Consulting/Training/Support for Healing
Building on the foundation created by pioneers Dan Siegel, Allan Schore, Lou Cozolino, Marco Iacoboni, Steve Porges, Iain McGilchrist, and others, we at Nurturing the Heart are steeped in relational neuroscience, sharing it to support clinicians and healthcare professionals, parents, teachers, and anyone interested in living life in collaboration with the brain's natural healing and meaning-making processes.
Through consultations, trainings near and far, and retreats, many of our programs offer immersion experiences so that we can be together long enough to foster and support personal healing experiences. Through this work, we believe that this profoundly relational perspective can become part of who we are and how we live our lives, as well as work in our professions. We trust that in this way, we can each become a daily, embodied resource for bringing into being a more awake, resilient, and compassionate world. There is also much joy to be found in the relationshps that arise in these gatherings!

A Word from Bonnie
I am a marriage and family therapist with no hands-on training and I have found Mike's ability to make Stillness tangible and to help us deepen into and embody that experience to be the most valuable training I have had both in my professional life and as a human being. We would be honored to have you join us.

(about one hour from Portland International Airport)
“There is no difference between this work and meditation. It is an embodied joint practice. The outcome is the opportunity of a different and better adapted way of being, less subject to the patternings of yesterday, or at least, a better way of being with the suffering.”
Mike has been doing this work for over 40 years, and in the past, has mostly concentrated on working with therapists of one kind or another. More recently, it has become apparent that this is not a work to be reserved for some exclusive club of people, but may be offered to anyone who is, perhaps, seeking to deepen into the meaning in life.
