training & consulting
Providing training and consulting that: (1) helps institutions and organizations integrate wellness into the culture of their communities and (2) teaches educators how to cultivate decolonized, liberated learning spaces
"I once read a statistic that claimed teachers make more decisions in a day than any profession second to air traffic controllers. With that demand, it is no wonder that teacher burnout results in thousands of teachers leaving the profession each year. That is where Heal with Keonna comes in. Keonna is an exceptional facilitator who partners with your teachers in a process of reflection to identify potential triggers before they happen and self-care strategies before they are needed. She also positions teachers to gently hold each other accountable creating a collective of self-care. I highly recommend Heal with Keonna for any and all school communities."
- Ashlee Gutierrez, Founding Principal at Caliber Beta Academy Upper School

Wellness Seminar & Mindfulness Training for Change Makers
Are the change makers and helping professionals in your community more exhausted, overwhelmed and anxious than ever before? Here's an opportunity for staff and employees to learn how to take better care of themselves and each other during these difficult times. Participants leave this training more energized and equipped to prioritize their wellness, set and honor their boundaries and cultivate self-care and community care in their personal and professional lives. This is where change makers and helping professionals learn how to embody the care that they so effortlessly give to others.
Is wellness a core value and practice at your organization, institution or company? Organizations, institutions and companies must shift their culture, curriculum and policies to support and promote the well-being of their community members. They must model and create authentic opportunities for wellness on a consistent basis. I provide wellness consulting that supports communities in making practical, sustainable changes to integrate wellness into the culture of their community.
