Self improvement, family, health, work & finances, social, spirituality


    Available courses

    A core aspect of the Addiction Campuses "A Balanced-Life Program" is the Balanced Life Self-Assessment. We believe that in order to move forward, you have to know where you are today. That's what the Balanced Life Self-Assessment is all about.

    As you complete this assessment, you will see a picture of how balanced and your sense of well-being in each of the six areas of life balance: Health, Family, Social, Spirituality, Work and Finance, and Self-Improvement.

    By knowing where you are today, you can then make great decisions on where you need to focus to create a stronger balanced life worth living.


    A Balanced Life is a complete system to help you grow in six areas of life. Over the coming weeks, you will move through six courses which help you learn about yourself, your life, and create plans to how to build a balanced life worth living. These six courses include:

    The Now Habit

    Procrastination is a habit you develop to cope with anxiety about starting or completing a task. It is your attempted solution to cope with tasks that are boring or overwhelming. 

    In this course we will explore habits to lower your anxiety, fears, and self-doubts so you can stop using procrastination as an escape. When you learn to work efficiently - in the Flow State or Zone, using more of your brain-cell power, you have less reason to avoid important, top-priority tasks.

    The Now Habit frees you of shame and blame and moves you to a leadership perspective in your life. From this awakened sense of a larger, stronger self, you are free of the inner conflict between the inner voices of "you have to" versus, "but I don't want to". You begin to live your life from choice - a leadership function of your higher, human brain and your new identity as a producer.


    Breaking the Bonds of Codependency

    Healthy relationships are an important part of a balanced life. Unfortunately, often through the lens of “love and support” we create relationships that are unhealthy and codependent. The downward spiral of excessive emotional or psychological reliance on a partner, typically a partner who requires support due to an illness or addiction, becomes the defining mode of the relationship.


    In the course, we will be exploring the issue of codependency and how to build healthy, strong, and mutually validating relationships with those we care for and love. Through the lens of the bestselling book, Codependent No More: How to Stop Controlling Others and Start Caring for Yourself by Melody Beattie, we will unpack the meaning of codependency, who struggles with codependency, and the steps you can take to building self care in relationships.



    Forgiveness

    "We stood around the casket, my brother, my sister, and I, gazing down at what remained of the man whom we had always loved but sometimes hated, whom we tried to respect but for so many years feared and avoided. He barely resembled the formidable giant who wielded so much power over us when we were children. He had been seriously ill for a long, long time.

    I cannot tell you what my brother and sister where thinking as they stood beside me in that dimly lit funeral parlor. I, however, was remembering the man who adored my mother, who would lean over to kiss her outstretched arm while she poured his coffee and played footsie with her under the dinner table. I was thinking about the man who had been a skilled craftsman, an imaginative storyteller, an avid reader, and an exceptional gardener..."

    We have all been hurt. Lingering in the cobwebbed recesses of our mind is at least one memory - but more likely many memories - of parents who expected too much or too little, were overprotective and overbearing, distant and unaffectionate, absent or abusive...

    Yes, we have been hurt. As far back as childhood or as recently as last week, you may have experienced the sting of rejection, ridicule, humiliation, deception, disappointment, or abuse. This course is about healing those wounds.

    Of course, you may think that you have already done that in many cases. You may believe that you recovered from most of those old injuries and injustices years ago, that your painful or disappointing past experiences no longer affect you, and that may be true. But, for many, there are wounds yet to heal and through this course, we will explore the path to healing...and journey of forgiveness for yourself and your family.


    The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom

    In The Four Agreements, we consider an aspect of spirituality by revealing the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. The Four Agreements offers a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love.

    The Four Agreements that will be explored in this course include:

    • Be Impeccable with Your Word
    • Don't Take Anything Personally
    • Don't Make Assumptions
    • Always Do Your Best

    Self-Esteem: Discovering and Maintaining the Value of You

    It's easy to feel good about yourself when life is going well. A promotion at work or a new relationship can do wonders for your self-image. But what happens when things don't go so well? The problem with basin self-worth on life circumstances is that circumstances can change. The good news is that lasting self-esteem has less to do with what's going on in your life, and more to do with how you interpret it.

