We all can benefit from:  Improved Awareness, Stress Resilience & Programs Grounded in Science

Published research demonstrates that learning mind body medicine skills causes a statistically significant decrease in depression, hopelessness, anxiety, anger and sleep disturbances, and an increase in mindfulness, self-efficacy and quality of life. --Center for Mind Body Medicine

Individuals with high levels of well-being are more productive at work and are more likely to contribute to their communities.--Centers for Disease Control
Nearly three in five employees (59%) have experienced negative impacts of work-related stress...including a lack of interest, motivation or energy (26%), difficulty focusing (21%), and a lack of effort at work (19%).--American Psychological Association

Wellbeing needs to shift from an individual issue to a collective priority in the workplace.

Learning mind body skills creates a different way to be present in the room & in your life.

What People Say

Diane, Non-Profit

I knew it was time to address my high levels of stress and the 8-week Mind Body Medicine group was the answer!  Every week I learned about my brain and body and was given helpful tools for managing stress.  My small group helped me stay accountable and provided a dedicated space to put many of these tools into practice.  I'm so grateful for the time we spent together.

Peggy, Purple Ink Team Member

Mind and Body was a wonderful way for our team to slow down and come together to prioritize our mental and physical health and well-being. We learned some great tools and methods that I will continue to use with my team and myself personally.

Kelli, Academic Advising Administrator, Indiana University

My experience with the Mind Body Medicine skills group was incredibly enriching. The combination of weekly check-ins with a small cohort and home practice was inspiring and supportive. Many of the practices stretched my understanding of the mind, body, spirit connection. After completing this series, I feel more empowered to allow space throughout my day to pause for moments of reflection and self-care.

Kayla, Teacher

I am very blessed to have joined the 8-Week Ignite Wellbeing Program for grieving mothers whose child has passed, born or unborn. This group allowed me to feel validated in my stress and grief during a time that was filled with much anxiety, confusion and sadness. I will always remember how this group experience left me feeling heard and supported. Christy and Melanie are a great team and delivered a program that was thoughtful and effective. I have tools to help reduce my stress and have made life-long friends who genuinely care.

Karina, Non-Profit

This course provided a safe framework for personal exploration and provided tools in a collaborative and informative way. The leader facilitated an honest and open envirnment for participants to explore and share their experience.

Surekha, CFO, Indiana Youth Services Association

This was an extremely valuable program. The facilitator was awesome. I learned more tools to regulate myself; I made invaluable connections to other leaders. I would recommend this program to any leader who wants to become a better, stronger leader. Thank you, Ignite Wellbeing, for this amazing opportunity to learn and grow!
