Resiliency and Intelligence:

Learning Online and Regulating Your Way to Success

Sign Up for Waiting List


To provide student resources for a resilient campus in this time of crisis, we developed an online course to teach students to regulate their nervous systems, cultivate emotional resiliency, engage with issues of race and manage anxiety during a time in which many of them are facing tremendous challenges in their families and academic lives. This 4-week, 4-module online course empowers students to recognize the patterns in their nervous systems that bring on stress. During this time in which many students lack adequate support, they will be given the strategies needed to regulate their nervous systems and relieve anxiety. Students will leave this course with life-long tools for engaging effectively online by gaining awareness about their learning styles, relational needs, and learning process.

For me, the most important takeaways are that my bodily sensations can be a door into processing past or present experiences, that the very things I’ve been running from can actually BE the path to healing. That the whole way I’ve been perceiving anxiety and pain can be shifted, for my benefit.

Anita has given me knowledge and embodied tools to use in times of distress, but has also been an important teacher in my unfolding process of dealing with my past, grounding my present, and helping me envision a more peaceful, authentic future. As an academic worker, I often struggle to integrate my intellectual work with my embodied experience, and working with Anita has helped me do that with wonderful results in both my personal and professional life. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
–A. Ford, Assistant Professor, Sociology

This course is an invitation to deepen and tap into the resources you inherently have. An invitation to being your own resource.
–Miguel Alejandro Castillo

Thank you, Anita and Angelica, for a warm and incisive workshop! I will absolutely take this knowledge into my classrooms and into my own life and ability to resource myself.
–Jen Malkowski

I am incredibly grateful to have been able to participate in this workshop. It was eye-opening to learn about these tools and practices and I know this will impact the rest of my life.
–Abril Navarro

Thinking of how all things cycle and how we need those moments or periods of rest to be able to have the energy and resilience to get through the overwhelming times was powerful for me. Being aware of and grounded in our physical body and emotions is not the antithesis of developing our intellect, in fact it is essential to allow deeper and more impactful learning.
