This Thursday class begins.
I am truly excited for my 7th wellness class to begin this Thursday. (See events). Every time I have the fortune to do one of the classes, I have learned so much from the participants. They always bring something new to the group and inevitably I end up using it for the next class.
I always begin each class, by explaining that I am not trained by Don Ruiz for "The Four Agreements" or by John Kabbat Zinn for Mindfulness. What I do explain, is that by my practicing and teaching these two tools, they have been the catalyst for my personal recovery. I use them everyday and they are essential for my wellness. Thanks to Aurora Mental Health Center, CHARG, and Aurora Strong Resiliency Center I have been able to share these tools with others. These classes or groups are not for everyone. However, the transformation that I have witnessed in individuals has motivated me to continue to offer these classes for free.
What I share, is my perspective on how to utilize these tools from a life filled with challenges and tragedy. These tools prevent me from reacting to negative circumstances and creating immediate drama in my life. Also, they help me focus on being in the present without judgment and aid me from the pitfalls of negative self talk. Add that, to the process of going through "The Four Agreements" by Don Ruiz and I have brought joy and love into my life.
