Ragini Elizabeth Michaels
Ragini Elizabeth Michaels, Mentor & Strategist For Conscious Leadership & Conscious Living
Ragini is a true expert in facilitating communication between the conscious and unconscious minds to support the emergence of practical spirituality. Her approach reflects her extensive repertoire of behavioral change skills, as well as personal wisdom from 40 years of exploring many forms of meditation and stress release. These elements create a unique perspective and style that supports people’s desire to blend the wisdom of their spiritual lives into the fabric of their material lives to produce balance, a sense of purpose, and joy and inspiration from daily living.
Ragini is the founder of Facticity® Trainings, Inc., an international training, coaching, and consulting company established in 1988 offering certification training in Paradox Management, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Ericksonian Hypnosis. Her original work on the Psychology of Paradox has received critical acclaim and taken her throughout America, Canada, Europe, and India presenting workshops and seminars. She also created and ran the Paradox Wisdom School in Seattle, WA from 2000 to 2010, as well as Paradox Soirees and Salons to introduce and deepen the work of the Wisdom School.
She is the creator of eight hypnosis guided meditation mp3's, (Hypnosis to Heal The Heart & Soul (4 offerings), and Hypnosis for Conscious Awakening (4 offerings) and the author of three books on the psychology of paradox, her most recent being Unflappable – 6-Steps To Staying Happy, Centered, & Peaceful No Matter What (Conari Press, 2012). She also offers a new compilation of 40 delightful musings in The Wildly Quiet Presence of God: Musings Of A Modern Marketplace Mystic (Create Space, 2015), and her newest offering contains 44 musings paired with gorgeous images - The Jewels Of Here And How: Awe, Reverence, & Ever Deepening Gratitude (Create Space, 2018).
On-Line Programs: Ragini currently offers two on-line training programs related to this work. Centered 24-7 / Leading From The Eye Of The Storm is her mentoring program designed for the individual who wishes to walk on the cutting edge of Conscious Leadership & Conscious Living. This is based on practical wisdom gleaned from her original modeling of mystic psychology, combined with the power of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming).
The Paradox Management Certification training is designed to expand the tool bag of Professional Coaches, Counselors, Therapists, and Consultants who wish to learn her original 6-Step process for how to recognize, neutralize and redirect the energies of polarization and paradox itself.
Ragini's Approach: Her approach focuses on creating the necessary brain/body links or connections that allow the clients’ goals to actually emerge in their real, everyday behavior. For example, talking about stress reduction and reducing stress are two different things. Ragini operates on the assumption that every person has the inner guidance and sense of direction they need to find balance, joy, purpose, and fulfillment in daily life. She perceives her job is to help them find it, while feeling safe and having fun.
My Clients: I have worked with a wide range of people from CEO’s to line workers in organizations such as Microsoft, Boeing, Amazon, Twitter, and Trends Northwest, as well as people from non-profit organizations such as Ground Wire, Women’s Funding Alliance, and Resource Equity. I have also worked with health and arts organizations such as the International BodyTalk Association, and the Karamazov Brothers Juggling Troupe. Whether serving as a coach, consultant, counselor, or trainer, my focus is helping my clients efficiently attain agreed upon reachable outcomes in a relaxed, safe, and enjoyable manner.
