The Problem is the Path — To Your Fulfillment
I will be starting a four-month, eight-module Healer’s Program on Friday, September 25, 2020. We will meet twice a month in October, November, and December, and conclude on January 8, 2021. (See schedule below.) The program, entitled, The Problem is the Path to Your Fulfillment, focuses on transforming and healing a specific part of your life that currently is fraught with challenge and/or suffering.
Each session will last for about two hours — sometimes two-and-a-half hours. The program will take place over Zoom. I will speak for approximately 60 to 75 minutes; we’ll break up into smaller groups (between 2 and 4 people) via break-out rooms, and then return to discuss the material and the application of the practical tools I presented in my talk.
The sessions will be recorded and made available to participants who cannot make any given module.
I will address the serious challenges and problems that participants in the program currently face, especially those that cause the most distress. Although those problems can vary dramatically, the method by which all our issues are resolved is founded on seven core principles.
They are as follows:
All problems have solutions. If you reject this truth, you will never solve the problem.
Your current ways of thinking and behaving cannot solve the problem. They can only create new versions of the same problem.
There is a more evolved version of you that not only can solve the problem you face, but is the master of many other challenges in your life.
The evolved version of you is ready to emerge. All it needs is for you to create the conditions so that it can arise and address the issues you are facing.
There is a practical step-by-step process that can bring forth the evolved you.
You have help. You are not alone in this struggle. You must learn how to open your mind and heart and allow that help to guide you in your healing process.
Once the evolved version of you emerges, the solution arrives of itself, simply because the evolved you and the answer you seek are resonant with each other. In short, the evolved you finds your current problem easy to solve.
The evolved you not only solves the immediate problem, but also leads you to a much more fulfilling and happier life.
A CORE UNDERSTANDING OF THE PROGRAM — AND OF LIFE
At the center of this program is a core understanding, which is this:
Within every challenge is an implicit demand that we evolve, meaning we must learn new ways of thinking and behaving, and more fundamentally, a new understanding of life.
In the process of facing the challenge honestly and courageously, we come to better understand ourselves. We develop new skills and behaviors.
The person who emerges is a more grounded, more powerful, more resourceful, wiser, more loving, and more deeply connected human being. That evolved being is you — you in the next phase of your evolution.
In this way, every problem offers a path to our growth and evolution.
As I frequently say, the problem you face is not the problem. The real problem is your approach to the problem.
A STEP-BY-STEP APPROACH TO OUR GROWTH
In the first couple of modules, we will learn how to observe our behavior in very distinct ways, and in very specific situations. We will better understand the habitual ways we think and behave — both of which create and sustain our limitations, failures, and suffering.
Seeing these automatic ways of thinking and behaving — and understanding their consequences — are the first steps in deep and lasting transformation.
The program will show you how to change the biochemical processes that sustain your recurring and often self-sabotaging patterns.
I will show you a step-by-step process — one you will find easy to practice between modules — that will allow an underlying intelligence within you to gradually emerge into consciousness and reshape your thinking and behaviors so that a greater and more effective version of you emerges into your life.
In addition, I will offer an integrated approach to the following subject areas, all relevant to the core principles and objectives in the program. Among the additional topics we will address will be:
- Health and healing, prevention and recovery from serious illness, including covid-19.
- An integrated approach to relieving and overcoming stress, fear, excess thinking, anger, and guilt.
- The primacy of the mind over the body in all forms of healing, including physical healing, and how we can utilize the power of the mind to facilitate healing.
- An understanding of the inner world that is accessible, practical, and easily facilitates the larger goals of the program. Your spiritual life is central to your health, healing, and fulfillment. It is the true motivational force that drives your evolution and is the true source of your happiness.