    Judging and rejecting yourself cause enormous pain. And in the same way that you would favor and protect a physical wound, you find yourself avoiding anything that might aggravate the pain of self-rejection in any way. To avoid more judgments and self-rejection, you erect barriers of defense. Perhaps you blame and get angry, or bury yourself in perfectionistic work. Or you brag. Or you make excuses. Sometimes you cover up the pain with drugs, alcohol, or other self-destructive behaviors.

    This course is about stopping the judgments. It's about healing the old wounds of hurt and self-rejection. How you perceive and feel about yourself can change. And then those perceptions and feelings change, the ripple effect will touch every part of your life with a gradually expanding sense of freedom.


    Brand "You"

    In Brand "You", authors David McNally and Karl D. Speak show that developing a personal brand is not about constructing a contrived image. Rather, it is a process of discovering who you really are and what you aspire to be. 

    The hallmark insight is that the best way to establish a strong and memorable brand is to make a positive difference in the lives of others through making lasting impressions that build trusting relationships.

    Your coach for this course, using the book by McNally and Speak, takes you through the process of identifying the key components of your brand, conveying that brand to the world, checking how closely your brand aligns with important relationships in your life - particularly the one with your employer - and assessing your progress along the way. 

    In this course, we will explore:

    • Personal Brand Basics
    • Designing Your Personal Brand of Making a Difference
    • Using the Power of Alignment to Build a Strong Personal Brand



    Imagine for a moment that you are standing in front of an audience, looking out into the crowd at many faces. Their expressions are sad, sorrowful, and sympathetic. You realize quickly by scanning the room that you are giving a eulogy at a funeral. And, to your surprise, this funeral happens to be your own.

    What will you say about your own life, your work, your relationships...your legacy?

    What is the expression on your face? Are you sad and full of a sense of loss and regret—not because you’ve passed, but because you didn’t live the life you imagined.
      
    Dr. Jason Brooks, author of the highly-anticipated and acclaimed book RESET: Reformatting Your Purpose for Tomorrow’s World, and Chief People Officer of Addiction Campuses, leads you on an exciting journey to: 

    • Create the perfect picture of your life through a time of deep personal exploration
    • Explore the Four Foundational Laws that govern all of your actions
    • Evaluate your current degree of life balance and create strategies to establish a greater balance in your life  
    • Develop crystal understanding of your life purpose, live your heart’s passion, create plans for success, develop strategies to persevere through obstacles, and celebrate your successes in life 
    Based on the professional experience, and extensive research of Dr. Jason Brooks, comes a highly personal, engaging and readable book many are calling “The book that changes its readers, and the industry of self-improvement—because nothing else has been so real." 
     
    RESET, however, is not the same for everyone. You are standing at the threshold of a "Radical RESET" in your life that will require making a sharp turn from the direction you are currently taking. 
     
    Staying focused on a vivid image of our purpose is essential to remaining on course. It is the daily discipline of refining that results in living the life you have always dreamed of living. 
     
    All of us, at some point, struggle with imbalance in our lives, our relationships, our faith, our personal growth, our finances and our careers. For you a RESET is critical.

     
    Your RESET is waiting for you!

     

    “Our work, sense of self, health, spirituality, finances, and social relationships aren’t singular entities,” says Dr. Brooks. “I developed the RESET Model to engage a life—not just an aspect of life—because no aspect of your life can truly find success if another is out of alignment.”

    Breaking the Bonds of Codependency

    Healthy relationships are an important part of a balanced life. Unfortunately, often through the lens of “love and support” we create relationships that are unhealthy and codependent. The downward spiral of excessive emotional or psychological reliance on a partner, typically a partner who requires support due to an illness or addiction, becomes the defining mode of the relationship.


    In the course, we will be exploring the issue of codependency and how to build healthy, strong, and mutually validating relationships with those we care for and love. Through the lens of the bestselling book, Codependent No More: How to Stop Controlling Others and Start Caring for Yourself by Melody Beattie, we will unpack the meaning of codependency, who struggles with codependency, and the steps you can take to building self care in relationships.



