Life is only as good as it feels ...but the emotional quality of our lives seems to be steadily deteriorating because of too much hurrying and worrying. Stress is killing us - and even though we train our intellectual minds, most of us grow up with almost zero emotional guidance, We simply don't know how to manage our minds so as to optimize our emotional experience. What can you do to take charge of your mood swings, actively break free from impatience, anxiety, depression and fatigue, and truly enjoy each new moment? After reviewing the 'quiet your mind' process learned in the first class, this second WizeWell class will teach you 4 new Focus Phrases that aim your attention inward and stimulate deep healing and integration. John will talk about each of the four areas of attitudinal and emotional growth represented by the Emotional Wellbeing Focus Phrases, and help you to use your own power of attention to stimulate inner healing and awakening. And of course there will be group discussion so that everyone who wants to, can express their thoughts and experiences related to this process. For more info, visit: www.breatherbreak.com
We all have a choice as to how we approach the challenges in our lives, whether it's gastroparesis or something else. In this live class, Crystal will discuss how she went from an ill, jobless, depressed newlywed in a rocky relationship to a successful author and health counselor with a happy marriage and baby on the way (all while her challenge -- a gastroparesis diagnosis -- remained the same). More importantly, Crystal will share the most important steps you can take toward making a change in your own life regardless of the challenges you're facing.

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

After growing up on a cattle ranch in California, I went to Princeton for a complete change - and became engrossed in my life study of consciousness - what does it mean to be aware, and how can we manage our own minds to our best advantage? At 66, I'm still busy researching and teaching what I've found to be true about the best ways to run our inner focus of attention. Currently my work centers upon the place where people need the most help - at work. Working with Greg Voisen and WizeWell, I'm delivering a new approach to mind management via short guided Breather Breaks that employees are granted 3-4 times a day, in order to quickly shift out of stress mode into a more relaxed, ceative, productive and enjoyable quality of consciousness. After many years of traveling around the world to deliver corporate and community seminars in person, I'm very pleased that technology has finally reached the point where we can participate in these live interactive online seminars. This is a remarkable expansion of human communication, and I look forward to meeting you in this non-local community, and sharing our understandings of how to maximize our lives each new moment.
