A cohort-based learning community
Meeting Yourself: Building Inner Friendship and a New Relationship to Your Energy is a powerful and life-transforming experiential program that will support and enhance your inner and outer growth process.
The course is designed for adults of any age – from recent college graduates to mid-lifers to retirees. It will help you take a quantum leap in claiming the values that inspire your life and applying those values in your home and work life. You will learn skills and acquire tools to build a more life-affirming relationship to yourself and your energy through greater self-care and inner integration. All of these will enhance personal well-being, equanimity, and compassionate action in your life.
The program is based on the best of transformational psychology along with recent insights from neuroscience and the science of well-being. Through this sequence of face-to-face group sessions, online learning, and personal mentoring, you will be able to deepen your connection with such positive, life-enhancing energies as courage, creativity, vitality, increased will, and wisdom.
This course title gets to the heart of what people most often need to be re-inspired and to feel they have control over their life’s direction – that is, the need for:
- Greater self-awareness
- Clearer insights about how their energy gets blocked and how it can be freed to start flowing freely and creatively
- More clarity and connection to the values that inspire and guide their life
- Deeper appreciation for whole-hearted self-compassion
“The more we can nurture self-awareness and make friends with ourselves, the greater capacity we have for reaching out to others to create and sustain positive relationships.”
Our promise is this: Participation in this program will increase your capacity to share your gifts, talents, and strengths – in both your personal and professional life.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN AND EXPERIENCE
This course is the culmination of many years of development and refinement. The Personal Transformation and Courage Institute (PTCI) began nearly two decades ago in 2000, and each year we update and supplement the learning experiences in our courses. The program draws from the best of transformational psychology, ancient wisdom traditions of mindfulness and consciousness transformation, along with recent insights from neuroscience and the science of well-being.
There are four learning objectives to the six-month course “Meeting Yourself: Building Inner Friendship and a New Relationship to Your Energy.” These goals can be reached and experienced by each participant – each in his or her own unique way. And from nearly twenty years of our working with small groups, we’ve discovered how much transformative change is possible for sincere seekers even in just six months. The learning objectives are:
1. Enhanced self-awareness that leads to attitudinal and emotional healing
2. Renewed meaning in your life
3. Shaping a healthier relationship with yourself
4. Enhanced capacity to live a happy and productive life
The spiritual ideal – finding and then validating what it is for me, which affords me the opportunity to see just how much my ideal is involved in everything I do, how I look at life, how it is the basis for my spirituality and creativity, how I express myself, and how I relate to others. This, above all else that I have experienced in the PTCI classes, has impacted my life the most.
