In these days of Covid pandemic, do those words sound familiar?
Even pre-Covid, an estimated 80% of Americans live a life that is so dominated by stress that they suffer harm — emotionally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually.
Millie Grenough, the founder of Oasis, knows that routine too well. Admittedly hard-headed, she says that it took a near-death accident to wake her up to the craziness of her own lifestyle. In her days of recuperation, she realized that unless she did something different, she wouldn’t be around much longer. Healing in her backyard hammock, Millie looked for ways to avoid the rat race when she returned to work. She developed four 60-second Strategies that didn’t cost a cent and could help her whenever, wherever. They worked. Her colleagues noticed, and wanted them for themselves.
Millie is known for her ability to inspire people to do what they thought was impossible. Her Oasis Strategies do the same: they help frazzled teams to focus, Type AA personalities to work with calmer effectiveness, shy leaders to gain confidence, stressed people to change their entrenched habits to pleasurable actions.
CEOs use the Oasis Strategies to sharpen their focus. Leaders use them to increase their awareness and perception. Coaches, educators, clergy, and managers use Oasis to help themselves and their clients. Health professionals use them to build resilience for themselves and for their patients.
The simple power and science-based effectiveness of Oasis explain why they appeal to people of different cultural and educational backgrounds, and of varying ages and professions. Millie’s six years living and working in South America and Europe, her trainings with Jon Kabat-Zinn, Thich Nhat Hanh, Ilana Rubenfeld, and Francine Shapiro open her to many facets of wisdom. A long-time Social Worker, Professional Coach, EMDR practitioner with a specialty in Performance Enhancement, Millie is currently the Lead Trainer for the Oasis Program and a Clinical Instructor in Psychiatry at the Yale University School of Medicine.
An ex-shy Kentuckian turned international presenter, and ex-nun turned nightclub singer, Millie walks her talk. She knows that people can change. Her Oasis Strategies are designed to help individuals and groups make such important changes with enjoyment and confidence.
The Oasis Strategies have now helped thousands of people around the world find greater balance, focus, health, and pleasure. Oasis Training Program has graduates throughout the USA, in Europe, Latin America, and New Zealand. The Oasis Stress Experts delight in meeting the specific needs and desires of organizations, businesses, and groups.
Hindu Business Line calls Oasis “A whiff of fresh air.”
