Membership Community

The LIMA being founders invite you to join our ongoing LIMA beings community. As a member, on the first Friday of the month you will receive a video of Marissa, Chris, Lynn, Barrie & Kathy using real-world examples to explore a particular aspect of how the science of ABCs (Antecedent, Behavior, Consequence) can help us behave more effectively and compassionately with ourselves, with friends and family, with colleagues and clients, with strangers and, perhaps even with adversaries. On the third Friday of the month our incredible community of members gathers on Zoom to participate in a live and lively conversation focused by questions that arise out of the recorded video. The insight and vulnerability expressed in these conversations has been remarkable month after month, and we warmly welcome what you have to bring to the community. In addition, all members have access to a private Facebook group for ongoing sharing and reflection.

Rave Reviews!

"LIMA Beings was spurred to life due to the pandemic and a need for connection but has evolved into so much more. A place for animal professionals, who have embraced compassion for and connection with others (humans and other animals), to improve these skills by learning from each other. Every Founders and Community call is riddled with eye-opening moments and perspectives. Finding compassion for others and myself is not always easy. This community provides a safe place for open discussion and learning." - Debbie, community member
