Susan Chandler, 5th degree black belt Ki-Aikido instructor, speaker, and corporate trainer, founded Chandler Resources in 1991 with a passion for making the insights from aikido accessible beyond the martial art.
That passion took Susan back to graduate school in 2001 to explore developments in brain science concerning the neural underpinnings of the interconnection between movement, mind, and emotion. She holds an M.A. in integrative social neuroscience, and continues to explore and write about the developing understanding of the integrative brain as it relates to everyday experience.
Her unique approach also draws upon her experience as a musician and teacher. Taken together, her multifaceted perspective – including the martial and performing arts, social and brain science, and insights from everyday living – creates a rich and powerful learning experience.
Susan has provided programs over the last 20 years to a wide range of businesses and organizations including hospitals, schools, aerospace companies, government offices, telecommunication companies, non-profits, and small businesses.
“She teaches power – quiet power, creative power – and in a way that’s much more active and activating than I have seen before.”
