Transforming Stress through the BE K.I.N.D. Embodiment Methodology (TM)

At the heart of everything we do is a foundation of working with the human experience of being human.

Our vision of “Compassionately Embracing Our True Selves as We Navigate All of Life’s Experiences” has an underlying goal to be a place where human beings find peace. This may sound much bigger than us—that is the point. We know that we can not make this difference alone, and we know that it is worth fighting for. This work begins with acknowledging where we are starting from. As human beings, we are designed to respond to the experiences we take in. Whether internal or external, whether positive or negative, these experiences move through us. This cycle plays out hundreds of times a day. 

Yoga teaches us that we are to work with our experience and not against it, that to achieve liberation from our suffering that “the way out is through”. In our society, there is a lot of “be this” language. Be positive, be grateful, be better. The problem is that it doesn’t stick until we address the source of our suffering.

Our programs are designed to move past the awareness and into actions that build your skills over time. As Dan Siegel of the Mindsight Institute says, “Change the architecture of your own brain”.

Our Be K.I.N.D. Embodiment Methodology model was designed to work with both your human experience, and your physiology and psychology, and it is the foundation of all of our programs.

"Embodiment is being with and working with all the sensations, emotions, and experiences life offers."
