HEAL 2: Online Weekend Program June 2023

June 8 – June 11

HEAL 2 is where we work at removing fear, first in ourselves and then helping others. We’ll trace the roots of fear and share several ways to overcome it, along with skills to resolve conflict, empower others and deepen relationships.

“HEAL2 offers a new way to look at and work with deep fears…Being able to bring these fears into our conscious mind and then work with them through the body is extremely valuable.”

What if I register and then something comes up and I can’t attend the program?

We’ll be glad to roll your registration forward to a future offering of the program at the same price.

What if I miss part of the program?

Part of what makes our programs so strong is the sense of community in the cohort, so we encourage you to attend all sessions live.  If you have to miss 1-2 hours, we’ll help you get caught up. If you have to miss more than that, we’ll suggest rolling your registration forward to the next offering.

Do I have to have taken HEAL1 first?

You’ll want to have taken one of the foundational courses first (i.e., Zen Leader 1, HEAL1,  or Resonate) or have equivalent experience so you’re familiar with basics that we build on in this session.  Ask us if you have any questions about your readiness.

Can I take HEAL3 before HEAL2?

While the sessions have a natural order to them, if it works better for your schedule to take HEAL3 before HEAL2, go ahead and do that, you won’t be lost.

How do I claim CME for a HEAL program?

IZL’s CMEs are accredited through SSM Health, which is connected to the EEDS CME Credit system. Upon completion of a HEAL program, IZL will send you the Activity Code for that specific program, both numerically and as a QR Code, to log in and claim your hours.

What if I can’t afford the program?

If you’re committed to training with us, we’d like to try to make it possible for you.  We have a limited number of partial scholarships available to our programs. If you’d like to apply for one, here is an application.

Can my whole team attend?

Absolutely, in fact, it’s easier to integrate the program’s learnings in your workplace when multiple people or a team train together. Contact us for group discounts or if you would like to bring a tailored version of the program to your organization.
