Fall Events!

Greetings folks,

I hope you've been able to enjoy a couple days of clearer air in Montana! Wow, what a difference that makes. It makes me super grateful for the clean air and other blessings in my life.

Below are a couple events I have coming up in the next month or so. I'm offering a short series on Monday nights on Mindfulness and Self-awareness. And also, Aimee and I are offering a weekend workshop on Nonviolent Communication specifically focused getting past our differences and connecting in times of some chaos. 

I also am continuing to offer the communication practice group at the Jeannette Rankin Peace Center on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday.

I hope you can join me for one of these events. 

Warm regards - Patrick

Learn to use the power of your mind for mental clarity, calmness, and intentional change. You can shift old habits and patterns working with the power of your subconscious using self-hypnosis techniques, and you can develop the skills of attentional mindfulness to be more in the present in your life and be able to roll through challenging moments of stress, tension or uncertainty. 

This class will focus on learning the mechanics of mindfulness techniques and self-hypnosis techniques so participants can utilize these skills to have more choice in how they respond to the daily flow of life!
