Part 1: A Mindful Path Toward Authenticity in the Workplace 
In this interactive workshop, certified mindfulness teacher, coach, and wellness
practitioner, Carrie-Ann, will guide participants through a series of activities to help them develop greater insight and confidence in the workplace. In other words, participants will learn to see and eventually walk around the metaphorical “hole in their sidewalk” each time.

Participants will experience:

  1. Greater understanding of “emotional wellness” as defined by the National wellness Institute
  2. Creating a “mindful pause” to center emotions and thoughts of themselves and others
  3. Identifying moments and strategies that invoke greater insight and wellbeing in order to make decisions from this place
  4. Creating a “window of tolerance” to help manage emotions
  5. A deep listening experience of self and others

Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing and be ready to engage.

Part 2: Intuition: Accessing Your Inner Sherpa

“Cease trying to work everything out with your minds. It will get you nowhere.
Live by intuition and inspiration and let your whole life be Revelation.” Eileen Caddy

Dr. Norwood will teach current research on Intuition/Heart Intelligence and will highlight parallels to Sherpas and their incredible role in helping climbers navigate their paths, stay safe, and scale the heights of their aspirations. Several approaches will be introduced and practiced.

Participants will:

  1. Explore 3 types of intuition;
  2. Discover practical intuition and how we can access our Inner Sherpa (wisdom) to unfold creative solutions;
  3. Experience how the BODY knows and communicates in creative ways;
  4. Appreciate the power of the heart as we learn to access heart intelligence within ourselves and help clients access theirs.

This seminar is designed for ALL educators, professional coaches, and folks from any profession. Everyone benefits from Heart Coherence.

12 ICF CCEUs or 12 PDUs will be provided.

The pandemic and the emerging awareness of broken educational systems has left educators exhausted and ready to quit. Many educators have moved on. Dr. Norwood discusses Norwood and Burke’s latest research on how heart coherent leaders, coaches, and teachers could offer hope to educators in need of a regenerative, resilient, and nourishing ecosystem. This information is applicable to any profession or client base. Coherence is an efficient state of being, generating alignment between our mind, body, emotions, and spirit through the power of the heart. This electromagnetic field, generated by the heart, is detectable by other individuals and can produce measurable effects on others. Practicing heart coherence techniques yields significant and sustainable improvements in health, wellness, and our performance in all we do. These improvements include significant reductions in stress, depression, anxiety, anger, fatigue, and burnout to name a few. There is an increase in caring, contentment, gratitude, peacefulness, resilience, vitality, and emotional buoyancy. Join Dr. Norwood to learn about the power of heart coherent leading/coaching and how it may represent another evolutionary step in the application of evidence-based approaches to coaching.

Key Points: High State of Beingness

  • Personal heart coherence is foundational in achieving a deeper quality of mindfulness, presence, authenticity, and the building of rapport.
  • Heart coherence techniques yield significant and sustainable improvements in health, wellness, and performance.
  • Personal heart coherence is not only attainable as a coach, but we have the capacity to break through self-limiting patterns by creating new neuropathways.
  • The Coherent Coach embodies the coaching heart/mindset that can impact the field and those we coach in transformational ways.
