Healing The Divide in Times of Uncertainty

Situations like the one we are now living through are why the acronym VUCA was created.  No doubt, we are living in Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous times.  And when the VUCA hits the fan, we at Learning in Action want to be in it with you, supporting you through it.

Heal The Divide Mission

Learning in Action is committed to healing the divide within and between people. Healing the divide within and between is the work that connects the world.  Healing our dividedness from our essence will heal the dividedness between us. We dream of a world in which when one of us hurts, we all feel it.  And we run to the aid of the other just as we would to our own.  We envision a world in which there is a realization that we are separate and connected and ONE. 

How We’re Supporting You During These Times

We’ve created several of-the-moment classes to support our community. These classes are free or donation-based and come packed with bonus materials, worksheets and meditations.

From We to Me: Expanding Relational Awareness

Of the billions of people on the planet, you are the only person who has direct access to your inner self. From We to Me is a 6-week live class experience where we’ll explore how we are shaped by our relationships, the essential nature of relationships, how interpersonal conflict arises, the ways in which we defend and protect our self, and how we can learn to develop better relationships (with anyone) by understanding ourselves with greater clarity.


Moving Through Fear

An interactive, on-demand course designed to engage your innate capacity to understand, accept, move through and use your experience of fear to your benefit. Learn the steps you can take to name, tame, sit with and move through fear into a place of acceptance and possibility.

Heal The Divide Podinar Series

Our Heal The Divide podinar series is a free, monthly, live interactive virtual learning. Our intention for our podinar series is to facilitate and accelerate transformative change in the world. We do that by introducing a community of change agents to thought leaders, providing opportunities for professional development, and creating experiences that inspire, inform and build community.

100% Virtual EQ Certification Training

Are You Interested in Going Deeper Faster with Clients and Helping Them Break Through in Weeks Instead Of Months? Discover how to uncover your client's hidden patterns, deepen your client relationships, and help your clients achieve their goals faster. The EQ Profile is the only simulation-based emotional intelligence assessment. Unlike most emotional intelligence assessment tools, this profile is about relationships. The EQ Profile maps what neural pathways get activated in difficult relationships and offers a guide for the ongoing development of the self for high-performance, successful relationships, as well as an overall sense of well-being and vitality in living. People are encouraged to reflect on their relational and emotional strengths and weaknesses in their current relationships.

100% Virtual EQ Team Certification Training

The EQ Profile Team Certification is a complete end-to-end course on how to use the EQ Profile with teams to reveal both obstacles and gifts in their collective internal experience which, when understood and leveraged, can lead to breakthrough results. This 7-week intensive live virtual course takes you on a guided journey through how to win business to work with teams, how to frame the work you do within the context of your client, how to interpret the EQ Profile at a team level, sample presentations you can use with your clients, case studies of using the EQ Profile with teams and its impact, and exploring ways you can use the results to connect deeper with your clients and ultimately expand your professional reach.

Using The RAIN Method to Support Mindful Relationships

Our relationships are perhaps the single most important aspect of our lives. Yet many of us still find it challenging to heal severed or damaged relationships and maintain strong connections. Being mindful in relationships is the work of bringing presence and acceptance and conscious awareness to the most difficult aspects of our relationships to begin to heal the relational divides with ourselves and others.  

One means to support ourselves in having mindful relationships is the RAIN method — a mindfulness process to use when triggered or when experiencing intense or difficult emotions.   We can use the practice of RAIN to awaken us from our reactivity and our non-conscious, habituated patterns to be more mindful, particularly in relationships.

What Is the RAIN Method?

The RAIN method was introduced 20 years ago by Vipassana teacher Michele McDonald and has built upon by Buddhist meditation teacher, Tara Brach. In the context of our connection with others, RAIN is a very specific way of giving ourselves what we need to feel accepted, appreciated and loved so that we can give them to others.


Taming Your Gremlin | A Heal The Divide Podinar

What is a gremlin, and how do you find yours and tame it? In this episode, Alison engages with guest Rick Carson, an esteemed author, personal and executive coach, psychotherapist and consultant, to learn how his method can help us as individuals and as coaches.

Carson has conducted workshops with organizations in the U.S., Europe, and the Middle East. He is the author of four HarperCollins books. His seminal work, Taming Your Gremlin, has been translated into 12 languages and has been a top seller for HarperCollins Publishers for 35 years. He’s a past faculty member at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and founder of the Gremlin Taming Institute of Dallas, Texas.

Introduction to Gremlins

We all have a gremlin, that vicious, bullying voice inside our minds that’s intent on making us miserable. It has a fear-inducing power over us that keeps us from being at peace and living to our potential. If it isn’t acknowledged and tamed, it will keep its control, holding us back from making the changes necessary to achieve our goals.
