Program Description

"If you realize that all things change, there is nothing you will try to hold on to. If you are not afraid of dying, there is nothing you cannot achieve." - Lao Tzu

Studies in the fields of health psychology, neuroscience, somatics, and learned optimism confirm that people can learn to change their thinking as well as moods and behavior in ways that enhance happiness and resiliency. For 2,500 years, the wisdom teachings of the East have utilized what their texts refer to as "skillful methods" for the study and transformation of the mind-body. These meditation and visualization practices help cultivate self-regulation through awareness, concentration, mindfulness, and other attention skills. This leads to clarity of mind, spaciousness of self, and greater compassion.

Using techniques from modern positive psychology, mindfulness practices, neuroscience, somatic experiencing, transformational thinking, and nondual teachings, licensed psychotherapist and author Dr. Ron Alexander, PhD, and Ora Nadrich-the founder of the Institute for Transformational Thinking-will teach skills to calm the mind, develop a mindful brain, and navigate unsupportive thinking habits. You'll reframe negative thoughts, regulate mind-body states, develop trust with the unconscious, and explore inner resources for activating core creativity, vitality, and resilience.

Methods include:

  • Meditating and practicing psychological skills to promote insight as well as create new neural pathways for healthy and creative brain development
  • Exploring natural mind-body healing rhythms (yogic exercises and somatic breathing methods) for nervous system regulation
  • Exploring mindfulness, yogic practice, and somatic experiencing methods for containment and release of painful feeling states
  • Using mindfulness to identify thoughts that are unsupportive or sabotaging of your needs and goals
  • Practicing Transformational Thinking to identify the origin of unsupportive thoughts as well as process and reframe them
  • Discovering practices that promote lovingkindness and self-compassion, or metta
  • Applying Transformational Thinking to align the thinking mind with the new actions to be taken for the fulfillment of desires, goals, and dharma.

These skills are especially applicable for both self-healing practices and for healthcare professionals in their work with patients.
