The LIFE Seminars offer in-depth,  thought provoking and life changing courses in areas from parenting, couple’s courses, Pro-D days or LIFE in the workplace.

The larger parenting courses: Sidestepping the Power Struggle and The Parent Child Connection teach parents the A to Z’s about parenting or working with children of all ages.  It is desirable for parents to take both the courses and it doesn’t matter which one you take first.  Just make it work for your schedule.  Parenting Teens and Parenting Preschoolers are just condensed for those age groups.  Better to take the longer courses if you can.

Mad Love is a couple’s course that invites adults in committed relationships to go deeper by creating safety and trust through effective communication, healthy boundaries and awareness of harmful relationship patterns.

How you Speak is How you Exist  This course is for professionals who want to improve their effectiveness in leading individuals and groups.  How do you work with difficult behaviors?  Can you pull out ideas and insight from your co-workers or clients without taking on all their responsibility?  What do your words represent about you?  Do you have a structure for resolving conflict in place?
