Refilling Your Well-Wellness Center LLC Presents a 10 week Course into: The Presence Process, offered by Robin White

I’m excited to be offering you a 10 week workshop based on Compassionate communication, Psychosynthesis and The Presence Process by Michael Brown. If you have attended an Empathy Café in the past this is a great opportunity to practice self empathy and connection, “What are your feelings pointing to for needs met or unmet.”

If you would like to be able to respond in life instead of reacting, this is the course for you. I will simple offer an experiential practice each week based on a weekly meditation. No prior experience is necessary; just a deep longing to know yourself better and your relationships better.

In reality, relationships are really about you, no matter what type of relationship it is. They’re meant to be mirrors for us, always reflecting back what we need to see. The question is: Are you willing to look in this mirror and be open to what you need to learn, or will you simply pretend it’s not there and pass it by? As we develop and evolve, our personas also change along the way, and we often put on imaginary masks for protection. Thus, this process of looking in the mirror becomes even more important so that you can recognize who you are, and like who you are.

Engaging Life:
Living Well With Chronic Illness

In Engaging Life: Living Well With Chronic Illness, Dorothy Firman, Ed.D. discusses harnessing a patient’s inherent strengths—an often overlooked, but vitally important, resource—in order to help the patient deal with chronic illness. Dr. Firman’s book reflects the depth and breadth of her knowledge and experience in this area and is written to be a valuable resource for the doctor, the patient, and anyone working with them.
            This is an important work that, I believe, should be read by all patients dealing with chronic illness, as well as by the medical professionals who aspire to provide the most comprehensive care possible.
            Well done, Dr. Firman! And, thank you.
            Jill E. Becker, MD
