True Self Esteem – A Course in 4 Sessions

Mondays & Wednesdays – December 6, 8, 13, 15 from 6:30 – 8:00 pm CST.

True Self Esteem is our natural state of being.  It comes from living “from the inside out” and using our inner qualities to navigate through life.  When we do this, we are not dependent on our successes and accomplishments or what other people think of us in order to feel validated. 

Low self esteem is an acquired consciousness that happens when we lose spiritual energy and respond negatively to life.  We each have the qualities needed to develop true self-esteem.  This course will help us find and remove blocks to our self esteem so that we can be fully happy again.

Sowing Seeds of Wellness

Oct 24 from 7 PM to 8:15 PM @ 737 W Belmont Ave.

The mind is like a garden, and thoughts are like seeds. Just as the beauty of a garden depends on the quality and type of seeds that we sow in it, the beauty of the mind depends on the quality and type of thoughts that we create in it. This session will provide an opportunity to learn the subtle yet amazing art of growing a beautifully manicured garden within your mind.

Meditation for Beginners

8 sessions (Mondays and Wednesdays) from 6.30 PM – 8 PM @ 737 W Belmont Ave.

Living Life to the Fullest

Saturday, August 24 from 2 PM to 3.30 PM.

Do you sometimes feel like you are not living life to the fullest? Deep inside, do you feel that something is missing? This happens because we are habituated to holding on to past emotions, playing the memories again and again. As a result, we have forgotten how to live in the present moment. Happiness and love are not dependent on who we are or what we have; they depend on what we think. Once we realize this, we can live our lives more meaningfully and inspire others.

Join us to learn what it takes to create a life of your choice, a life where you can be content with yourself. This is a free event and light refreshments are provided.
