How do things get so out of balance?

  • Many people have unrealistic goals, often driven by the expectations of others.
  • Often people confuse success with the amount of money they have.
  • We often get locked in competition with others without really evaluating our own intentions.
  • Often, we get lost in our minds and forget what lies in our hearts.
  • Many people think they know what the expectations of other are, without actually asking and finding out.
  • We often forget that before we can receive, we must give more from a place of generosity and goodwill.
  • We often get lost in the ideal impressions of life painted by advertisers,television shows, movies, social media and glossy magazines.

“In life, there’s things that are important and things that feel urgent. Most of our attention is drawn to the urgent. Lives falter when the important things become urgent. The only protection we will ever have against such a personal disaster is an ongoing expansion of our awareness. The irony is that most people rarely put time into expanding their awareness because it does not feel urgent to do so.”

The Balancing Act Program

Introduction to the Seminar:

Who is responsible for my life? Me! That is Simple! But am I taking responsibility for my life? The question creates explanations and reasons.

A successful and balanced life is one that is deliberately operated by the individual. Many spend their lives reacting to circumstances, people and events and constantly feel like they are being swept along. Many feel that their life is hard. Others appear to cruise along.

Taking the step up and assuming ownership of one’s life is the first vital step toward gaining balance. From this place, the individual has the opportunity to create a life that works for them.

The Aim of the Seminar:

To teach participants the nature of the journey of life, to understand challenges and to look at how they react to obstacles life appears to ‘throw’ at them. The seminar also seeks to help participants understand the things that take away their ability to make deliberate decisions and stay in control.

Through the program, the participants will get to explore new perspectives that broaden their thinking and their appreciation of their life. They will learn new skills that will enable them to develop the ability to become more contemplative and more present, to be able to evaluate their life progress in alignment with their more important goals.

Seminar Description:

The explores a comparison between modern life and past eras where the focus of attention has shifted from survival to comfort.

It explores how an obsession for accumulating and casing happiness has created never-before-seen stress and anxiety problems.

The program provides strategies for getting life back on track and balanced.
