Dr. Berger and Herb K. will unpack Core Principles 7 thru 12 of Emotional Sobriety that sustain personal growth, a continuation of the July 24th workshop. This powerful experience will give each participant an opportunity to look at the current quality of life from a fresh perspective and have a new experience. Transformation creates a new attitude and experience towards ourselves, others and Reality. This workshop creates a template for emotional growth helping us: discern and manifest our true self; identify our internal obstacles to joy by practicing these Principles; live with balance, humility and vitality; be the determining force in our own lives and a positive force in our community. Honestly ask yourself: What are the sources of the symptoms of my current suffering?; Do I have a quality life?; Do I have balance?; Do I have a sense of personal value, purpose and meaning? Attendees will experience a process for: Identifying the obstacles to quality living; Holding on to yourself, regaining your balance after you have lost it, discover the path to authentic freedom and happiness; Fostering your life, having personal freedom and VIBRANT relationships.
