Lunch and Learn - Transition from Rehab to Performance

Date: Friday, November 1
Time: 12-1p.m.
Cost: Free and open to all
Facilitators: Sarah Booker

What are the best ways to transition from the rehabilitation stage of an orthopedic injury to performing on the field, court, ice, or trails? Sarah will discuss concepts relevant to some common long-term/recurrent injuries such as IT band syndrome, tendinopathies, patellofemoral syndrome and ankle sprains, as well as late stage recovery from surgeries such as rotator cuff repair and ACL reconstruction. Some over-arching themes will include regaining mobility in the affected joint and surrounding joints, movement patterns including gait, hip and core strength, increasing volume, building an interdisciplinary team, and mental preparedness.

Lunch and Learn - Intuitive Directions: An innovative approach to gaining clarity when you're stuck

Date: Friday, December 6
Time: 12-1 p.m.
Cost: Free and open to all
Facilitators: Carla Kimball

Intuitive Directions is a tool for reflection, problem solving, journaling, and daily inspiration.

This tool offers an accessible and fun way to gain insight into the unknown. Seven years in the making, it contains seven decks organized around seven themes with questions and images specifically designed to break out of patterned ways of thinking and move the energy forward.

Questions evoke curiosity and create openings in our thinking. Images engage our imagination, draw on past experiences, and can lead us into further clarity. Rolling the dice introduces an element of serendipity leading to themes that might provide fresh perspectives.

During this one-hour introduction to the deck, participants will discover the power of image and question as they consider an issue that requires some clarity.  Each person will get a chance to experience the deck as they roll the dice to get a new perspective.