    Forgiveness

    "We stood around the casket, my brother, my sister, and I, gazing down at what remained of the man whom we had always loved but sometimes hated, whom we tried to respect but for so many years feared and avoided. He barely resembled the formidable giant who wielded so much power over us when we were children. He had been seriously ill for a long, long time.

    I cannot tell you what my brother and sister where thinking as they stood beside me in that dimly lit funeral parlor. I, however, was remembering the man who adored my mother, who would lean over to kiss her outstretched arm while she poured his coffee and played footsie with her under the dinner table. I was thinking about the man who had been a skilled craftsman, an imaginative storyteller, an avid reader, and an exceptional gardener..."

    We have all been hurt. Lingering in the cobwebbed recesses of our mind is at least one memory - but more likely many memories - of parents who expected too much or too little, were overprotective and overbearing, distant and unaffectionate, absent or abusive...

    Yes, we have been hurt. As far back as childhood or as recently as last week, you may have experienced the sting of rejection, ridicule, humiliation, deception, disappointment, or abuse. This course is about healing those wounds.

    Of course, you may think that you have already done that in many cases. You may believe that you recovered from most of those old injuries and injustices years ago, that your painful or disappointing past experiences no longer affect you, and that may be true. But, for many, there are wounds yet to heal and through this course, we will explore the path to healing...and journey of forgiveness for yourself and your family.

    Your coach for this course, using the book by McNally and Speak, takes you through the process of identifying the key components of your brand, conveying that brand to the world, checking how closely your brand aligns with important relationships in your life - particularly the one with your employer - and assessing your progress along the way. 

    In this course, we will explore:

    • Personal Brand Basics
    • Designing Your Personal Brand of Making a Difference
    • Using the Power of Alignment to Build a Strong Personal Brand

    A Balanced Life is a complete system to help you grow in six areas of life. Over the coming weeks, you will move through six courses which help you learn about yourself, your life, and create plans to how to build a balanced life worth living. These six courses include:

    The Now Habit

    Procrastination is a habit you develop to cope with anxiety about starting or completing a task. It is your attempted solution to cope with tasks that are boring or overwhelming. 

    In this course we will explore habits to lower your anxiety, fears, and self-doubts so you can stop using procrastination as an escape. When you learn to work efficiently - in the Flow State or Zone, using more of your brain-cell power, you have less reason to avoid important, top-priority tasks.

    The Now Habit frees you of shame and blame and moves you to a leadership perspective in your life. From this awakened sense of a larger, stronger self, you are free of the inner conflict between the inner voices of "you have to" versus, "but I don't want to". You begin to live your life from choice - a leadership function of your higher, human brain and your new identity as a producer.


    Breaking the Bonds of Codependency

    Healthy relationships are an important part of a balanced life. Unfortunately, often through the lens of “love and support” we create relationships that are unhealthy and codependent. The downward spiral of excessive emotional or psychological reliance on a partner, typically a partner who requires support due to an illness or addiction, becomes the defining mode of the relationship.


    In the course, we will be exploring the issue of codependency and how to build healthy, strong, and mutually validating relationships with those we care for and love. Through the lens of the bestselling book, Codependent No More: How to Stop Controlling Others and Start Caring for Yourself by Melody Beattie, we will unpack the meaning of codependency, who struggles with codependency, and the steps you can take to building self care in relationships.



    Forgiveness

    "We stood around the casket, my brother, my sister, and I, gazing down at what remained of the man whom we had always loved but sometimes hated, whom we tried to respect but for so many years feared and avoided. He barely resembled the formidable giant who wielded so much power over us when we were children. He had been seriously ill for a long, long time.

    I cannot tell you what my brother and sister where thinking as they stood beside me in that dimly lit funeral parlor. I, however, was remembering the man who adored my mother, who would lean over to kiss her outstretched arm while she poured his coffee and played footsie with her under the dinner table. I was thinking about the man who had been a skilled craftsman, an imaginative storyteller, an avid reader, and an exceptional gardener..."

    We have all been hurt. Lingering in the cobwebbed recesses of our mind is at least one memory - but more likely many memories - of parents who expected too much or too little, were overprotective and overbearing, distant and unaffectionate, absent or abusive...

