Each module offers a series of brief videos that flesh out one tool or concept. Some modules have a pre and post self assessment for you to track your progress and integrate your learning.
Everyone begins with the Foundations module, and completing that will unlock every other available module. From there you can choose any module in any order you wish or go back and revisit a video. A new module will be added each month.
You can re watch any video any time. The keyword search in the top menu can help you find a tool in a previous video.
Once you have been a member for a year, you keep permanent access to any module you’ve completed even after you are no longer a paying member.
Intro To Anxiety In You
Managing anxiety is less about “trying harder” and more about slowing down and deepening awareness of: HOW anxiety shows up in your mind and body.

Life Giving List
Sometimes anxiety can’t be worked through, it has to be displaced. Anxiety struggles to reside alongside love and laughter, so cultivating life giving habits is an essential Capable Life practice.

Groups work together, consciously or unconsciously to stay the same. This is part of what makes leadership so hard, but a canny leader can anticipate resistance and dissolve it, rather than push directly against it and be frustrated.
Lowering Anxiety In Them

Family of Origin Dynamics
We were all children once. And we all grew into adulthood. Because we make meaning out of our experiences and because our early experiences can forge deep meaning, we can find much freedom and liberation by exploring the dynamics in our family of origin. This module offers some simple and then some deeper tools to explore these dynamics and how they impact us now.
Simple Reactivity Training
While Systems Theory can get deep and complex, sometimes the most helpful thing is to notice reactivity in its simplest form. In this brief video we look at getting bigger and smaller and broad categories of false needs. Of course, like all our tools we also look at reactivity in groups.
Anxiety, Freedom and The Gospel
Chronic anxiety is based on assumptions, false needs and false beliefs. Chronic anxiety puts us in a false reality so we can no longer see what is true and we struggle to see God. The good news of Jesus is true, sets us free and leads us into freedom. Of course the challenge is living into this reality.
Enneagram and Your Anxiety
How does Enneagram interact with Systems Theory? In this module, Capable Life coach Jimmy Carnes leads us in ways to understand our postures, reactions and more based on our enneagram number. While it is helpful to know your number going into this module, you can still benefit without knowing about the enneagram or your number.
