Imagine approaching your role as a healthcare professional from a place of overflowing joy and love.

Envision showing up with groundedness and a strong presence, even in high-pressure environments and after long hours.

Picture yourself navigating difficult conversations and conflicts with grace, influence, and empathy.

Join us for a transformative workshop tailored for healthcare professionals, where we’ll focus on self-care and revitalization. In this highly interactive session, professional coach and martial artist Qin Coe will guide you through the art of healing, drawing insights from the martial art of Aikido—which translates to ‘the Art of Peace.’

Together, we’ll explore and embody healthy coping skills such as grounding and centering informed by Aikido and deep caring presence, including attentive listening. Through empowering beliefs and exercises, you’ll nurture your well-being, increase energy levels, and cultivate inner strength, enabling you to show up as a strong, resilient, compassionate healer fulfilling your calling.
