| KEYS TO HAPPINESS AND HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS |
Vitality Center regularly sponsors unique twelve-session workshops for women, Keys to Happiness and Healthy Relationships, twice annually, in the fall and winter. This progressive series of weekly sessions will teach you to effectively set boundaries, improve relationships, and handle anger, rejection, anxiety, shame, intimacy, unmet expectations, and more.
• Do you keep having the same problems with different people?
• Do you feel guilty when you stand up for yourself?
• Are you constantly trying to solve everyone else's problems
so they'll be happy?
• Does expressing/receiving anger frighten you?
• Would you like to have better relationships with your spouse,
co-workers, and friends?
If you've answered "Yes" to any of these questions, this 12-week workshop can help you lead a happier life and have healthier relationships with your significant other, friends, co-workers, and loved ones. You'll learn what has been robbing you of happiness and healthy relationships-and why.
In mid-January and early September, this progressive series of twelve weekly two-hour sessions will begin in Elko. The workshops are led by Kristi Lyn Glass, who developed the workshop curriculum. These workshops will help you understand your relationship history, improve your communications, effectively set boundaries, and better handle anger, unmet expectations, criticism, intimacy, and more. The workshops will benefit individuals who want to make significant positive changes in their lives and relationships.
