Painting a New Canvas

This workshop was specifically designed to provide a safe haven for individuals to begin a journey of self-awareness, growth, and transition. It is dedicated to facilitating the discovery, confrontation, examination, and resolution of those issues that interfere with fulfillment of an individual's potential and spirit. It is intended to be the springboard for a personal reclaiming or reawakening of what one might have left behind. The occasion would also provide a framework to develop and sustain learning opportunities that would assist each participant in contributing, not only to their own personal growth, but to becoming a more valuable asset to their communities as well. (for groups of 10 or less - Fall option)

The course explores topics such as:
  • assessing one's personal temperament
  • identifying personal needs that have been ignored and forgotten
  • wellness of body, mind, and spirit
  • venturing into and interacting with groups of dissimilar cultures or value systems
  • making sense of rapid changes in the environment in which one lives.

Individual and Group Coaching

ďIt is easy to be the person you have always been, for it requires no change, no self-reflection, and no growth. It may appear that changing yourself requires giving up something. In reality there is no need to give up anything Ė you simply add to what has been."
Taro Gold in Open Your Mind, Open Your Life

General Coaching Philosophy

This is a good description of the process of coaching. Coaching is about choosing to add to what has been, to grow, to reflect and eventually, through oneís development, to inspire, to lead, to develop and to be an agent of change for oneself, oneís community or oneís organization. Contact us to learn more about individual and group coaching and the numerous coaching personalities that we can offer.

Couple's Communication

  • Itís not about counseling, itís about connecting.

  • Itís not about fixing, itís about finding. 

  • Gain new insights into the mystery and art of authentic, intimate conversation Ė even if you can only give it ten minutes a day.

  • Learn what makes you tick, what makes your partner tick, and why you both get ticked off - more importantly what to do about it.

  • Practice simple ways to ask for what you want and need with the best possible chance of getting it.

Make an investment in your most important lifetime relationship!

This retreat has been scheduled at the request of many people who have been participants in Greystone's Leadership workshops, which includes an entire module on Temperament.    When they completed this module they recognized how valuable this information is to their life, at work and at home.   For that reason and at their request, we have agreed to make it available to couples and now we have a firm date and place.

 

We will get together briefly on Friday night, have breakfast in the morning and spend an entire day devoted to opening the lines of communications, with fun exercises and discussions.  We will have a brief evening session after dinner and again on Sunday morning.  If you choose to spend the rest of the day in this setting, there are bikes at your disposal for use on a terrific bike trail just down the road, and water activities of all kinds, including a pool on the premises.  

 

The workshop is for anyone who feels the needs for a get-away weekend and appreciates the importance of good communications in their marriage and family. You will take home information that will be helpful in dealing with your children, your mother, your siblings and anyone else with whom  you need to connect.
