If you are looking for a scientifically-based solution to reduce stress and enjoy harmonious relationships through respectful and authentic communication, the Connection Practice may be just what you need.
The Connection Practice teaches a skill that unites your empathy and insight for accelerated growth. Empathy is attained through a conscious connection to feelings and needs, and insight is accessed through heart-brain coherence. The synergy in this partnership maximizes your social emotional intelligence, builds resilience and enhances performance.
This skill has proven its value in businesses, schools, universities, non-profits, families, and faith-based communities.
“If everyone practiced this it would transform our world into a sane one!” — Henry B.
“The Connection Practice is a parent survival kit.” — Mother of two young children
“Before, I sought relief in alcohol. Now real relief for me is found in this practice” — W. Brown
Once they get a taste of the power of this practice, many people yearn to learn more about the Connection Practice, how it may become a lifelong skill to enhance healthy relationships and gain a deep sense of inner trust and confidence.
By becoming a certified coach or trainer of the Connection Practice........
- You will help others gain the benefits of empathy and insight. You will help them reduce stress, have better relationships and find better solutions to problems.
- You may also help organizations - whether they work with at-risk children, large corporations or government agencies - become more efficient, more connected, and better places to work.
- You may choose to give school children skills that will not only reduce bullying and help them do better in school, but will also support them throughout their entire lives.
All of this will lead to a more connected world, one in which people can deal with conflicts without resorting to violence or shame.
And still, you may find that the best part of becoming a certified trainer is what you gain for yourself. If you are looking for more peace within yourself and in your relationships, or if you want to be of service and truly make a difference, consider becoming a certified Connection Practice coach or trainer.
Steps to Become a Certified Coach or Trainer
Step 1 Prior to any certification coursework, you must first have an interview with a Master Rasur to ensure that certification is a good choice for all of us. Then you would begin by taking one or more of the Foundations Courses (Parts 1, 2, and 3) via Webinar, along with coaching to receive the experiential part of the practice (11 ½ hours each) or in person (one 32-hour course or as three 12-hour weekend courses).
Each Foundations Course teaches, and gives you a chance to practice, the skills that make up the Connection Practice. You will also learn ways you can continue to practice your new skills.
To sign up for a Foundations Course, go to the Find a Course page.
Step 2 Facilitate for a Foundations Course or during a Fast Track Foundations Course: As a facilitator, you will work directly with a small group as you coach and they learn and practice the Connection Practice.
Step 3 Take a Certification Course: The final training step is to take a Certification Course, an 8-hour course often offered on weekends. There is an additional course you can take that will certify you as a Curriculum Instructor. This will allow you to teach the Connection Practice to teachers or other adults who then use it in their classrooms or with children or youth.
Step 4 After you have completed the coursework, there are some additional post-course requirements to provide additional practice with the skills and ensure that you have thoroughly and correctly mastered the elements of the Connection Practice.
