building Resilience

from the outside in.

Trauma-informed professional development to transform organizational capacity. 


Many educational institutions and organizations place small value on mental and emotional health.

And yet, approximately 70% of adults will experience trauma at some point in their lives (5). And 76% of adults are currently experiencing health problems due to chronic stress (6).

What does this mean?

High levels of stress and unresolved trauma affect one’s ability to learn, connect with others, and verbally communicate, among a host of other undesirable effects (7).

This is a problem for organizations and the people they serve. As students and clients struggle with the demands of the modern world, our institutions struggle with issues like communication, toxic work culture, leadership problems, and conflict resolution.

How can we create more resilient, connected, and inclusive professional communities? 

Stress management is often overlooked in schools and organizations – but it’s time to make a change.

At BEE ME, we know that strong communities are built by resilient, connected, and mindful individuals. 


Resilience at a nervous system level is critical to optimizing both individual and collective performance.

Research shows that co-regulation - the act of providing interactive regulatory support between people – is crucial to establishing safe and loving environments for people to thrive (9). Creating environments that FEEL safe for everyone opens the door to more effective communication, creativity, learning, and problem-solving.

While much of the emphasis in professional development is on the external world, BEE ME Workshops focus on the development of the internal self. Individual wellness - at a nervous system level - is a prerequisite for healthier organizations.

We help organizations develop resilience, coherence, and connection, using body-based (somatic) and mindfulness training designed to improve organizational wellness. Our workshops draw on current and existing research in neuroscience, heart coherence, mindfulness, trauma, and education to provide custom-built workshops and consultations tailored to address individual and organizational needs. 

We offer the missing knowledge for staff to offer empathy, compassion, and understanding from a scientific perspective as well as an experienced, felt sense. With this knowledge, educators can spend more time teaching - not managing, and organizations can spend more time building - not putting out fires.

 Individual wellness - at a nervous system level - is a prerequisite for healthier organizations. 

In short, individual well-being at a nervous system level influences collective performance.

Research on the neurobiology of mindfulness suggests regular practice can result in the following benefits: 


  • Enhanced attention, greater ability to emotionally regulate, and greater flexibility in thinking
  • Higher teacher perceptions of student self-control, attention spans, participation, and caring
  • Greater job satisfaction and lower rates of burnout than in schools without mindfulness practices
  • Improved classroom culture and empowered teachers to respond to classroom pressures (10)

  • Greater job satisfaction
  • Improved communication, problem-solving, and productivity 
  • Improved self-regulation, focus and concentration
  • Improved Heart Rate Variability and resilience
  • Increased well-being, positive emotion, and ability to form friendships
  • Greater compassion and the ability to be nonreactive (11)

A mindful team is a more peaceful, happy, and effective one.

"I found the training to be generally enlightening and completely relaxing, I felt transported to zen for a day. I was extremely grateful for the knowledge shared in the area of coping with difficult times and how so many things in our bodies, mind, and spirit are interconnected and affect each other. I will be standing, stretching, and placing my hands behind my head in the area of the vagus nerve as needed!"

"[Our students] start in an accelerated program and go on to a fast-paced work life. Both environments are continuous with high mental and emotional stress. Inviting [the facilitator] on campus allows us to provide students tools they can carry with them for the rest of their life, to manage the stressors they face daily. It is a course we try to host each semester to reach as many students as possible to give [them] lifelong skills."
