There are so many complexities of living with health challenges. Just to have someone who can really hear and support you with these complexities is nurturing to your biology. Ashley Homstad and Lacey Dodd have navigated these challenges and are ready to support. They have found the maps of well-being provided by Organic Intelligence® and OI Founder Steve Hoskinson to be relevant across the wide spectrum of the chronic illness experience. Connect with Ashley and Lacey, and others who have found support for well-being, and get your own map for your own unique path of well-being.
Ashley and Lacey will consistently present a topic that can help you navigate toward feeling better and living better. It might be reflections on grief, on navigating the health care system, on daily living skills, on relationships…Do you have a topic suggestion? Email us at [email protected].
Join Ashley and Lacey every month to talk with our growing NOW community. Live, online — you can ask questions and share your experience of NOW. Participate as much or as little as you like — listen in or check-in. Only you know what’s best for you. We’re honored to be a part of this journey with you.
A Bounty of Compassion
To nurture our well-being, we are constantly honing what is too much — even of a good thing — and what is just right. Steve says, “Nothing is achieved by trying too much.” We’ll provide you with maps that will help you get the feel of the sweet spot of “just right” — which we often discover by doing too much, and then too little. That’s the honing process!
Another rich benefit of joining NOW is accessing the archive of webinars and bonus videos created by Steve Hoskinson and past NOW host, Paula DeMasi. Topics previously covered include: Befriending Pain, Managing Setbacks with Ease and Pleasure, Lifestyle Strategies, Staying on Track, and more!

When It's the Right Time for You
We’ll offer you a LOT of resources, including links to websites, relevant research, interviews with experts, recorded meditations, writings, etc. We understand the impulse to get better can be like deep hunger, and once you find something that really helps, there’s a temptation to overindulge. Take time, and let the resources we provide be part of your practice of finding the sweet spot for input of not too much and not too little. Everything will be right here, recorded for you — when it’s the right time, for you.
