Connecting Counts Program
The Connecting Counts Program is a revolutionary new program that teaches youths how to use the power that lies within them through the practice of Connecting.
It allows them to release the champion within to focus on the unique and personal messages that come from the authentic part of who they truly are at their core. This new and powerful practice uses connecting as a new tool for them to claim their lives and move forward with joy and ease throughout their life.
About The Connecting Counts Program
The Connecting Counts Program has bought this new practice of Connecting to the forefront for the youth of today. This new practice can provide exceptional life skills and formulate an entirely new way of dealing with stress, anxiety, challenges and concerns that today’s youth face. We offer an online program and school based programs. We intend to educate today’s youth and ignite a new pathway for living.
Who Is This Program For?
The program is designed to meet the needs and challenges of youths from ages (12-18)
This interactive group seen provides the youths with tools to assist them with their changing world. Between the ages of 12-18 seems to be where the majority of life transitions occur. By giving the gift of Connecting to our youth we are preparing them to face any and all challenges with a greater sense of stability and clarity.

Are you worried about your child and seek to help them in ways that traditional methods have failed?
Then you’re in the right place. Connecting provides the necessary tools to help the youth of today succeed in unimaginable ways. We as parents are always trying to help find what gives our children the most positive experience for the best expression of themselves.
When you see your child struggling with any issue big or small it turns a parent and a family inside out. Now you have a solution, the answers you have been waiting for. The time is now to begin to help your child learn to help themselves by the practice of Connecting.
Are you concerned about your students and seek to help them in ways that traditional methods have failed?
We offer presentations to introduce this concept to the youth of today.
The presentation includes a slide presentation, question/answer and coaching Connecting section led by Indira Dyal-Dominguez, published author and founder of the practice of Connecting.
This presentation is customized to your needs of your organization, your students and the parents of your students. Contact us to find out more about how we can support you in providing the best tools to help your students succeed.
My Commitment to Connecting Counts
& How Connecting Helped My Son
BY: ROSE LIMONGELLI
Director of the Connecting Counts Program
As Director of the Connecting Counts Program for youths, I oversees the coordination and administration of all aspects of the INDIRA Life Connecting Counts Program. I am an advocate for today’s youth by assisting children and families in dealing with social, behavioral and academic issues. A mother of twin teenage sons, I have direct experience of the current challenges and relationship issues that today’s youth faces on a daily basis.
I am committed and dedicated to eradicating the internal student turmoil that has today’s youth turning to a variety of issues. Bullying, suicide, drugs and seclusion resulting in anxiety, depression and possible gun violence are very real dilemmas. My mission is to open up awareness to the champion within giving them access to their gifts and purpose in life.
I am a facilitator, mentor, public speaker and co-creator of the conversations that the youth of today need to be a part of and hear. I am committed to teaching the principles of Connecting, unplugging the mind of negativity and changing life, on a global level within INDIRA Life.
My personal experience as a mother begins like this…
My son has suffered with anxiety for several years. He is 12 years old now and we’ve tried every modality of therapy, EFT tapping, praying and everything left him with a little to no amount of relief.
One day while he was at school he called me up to tell me that he didn’t feel well so I picked him up from school right away. When he got in the car he started crying hysterically about an incident that happened at school and he was so upset that he didn’t want to stay in school for the rest of the day.
In my mind I didn’t think the incident was such a big deal but felt like he blew it up in his mind and was up obsessing and ruminating about it. I tried to ask him to do some deep breathing techniques and relax and we talked it out but his symptoms just kept getting worse and worse. I was trying to remain calmed but inside I was so upset because I didn’t think I had the answers to help him and my heart sank.
I had recently started working with Indira and thought maybe I could try some of the techniques I’ve learned with her with him. We were driving in the car so I had him as a captive audience and he was so upset at this point I think he would’ve tried anything to get just a little relief. I put on the Connection that Indira gave me on my car radio and I told him to close his eyes and just follow along with what Indira was saying.
After the Connection was over I asked him how he felt and he said much better. He said he felt a sense of peace and he stopped crying and worrying. As a mother and also fellow sufferer of anxiety and panic disorder I felt so happy that he was able even just for a brief moment to go within himself and find that place of peace.
Now he knows that he’s got the gift of being able to go to that place of peace that he can get to himself and not rely on others to give to him. After he calm down a little while later I asked him if the Connecting helped him and he said, “Yes it did” and he thinks it could help other kids that suffer in the same way. I was thankful that he had hope.
