Oasis delivers simple strategies to people, teams, and organizations looking to adapt in a complex world that is ever-changing and increasingly reliant on technology. As humans, learning how to give our brains time to reboot to handle the demands of work and life is essential. Oasis increases our awareness of this usually unconscious process with renewed energy and a path forward to change.

Why Oasis in the Overwhelm?

It all started when I met Millie Grenough, founder of Oasis in the Overwhelm. After a near-death accident forced her to face the consequences of her frantic, fast-paced lifestyle she developed the four Oasis Strategies to help herself and others move from chaos to an energizing calm and focus. Her focus? Sharing what she learned about rewiring the brain toward greater calm, focus, effectiveness, health and happiness. I was curious and trained with Millie, attracted to the idea of being at choice with how I show up and offer the opportunity for others to pause and manage stress and the precious energy we all expend at work and play in a more strategic way. I 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. Since then Millie and I have worked with people from all walks of life in all parts of the world find greater balance and enjoyment at work and play using the Oasis strategies. 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 October 3, 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!
