Webinar #1 Learn what stress and trauma actually are, the spectrum of suffering from acute to chronic, and the stages of healing.
You will understand the mind-body effect of stress and trauma and the stages of healing. You will be able to identify how your struggles are affecting you and why, what stage of healing you are mostly in, and how to navigate the stages whilst being gentle with yourself.
Webinar #2 Mindful Embodiment Part 1: Effectively Deal with triggers and reactions.
You will learn to confidently remain in the present without stress or blame when an external circumstance or behaviour seems to cause you pain/suffering. This will empower you to navigate your day to day life without plummeting into stress/panic/blame and so on. From allowing yourself to feel your feelings safely, to learning embodiment skills, setting boundaries for yourself, and mastering effective communication with others, with this webinar you will become empowered to deal with much of what the world throws at you.
Webinar #3 Mindful Embodiment Part 2: Put into place powerful daily practices for experiencing ongoing peace and long-term healing.
In addition to learning practices in response, you will master ongoing habits to cultivate peace and contentment. After a short foray into the foundational practices of mindfulness, drawing on different traditions and specifically tailored to those who have suffered trauma/extreme stress, this webinar equips you with concrete skills. If put into practice regularly, the learnings from this webinar will enable to you experience more regular states of expanded consciousness or bliss - as a foundation for a peaceful and a contented experience of life.
In addition to helping you see how your past affects how your body-mind creates ongoing stress, this program takes the most powerful techniques from contemplative traditions (like Buddhism) and applies them in a modern, day-to-day context. See some video resources about my approach HERE.
Cultivate empowerment from within, so that you can move forward in life.
This package is for anyone who is ready to learn the skills of self-awareness, self-love, emotional processing, and habit changing. Whether you are just feeling stuck and want change, or have completed a rehabilitation program and are ready for the next step of personal development.
It's Personal and IN PERSON
I'm Michelle Dixon, practitioner and facilitator. My passion is to empower you with tools and strategies to help yourself create the life you want long after we work together, using neuro-linguistic programming, advanced bodywork techniques, and powerful mindfulness processes. Unlike many other programs, this is not a do-it-alone online course. You and I actually meet in person or via Skype for 3 life-changing sessions, and you participate in a live group for a three-part webinar series (and you get the recording forever).
Cutting-Edge Holistic Approach
Working with sensation and emotion has been shown again and again to be the most important factor in recovering from crisis and trauma, and for creating real and lasting change. I help you get in touch with your own unique way of being, to change how you operate from the inside out.
I am a male in my 40's and I am a survivor of childhood and sexual abuse. My sadness led me to edge of 3 suicide attempts in my adult life, all of those wanting to extinguish the pain after each of the new trauma events. Michelle's nurturing nature has helped me overcome the hurdles of being stuck in a victim mindset. I am now a true believer that the body holds trauma, and without awareness and assistance, the trauma keeps surfacing to either be ignored or addressed.

Michelle offers an amazing value in her workshops. Her passion for the work and a caring and patient approach to the participants make for a beautifully enriching and heart opening experience for everybody present. I recommend her to all my friends!
I've participated in workshops with Michelle. She's a very caring and professional and hold space to let go, connect with my heart and heal. I enjoyed the experience and now I'm using some of the tools I learnt with my clients. It's different. It's challenging. It's worth it. It's healing. Thank you Michelle, for your kindness, support and great energy! Claudia Boymouchakian, Purple Angel Healing Centre.
She has an ability to wade through the mire of distractions and help you work out where your focus should truly be to balance your life. I am very goal driven but I have been using some less important goals to avoid doing what I need to do for myself, my family, my business and my spiritual/ church life as well as fitness and relationship. She's helping me to get these into to a better balance so that I don't live with the constant frustration of wearing my self out trying to keep everyone else happy. She is helping me focus on setting the right goals! Visualising them and working to achieve them because I really want to achieve them and not just because it will stop me from failing.

I operate with 4 guiding principles that are the foundation of my coaching and workshops.
LOVE is the source of all transformation.
Love is the source of all transformation - love of self, love of others. Being kind and patient with yourself during suffering is the foundation of healing. Acceptance and non-judgement are cornerstones of self-love, and this must begin with what we extend to ourselves.
Transformation is possible.
Transformation of yourself, and your life, is possible. It takes persistence, self-love through setbacks, putting one foot after the other. The brain can rewire how it experiences and acts in the world, and early attachment wounds can be redressed with time.
Change requires working with sensation.
We must work with the body's sensations and reactions as well as the mind (thoughts, logic, critical thinking) in order to change. The body is the storehouse of trauma, and the repository of memory. Clearing and re-setting on this level is vital for lasting transformation.
We ground in a vision for our life.
Rather than react or rest in acceptance, we embrace and move towards a positive vision for our lives. This is not the same as having goals. A vision is as much a feeling, sensation, and emotional reality as it is tangible achievements. The vision fills us with the motivation we need to persist with strategies to make transformation possible.
