1 in 5 American adults experience a mental health condition. 1 in 10 young individuals experience at least one period of major depression. And 1 in 25 Americans live with a serious mental health condition, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. Unless we do things differently from how we have been operating, we’ll continue to live in insecurity, we’ll continue to live in fear of one another, and we’ll continue to be at the effect of the contagions of depression, anxiety, and suicide.

Join us and learn how to do things differently - how to live as we truly are.

What will you learn from this seminar?

  1. Discover how the two types of belief systems determine whether we simply go through life or live as we deeply desire
  2. Discover how to let go of the factors that sustain suffering
  3. Discover how to remove the blocks to life satisfaction and to authentic living

During this 2-hour seminar, we will guide you through an experiential learning process where you will be learning what it takes to help your clients, and how to implement that in daily practice.
