Ron Ames, Senior Teacher and Ferris Thompson

11/9/2018 7:00 PM - 11/11/2018 1:00 PM (Friday Evening, Saturday & Sunday)  at  Benedict Canyon Retreat House, (9940 Westwanda Drive, Beverly Hills, 90210) (Map It)

The one constant in our lives is change. How well you navigate change has a direct impact on the degree of well-being, purpose, and satisfaction you experience on a day-to-day basis. If you are considering a big change, or are in one now, or are still feeling the effects of a past change, this intensive workshop will give you the personal understanding and tools to set a well-considered course for the next phase of your life. 

Over the past 25 years, leaders, organizations, and groups have come to use Phillip Moffitt's curriculum for its wisdom, experience, and insight. During this weekend workshop, Senior Teacher Ron Ames and Ferris Thompson will share time-tested mindfulness practices and principles about the nature of change in human lives.

Change naturally brings up concerns, fears, and questions that can lead to confusion, lack of motivation, or poor decisions. In this workshop, you will learn skills and strategies to effectively respond to the challenges of change such as: 

  • Discover which areas of your life need attention, gain insights about your strengths and challenges in dealing with change, and begin to strategize about next steps.
  • Recognize habits of mind that undermine you and learn practices to disengage from their influence. 
  • Identify your values and intentions so you have a basis for making wise decisions. 
  • Receive individualized guidance.
  • Expect a weekend full of dynamic inquiry and the opportunity to learn essential life skills for meeting your changes and transitions with authenticity, confidence, and clarity. 

This class is open to students of all ages.  

Please Note: There will be a 90-minute break for lunch around 12:30 pm on Saturday.  Please bring your own brown bag lunch as there aren't any places nearby to have lunch.

11/9 - Friday Evening - 7pm - 9pm
