Self-Esteem, Self-Confidence and Creativity Seminar, November 22, 2016

What are you inner voices telling you? Do they support your decisions? Do they build you up…..or tear you down?

Our self-esteem is largely effected by those inner voices. Self-esteem is affected by physical ill-health, negative life events such as losing your job or getting divorced, deficient or frustrating relationships, and a general sense of lack of control. Hence, in order to be successful both personally and socially, our self-esteem and self-confidence has to be strong and solid enough to believe in ourselves. People with a high self-esteem are more creative, more solution-oriented and generally more healthy, both physically and emotionally.

In this seminar, you will learn the exact meaning of self-esteem and self-confidence. Additionally, we will practice scientifically proven techniques to increase your self-esteem and help you lead a more happy and relaxed life. Come join us!

Self-Awareness and Mindfulness Seminar, November 15, 2016

Are you a mindful person? Are you aware of you your own wants and needs?

People have been asking themselves these questions for thousands of years.

‘Mindfulness’ is a hot topic in Western psychology at the moment: increasingly recognized as an effective way to reduce stress, increase self-awareness, enhance emotional intelligence, and effectively handle painful thoughts and feelings.

Although mindfulness has only recently been embraced by Western psychology, it is an ancient practice found in a wide range of Eastern philosophies, including Buddhism, Taoism and Yoga. Mindfulness involves consciously bringing awareness to your here-and-now experience with openness, interest, and receptiveness.

In this seminar, you will learn the exact meaning of mindfulness. Additionally, we will practice mindfulness techniques that can be performed almost anywhere and by anyone. Come join us!

Positive Communication & Wellbeing Seminar, November 08, 2016

Do you have positive communication in your relationships? Are your goals tied to your relationships and are you reaching your goals in a healthy and constructive way?

According to Positive Psychology, the science of happiness, positive communication is where each person is an active participant in helping create the other one’s positive future. The relationship starts with yourself and then extends to those around us. These relationships create positive emotions which science tells us is necessary to flourish. In an atmosphere of positivity, our strengths are discovered and we are able to move toward reaching milestones in our life as well as finding what we are truly meant to accomplish, our calling.

In this seminar, we will learn about the history and science of Positive Psychology. It’s principles are pillared in 5 areas referred to as P.E.R.M.A.
