  • Improve the ability of clients to self-calm when anxious.

Connect Them to Their World

  • Train clients to simultaneously maintain internal body awareness and groundedness while fully perceiving and being present in their environment;
  • Encourage clients to be aware of and enjoy the safety and wholeness of the present moment;

Unlock Hidden Information
