"Welcome the Inevitable and Live a Better Life" is an 8-week course for professionals and anyone interested in learning from death with instructor Charlotte Nuessle, BSc.

Millions of years of evolution taught our brains and bodies to fight, flight, and shut down when we perceive danger. Even if it’s not there. Whether we’re aware of it or not. 

These responses are about survival, ultimately to protect us from death. But death is inevitable.

We can change how we respond by listening to and understanding our body's built in signals meant to protect us from danger. This course is about living fully, integrating the inevitable in supportive community.

 After taking this course, you’ll:

  • Recognize how your body perceives danger - and learn how to create new choices
  • Respect the strong pull of survival responses - and have more compassion for yourself and others
  • Embody connection in everyday life - and strengthen relationships with clients and loved ones in loss and grief
  • Understand your own story about death - and live a more balanced life

Part of the wave that landed yoga, meditation, personal development and holistic health in our mainstream culture. My cutting edge work blends three wisdom approaches: strengthen inner resources of resilience; evidence-based understandings re: our nervous system; therapeutic yoga applications. My passion is to facilitate transformation individually and in small group circles where authentic body/mind integration happens live and virtually live. Let’s roll up our sleeves!