    Yes, we have been hurt. As far back as childhood or as recently as last week, you may have experienced the sting of rejection, ridicule, humiliation, deception, disappointment, or abuse. This course is about healing those wounds.

    Of course, you may think that you have already done that in many cases. You may believe that you recovered from most of those old injuries and injustices years ago, that your painful or disappointing past experiences no longer affect you, and that may be true. But, for many, there are wounds yet to heal and through this course, we will explore the path to healing...and journey of forgiveness for yourself and your family.


    The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom

    In The Four Agreements, we consider an aspect of spirituality by revealing the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. The Four Agreements offers a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love.

    The Four Agreements that will be explored in this course include:

    • Be Impeccable with Your Word
    • Don't Take Anything Personally
    • Don't Make Assumptions
    • Always Do Your Best

    Self-Esteem: Discovering and Maintaining the Value of You

    It's easy to feel good about yourself when life is going well. A promotion at work or a new relationship can do wonders for your self-image. But what happens when things don't go so well? The problem with basin self-worth on life circumstances is that circumstances can change. The good news is that lasting self-esteem has less to do with what's going on in your life, and more to do with how you interpret it.

    Judging and rejecting yourself cause enormous pain. And in the same way that you would favor and protect a physical wound, you find yourself avoiding anything that might aggravate the pain of self-rejection in any way. To avoid more judgments and self-rejection, you erect barriers of defense. Perhaps you blame and get angry, or bury yourself in perfectionistic work. Or you brag. Or you make excuses. Sometimes you cover up the pain with drugs, alcohol, or other self-destructive behaviors.

    This course is about stopping the judgments. It's about healing the old wounds of hurt and self-rejection. How you perceive and feel about yourself can change. And then those perceptions and feelings change, the ripple effect will touch every part of your life with a gradually expanding sense of freedom.

Through the lens of the bestselling book, Codependent No More: How to Stop Controlling Others and Start Caring for Yourself by Melody Beattie, we will unpack the meaning of codependency, who struggles with codependency, and the steps you can take to building self care in relationships.



    Forgiveness

    "We stood around the casket, my brother, my sister, and I, gazing down at what remained of the man whom we had always loved but sometimes hated, whom we tried to respect but for so many years feared and avoided. He barely resembled the formidable giant who wielded so much power over us when we were children. He had been seriously ill for a long, long time.

    I cannot tell you what my brother and sister where thinking as they stood beside me in that dimly lit funeral parlor. I, however, was remembering the man who adored my mother, who would lean over to kiss her outstretched arm while she poured his coffee and played footsie with her under the dinner table. I was thinking about the man who had been a skilled craftsman, an imaginative storyteller, an avid reader, and an exceptional gardener..."

    We have all been hurt. Lingering in the cobwebbed recesses of our mind is at least one memory - but more likely many memories - of parents who expected too much or too little, were overprotective and overbearing, distant and unaffectionate, absent or abusive...

    Yes, we have been hurt. As far back as childhood or as recently as last week, you may have experienced the sting of rejection, ridicule, humiliation, deception, disappointment, or abuse. This course is about healing those wounds.

    Of course, you may think that you have already done that in many cases. You may believe that you recovered from most of those old injuries and injustices years ago, that your painful or disappointing past experiences no longer affect you, and that may be true. But, for many, there are wounds yet to heal and through this course, we will explore the path to healing...and journey of forgiveness for yourself and your family.


    The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom

    In The Four Agreements, we consider an aspect of spirituality by revealing the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. The Four Agreements offers a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love.

    The Four Agreements that will be explored in this course include:

    • Be Impeccable with Your Word
    • Don't Take Anything Personally
    • Don't Make Assumptions
    • Always Do Your Best

    Self-Esteem: Discovering and Maintaining the Value of You

    It's easy to feel good about yourself when life is going well. A promotion at work or a new relationship can do wonders for your self-image. But what happens when things don't go so well? The problem with basin self-worth on life circumstances is that circumstances can change. The good news is that lasting self-esteem has less to do with what's going on in your life, and more to do with how you interpret it.

