The End of TraumaTM Course is a 10-week online course that teaches you the tools and practices that work specifically with your biology to get you out of suffering and onto the path of deeper healing.
When our systems are well synchronized, we are well. And when they are out of sync, we are not well, and we are suffering. Learn to see the signs in your own system that are signals for the return of that re-synchronization process.

"Re-Sync Your Psychology" is how we invite you to reconsider what has been taught about "psychological trauma." Our history of trauma — personally and professionally — has us looking in the wrong direction. The answers lie in another question. The question is how our systems want to grow and heal in this very moment.
"This course has been such a potent key in unlocking my access to presence and joy! I have intellectually understood certain concepts, but with this course I have had direct experiences with presence, ease, beauty of life and feeling alive. Thank you!"

Everything you'll be practicing and learning in the End of Trauma Course is designed to work WITH nature. Step by step you'll discover what's right for YOU, by doing the things your nervous system WANTS to do. EASE is the result. With the End of Trauma Course, you'll experience the flow you know is possible.
The headwinds of civilization, early trauma, COVID and "othering" grind away at our humanity. With the End of Trauma Course, every day you will receive support after support for restoration. The daily tools reinforce what we forget, but know to be true as humans: we are made for healing, caring and connection.
The End of Trauma Course deepens your knowing so our shared humanity becomes daily living.
But what are those “feelings”? They are “states” of the physiology. These underlying biochemical states become conscious in the “Channels” of our experience: anxious feelings, anxious thoughts, sensations in the pit of the stomach, anxious images. They ALL reflect the underlying physiological state, and interact in a way that reinforces it. Controlling or directing just one of these Channels will not change the system that caused them to arise. We need to learn to work with all of them.
The simple, good news? Your biology is already sending you signals of support in these channels all the time! Those signals are missed because our attention has been conditioned to focus on “What’s Wrong”. When we learn to work in each of these channels — Image, Sensation, Orientation, Meaning, Affect (ISOMA) — and reinforce the supports coming from our biology, we make a difference where the problem started.
In the End of Trauma Course, we learn the science and practices to find the resources for healing. They are invisible at first, but are actually available in each moment. Week by week, you will learn to find support in each of the ISOMA channels, and experience for yourself how their interrelatedness holds the key to true system growth and resilience. When you do, your wellbeing and healing rest not on what you “do”, but are sustained by the organization of your physiology — your nature.
The End of Trauma Course is built around the way your body, your physiology, is all the time telling you good news - “I want to grow. I want to improve. I want to feel better.” Be the first to know when registration opens for Summer 2021.
Organic Intelligence is a framework, a perspective — a way of seeing and understanding. This is based in a complex of disciplines like systems theory, complexity science, justice practices, clinical psychology, mythology, contemplative practices, anthropology, clinical work, and more. Complexity becomes simple practice in the End of Trauma Course with Steve's teachings in:
In weekly webinars, learn how to practice with the science behind each week's study, and get personal guidance on how to fine-tune the week's practices for your situation. In weekly live coaching, bring your questions in for personal feedback to see and use the support that's coming in your life. Replays will be available in your End of Trauma Course. Not able to attend all the sessions live? Email your question in beforehand to get it answered.
The End of Trauma Course (EOTC) is meant to be taken over and over again. It's the growth pattern: grow, rest/integrate, grow. We grow in EOTC, then rest and integrate it, then come back and grow more. It's the organic path of real system change. Live Coaching continues after your first time through the course. Join Now & get Weekly Live Coaching with Steve in your 2nd round of the course.
As an EOTC Alumni, you'll be invited to join each new round of EOTC. Many EOTC Alumni have taken the course 5 times or more! You’ll receive weekly live coaching with OI Coaches and can continue to connect with the EOTC community in the private EOTC Alumni Facebook group.
Brief, daily meditations help ease your system into healthy pattern of specific nervous system states. This "state shift" process helps your system feel better, and incorporate the bio-rhythms that help us learn and grow. These are known as Strategic Use of Perception (SUP) practices. Listen as Steve guides you through the channels in which you experience the world: Image, Sensation, Orientation, Meaning, and Affect (ISOMA). Then, we learn to do this ourselves: to tune into those channels of support from our biology, and how their interrelatedness holds the key to resilience, and then into bio-sync, or Prosilience. Bonus materials for sleep, pain, surgery, and disorientation are included. Your library will be there for you from now on. Downloadable, these will go with you and grow with you.
Get direct teachings from Steve on WHY we need to look to our biology for real growth and change in our lives. We know that our systems heal naturally. Learn how to use and sequence tools that prime for your personal bandwidth growth. More bandwidth means less confusion, more ease in processing emotions, access to intuition, and better focus. Incremental, digestible steps in the End of Trauma Course signal safety to your system, and build the pathways for re-synchronization and real system change. You will learn your own biology's language and, with the help of the OI Maps, you’ll know how to better understand and support natural emergence and healing.

"A very powerful learning for me is that ‘negative thoughts come from a biology that's trying to keep an already negative-bias system stable, and therefore stuck.’ It just feels like I've got hope for turning this around now. As I told a friend yesterday: this course feels like ‘my way out.’ And it's all so ‘simple.’"
Trauma is not the problem. Trauma is a fact of life. With daily practices, the End of Trauma Course creates the states that sooth and strengthen a wounded system enough to allow it to let go into growth and change.

"In a million years, I wouldn’t have guessed that an online course called End of Trauma would have been life-changing. Having lifetime access to these resources and community means the learning and growing never have to stop."
Why is ease so transformative? When it’s organic, in harmony with our biology, effortlessness becomes transformational. Solid science is behind everything in OI, and is taught in short, daily informational videos. Take a look — this is one of the INFO videos. It is from Week 7, ”Affect Week" (4:54).
"Organic Intelligence has been an absolute life changer for me personally and for my career. It’s a framework for living your life in a way that’s meaningful and joyful. I feel so empowered to know that this scientifically grounded magic comes from my own biology! I’m astounded by the results and how fast they’ve come!"
"I can't contain this love burst for your program. It is the only therapeutic map I have found that encompasses and enriches all of the experiences that I have found most useful and helpful in life. There's so much to learn and explore around this, but I just wanted to say thank you."
Matthew Fogarty, Counselor, and Author of "A Place-Based Guide to Wonder"
Thank you so much. I feel that this course is a landmark in my evolving as a human being. I still have a lot to integrate but it has been already a life saving process for me. Thank you ever so much!
Sofia Figueiredo, EOTC Alumni
