C3 stands for Calm Circuit Connection. Our world can be a tough place to navigate with the different stressors in our lives.

It is critical that our community have the tools to communicate effectively with each other during emotionally driven conversations. C3 is understanding how each of our individual brains “floods” with Adrenaline and how our responses to situations can calm or explode a response.

C3 targets the adrenaline that disrupts brain connections and fuels aggression. C3 techniques help angry or distraught people calm down, gain control over themselves, and become safer and easier to work with.
