Lightfulness @ Work
Team Building, Team Training
Lightfulness Training emphasizes individual well-being and team cohesiveness to create a workplace where collaboration will flourish, favoring creative solutions over arguments. At the heart of the strategy is giving co-workers tools and resources so that lightness, empathy and humor are present in the day-to-day. With certain teams, such as with social workers, caregivers….the focus shifts to include interactions beyond the team, with clients, students…here’s a recent post on that…
Self Care & Resiliency
Lightfulness Training introduces practices offering exercises in stress recognition and release, and expressive methods to inject lightness into tense situations. These trainings weave a cohesive fabric of self-care and resiliency for individuals and groups working in health care, social work, education and related fields.
All trainings are designed according to meet team needs, and time constraints. They can be a series of short sessions, a longer one-off training, or as an ongoing practice

“I found the exercises you shared really applicable to our work. We sometimes have an idea that we are ‘present’ but in reality just think that we are. I think any practice that aids us in getting into the right hand brain is vital and frankly delicious! So thanks again! ”

“I loved the definition of ‘levity’ as a lightness. Humor is always a possibility, but not an imperative. So freeing.”
