‘Have a Pleasant Present’

This class is about assisting people in understanding that our own personal belief system and self-talk set us up to perceive the world either negatively or positively. We are influenced and become preconditioned by and through our upbringing and life experiences. As this happens so slowly during our lives, and we become resigned to the “usual outcome”, we are not conscious of the patterns being formed. After resigning ourselves to the “it’s just the way it is” way of life, there is often the onset of depression and anxiety.

    By exploring and learning to recognize our own patterns and triggers as well as recognizing that we can give ourselves options to view situations from different perspectives, we can then be open to make choices that painlessly create new growth and joy.

    During the class, there will be time for personal exploration and sharing of personal experiences by class members. There will be helpful hand outs and the creation of personal flash cards by class members.