    Judging and rejecting yourself cause enormous pain. And in the same way that you would favor and protect a physical wound, you find yourself avoiding anything that might aggravate the pain of self-rejection in any way. To avoid more judgments and self-rejection, you erect barriers of defense. Perhaps you blame and get angry, or bury yourself in perfectionistic work. Or you brag. Or you make excuses. Sometimes you cover up the pain with drugs, alcohol, or other self-destructive behaviors.

    This course is about stopping the judgments. It's about healing the old wounds of hurt and self-rejection. How you perceive and feel about yourself can change. And then those perceptions and feelings change, the ripple effect will touch every part of your life with a gradually expanding sense of freedom.


    Brand "You"

    In Brand "You", authors David McNally and Karl D. Speak show that developing a personal brand is not about constructing a contrived image. Rather, it is a process of discovering who you really are and what you aspire to be. 

    The hallmark insight is that the best way to establish a strong and memorable brand is to make a positive difference in the lives of others through making lasting impressions that build trusting relationships.

    Your coach for this course, using the book by McNally and Speak, takes you through the process of identifying the key components of your brand, conveying that brand to the world, checking how closely your brand aligns with important relationships in your life - particularly the one with your employer - and assessing your progress along the way. 

    In this course, we will explore:

    • Personal Brand Basics
    • Designing Your Personal Brand of Making a Difference
    • Using the Power of Alignment to Build a Strong Personal Brand


    A Balanced Life is a complete system to help you grow in six areas of life. Over the coming weeks, you will move through six courses which help you learn about yourself, your life, and create plans to how to build a balanced life worth living. These six courses include:

    The Now Habit

    Procrastination is a habit you develop to cope with anxiety about starting or completing a task. It is your attempted solution to cope with tasks that are boring or overwhelming. 

    In this course we will explore habits to lower your anxiety, fears, and self-doubts so you can stop using procrastination as an escape. When you learn to work efficiently - in the Flow State or Zone, using more of your brain-cell power, you have less reason to avoid important, top-priority tasks.

    The Now Habit frees you of shame and blame and moves you to a leadership perspective in your life. From this awakened sense of a larger, stronger self, you are free of the inner conflict between the inner voices of "you have to" versus, "but I don't want to". You begin to live your life from choice - a leadership function of your higher, human brain and your new identity as a producer.


    Breaking the Bonds of Codependency

    Healthy relationships are an important part of a balanced life. Unfortunately, often through the lens of “love and support” we create relationships that are unhealthy and codependent. The downward spiral of excessive emotional or psychological reliance on a partner, typically a partner who requires support due to an illness or addiction, becomes the defining mode of the relationship.


    In the course, we will be exploring the issue of codependency and how to build healthy, strong, and mutually validating relationships with those we care for and love. Through the lens of the bestselling book, Codependent No More: How to Stop Controlling Others and Start Caring for Yourself by Melody Beattie, we will unpack the meaning of codependency, who struggles with codependency, and the steps you can take to building self care in relationships.

    Self-Esteem: Discovering and Maintaining the Value of You

    It's easy to feel good about yourself when life is going well. A promotion at work or a new relationship can do wonders for your self-image. But what happens when things don't go so well? The problem with basin self-worth on life circumstances is that circumstances can change. The good news is that lasting self-esteem has less to do with what's going on in your life, and more to do with how you interpret it.

    Judging and rejecting yourself cause enormous pain. And in the same way that you would favor and protect a physical wound, you find yourself avoiding anything that might aggravate the pain of self-rejection in any way. To avoid more judgments and self-rejection, you erect barriers of defense. Perhaps you blame and get angry, or bury yourself in perfectionistic work. Or you brag. Or you make excuses. Sometimes you cover up the pain with drugs, alcohol, or other self-destructive behaviors.

    This course is about stopping the judgments. It's about healing the old wounds of hurt and self-rejection. How you perceive and feel about yourself can change. And then those perceptions and feelings change, the ripple effect will touch every part of your life with a gradually expanding sense of freedom.


    Brand "You"

    In Brand "You", authors David McNally and Karl D. Speak show that developing a personal brand is not about constructing a contrived image. Rather, it is a process of discovering who you really are and what you aspire to be. 

    The hallmark insight is that the best way to establish a strong and memorable brand is to make a positive difference in the lives of others through making lasting impressions that build trusting relationships.

