Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
THERE IS A BETTER WAY... Are you tired of living with anxiety, depression, anger, pain, loneliness, fear, confusion, guilt, or shame?  Do you feel hopeless at times?  Did you know that any emotion (even the one that feels worst) lasts only a few moments and passes?  We continue to suffer because our mind makes up a story about the emotion and keeps it going.  You've probably heard the expression, pain is unavoidable, but suffering is optional.  This is how that process works.  Our suffering is built by the thoughts we have about painful emotions.  The good news?  We can start to notice what we're doing, and choose a new way of dealing with our pain. When we form new habits, the pain will slowly hold less power over us, and in its place we can cultivate new experiences of relief, peace of mind, satisfaction, happiness, and balance in our lives.  Are you ready to change your thinking?
