From Oy! to Joy! ~ From Stressed to Blessed ~ From Worrier to Warrior

On just about every street corner (in West Bloomfield at least), you'll find a gym, a workout center or a unique exercise facility.

As important as it is to work out and strengthen one's body, it is (at the very least) equally important to strengthen one's emotional, soulful and mental being. 
 
Please join us for a unique workout...

Preview to the six classes/topics:

 

Lesson 1 Achieving Authenticity

Addressing Impostor Syndrome
When praised for a good deed, 70% of people admit to squirming because they feel their act lacked authenticity. In this opening session, discover a place of objective authenticity within yourself that can weather any self-doubt and help you build confidence in your genuine goodness.

Lesson 2 Embracing Flaws

Addressing Shame, Frustration, and Feelings of Inadequacy
Wrestling with feelings of overwhelm, procrastination, or general not-enough-ness? This session explores the seemingly senseless feelings of inadequacy and charts a course to transform them from adversary to ally.

Lesson 3 Rethinking Regret

Addressing Unhealthy Guilt
We all slip, and it’s natural to feel some regret or guilt when we do. But can we focus on past actions without becoming paralyzed by bad feelings? In Lesson 3, we’ll challenge the negativity associated with regret, finding a catalyst for remarkable growth where it’s least expected.

Lesson 4 Peering Through Pain

Addressing Pain, Anguish, and Anxiety
An optimistic attitude is a noble goal, but the sincere, burning flames of sadness, suffering, or loss can be incredibly difficult to douse. This session embraces the validity of pain while sensitively enhancing our internal perspectives to let the sun peek through despite the reality of our suffering.
 

Lesson 5 Living Joyfully

Finding Happiness and Fulfillment
Things are fine—you've got what you need in health, finances, and relationships. But is “feeling fine” the same as feeling truly, energetically happy? By looking at common patterns in chasing inner contentment, Lesson 5 helps us pave a new path to more dependably enthusiastic living.

Lesson 6 Refreshing Relationships

Remodeling Our Approach to Love and Relationships
Without a doubt, healthy relationships are key to positive emotions, but they are so much easier said than done. This session explores the triumphs and dysfunctions of human relationships, formulating a steady approach to allowing yours to flourish despite inherent strains.
