"Peace of Mind Fast Track - How to Be Calmer When Others Are Not"

Stacks Image 3179
Wednesday, July 15, 2015
7:00 to 9:00 pm
Facilitated by: Martha Creek

This workshop will be held at Unity Northwest Church. No registration is required.

Calmer people follow an inner compass. They are guided by their own clear and coherent beliefs, principles and life goals. They take responsibility for self. They are aware of their own feelings, and neither blame others for them nor require others to share those feelings. They ask themselves regularly “What can I learn from this situation?”

They respond to anxiety. They anticipate and recognize heightened anxiety (due to change, loss, crisis, etc.) and accept periods of tension as they address issues and complete tasks.

They challenge themselves and others. They allow persons to work through times of stress or pain. They tolerate the discomfort that can go along with the stresses and strains of both significant mission and individual growth.

They respect boundaries. They recognize and respect where one person ends and another begins. Agreed upon roles, structures and procedures are respected. Individual thoughts and feelings are respected. There is little pressure to “Go Along” with the group.

They stay in contact. They resist tendencies to distance or cut off from those with whom there is disagreement. They work together for a sufficient amount of time to maintain relationships.

A free-will offering will be taken.  For more information on this class, please call 847-297-0997
