Winter spring classes  

Active individuals know how to build their own playbook for aging well. A full, vibrant and independent life requires good health, physical and mental. Staying vital and connected supports designing a purposeful life. Change Yourself, Change Your Life provides a comprehensive approach to living a meaningful life in an immersive three-day workshop with five programs covering each of the Five Healths in your life: physical, mind, relationship, career, and finance. Each program includes applied Qigong & meditation practices that bring the concepts of Five Elements to life in a highly interactive, enjoyable and thought-provoking experience.



Ultimate Mind Health Program
Are you the driver of your mind or is your mind the driver of your life? If you are not in control of your mind then it may be difficult to manifest what you want in your life. The mind consists of mental states that may be fully conscious or unconscious: it includes all your intellectual capabilities, intuition, emotions, beliefs and attitudes. The purpose of the Ultimate Mind Health program is to integrate all of these various mental states into one effective, well-functioning whole. Based on the ancient Five Elements paradigm, this section will provide you with tools to help you tap into the potential of your mind, cultivate intuition and enhance your mind-body connection. As you become mindful of how your thought patterns and mental state have influenced your life, you can use your new understanding and mastery to achieve a more fulfilling lifestyle. We will also provide you with skills for reducing stress, increasing concentration and improving mental and emotional well-being so that you can enjoy moving forward with better clarity, calm and effectiveness.

Ultimate Relationship Health Program
Relationships are essential for personal growth, health and a truly joyful life. The Ultimate Relationship Health Program will help you discover your own Element Personality and show how a thorough understanding of different types of elemental personalities can support your own ability to cultivate unconditional love and acceptance. This section will supply you with tools for clear communication, transforming common issues between people, and overcome any issues you may have with trust. You will consider your own friendships, intimate relationships and relationships at work. You will learn how to make use of the Five Elements Paradigm to interact with others and manage conflicts effectively and compassionate with insights and confidence in your ability to create fulfilling relationships.

Ultimate Financial Health Program
Healthy finances give you the freedom to enjoy the lifestyle you want to lead and the ability to share your good fortune with others. The Ultimate Financial Health Program will coach you in the attributes of your personal Element in order to help you understand how your Element relates to money and financial matters. You will learn and cultivate the spiritual laws of abundance that will draw positive energy into  your life, develop good financial practices and habits and apply the power of sharing as important parts of an overall wellness strategy. You will receive tools to help you measure your financial fitness, clarify your financial goals, and develop a strategy for achieving your financial dreams. This section will start you taking steps towards your financial wellness.

Ultimate Work/Career Health Program
Everyone has a gift. When you discover your personal gift, you will be able to spend the rest of your life sharing it with others. This fundamental principle of the Ultimate Work/Career Health Program will help you see that your work is the daily spiritual expression of your being and of your life purpose. We will help you discover your own natural gifts, abilities and passions based upon a deeper understanding of your personal Element and help you evaluate whether your current path is leading you to an ultimate expression of yourself.  You will determine what is important to you, including a lifestyle and work environment and then show you how to find opportunities that will help you actualize your full potential. You will complete this section with a specific action plan, including tangible next steps that you can take in order to find work that you love… that is aligned with your Life purpose.

Ultimate Physical health program
Physical well-being affects every facet of your life. Your quality of life is in direct proportion to the level of your physical health. The Ultimate Physical Health Program will lead you on an exploration of a new paradigm of self-care in which you learn about your personal Element, your corresponding constitutional strengths and weaknesses and how to prevent and lower your risk of common predisposed illnesses. You will learn about diet and nutrition that is specific to your personal Element and explore Chinese herbal formulas that are customized for you. You will discover how everyday choices affect your well-being and happiness and identify actions that boost your immune system and increase your energy, vitality and lifespan. We will teach you specific chi gong practices to optimize your Element health and show you how to release stress and sleep better. You will complete this section with a personalized plan and goals that are both life affirming and health giving.
