Well-Being – How to Create and Sustain it

retreatingWell-being: “a good or satisfactory condition of existence characterized by health, happiness and prosperity.”

How is your well-being? What areas of your life could be enhanced?

In this interactive workshop individuals will learn the 5 domains of well-being from the latest evidence-based research in positive psychology. They will discover how to balance their domains to boost and sustain their overall well-being.  Attendees will leave with tools, class materials and practical applications to enhance their well-being in 2016 and beyond.

Wholehearted Living and Parenting

Utilizing the research of Brené Brown (who wrote The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, and her new book Rising Strong), this interactive and creative workshop delves in to what it takes to be wholehearted (the 10 guideposts), how to align with our values, and how to show up as our authentic selves, in our home, with our family and out in the world.  Participants will receive a copy of Brené Brown’s wholehearted parenting manifesto to take away and develop for their home and with their family.

Wholehearted Living: A workshop introduction based on the research of Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection 

DW_HeavyQuoteImages5“Wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of worthiness.  It means cultivating the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough.  It’s going to bed at night thinking, Yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid, but that does not change the fact that I’m also brave and worthy of love and belonging.” Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection

This creative workshop is for you if this quote speaks to you and you would like to learn more about wholeheartedness and the practices that can be incorporated in your daily life to help you live a more wholehearted life, based on the research of Brené Brown.  This workshop is facilitated by Helen Samson Mullen, PhD, a Certified Daring WayTM Facilitator.
