Case Studies 1

Practitioner Guidance

An interactive virtual shadowing

featuring these focuses of study:

challenging initiation


real-time integration

mediation and validation

intervention choices in disocciative states

preparation/mindset considerations

group dynamics with couples

video presentation of the Case Studies (2 minutes)


Practitioners of any experience level who:

  • value peer networks and ongoing supervision, be it collective or one-on-one

  • want to brainstorm and problem-solve in a supportive, curated environment

  • see Best Practices and Ethical Commitments as guiding lights to inform their offering

  • value cohort networks and ongoing reflection from peers

  • want to learn more and continually evolve

  • continue to allow themselves to be impacted

  • wish to align their skillsets from their other honed offerings with the uniqueness of the God molecule


  • examining case studies provides answers to question marks

  • working together with other practitioners creates a hive mind

  • practitioners don’t always have access to mentors, a cohort, or other means of supervision

  • because you want this experience to be offered with excellence

  • because this experience is unique and deserves a specified understanding and approach

  • because we never stop learning

what’s more?

the guide

I have the depth of character and breadth of experience to offer you guidance that is supportive while challenging, full yet spacious, personable yet professional, encouraging yet humbling.


The password to the Breath of Five page is ‘one’

I call what I’m offering here ‘guidance’ because that is accurate and honest. I am teaching, sharing, conveying my knowledge and experience, providing direction, answering questions, and facilitating dialogue.

Mentorship, to me, can’t be offered online. The in-person modules Advanced Shadowing and the Gathering of Guides is where we can enter ‘mentorship territory’.

This programme is what I wished for when I began this work as a practitioner. It remains my wish today. And it can’t be done without you.

And so, it is for us.

[I want to] acknowledge the incredible vulnerability it took for [chad] to offer this up for investigation.



In the words of previous case study participants, a case study offers:

“…much self reflection about what I would want to accomplish in a case like this.”

“…[a] full scope of a client experience; the snags we can encounter during a session….”

“…[a way to] to meet other practitioners. It is always nice to observe and learn from the experiences of others. It allows me to expand my practice in a much quicker and efficient way.” .

I thought this module was awesome, and I thank you again for providing this valuable material.



I’m impressed and inspired by Chad’s vulnerability in sharing these cases and his willingness to humbly receive criticism for the sake of others learning benefit (and his).
Thank you! I love you!



[Meeting other practitioners] has been the best part of all of this. Because we are all connecting through your trusted presence, there seems to be an immediate trust and openness among us which is meaningful and valuable.
