Ragini Elizabeth Michaels
Transformation Leadership Coach, Behavioral Change Specialist, Mindfulness/Consciousness Mentor, Author

Ragini is the founder of Facticity® Trainings, Inc., a training and consulting company established in 1988 offering certification training in Paradox Management, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), and Ericksonian Hypnosis. Her original work on awakened psychology and the psychology of paradox has received critical acclaim and taken her throughout America, Canada, Europe, and India, presenting workshops and seminars. She is the creator of eight hypnosis/meditation mp3s, and an author with five books focused on living with paradox and the uncertainty and chaos it creates. Ragini is a true expert on human communication styles and practical spirituality. Her approach relies on the practical application of her behavioral change skills and personal wisdom from over 4 decades of exploring meditation and stress release as it relates to living in a paradoxical world. These elements create a unique perspective and style that supports people’s desire to blend the wisdom of their spiritual lives into the fabric of their material lives to produce more verifiable results, a sense of purpose, and more joy and inspiration from daily living.

Ragini’s approach: Her approach establishes the brain/body links or connections that allow her clients’ goals to emerge in their real, everyday behavior. For example, talking about stress reduction and reducing stress are two different things. Ragini believes every person has the inner guidance and sense of direction they need to find joy, purpose, and fulfillment in daily life. She holds it is her job to help them find it while feeling safe and having fun.

Ragini’s clients: Ragini has worked with a wide range of people from CEOs to line workers in organizations such as Microsoft, Amazon, Boeing, and Trends Northwest, and in non-profit organizations such as Ground Wire and Women’s Funding Alliance. She has also worked with health and arts organizations such as the International BodyTalk Association, and The Karamazov Brothers Juggling Troupe. Whether serving as a coach, consultant, or trainer, Ragini’s work aims to help her clients efficiently reach agreed-upon practical and attainable outcomes in a relaxed, safe, and enjoyable manner.
