Who We Work With

Personal Development

Individuals who feel lost and discouraged or who seek to improve their relationships often find self-improvement methods are too complex to use during challenging moments. The simplicity of the Connection Practice makes it possible to achieve emotional balance during stressful times. With this skill, we can access our highest brain function, open our intuition and create the life we desire.


We’ve all heard about bullying, shootings, suicide, and addiction in our schools. Professionals reduce this loss of human potential by offering the Connection Practice, which increases students’ social-emotional intelligence. Documentation of 50,000 children who have learned it is an underestimate as teachers continue to offer it to new students.


In business, relationship conflicts carry enormous costs, including lack of teamwork, inefficiency and lost profit. The Connection Practice offers a skill that reduces conflict and provides a clear roadmap through disagreements to harmonious solutions. It inspires innovative thinking and creativity. Courses are customized to the needs of individual businesses and nonprofits.

Faith-Based Groups

Faith-based communities struggle with painful conflicts that can lead to fractured relationships and loss in membership. The Connection Practice teaches members how to establish a deep sense of emotional safety in their spiritual community. The practice espouses no religious beliefs; it enriches the social-emotional environment while building peace and harmony.
