Restorative Learning Opportunities

For Individuals and Institutions


Every health worker begins with a desire to alleviate suffering and to help patients recover from illness and injury. The capacity for compassion is innate.

Within the dynamics of professional relationships, both individuals and institutions undergo cycles of change, which can be powerfully self-reinforcing. At this time of crisis in healthcare, many people and organizations are spiraling down into stress and disillusionment. But an equally powerful upwards spiral of compassion, caring, positivity and resilience is within easy reach. Which way of being will you choose?

We invite you to begin a self directed journey of development or learn with us in a supported environment.

{ It is our purpose to do tiny things with great love and support others to do the same }

Self Directed Learning

We have seen health professionals transform themselves by adopting just a single new daily practice, such as small acts of kindness. The intrinsic satisfaction of these acts, the renewed connection to patients, and the positive reinforcement quickly lift people into an irreversible cycle of positive change.

Supported Learning

We offer facilitation and consulting services to help institutions and individuals put compassionate care at the heart of provider-patient relationships.
