Positive Lifestyles

Personal Issues


Deals with the realities that many of us

have been born into. Unfortunately, not many of these 'ways' have been 'our' ways. In this session, we will discuss what we can do to regain our ability to transmit our own culture, language and traditions as well as how to remain focused on these ever important teachings in a "contemporary' world.


WHAT IS WELLNESS? It is a concept, an

attitude, a lifestyle. Many of us live a life of

havoc, chaos and dysfunction and we believe this is "normal." This workshop focuses on relearning, unlearning and reversing the pattern of repeating chronic, often, obsessive behaviors which prevent growth and wellness.

Discussion will encompass taking control of

our own problems as individuals and as

community members.


PARENTING: Many of us don't want to parent

our children exactly how our parents raised

us. Yet, we often hear their voices coming out

of our very own mouths! Together, we will

work on a plan for limits, discipline and

spending on "hip" clothes and "fashionable"



SEXUALITY and TEENS: Encompasses

discussion and awareness of self-control, birth control and decision-making in their lives.

Anonymous questions are encouraged if they

are shy about disclosing sensitive subjects.

Encouragement to say “NO” is examined

through role-playing.


SEXUAL HARASSMENT: In this day and age

of so much sexual exposure it may be, often

times, unclear to many what is appropriate and inappropriate behaviors in the workplace.


This workshop will look at different state and

community codes and laws for sexually

appropriate guidelines and practices in your

particular state and/or county.



people of all ages in becoming comfortable

and knowledgeable about their bodies and

sexuality. Too often, we become sexually

involved with someone before we understand

our limits, likes and dislikes.


STAFF RETREATS: In this full day seminar, we will learn what constitutes a healthy

organization and workplace. We'll discuss how

to communicate ideas and deal with conflicts

in a timely and proactive fashion. We will also

look at examples as to how to make our

workplace an enjoyable, productive place.



North America, we often gather in our

traditional circles, or in much larger

conventions. Many of us would like to address

some issues brought to the floor but may be

unsure of how to address these issues

effectively. Whether you are a novice or

"expert' public speaker, this workshop will

bring you creative ways in which you can

communicate in an empowering, motivating yet respectful manner. We will discuss how to

make our butterflies in our stomach "fly in

formation" so we may bring our message to

our audience in a powerful way.
