hi, I'm nina be

There is nothing, and I mean NOTHING, sick or bad or broken about you.

We call the process of transforming trauma into TRUTH, "taming dragons,"
so that we can live mindfully.

Why We Gather

W gather in Wisdom Circle cohorts to collectively witness & experience opportunities & invitations for our trauma to transform.

By learning together to be with the feelings, experiences & embodiment we have access to be in the present moment,
we find our Wisdom.

Come Gather With Us

We have found through research, that women have most benefited from attending monthly Wisdom Circles consistently throughout the year.

The Wisdom Circle Method

The Wisdom Circle Method developed & facilitated by nina be and has been studied by researchers at Duke University for its power to transform trauma. It draws on a wide range of ancient wisdom and modern knowledge.

  • Each Wisdom Circle begins with paying attention to the simple act of breathing into the body, as an introduction to feeling more alive, as stress is relieved. (MindBody Centering Yoga)

  • We then, rest together and notice feeling each part of the body, with respect and curiosity, in order to to reduce emotional reactivity and increase self-regulation. (Yoga Nidra)

  • As we slowly move, the body is invited to feel more comfort and calm for self regulation and health. (Polyvagal Theory)

  • The core relationship for our lives is with our bodies. When we understand the body better, how it grows and expresses, we understand how we are really doing in the world, moment to moment. This is embodiment. (Body Mind Centering)

  • As we develop a sense of Self, we can move into relationships with others, with knowledge of our tendencies of reactivity, which may be rooted in patterns of behavior from generations of familial, cultural, societal and spiritual practices. (Humanism/Family Systems)

  • The central portion of the session explores our expressive writing to strengthen each person’s voice and positive identity. (Expressive Writing)

  • We find that shifting into a more positive narrative and self talk can relieve the pressure of hopelessness, positive aspects of the human experience that make life worth living. (Positive Psychology)

  • Trauma happens on a spectrum, so waves of intensity ebb and flow. As we learn to tend to moment-to-moment conditions, we feel less abandoned and more supported, hence trusting ourselves. (C- PTSD research from Van de Kolk @ Trauma Institute)

  • Each Wisdom Circle Gathering ends with using a powerful mind-body-heart affirmation for processing where we are, where we may go and our commitment to stay with ourselves through it all. (EFT)
