Haiti, Concord NH & Washington, DC 

The success of TIMBo continues with our second TIMBo certification training in Haiti (module #2) and our TIMBo foundations training in Concord NH!

We are so thrilled to be seeing the immediate results of our empowering and healing mind body program and we are even more excited to be initiating research on the effects of this powerful curriculum. This past April, our research team accompanied us to Port-au-Prince where they met and collaborated with the research team of our partner organization AMURT-Haiti. Together the teams will be developing measurement tools that are specific to the TIMBo program as well as culturally relevant and sensitive to Haiti.

We are so excited for our research team to be returning with us in July to get the project started.

For a glimpse into this training, watch this video below to see how this training is changing the lives of some of our Haitian trainees.

In addition to our trip to Haiti, we recently held a TIMBo Foundations training in Concord, NH. This training was intense, powerful and empowering for so many of the participants and it helped us to understand how life changing this curriculum really is. Our next TIMBo Foundations training will be held in Washington DC and registration is OPEN!

Read below to hear what some of our trainees have to say about the training and you'll understand why many of our NH participants will be joining us in Haiti in July!

"It was an amazing experience! I didn't realize how much I would learn about myself in the process. I think the whole program is so powerful and I hope more and more people get to experience it."-TIMBo trainee

"This was, by far, the most life-changing experiences at a training I ever had. The power of the curriculum, the deep connection I felt to this group, and the intense healing I experienced was so beautiful." -TIMBo trainee 

"I have never had a workshop experience that touched me so deeply. I came home with my heart so open and felt the positive results of that in all of my relationships including my family, students and clients. I am inspired to become a facilitator as I believe this body of work can change the lives of women all over the world." 
Maltz, LICSW, Black Belt Nia Instructor  

We are so excited to continue with the TIMBo certification training program and empower so many of you in becoming leaders in this program.
