Laughter is the Best Medicine: Why You Want to Laugh More
  Ever heard that laughter is the best medicine? Laughter is one of the best stress-relievers, and has been shown to improve a variety of health conditions.

All About "Adam": What separates the male psyche from their female counterparts?
  We've all heard about that aptly titled book, Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus! This seminar unpacks and explains that truth by exploring the intricate inner workings of the male brain. Taking fascinating findings from psychological, neurological, and evolutionary research, we will focus on how the male brain looks and functions differently from a female's brain -- and explore what accounts for these differences. Gaining better understanding helps us to navigate and bring the seeming schism of the sexes into balance and synergy. Because let's face it, we may be vastly different, but we all want to live on planet Earth peaceably together!

Excuse Me? Sorry, I Wasn't Listening, Part 2
  More Than Anything Else People Want To Be Heard! They want to be validated!
  Learning about the "gift" of listening will improve all your important relationships because communication is the foundation of every relationship. It involves both speaking and listening. The most important thing is to know when to listen and when to talk. Too many relationships suffer due to a lack of communication. It is possible to restore communication in your marriage, with your children, a family member, or someone at work.

Your Astrological Elements
  What is your temperament according to your birth chart? Are you more fire-like with competitiveness, ambition, drive and impatience? Have a lot of water in your chart making you extra sensitive, intuitive, sentimental and visionary?

Are you a combination of two and wonder why you run "hot and cold." This class will explore your chart in terms of your elemental qualities as well as your primary "mode" of operation (cardinal, fixed or mutable) which translates into "Action-oriented, stubborn or flexible."

Astrology Update: Heliocentric Astrology - What's Your "Earth Sign"?
  Common everyday astrology is known as “geocentric” or “earth-centered” astrology. You likely know you Sun sign (Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, etc.) which is the position of the Sun in the sky when you were born. Geocentric astrology sees things from the viewpoint of Earth as we look up to the Sun. Heliocentric astrology, on the other hand, is “sun-centered” astrology. With Heliocentric Astrology, we look at ourselves from the “higher vantage point” of the Sun and look down on earth. In Heliocentric Astrology, our “Earth sign” is important, and we can use it to understand ourselves, our higher vision and our lives. What is your Earth sign? Come find out!

Break Up with Your Belongings
  We've all been in relationships that came to a point when we knew it was healthy and best to "move on" from and "let go" of them -- this is also true of belongings. Yet many of us find it hard to let go of things even when we know we want to...this is due to emotional attachments formed with objects. This class will help you get clarity on why you are holding on to certain things, as well as help you clarify what to keep, what to donate, what to give away when looking to clear your life of clutter (emotionally and physically).

Meet Your Ego, Know Your Ego, Love Your Ego
  Why learn more about your ego? So you can reach new heights in your life! We all have an ego. It is a necessary and important part of who we are, because it protects us, and motivates us to work hard. By understanding it, though, we can get clearer about why you are not “further” along than you want to be, or following a more inspired path. Sometimes, your ego can skew you towards thinking things that may not be true for you since it operates on fear. When we get to know and love it, we can use it to help us determine what is right for us. Come with an area of life or a situation you'd like to move towards and let's see how we can understand how your ego may have been playing a role in holding you back.
