Discover how the “open secret” to inner transformation—Ideals and Free Will—can be used to cultivate spiritual awareness and improve well-being. This one-day online workshop will not only help you identify the places in your life where change can be jump-started, but will also provide approaches you can adopt to enhance your self-exploration, no matter what stage of life you may be in. Don’t miss out on your chance to receive a free e-book edition of Mark Thurston’s Willing to Change: The Journey of Personal Transformation!
A large part of the workshop will explore the “core challenges for the Will” in the three phases of life:
- Early adulthood
- The final third of one’s life
Each phase has distinct archetypal issues which provide opportunities for either:
- Falling deeper into old, karmic patterns that lead to dis-ease and dysfunction OR
- Rising up in consciousness through the willingness to become more flexible and open-hearted.
You will leave this workshop with:
- Applicable insights about your own positive history of using the Will to promote health and well-being.
- A new understanding of the journey of life through three phases of adulthood and the archetypal opportunities that are presented by each phase.
- A personal plan for practical steps you can take over the next 30 days to express your own “willingness to change and transform,” promoting enhanced health and well-being in your life.
