Diffuse Conflict with Compassionate Communication
  Often, in relationships of all kinds, we are faced with challenging and difficult situations and need tools in order to improve our communication with others and strive for mutually-satisfying outcomes. Compassionate Communication, also referred to as Nonviolent Communication, or Collaborative Communication, is a process which focuses on three aspects of communication: (1) empathetic listening; (2) self-empathy; and (3) honest self-expression. The premise of Compassionate Communication is that if people can identify their own unmet needs and the unmet needs of others, and the feelings that surround these needs, that better connections, both to oneself and towards others, can be achieved.
  In practicing the 4-step model of Compassionate Communication, one learns how to:
     *Break patterns of thinking that lead to arguments;
     *Transform conflict into mutually-satisfying outcomes; and
     *Move beyond power struggles to cooperation and trust.
  A commitment to Compassionate Communication and continued practice can lead to feeling much better, both about oneself and others and contribute towards enriched, long-lasting relationships.

Mindfulness Meditation Series
  Very often in our daily life, we become so used to the appearance of objects that we frequently stop really seeing them.

  -Achieve physical relaxation
  -Have more control over thought processes
  -Increase tranquility and the ability to deal with stress
  -Heal, physically and psychologically
  -Have enhanced spiritual development

Masterminding Your Next Reality
  When it comes to getting what we want in life, having a clear focus and unwavering intent are vital keys to attaining our goals. Many of us make individual lists for ourselves and have an idea in our mind about what we are looking for in life, yet neglect to see the source of strength and power that pooling those visions with other people can promote. Join us for this informative session, showing how sharing a defined focus of intent for ourselves, as well as holding each others’ visions of success in a safe place, can become a collective force for manifestation and empowerment. Let’s come together to mold our own masterminds for your next reality, then celebrate by sharing this new knowledge with others in support.

Your Handwriting Suits You to a "t": A Person's Handwriting Reveals How One Thinks, Acts, & is Likely to Behave
  To a Graphoanalyst (scientific handwriting expert) the letter “t” is the most important letter in the alphabet because it indicates many important personality traits. The t-crossings tell us about motivation level, self-direction, or possible leadership ability. We look at the “t” crossing, the stem, the pressure, and the length of the crossing. Each habitual stroke in our handwriting means something, and helps us to better understand ourselves and others.
  To know oneself is to be able to use one’s capabilities to the best of advantage. To know others is to understand them and to be able to work or live with them. Many heartaches could be avoided if one person understood another. Many marriages could be saved, vocational situations improved, and many children would develop to their full potentialities were they completely understood and carefully guided.

Ask the Questions to Fulfill Your Life's Dreams
  It’s easy to forget that the life we are living now is the result of decisions we made yesterday, last month and last year. We don’t gain 20 pounds because of one decadent night, nor do we find ourselves in debt because we made one bad purchase. Even relationships don’t end because of one fight. It’s the choices that we made along the way that lead us to our destination. This class will go over the questions to ask yourself that will dramatically enhance your awareness about the choices you make in each moment. If you want your life to be different, we must stop making choices based on comfort, fear, habit, or even laziness. This class will give you the questions you can ask yourself to reveal your motivating actions. Clarify your thoughts and direct yourself towards a better tomorrow.

Astrology Update: Use Astrology to Get What You Want From Others
  What is something you might want from others? More openness? Balance? Trust? Commitment? Truth? By understanding the other persons astrological nature, even if only their Sun sign, you can gain a greater understanding of your boss, partner, child, spouse or co-worker and relate to them better. If they have Capricorn energy, understand that they may respond better with logic, facts and not a lot of frill. If they have Cancer energy, they need to know you care. Someone who has Aries energy needs to know you are confident and know how to lead. Come and gain insight into the different signs and meet people where they are at. Accept them and talk to them in their “language” and they will open up in new ways. Understand their downside and love them for who they are, not who you want them to be.

Optimize Your Life: Tips & Tools to Maximize Your Time
  Do you ever feel like there is just not enough time to do everything that you want to, and "have to" do? Does your life feel like a never-ending blur of to-do lists, emails, events, commitments, and obligations? Do you ever worry that time is racing by so quickly that you are missing out on quality time with your friends, family, and yourself?
  If so, you're certainly not alone. In this day and age, most of us are familiar with that frazzled feeling of being overworked and overwhelmed. We are busier than ever and yet we find ourselves struggling to find the time to do the things that will help move us to our bigger goals, dreams, and life vision. We tell ourselves that we will start pursuing our dreams "when life settles down", but that day never seems to come. It's time for a shift!

Forgetful? How to Get Back Your Memory!
  Join us as Dalybeth Reasoner, professor of Psychology at UH and other universities (including Happiness University!) shares all the latest information about memory. Memory makes us. It is a complex, brain-wide process that is essential to who we are, and we have short-term memory and long-term memory. Without the two functions of our brain, we wouldn't be able to recall the who, what where and when of our everyday lives, and we would never be able to manage. Since recorded history, humans have tried to understand what memory is, how it works, and why it goes wrong. Dalybeth will shed light about memory and how, by understanding better what it is, and how technology is coming into play, we can better utilize and live our lives with more awareness.
