AIM your SITES™® Creating Context for Approaching Your Life
How to create environments that illuminate our best:Practical use of current research bridging science and contemplative practices.
Diane Renz, a licensed psychotherapist, founded Your Gateway to Healing™, a confluence of her life’s exploration both academically and personally in what it means to Heal. Her own personal journey through trauma, cancer, and loss, became her Gateway to understanding inherent wellness, and she now finds herself led, (beyond her introverted proclivities), to write, speak, teach, and develop workshops, to offer, in collaboration, how we can learn to Turn our Pain Into Possibility™. She currently is immersed in the development of treatment interventions and curriculum that incorporates secular ethics for contemplative practices, which makes more widely available our power to cultivate well-being. She currently studies with Dr. Dan Siegel integrating the latest scientific understandings relative to Mindfulness within her work. To learn more please visit her at www.yourgatewaytohealing.com.