    Your coach for this course, using the book by McNally and Speak, takes you through the process of identifying the key components of your brand, conveying that brand to the world, checking how closely your brand aligns with important relationships in your life - particularly the one with your employer - and assessing your progress along the way. 

    In this course, we will explore:

    • Personal Brand Basics
    • Designing Your Personal Brand of Making a Difference
    • Using the Power of Alignment to Build a Strong Personal Brand

    A Balanced Life is a complete system to help you grow in six areas of life. Over the coming weeks, you will move through six courses which help you learn about yourself, your life, and create plans to how to build a balanced life worth living. These six courses include:

    The Now Habit

    Procrastination is a habit you develop to cope with anxiety about starting or completing a task. It is your attempted solution to cope with tasks that are boring or overwhelming. 

    In this course we will explore habits to lower your anxiety, fears, and self-doubts so you can stop using procrastination as an escape. When you learn to work efficiently - in the Flow State or Zone, using more of your brain-cell power, you have less reason to avoid important, top-priority tasks.

    The Now Habit frees you of shame and blame and moves you to a leadership perspective in your life. From this awakened sense of a larger, stronger self, you are free of the inner conflict between the inner voices of "you have to" versus, "but I don't want to". You begin to live your life from choice - a leadership function of your higher, human brain and your new identity as a producer.


    Breaking the Bonds of Codependency

    Healthy relationships are an important part of a balanced life. Unfortunately, often through the lens of “love and support” we create relationships that are unhealthy and codependent. The downward spiral of excessive emotional or psychological reliance on a partner, typically a partner who requires support due to an illness or addiction, becomes the defining mode of the relationship.


    In the course, we will be exploring the issue of codependency and how to build healthy, strong, and mutually validating relationships with those we care for and love. Through the lens of the bestselling book, Codependent No More: How to Stop Controlling Others and Start Caring for Yourself by Melody Beattie, we will unpack the meaning of codependency, who struggles with codependency, and the steps you can take to building self care in relationships.



    Forgiveness

    "We stood around the casket, my brother, my sister, and I, gazing down at what remained of the man whom we had always loved but sometimes hated, whom we tried to respect but for so many years feared and avoided. He barely resembled the formidable giant who wielded so much power over us when we were children. He had been seriously ill for a long, long time.

    I cannot tell you what my brother and sister where thinking as they stood beside me in that dimly lit funeral parlor. I, however, was remembering the man who adored my mother, who would lean over to kiss her outstretched arm while she poured his coffee and played footsie with her under the dinner table. I was thinking about the man who had been a skilled craftsman, an imaginative storyteller, an avid reader, and an exceptional gardener..."

    We have all been hurt. Lingering in the cobwebbed recesses of our mind is at least one memory - but more likely many memories - of parents who expected too much or too little, were overprotective and overbearing, distant and unaffectionate, absent or abusive...

    Yes, we have been hurt. As far back as childhood or as recently as last week, you may have experienced the sting of rejection, ridicule, humiliation, deception, disappointment, or abuse. This course is about healing those wounds.

    Of course, you may think that you have already done that in many cases. You may believe that you recovered from most of those old injuries and injustices years ago, that your painful or disappointing past experiences no longer affect you, and that may be true. But, for many, there are wounds yet to heal and through this course, we will explore the path to healing...and journey of forgiveness for yourself and your family.

    • Personal Brand Basics
    • Designing Your Personal Brand of Making a Difference
    • Using the Power of Alignment to Build a Strong Personal Brand


    A Balanced Life is a complete system to help you grow in six areas of life. Over the coming weeks, you will move through six courses which help you learn about yourself, your life, and create plans to how to build a balanced life worth living. These six courses include:

    The Now Habit

    Procrastination is a habit you develop to cope with anxiety about starting or completing a task. It is your attempted solution to cope with tasks that are boring or overwhelming. 

    In this course we will explore habits to lower your anxiety, fears, and self-doubts so you can stop using procrastination as an escape. When you learn to work efficiently - in the Flow State or Zone, using more of your brain-cell power, you have less reason to avoid important, top-priority tasks.

