Meet Rita Marie Johnson

Rita Marie Johnson is an educator, speaker, award-winning author, and creator of the Connection Practice.

Many conflicts arise from unresolved emotional pain caused by Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Rita Marie Johnson healed herself of childhood trauma using the Connection Practice. She is determined to prevent ACEs by creating emotionally safe communities around the world.

Her practice has been shared with 150+ certified trainers and reached over 100,000 people. Rita Marie’s vision is for the Connection Practice to be integrated into homes and schools so that social-emotional connection is valued as much as reading, writing, and math.

What people say about the Connection Practice

The Connection Practice has given me the tools to deal with problems I face on a day-to-day basis.
"It empowered me to not absorb problems, but rather address them in the moment and let them go. I’m so thankful the Connection Practice is a part of my life.”

Gina Barnert

The most amazing part of the Connection Practice is that it's so simple.
"It's efficient, scientifically-based, and easy-to-use anywhere. It’s like a tool in your tool belt that you can use at any time.”

Belinda Sloan

If you really want to connect authentically in any moment, use the Connection Practice.
"As a parent, I used to put my needs on the back burner and let the emotions of my child wash over me. Now, even when I’m having a bad day, I know how to stay calm and collected as my child continues to grow their emotional bearings.”

Yes, but you need to submit your request at least 5 days prior to a program’s start date. We offer the Harmony at Home 30-Day Quickstart every month. Additionally, once you have started a program, you cannot switch to another cohort.

No, we will never kick you out of the Facebook group for your program. You may continue to reach out to other parents in your cohort. However, after your program ends, we will no longer have a moderator helping the group. Good news is you may signup for our premium membership at any time, which includes 1/month learning and support calls with a private Facebook group that is always moderated.
