Feeling frazzled? Trapped in a spiral of short term To-Dos and longer term thinking? Checking your phone in the middle of the night? Join Maia for the Together Leader Extended Edition Online Course. Eight classes featuring different aspects of Togetherness, small group breakouts, homework assignments, and corresponding book chapters to Together yourself in these tricky times.

Classes are offered remotely through Zoom, Nearpod, and a robust class website. Our classes are highly engaging using thought-provoking questions, reflective small group work, various self-assessments, differentiated work time, videos, and more! Perhaps even some seated yoga and culture-building prompts!
