Our upcoming class in the series (June 1st):  

Think about your most prevalent thoughts regarding money.

From 0-100% what percentage of time are you generally moving TOWARD financial abundance?
For example, focusing on building a successful career, investing, saving, etc.
Write down that number.

Now, from 0-100% what percentage of time are you moving AWAY from financial fears?
For example, unease about your job, concern over inadequate financial resources, and worrying about expenses.
Write down that number.

Which one are you doing more – moving towards, or running away?
Creating a successful future by following your action plan, or are you worrying more about failure?

What if your ease of success and happiness is directly related to those numbers?

If you want to change this, join us THIS Sunday June 1st at noon at the Mack Auditorium in Renown Medical in the heart of Reno!

CSC Specialty Program Overview:

What if the most significant circumstances of your life are etched in your body?

Our body is more than just a physical and emotional form that encapsulates and defines us.  Beneath all of it is an untapped wealth of insight, peace, and our most powerful resources.  Our unconscious minds record every experience we have had, and our body often reflects the most significant of these.  Understand these echoes of the past, and you begin to understand the language of the body.

Fear and doubt can grip our bodies and minds during the earliest and most vulnerable moments of life.  This disturbance can generate unacknowledged anxiety that can impede our ability to rest comfortably in our bodies and limit us in accomplishing our goals.  We will uncover the empowering qualities of our true nature, and how we can unwind the unconscious limiting patterns that appear to make up our identity.

It is the purpose of this five-part, 25 hour class to introduce Characterological patterns and how to transform them into rich and powerful resources.  Character Structure was originally described by psychiatrist Wilhelm Reich in his ground-breaking book, Character Analysis.  It provides a system that penetrates and assesses the patterns that encumber our hearts and inhibit our optimal success.  It teaches us how to identify and address the patterns expressing in our human forms, allowing us to release the underlying limiting beliefs that caused them.

Our study of Character Analysis reveals how we were wounded in our core belief system, and how we can transform the unconscious limiting patterns that keep us from manifesting our heart’s desire.
