Making the Impossible Possible: Using More of Your Brain

At times life-challenges can seem impossible to resolve. Yet somehow we get through them and discover resources we didn’t know we had. With a childlike sense of wonder we learn to enjoy solving puzzles, going from not-knowing to knowing, and finding a wonder-full surprise. You’ll come to realize that your unconscious mind can work on your issues while you sleep or play and can reach conclusions and solutions that your conscious mind becomes aware of at the right time. When you access more of your brain you learn to make the seemly impossible, possible.

Igniting Your Passion: Awaken Your Relationship

Issues with work, your home, your relatives, and the kids can cause you and your partner to drift apart. You want more intimacy, communication, and passion in your relationship. You’ve read about how to rekindle desire in your marriage but you can’t seem to get started. Let’s explore how you can re-ignite feelings of warmth and love in your relationship. What are the 5 things your partner could do or say that would make you feel more loved, respected and heard? How will you ask for some small sign of affection that you’d like to receive from your partner? What change in your attitude will shock your partner into breaking free of old patterns? We’ll apply what I learned teaching engineers how to communicate on the job and with their spouses at home. Learn why arguing causes resentment and destroys intimacy; why skin-on-skin touch is essential to stress reduction and the sparking of passion; why Tantric sex, Dance, and Kegel exercises are so hot?; and how a healthy diet helps ignite passion.

Take Charge of Your Habits: Replace Reactions with Choice

Old, negative habits are like defaults or favorites on your computer: they come to your mind because you go to them most frequently when under pressure. Learning to replace these negative re-actions with healthy choices puts you in charge of your life, your diet, and your goals. Taking charge of your habits gives you more alternatives and greater freedom to live a more fulfilling and spontaneous life. We’ll explore the research on effective habit change, long-term maintenance of healthy habits, and how to apply it to your life.
