Here at Growing Humankindness we offer three home study courses that you can take at any time:
- Align: Heal the Battle with Your Inner Rebel helps you soften internal feelings of “you can’t make me” when you try to create healthy changes
- Emerge: Create a New Habit helps you eat less sugar with mindfulness and self compassion
- and When Food is Your Mother helps you make sense of the emotional bond you have with food
The home study bundle
These three courses offer so much support to help you create a less worried and dysregulated relationship with food and a more compassionate and less worried relationship with yourself.
You can get unlimited online access to all three courses in our home study bundle. The home study bundle is one payment of $350 USD or two monthly payments of $175. This is a savings of $300 (if you buy the courses separately, they’re $650 USD.)
You can learn more about the courses that are included below.
Our home study courses
Align is for you if you reactively push against help and support and get stuck in feelings of resistance – “No, you can’t make me!” – when you try to make positive changes with food and other areas of your life.
In this course, you’ll learn how to soften the inner conflict between the part of you that wants to change and the part of you that pushes back. Defusing this conflict will help you follow through on the changes you want to make, set healthy limits, and express a greater sense of power and agency in your life. Align is $200 USD.
If you overuse sugar for stress relief, to care for your emotions, or to self regulate, this course will help you change your eating habits with gentleness and insight. You’ll receive daily emotional support and learn how to apply self compassion to the process of habit change, so you can create more nourishing self talk and build resilience, that internal sense of, “I trust myself to move through this.”
This course is our most popular and has been taken by thousands from around the world since 2012. *Note – this course used to be called The 30 Day Lift. It was renamed and revised in 2019 as Emerge: Create a New Habit.
Emerge is $200 USD.
We tend to think of overeating or binge eating as a ‘bad habit.’ But relational neuroscience has helped us understand that our addictions – including food addictions – are emotional bonds – places of safety, warmth and ‘holding’ that we turn to when we’re overwhelmed by pain, alarm, or distress.
In moments of overwhelm, this emotional bond with food – and the needs that drive it – can override other needs, such as a need for health or nurturing limits. In When Food is Your Mother, you’ll learn more about this new understanding of addiction and ways you can nurture the healing process.
When Food is Your Mother is $250 USD.
How long do I have access to the courses?
Our home study courses are hosted on the Growing Humankindness Mighty Network, a beautifully cultivated, private, ad free space where you have unlimited online access. These courses do not expire.
What if I want more help?
Sometimes, you take a home study course and recognize that you need more support – that it’d be helpful to have a place to ask questions, get support, or connect with others.
If this sounds like you, you may be interested in joining The Growinghumankindness community, our support group.
The difference between a home study course and the support group is the interactivity and level of support. In the community, you have access to our entire library of courses. You can also attend bimonthly webinars where you can ask questions, practice exercises together, and get support. You can pair up with a Listening Partner for regular emotional support.
And if you struggle to follow through on courses on your own, we go through courses together as a cohort throughout the year.
What if I take a course and it isn’t the right fit for me?
