Our first official event at Ripple on Silver Lake was a huge success! RIM Essentials Training for Educators was amazing and the possibilities for using this work in schools and with youth are exciting.
RIM is a powerful set of tools used to help process emotions at the subconscious level, quickly and effectively so that clients can overcome blocks to success and happiness. This is the kind of work that will change lives.
A total of 16 of us gathered in the barn for 4 days of intensive training the RIM process and tools. RIM stands for Regenerating Images in Memory and is a powerful set of skills that help kids and adults clear subconscious stuck emotions that block success and living our best lives.
There were 13 participants, 6 of whom are on my Pathways to Success for Youth team. There were 3 school districts represented including teachers, school counselors, school psychologists, social workers, special educators and support staff. We were supported by 2 RIM Master student assistants.
The workshop was facilitated by Dr. Deb Sandella, founder of the RIM Institute and best selling author of Goodbye Hurt and Pain. Dr. Deb is a master of this process and is confident that RIM will play a powerful role in decreasing violence and expanding trauma sensitivity both among educators and youth service providers as well as in school settings.
I am looking forward to continuing the momentum that was started with this group and seeing the use of RIM expand in schools and youth service work to help prevent school violence and enhance youth success.
