roadmap and artform toward coherent relational systems. They helped shed some light on why conflict, strife, and relational woes are so rampant and what more life-enriching alternatives are possible through strategic use of attention and intentional communication.

In Episode 4 of the Clinical Mindfulness Series, Amie Summers, parent, therapist, and mindfulness practitioner, shares about her evolving mindfulness journey as a parent and as a professional.
Amie brings resources she has found to be particularly supportive during the “stops and starts” in her meditation journey, her work with children, and reflections on mindfulness and family life -- how what seemed like a solo meditation practice has now become an invitation to her children to join in family connection through mindfulness practice. The conversation gives hope and encouragement to all of us who engage the process of developing a more mindful and enjoyable life.WATCH EPISODE 4
