Oasis in the Overwhelm Webinar and TGI Info Session



Tuesday, March 24, 2015 from 7pm to 9pm

Join us for an engaging webinar with Millie Grenough, coach, author, and founder of "OASIS in the Overwhelm" and Michael Pergola, President of The Graduate Institute on Tuesday, March 24th from 7pm to 9pm.

Learn about Millie's fascinating background as a nightclub singer and progressive nun in the Catholic tradition. Take a deep dive as Michael interviews Millie about her background and the origin of "OASIS in the Overwhelm". Learn how Millie was inspired after a near-death bicycle accident woke her up to the realities of life.

Begin to see the profound knowledge that underlies the simple and direct practices that Millie has developed: 60-second strategies that allow each of us at any moment of the day to access deep relaxation and to connect more clearly with the fundamental wisdom that leads us to peace, wholeness, healthy relationships and the sweet spot for learning and growth.

Learn why finding the “sweet spot for learning” is fundamental to the holistic and integrative degree and certificate programs at The Graduate Institute. The programs are flexible and affordable for adult professionals seeking to make an impact in the world and to live the life they always promised themselves.
