Holistic Approaches to Living with Anxiety

Online Summer 2020

An online course I am developing for both individuals living with anxiety and helping professionals.

This course is designed to explore anxiety through a somatic-relational-social-ecological lense. The intention is to offer resources to live with anxiety from a holistic model. 

I offer skills and perspectives that get less attention in the mainstream mental health system, such as:

  • understanding the body & movement practices

  • food/herbal medicine

  • love & relational safety

  • Ayurvedic teachings and tools 

The course will be a mix of short video lectures, practice videos and downloadable reosurces. 

It will be hosted through Udemy.
