Resourcing and Self-care with Stacy Scheel-Hirsch

Published on: 13th December, 2021

I love this interview with Stacy Scheel-Hirsch about 'resourcing'. Resourcing is how we access and apply self-care. Imagine all the resources we tap into within to survive and thrive.

Stacy talks us through how to access our inner resources, how mindfulness is a helpful tool and the different dimensions of wellness.

We explore stories and examples and she also shares with us about her free weekly meditation group that meets online.

Stacy is a trauma-informed mindfulness teacher, resilience coach and organizational wellness consultant. She is passionate about helping people find safe and supportive ways to connect with their humanity so that they can live each day with more purpose, empathy, and a greater sense of belonging.

Clients describe Stacy as “a deeply rooted person” and “one of those rare knowledgeable, sensitive, and talented individuals” with a “deep capacity for empathy and an ability to cut through foggy thinking with remarkable insight.”

She is the CEO and founder of Life Takes Practice™, the creator of Mindful Living at Work: An Eight-Week Mindfulness-Based Skills Program for the workplace, and the Mindfulness-Based Neuro-Somatic Engagement (MBNSE) Program. Stacy is also the co-founder of Cultivate, a writing and meditation retreat for women in beautiful Hood River, Oregon
