Maya Angelou once said, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
If there’s one thing I know for sure after more than a decade of teaching people around the world how to heal, it’s this…learning is healing.
When people learn the RIGHT STUFF about their body, mind, nervous system, traumatic imprints, and more, they begin to heal.
I see it happen time and time again.
So today, I’m offering you a quick roundup of some of my most popular teachings.
As you scroll through the options, see if you can tune into your body and follow your impulse toward what you need to learn today.
(If that doesn’t come naturally, that makes so much sense. Most humans were never taught how to truly listen to their bodies! It’s one of the first things I teach my students in all of my online programs. But I digress.)
Enjoy the learning, friend. Take what you need, leave what you don’t.

Why can’t I sleep?
>> This is one of my most popular videos because sleep disturbance is a classic symptom of unhealed trauma and a dysregulated nervous system. Learn why my students’ sleep struggles tend to magically resolve with this work. <<
