In support of our well-being so we can be and lead well in these extraordinary times of crisis and change…
Why Center & Connect?

Something very special happens when we engage in somatic centering practices together. There's a quieting reset; we can hear and feel what is otherwise drowned out by the noise we live in. There's a compassionate listening; as we share what we're noticing and redirect our sensing to what's essential, a kind curiosity or affirming clarity emerges. There's a refueling or re-energizing; every time we engage, there's a renewed sense "I AM" and "I CHOOSE" and "I CAN" to direct and encourage each person's next steps on their journey. Experience how this practice and the community of amazing humans (all of whom you will love to know!) fortifies your resourcefulness and humanity!

Center & Connect began in March 2020 as a gift in direct response to the isolation, disruption, and chaos of the Covid-19 global pandemic. As it evolves, Center & Connect continues in support of all of us making new choices as we envision and co-create a "new normal" that brings us more to life.

Especially now as we step forward in the daily challenges of a world upended by a pile-up of life-changing circumstances, we need connection. Not busy, distracted, demanding connection. Connection that allows what IS, loosens the grip for letting go, and embraces what is emerging for us now.

Center & Connect simply invites you for an essential practice to cultivate centered presence and congruent, enlivening resilience. It's the core practice for leading from center. It's fundamental for true "executive presence." Best of all, this practice strengthens you for creating what matters in your life with greater joy, inner peace, and aliveness.

What You Can Count On…

You can count on a potent hour and consistent structure for our group practice. Within this structure, I introduce a theme, new content, and variations on the centering practice each time. Everyone is encouraged to share from their experience of the practice as well as insights and questions that arise in our interaction with the content and with each other. Engage as for an improvisational group coaching session.

Recordings. The recordings I post to the Membership Site include only the Somatic Centering Practice so monthly subscribers can revisit the practice in your own time. Posted recordings do not include interactive content and conversations. This is to protect and cultivate the rich and trustworthy nature of the "live" conversations.

A further note about Centered Presence and Leadership…

Weebles are We…

Meet my friendly Weebles. Maybe you remember these toys. …They “wobble but they don’t fall down.”

Leaders “wobble.” The best ones fall down… and get up faster. It’s part of learning and being a human "work in progress."

  • Your leadership challenge is to come back to center more consistently and in ever tougher situations.

  • Your collaborative challenge is to move with others from center - yours and theirs…to blend and coordinate more consistently and with less waste in ever more challenging and creative situations.

Have you ever held clay on a spinning potter’s wheel? What an effort it is and what a mess it makes when the clay is not centered!

To get good at this - and help others be better at this - you have to CHOOSE and PRACTICE.

Making new neural connections and reprogramming our neuro-muscular patterning requires deliberate intention and mindful repetition. You slow down and tune in to go faster, more effectively. You let yourself integrate and deepen - two things that never happen in the fast lane.

A word to the wise: it could be tempting to dismiss these practices as too easy, self-evident, irrelevant, or trivial. Notice if that might be a response or conditioned tendency for you. The way to “hear” insight and wisdom is by tuning in for it, while turning down the volume on the “noise” that otherwise drowns it out.

Dedicating mindful attention to even the simplest practices for centered presence allows you to re-tool on the run. To be more effective and resourceful with yourself, you need to discover and regularly use tools for internal resonance and self-renewal.

You practice yourself into a “new normal.”

As an Executive Coach, I bring over 20 years experience and a passion for partnering with business owners, entrepreneurs, and knowledge professionals to lead their way forward with greater trust, creative presence, and wisdom. My clients have transformed themselves and their situations in the face of disruptive change, persistent obstacles, and inspiring opportunity.

One very satisfied customer! I look forward to my mid-week connection with our small, committed group. Beata skillfully and gently guides our recalibration through the breath and a somatic meditation. I am consistently appreciative of the centered groundedness that I leave with, better able to move in my world with presence, awareness and calm.
