In a TNT – Time-Numbers-Technology – Driven and Distracted World taking time for “R & R” – Reflect & Recharge – is vital. There's no better way to do this than by:
1) partnering with the uncommon experience and skillful, compassionate, and creative guidance of Mark Gorkin, MSW, LICSW, the Stress Doc; acclaimed, speaker, author, coach, critical incident consultant; leads military resilience retreats to former stress-violence prevention consultant for US Postal Service
2) joining forces with kindred spirits and the Doc as gifted facilitator, to generate new and powerful healing and harmonizing perspective, especially the possibility and power of hope.
Objectives: Five Critical "R & R" – Resilience and Rejuvenation – Skillsets
1. Develop Stress Resilience – prevent burnout; discover “Psychological Hardiness” & SPEED
2. Practice Good Grief – embrace “Grief Ghosts”; distinguish loss, grief, & crisis from depression
3. Disarming & Defusing Communication Skills – disarm power struggles with “good questions”
4. Risk-Taking & Passion Power – learn to blend Purposeful-Provocative-Passionate-Playful
5. Healing Humor & Team Building – storytelling, group art therapy, and “higher power” humor
And most important, we will learn from one another, understanding each of our vulnerabilities and drawing on each participant’s personal-cultural strengths. As was noted by the coordinator of the first Busy Women's Retreat:
Stress, Conflict and Change into Passion Power" was itself a very powerful
theme, and you were able to so skillfully present and guide the group! This
subject brought a lot of heavy emotions from the women to the surface. Your
ability to help the women work through their issues, and even more importantly,
your ability to give them tools with which to transform their stress was truly
amazing. The participants in the retreat told me personally that they were very
impressed with the way that you managed the group and that they took away many
things that they can use in their everyday life. Your presentation helped them
to evaluate their stressors differently, to see the positive in every stress,
conflict and/or change. Moreover, you helped them to realize they are not alone,
and you were so skilled at allowing and encouraging others to give feedback
within the group!

I am so glad you are offering your services to many. You are an insightful man who helped me to have clarity and find my strength in chaos. I honestly believe that "God" put you in my path. I am still unsure of my future but I do know that I made the right choice. Without your understanding, patience and knowledge, I would not have been able to make that move. I may have slip-ups but I hear your voice and your words in my head and you continue to guide me.
