What You’ll Learn

A look Inside the Course

We’ve offered NUSHU Group Facilitator Training five times and realized that our training created tremendous personal shifts for people. It was as much personal growth as it was professional growth. 

The training was positively impacting our participants’ relationships with their partners, children, friends, colleagues, and loved ones. But more importantly, it was strengthening their relationships with themselves.

I wanted to create an offering that took the most potent and applicable lessons from training and made them accessible to all. How To Hold Space is a course for anyone in pursuit of more compassion, less judgment, deeper connections, and more clarity.



Why I created this course

I invite you to discover, learn, connect deeply, find your people, and ultimately, find yourself.

“Listen with only one purpose. To give the other person the chance to empty their heart.”

– THICH NHAT HANH

How To Hold Space is not a lecture course. The work we’re doing is designed to create internal shifts of understanding, not simply to impart abstract concepts. Short teachings will be paired with powerful exercises and a lived experience of NUSHU Group.

Our goal is integration, a fundamental shift in understanding that helps you see things differently, forever. The most potent teachings make you aware of something you previously couldn’t see.

In 6 weeks, you’ll open your eyes to a new way of connecting more deeply and powerfully with everyone you care about.
