Principles of Clarity (POC) is a 1-day workshop that focuses on improving your relationship with yourself and others, and is based on principles from Mindfulness, Positive Psychology and Cognitive Therapy (as well as Buddhism and Neuroscience). The focus is on how to live a life where our actions are aligned with our core values, get straight to the heart of a matter, identify the issues, discriminate between real threats vs. the “stories” we tell ourselves, move away from “shoulds”, take responsibility for our choices, not go into “victim mentality”, communicate needs effectively, bring love, mindfulness and compassion to all situations, and live wholeheartedly, without apology.

The interactive and playful workshop starts out with a lecture on Mindfulness and Mental Well-being, followed by sections covering different topics about your relationship with yourself and others. Each section starts with the instructor giving a short lecture on the topic, followed by group discussion and exercises. The exercises include private reflection/writing, round table discussion, didactic one-on-one communication with the instructor, and pairing up to practice. By sharing the “stories” we have created for ourselves and others, the goal of the workshop is to challenge/debunk/defuse the limiting thought patterns that do not serve us.

POC Workshop Topics Include:

How do you Talk/Think about Yourself?

Accepting All of You: the Good, Bad and the Ugly

Manifesting What you Want, while Tackling Worry, Doubt and Fear

Practicing Emotional Resilience and Mindfulness

How do you Talk/Think about Others?

Working it Out with Others
