Life today can be very overwhelming and doses us with large amounts of anxiety, depression, and negative attitudes. Is this daily experience our choosing, or is there an alternative way of thinking and being? And why is it that we often choose to manifest something other than our full potential? Due to our familiarity of living lesser lives, we experience an inner dissatisfaction.

In this workshop, we will use this dissatisfaction to fuel a process of dismantling the safety net of limited thinking and reassemble a more positive mindset. It is from this more positive framework that we can create more inner happiness and healthier, more compassionate connections with ourselves and others. Discussion of the ten virtues/non-virtues will be included along with the Noble Eightfold Path. Open to all levels.
