Belonging & Connection
Family. The look and shape of family is evolving before our eyes. In this COVID era, we are faced with so many questions, and parenting has taken on unanticipated challenges. OI Family Community with Amie Summers is a heart-full offering into these challenging times with specific support for families and parents.
Based in the understandings of Organic Intelligence and its complex systems framework, Amie Summers, LICSW and OI Faculty, offers accompaniment for facing challenging times. In OI Family Community learn practices and strategies to better attune to and understand what your child is attempting to communicate with their behaviors and how to best support them - laying the foundation for healing, growth, and greater connection.
OI Family is a community of mutual support to cultivate a place of belonging and connection in our families. Together and in community we support each other in growing connection and ease in our families, and learn the skills we can practice at home which create a deep trust that grace will be given and received.
Here we will learn quick access to the most powerful and most human compass: belonging and connection.
All it takes is a little support for the seeds of our nature to take root.
Get support for yourself and your family around...
How to anticipate when patience is running out, and what to do right away
How to step aside of potentially hurtful family patterns that have been passed down from one’s own family and cultivate patterns that are nurturing for everyone
How to navigate space and together time in a way that’s good for everyone
How to hear the hidden wisdom coming from unlikely family members
What to do in those times when you feel like you’re not enough
How to recognize your own deep wisdom that is showing up in this community of connection
Each month Amie will share a theme or topic that can support your family’s movement in the direction of living with greater ease and connection. It might be easy ways to:
- strengthen relationships with our children
- creative ideas for navigating upsets
- supporting our children in becoming more of who they already are
- what does discipline really mean?...
- and specific topics offered by you and other OI Family members
Monthly webinars will also include time in large and small groups and in growing our mutual support -- because raising children truly is meant to be done together!
Receive a (short!) meditation recorded by Amie each month especially for our OI Family Community. In the meditation, you’ll be invited to bring specific strategies and practical exercises in your daily living that will support the continued movement of your family in the direction of ease and enjoyment! How much or little you engage with these offerings is up to you! You’re encouraged to feel out, over time, the “just right” amount.
In-between the monthly webinars, Amie will be ongoingly available for support, including around how the strategies and practices are going for you. Each week Amie will share a new video response to questions coming in from parents and carers in the community. What’s arising in one family is almost certainly arising in another’s, and we can learn from each other and connect in this way.
Amie Summers is a licensed social worker (LICSW) and faculty at Organic Intelligence®.

Her two greatest teachers are her children, who are experts in living playfully, with ease, and in the moment!
