The Creative Mind and Happiness: Transforming and Healing the Self

Saturday, May 11, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. CT  
TS Members: $35 • Nonmembers: $40

The Creative Mind and Happiness Ronald Alexander 4.13.24For more than 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 and body. This leads to clarity of mind, breakthrough thinking, peak performance, spaciousness of self, greater wisdom, and compassion.

In this workshop, Dr. Ronald Alexander will help you discover how you can unlock your creative self to achieve the clarity and insight to profoundly transform your life. Using methods from mindfulness practices, creative thinking, Ericksonian Mind-Body Healing, Somatic Experiencing, and non-dual teachings, participants will learn skills to calm the mind, develop a mindful brain, regulate their mind/body states, develop trust with their unconscious, and explore inner resources for activating creativity, vitality, and optimal well-being.

We will also explore the release and healing of trauma and afflictive emotions through deep music and guided imagery, natural mind/body healing rhythms, yogic exercises, creative visualizations, and somatic breathing methods.

During this workshop, participants will learn how to:

  • Access the three stages of Core Creativity: Absorbing Mind, Open Mind, and Activating Mind
  • Shift negative belief systems to positive states of creativity, post-traumatic growth, and optimal well-being
  • Make clear and mindful decisions by developing “MindStrength”
  • Explore their natural mind/body healing rhythms for nervous system regulation and trauma healing
  • Understand the neuroscience of a mindful brain: discussing mind, self, mood, dissatisfaction, satisfaction, contentment, and happiness
Registration includes on-demand access to a recording of the program, which can be viewed for two weeks following the program date.
