    Episode #45: Pandemics, Polarity, and Bang for Your Buck

    In this episode, Michaela and Steve were live-streaming a Q&A session to help support people as we find ourselves in an unprecedented moment in time - where the only thing certain is constant change - it is a time that tests our internal resources.

    Reducing stress, finding opportunities to return to the body as well as deepening our capacity to not only survive but thrive, is now more important than ever.

    Regardless if you can rely on established practices, or want to create a new simple routine, we’d like to support you with some of our road-tested strategies and practices.

    Michaela and Steve are offering a series of FREE conversations - 'The S&M Conversations'. This series will include guided rituals, practice instructions, live-streams to practice along, as well as live Zoom Q&As.


    They’ll be covering resilience, embodiment, stress and trauma relief, meditation, sensory engagement, relationship, creativity and ritual as a means to resource yourself.