    The Now Habit frees you of shame and blame and moves you to a leadership perspective in your life. From this awakened sense of a larger, stronger self, you are free of the inner conflict between the inner voices of "you have to" versus, "but I don't want to". You begin to live your life from choice - a leadership function of your higher, human brain and your new identity as a producer.


    Breaking the Bonds of Codependency

    Healthy relationships are an important part of a balanced life. Unfortunately, often through the lens of “love and support” we create relationships that are unhealthy and codependent. The downward spiral of excessive emotional or psychological reliance on a partner, typically a partner who requires support due to an illness or addiction, becomes the defining mode of the relationship.


    In the course, we will be exploring the issue of codependency and how to build healthy, strong, and mutually validating relationships with those we care for and love. Through the lens of the bestselling book, Codependent No More: How to Stop Controlling Others and Start Caring for Yourself by Melody Beattie, we will unpack the meaning of codependency, who struggles with codependency, and the steps you can take to building self care in relationships.



    Forgiveness

    "We stood around the casket, my brother, my sister, and I, gazing down at what remained of the man whom we had always loved but sometimes hated, whom we tried to respect but for so many years feared and avoided. He barely resembled the formidable giant who wielded so much power over us when we were children. He had been seriously ill for a long, long time.

    I cannot tell you what my brother and sister where thinking as they stood beside me in that dimly lit funeral parlor. I, however, was remembering the man who adored my mother, who would lean over to kiss her outstretched arm while she poured his coffee and played footsie with her under the dinner table. I was thinking about the man who had been a skilled craftsman, an imaginative storyteller, an avid reader, and an exceptional gardener..."

    We have all been hurt. Lingering in the cobwebbed recesses of our mind is at least one memory - but more likely many memories - of parents who expected too much or too little, were overprotective and overbearing, distant and unaffectionate, absent or abusive...

    Yes, we have been hurt. As far back as childhood or as recently as last week, you may have experienced the sting of rejection, ridicule, humiliation, deception, disappointment, or abuse. This course is about healing those wounds.

    Of course, you may think that you have already done that in many cases. You may believe that you recovered from most of those old injuries and injustices years ago, that your painful or disappointing past experiences no longer affect you, and that may be true. But, for many, there are wounds yet to heal and through this course, we will explore the path to healing...and journey of forgiveness for yourself and your family.


    The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom

    In The Four Agreements, we consider an aspect of spirituality by revealing the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. The Four Agreements offers a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love.

    The Four Agreements that will be explored in this course include:

    • Be Impeccable with Your Word
    • Don't Take Anything Personally
    • Don't Make Assumptions
    • Always Do Your Best

    Self-Esteem: Discovering and Maintaining the Value of You

    It's easy to feel good about yourself when life is going well. A promotion at work or a new relationship can do wonders for your self-image. But what happens when things don't go so well? The problem with basin self-worth on life circumstances is that circumstances can change. The good news is that lasting self-esteem has less to do with what's going on in your life, and more to do with how you interpret it.

    Judging and rejecting yourself cause enormous pain. And in the same way that you would favor and protect a physical wound, you find yourself avoiding anything that might aggravate the pain of self-rejection in any way. To avoid more judgments and self-rejection, you erect barriers of defense. Perhaps you blame and get angry, or bury yourself in perfectionistic work. Or you brag. Or you make excuses. Sometimes you cover up the pain with drugs, alcohol, or other self-destructive behaviors.

    This course is about stopping the judgments. It's about healing the old wounds of hurt and self-rejection. How you perceive and feel about yourself can change. And then those perceptions and feelings change, the ripple effect will touch every part of your life with a gradually expanding sense of freedom.


    Brand "You"

    In Brand "You", authors David McNally and Karl D. Speak show that developing a personal brand is not about constructing a contrived image. Rather, it is a process of discovering who you really are and what you aspire to be. 

    The hallmark insight is that the best way to establish a strong and memorable brand is to make a positive difference in the lives of others through making lasting impressions that build trusting relationships.

    Your coach for this course, using the book by McNally and Speak, takes you through the process of identifying the key components of your brand, conveying that brand to the world, checking how closely your brand aligns with important relationships in your life - particularly the one with your employer - and assessing your progress along the way.

