Workshop - Powerful tools for transforming stress!

Stress is our response to the events of life.  Stress can be experienced as physical tension or as an emotion, such as fear, frustration or anger.  While some stress can be positive, it can also be harmful and even debilitating.  As we know, stress is linked to many physical and emotional problems and disorders.  Knowing how to change our response to life’s events is important.

 While stress can be triggered by a variety of external and internal events, the primary cause is cognitive or ideational in nature.  It is our interpretation of the events of life that matters and that determines the level of stress that we experience.  It is how we perceive or the meaning that we give to the events that happen that will determine our response and stress level.

In this workshop I will discuss specific and practical tools that will help you to transform your experience of stress.  The goal of this workshop is to have participants leave with a health plan that will enable them to effectively live life stress free.  The workshop will utilize a variety of techniques including NLP, hypnosis, music and sound therapy, meditation and cognitive restructuring.

This workshop will be scheduled for November 16, 2019 from 1 to 3 pm at the Center in North Miami.

What we believe about addiction matters.

Some individuals in recovery, in AA and NA, believe that you are not responsible for your addiction to drugs and alcohol. They also tend to believe that you did not choose your addiction. These same individuals also believe that you are powerless when it comes to your addiction. These same individuals believe further that life is happening at you and all you can do is manage it to the best of your ability. While difficult to express, it is believed that you are a victim.

Transformation believes that you are completely responsible for your addiction to drugs and alcohol. Transformation also believes that you choose your addiction by virtue of the thoughts and beliefs that you created. Transformation also believes that you have the power to change your life and end your addiction forever. Transformation believes that you are cause of your life and not the effect of life, not a victim.

The so-called philosophy of the recovery movement and that of transformation are different and in some ways diametrically opposed to each other. The bottom line is that you have to choose which philosophy you want to use to help you with your substance abuse issues and life in general. Your choice of which to believe and use will have clear implications and consequences for you and your life.
