You took Intro to the Resilience Toolkit and told us you wanted more. We listened!

We heard you when you said, “I have more questions,” and “I wish this course was longer.”  So by popular demand, we’ve created The Resilience Toolkit 2. Toolkit 2 builds on everything you learned about stress and trauma in the first series while offering even more insight, tools, and support.
The Resilience Toolkit 2 is for anyone who is seeking a more nuanced and embodied understanding of stress, trauma, and how social conditions affect our personal and collective well-being.
This 3-part workshop builds on the success of Intro to The Resilience Toolkit, diving deep into how you can apply the Toolkit to support your wellness and growth.

alchemical resilience

The flexible strength to heal, overcome adversity, and change systems of inequity and oppression into places where we thrive.

The Resilience Toolkit 2 illuminates a clear path to alchemical resilience, giving you the knowledge, tools, and support you need to navigate challenges, from the personal to the political.

There is no doubt in my mind that these tools, the practice, the healing in community can help to bend the arc toward justice and liberation.

I felt so much calmer in the last week. Things that would have made me anxious in the past did not. I can’t say for sure if the workshop caused this, but I feel fairly certain that a regular tremor practice has contributed greatly to my well-being. Now that I have The Toolkit to work with also, I feel even more equipped to deal with daily stresses


I absolutely loved The Resilience Toolkit 2, and hope it will continue to be offered! It really increased my understanding of alchemical resilience and my commitment to building capacity in myself to work towards alchemical resilience.I could really always live by Nkem's tagline "We get free together!"

Participating in the class helped me see/remember how impactful these tools are and helped to reinvigorate my own practices and commitment to sharing the Toolkit. It was the perfect boost at the perfect time. I really loved hearing from other learners about their experiences applying the toolkit.

I have been studying the nervous system for several years and done other classes and read books but the Resilience Toolkit is by far my favorite and most effective. Toolkit 2 gave me some new tools to overcome blockages that were preventing me from using the tremor more frequently and that has been a game changer for me. The work on appeasement is also incredibly helpful and I think everyone needs it.

I found this workshop tremendously helpful and effective as it was. I found the breakout groups and questions very helpful. I found the facilitation stunning, the ways questions were honoured and recorded, and returned to in an organized manner, based on where they fit within the materials and course as a whole.


I am grateful for the experience and the tools provided in this course to traverse the more emotionally uncomfortable times of transformation, self reflection and expansion. As a DEIA focused professional it also gave me deeper language to tie into discussions of why a trauma informed lens is so important when doing the work and discussing organizational/systemic change.


Toolkit 2 felt essential to my continued growth and learning, and to understanding my social nervous system within the larger systemic and ideological context. I appreciate the ways we talked about power.