You begin to live your life from choice - a leadership function of your higher, human brain and your new identity as a producer.


    Breaking the Bonds of Codependency

    Healthy relationships are an important part of a balanced life. Unfortunately, often through the lens of “love and support” we create relationships that are unhealthy and codependent. The downward spiral of excessive emotional or psychological reliance on a partner, typically a partner who requires support due to an illness or addiction, becomes the defining mode of the relationship.


    In the course, we will be exploring the issue of codependency and how to build healthy, strong, and mutually validating relationships with those we care for and love. Through the lens of the bestselling book, Codependent No More: How to Stop Controlling Others and Start Caring for Yourself by Melody Beattie, we will unpack the meaning of codependency, who struggles with codependency, and the steps you can take to building self care in relationships.



    Forgiveness

    "We stood around the casket, my brother, my sister, and I, gazing down at what remained of the man whom we had always loved but sometimes hated, whom we tried to respect but for so many years feared and avoided. He barely resembled the formidable giant who wielded so much power over us when we were children. He had been seriously ill for a long, long time.

    I cannot tell you what my brother and sister where thinking as they stood beside me in that dimly lit funeral parlor. I, however, was remembering the man who adored my mother, who would lean over to kiss her outstretched arm while she poured his coffee and played footsie with her under the dinner table. I was thinking about the man who had been a skilled craftsman, an imaginative storyteller, an avid reader, and an exceptional gardener..."

    We have all been hurt. Lingering in the cobwebbed recesses of our mind is at least one memory - but more likely many memories - of parents who expected too much or too little, were overprotective and overbearing, distant and unaffectionate, absent or abusive...

    Yes, we have been hurt. As far back as childhood or as recently as last week, you may have experienced the sting of rejection, ridicule, humiliation, deception, disappointment, or abuse. This course is about healing those wounds.

    Of course, you may think that you have already done that in many cases. You may believe that you recovered from most of those old injuries and injustices years ago, that your painful or disappointing past experiences no longer affect you, and that may be true. But, for many, there are wounds yet to heal and through this course, we will explore the path to healing...and journey of forgiveness for yourself and your family.


    The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom

    In The Four Agreements, we consider an aspect of spirituality by revealing the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. The Four Agreements offers a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love.

    The Four Agreements that will be explored in this course include:

    • Be Impeccable with Your Word
    • Don't Take Anything Personally
    • Don't Make Assumptions
    • Always Do Your Best

    Self-Esteem: Discovering and Maintaining the Value of You

    It's easy to feel good about yourself when life is going well. A promotion at work or a new relationship can do wonders for your self-image. But what happens when things don't go so well? The problem with basin self-worth on life circumstances is that circumstances can change. The good news is that lasting self-esteem has less to do with what's going on in your life, and more to do with how you interpret it.

    Judging and rejecting yourself cause enormous pain. And in the same way that you would favor and protect a physical wound, you find yourself avoiding anything that might aggravate the pain of self-rejection in any way. To avoid more judgments and self-rejection, you erect barriers of defense. Perhaps you blame and get angry, or bury yourself in perfectionistic work. Or you brag. Or you make excuses. Sometimes you cover up the pain with drugs, alcohol, or other self-destructive behaviors.

    This course is about stopping the judgments. It's about healing the old wounds of hurt and self-rejection. How you perceive and feel about yourself can change. And then those perceptions and feelings change, the ripple effect will touch every part of your life with a gradually expanding sense of freedom.


    Brand "You"

    In Brand "You", authors David McNally and Karl D. Speak show that developing a personal brand is not about constructing a contrived image. Rather, it is a process of discovering who you really are and what you aspire to be. 

    The hallmark insight is that the best way to establish a strong and memorable brand is to make a positive difference in the lives of others through making lasting impressions that build trusting relationships.

    Your coach for this course, using the book by McNally and Speak, takes you through the process of identifying the key components of your brand, conveying that brand to the world, checking how closely your brand aligns with important relationships in your life - particularly the one with your employer - and assessing your progress along the way. 

    In this course, we will explore:

    • Personal Brand Basics
    • Designing Your Personal Brand of Making a Difference
    • Using the Power of Alignment to Build a Strong Personal Brand
