This is a 12-part series that brings humans together over Zoom with expert, world-class facilitators curated by our wellness partner, Elevated Mindset. Be prepared to embark on a monthly experiential journey of remembering where you will break out of the robotic grind and soften your armour, re-awakening to your authentic, vulnerable, gritty and sensual selves. For each monthly series, you’ll get 4 CFPC Mainpro+ credits (that’s all your mandatory credits for the year, family docs!)

Understory's Other Foundational Program


The more we get together, together, together, the more we get together the more human we'll be.

We designed this experience recognizing that many of the ideas that we’ve been chewing on require time to digest. This 12-part series explores monthly themes that invite women to shed their layers and reconnect with who they are when they are out of auto pilot. Who are you when there are no shoulds and supposed to dos blocking the way?

While many of our offerings are self-directed, we wanted to create one community-based highly experiential journey because, well, we’ve missed you. We love being together and showing up as humans exploring what’s possible when we come together in one magical space.
So, we have crafted an experience that invites us to share and witness each other's humanity so that we can hold and love all of our brokenness in one giant cocoon of keeping it real. 

What's going on here?

Each Elevated Mindset expert will lead a set of 3 programs in the series so that the participants have time to process the lessons, build trust with the instructor, and integrate the insights more deeply. 

Please, come join us as we take off our armour so we can get off the treadmill we run everyday, and see what we notice when we stop trying so hard. We welcome you to come unmasked and imperfect. Sample themes include Presence and Control (October), What’s in the Shadows (November), and
Loving All Your Parts (December). 

  • Each month’s theme will be facilitated by a world-class expert on Zoom for 90-minutes (sessions will be recorded)
  • Each meet-up will include a guided practice, somatic technique, or good ol' fashioned movement practice (because we believe the mind-body connection is real)
  • Prior to the session, you will receive an email and introduction to monthly theme
  • After the session, you will receive a final email with integration tools to deepen your learning (and a link to the recording)

Elevated Mindset

The most exciting part of The Immersive is that we’ve partnered with a well-being goddess, Michelle Bertumen, founder of Elevated Mindset to bring together world-renowned facilitators to support our community. Elevated Mindset has spent a great deal of energy impacting change in the world of corporate wellness through innovative, science-based health and wellness strategies that strengthen resilience, creativity and peak performance within the individual and teams.
We’re beyond delighted to feel the warmth of their touch in our physician community.

For future months, times/dates will be communicated to you prior to the start of each 3-month series. 


Each session will include a somatic practice and movement. Then, together we will tackle a single theme through instruction, discussion, and personal reflection in a 90-minute experiential workshop with a (literally) world-class instructor. 



Our first 3-part series will be led by Darya Haitoglou. Darya is a Psychologist, NLP master and Executive Coach for strategic interventions for personal and business growth. She is the founder of Enrich Global, an organization that
creates phenomenal transformations for leaders (and cool fact, billionaires). She is a contributor for Huffington Post and BBC Radio.

Course material via email and a 90-minute Zoom session at the end of the month with expert instruction

An experiential course built on community to remind us that it's, gasp, maybe ok to be human.

Movement and grounding techniques with somatic practitioners

Opportunities to share, observe, reflect and just listen while being as "yourself" as you dare to be

Growth and change looks different for everyone but one thing we know to be true is that incredibly meaningful healing occurs in relationships so let's get together and get our relating on.
