The best way to achieve mindful, balanced eating is to address the root cause of why you are not able to achieve and /or maintain it. That’s where our specialists come in. They teach you everything you need to know about why you struggle with food, what is really triggering the frustrating way you think and behave, why you haven’t been successful in changing your behaviours, and, most importantly, what you can do to gain a new and healthy approach to food and the world around you.
In the first 2 hours of this event you’ll learn why you do what you do with food, relationships, anger, procrastination, depression, anxiety, isolation, exercise, drugs, alcohol, work/school, and many other harmful coping strategies.
Then you’ll enjoy the experience of learning 3 simple tools that have the power to heal each and every one of those harmful patterns, once and for all. You’ll get lots of time for practice and support so you will know exactly how to use your new tools ‘out there’ and begin to see significant changes in the way you relate to all aspects of your life and you’ll notice how much less anxious (and how much more peaceful) you feel.
When you have simple, logical steps to follow, the process of creating lasting change isn’t hard. Regardless of how many programs, methods, tools etc. you’ve tried before, you can do this because it’s simple and it just makes sense.
Join Michelle Nov. 9th to 11th, 2012 and learn how to feel confident and happy in your own skin and balanced in all the things you really want to do. You will see yourself following through on the goals you set for yourself and you will feel the peace that comes from knowing that everything you want for yourself is within your grasp.
If you are reading this, in the past you’ve been stuck in your efforts to change old harmful patterns (like overeating, dieting, procrastinating, isolating, drinking, spending etc.) because, without knowing it, you’ve been compromising yourself in a variety of ways, all in a fruitless pursuit of the lasting approval and validation of others; that sweet, dreamy place where you could actually finally rest and know that you’re okay, and that everything is going to be just fine.
We’ll uncover and teach you how to change your past training in how you think and behave towards yourself and, others, and the world around you, that has prevented you from listening to and valuing your own feelings and needs. This, sadly, may have naturally led you to feel anxious and to use harmful patterns of behaviour like overeating, restriction, isolation, anger, drinking etc., to cope with that anxiety and frustration!
This has created a vicious cycle of doing things that don’t really demonstrate kindness and caring for yourself – feeling anxious as a result – and using those harmful coping strategies to numb out – leading to more anxiety and a great need for those coping strategies….and round and round we go!
But not after this weekend! We’re going to be identifying the thoughts and behaviours that keep you stuck and then you’ll learn clear and simple strategies for making the changes that you’d like to make in all areas of your life, that feel safe and authentic and most importantly, doable!
Take part in the July 26th to 28th, 2013 workshop and learn that Relationships are really quite simple when you understand the basics of human evolution, development and relating. In this transformative meeting of minds you’ll come to understand why people (including you!) do what they do.
Throughout the entire weekend you’ll be learning and practicing the basic equation of relationships and how to ensure that you are doing your part in every relationship as best you can. This is fundamentally important to healthy relationships and good self-esteem because when you know you’re doing your part as best you can you will naturally feel confident, secure and peaceful regardless of what the other person is doing/thinking or feeling.
You’ll also learn how to tell, and what to do, if you find that you’re doing more than your fair share of the emotional work in a relationship. And you’ll know how to create a sense of true safety, trust, respect and intimacy with all the key people in your life. And we’ll explore:
– How to ask directly and respectfully, with confidence for what you need, from anyone, anytime, anywhere – without feeling scared, selfish, or having heart palpitations!; and
– How to feel confident in your ability to communicate in a way that demonstrates respect and dignity for yourself and creates safety and trust in all of your relationships.
Relationships really are quite simple. It’s just a matter of knowing the relationship equation. So join us, learn the equation, and see how easy relationships can be.
