Even though we yearn for more joy and peace in our lives, most of us fixate overmuch on chronic worries and upsetting thoughts that make us feel anxious, unsatisfied, depressed and moody. Recent research based on ancient meditative insights has revealed a new short-form approach to shifting our experience into a brighter, more creative and compassionate mood. Working with several colleagues, Psychologist John Selby, author of "Quiet Your Mind," "Seven Masters, One Path," and "Wisdom, Wellness, & Redefining Work," has recently developed the WizeWell Process for quickly and enjoyably quieting the flow of negative thoughts through your mind, so that you regain your inner center, recover from stress and fatigue, and wake up to your higher potential. In this series of 6 online classes, John will step by step teach you his full method for regaining the present moment and re-activating your full potential. Both at work and at home, you can apply this WizeWell Process whenever needed to brighten your mood, improve your health, boost your performance - and bring more joy and peace to the world. In John's words, "After many years of leading in-person seminars and intensive workshops, I want to explore the potential of these online interactive classes for meditative teaching and experiential sharing. So in these classes, we're going to discover to what extent we can actually experience each other's presence in the group, through focusing our attention together in special directions. "We're going to explore a set of new Focus Phrases that my colleagues and I have been developing for the last decade. Where we focus our attention determines everything that happens in our lives. These coming classes will explore the power of Focus Phrases to aim our attention inward toward what seem to be the core shared spiritual experiences that make us truly human. "At this point in my life, as a psychologist I find these Focus Phrases the most powerful cognitive tools for breaking free from habitual negative mindsets and moods, and releasing our potential for fulfilling our life purpose - and for enjoying each moment of the rest of our lives. I look forward to meeting you online, and exploring this new electronic medium for coming together." For more, visit: www.breatherbreak.com
