Why Oasis in the Overwhelm?

It all started when I met Millie Grenough, founder of Oasis in the Overwhelm. Her story about how her near-death experience, her successful career and chaotic life in service to others led to her subsequent drive to create Oasis in the Overwhelm - 60 second strategies for shifting from Chaos to Calm. Her focus? Sharing what she learned about rewiring the brain toward greater calm, focus, effectiveness, health and happiness. I was hooked. I trained with Millie and became an Authorized Oasis Trainer and followed the amazing trajectory of my own shift from chaos to calm and the impact the O strategies have on clients at Individual Differences. In 2017 Millie invited me to become a more vital part of the story. She hired me as an organizational coach and consultant and along with colleague Wendy Perrrotti to re-brand and enhance the delivery of training opportunities making Oasis 60 second Strategies more accessible to the public, other coaches, trainers, caregivers and leaders. As I write this thousands of people have experienced Oasis and seen the impact these simple 60 second Oasis strategies have on their own lives, those of their clients, teams and organizations. Today, I partner with Millie to bring you this retreat. A day of reflection and renewal anchored in the Oasis practice. This is your opportunity to experience Oasis in the Overwhelm in a very personal way. You come away refreshed and renewed with 60-second strategies to help you manage stress and increase your focus, effectiveness, happiness, and agility at work and life. Join us on February 28, 2019 to retreat, refresh and renew!

Thanks again for such an inspiring session. I really feel that I can take my stone with me and focus on relaxation at any time. I need to do this more frequently through the day to “retrain” my neurons to fire over the good stuff, not the worries.

We laughed, we cried, we boogied. . . we felt safe to open up to our co-workers, so we felt more like human beings and could see our co-workers as fuller human beings, too…you brought us gradually out of our shells in a relaxed, unforced, entirely voluntary way, so that we could get to know each other —- and ourselves —- in some new ways. And I’m talking about hard-headed accountants here!

I wondered how you would manage to engage each attendee on an individual basis, and you certainly did so! Can you teach ‘old dogs new tricks?’ The seniors of Guilford and Madison who attended Don’t Retire – Rewire! enthusiastically answer, YES!
