Soul Tending

Starts Monday, October 3 | This 4-month immersion into emotions, self-healing, and self-care will help you uncover the soulful genius in your emotions and develop new awareness and skills.


Cultivating Emotional Wisdom & Practice

We welcome you to a four-month program based on The Language of Emotions by Karla McLaren, and taught by licensed Dynamic Emotional Integration® professionals Sherry Olander and Jennifer Nate. In this course, you’ll join an empathic online community to explore new information about emotions and develop deeper skills and resources to heal your soul and support your whole life.

You’ll learn about all 17 of your emotions: how to identify them, how to work with them, and how to utilize supportive skills and practices to access their limitless soul-healing and soul-making power.

This course relies upon your experience with the material in The Language of Emotions by Karla McLaren, and it moves forward from there into new information on the emotions, new Empathic Mindfulness practices, and new ways to develop your emotional skills and awareness in a supportive community.

This 4-month program contains 3 learning modules (of 4 weeks and 5 weeks) with breaks in between so that you can rest and integrate your learning.

This course is for dedicated learners, and is limited to 20 participants so that we can create a warm, soulful, and empathic learning community.
