A Note from Mark Felber

"There are children playing in the streets who could solve some of my top problems in physics, because they have modes of sensory perception that I lost long ago."

Eleven seminarsThe Deepest Act of Forgiveness:
Forgiving Yourself

A friend forgives another friend for gossiping about her. A husband forgives a wife for lying to him about her intimate relationship with another man. A mother forgives the man who murdered her daughter. The human capacity to forgive even the deepest wrongs is awe-inspiring.

For many people, forgiving others is liberation from anger and grievance that leads to a richer and happier life. But there is an even deeper peace to be found through what might be the hardest act of all--forgiving ourselves.

The first part of any conflict we must resolve is not between "me and my neighbor," but between "me and me." So believes author and therapist Thom Rutledge, who has written extensively on forgiveness and self-forgiveness.

Few of us would be eager to admit that our spouse, child, or friend has an addiction. Often we don't recognize the problem until authorities are involved. Then we ask how we could have missed the signs. Here are ten guises that denial can take, adapted from Avoiding Relapse: Catching Your Inner Con, by Lynn Namka.

Hooked on Love: When You Love Too Much (Part I & II)

Ten Reasons Why You Should Attend This Seminar
Presented by Mark Felber, L.P.C., L.C.D.C., C.P., CET II

People who are codependent or addicted to love spend their lives taking care of others while neglecting themselves. It might sound noble, but in the end, this care-taking damages relationships and robs codependents of happiness and satisfaction. Fortunately, change is possible. There are ways to learn how to stop giving yourself away.

What You Will Learn:

  • Why some people are so addicted to a relationship that they’ll practically sell their soul to keep one going.
  • Why codependents find it so difficult to express their feelings.
  • Ways that codependents can learn to ask for what they want.
  • How to set boundaries that you really can enforce.
  • How to bolster self esteem and regain a sense of self.
  • How the toxic rules that codependents live by block their recovery.
  • What a healthy relationship looks like.
  • How codependents manipulate and control others.
  • Ways to take back power and start making decisions.
  • How to discover your true self and take off the mask.
