A Note From Mark Felber

Every habit he's ever had is still there in his body, lying dormant like flowers in the desert. Given the right conditions, all his old addictions would burst into full and luxuriant bloom.

Singles - Mingle - Second Saturday Every Month
Rotating Topics on Relationships and Mental Health

Singles Mingle is a new and more meaningful way of socializing with a purpose beyond searching for Mr. or Ms. Right. During a three-hour gathering you'll meet other singles but you'll also learn how to have more successful relationships and gain insight into yourself and others. Each month a new topic on mental health and relationship issues will be presented along with the latest in holistic health. You're going to learn so much.

Just a few of the things you will learn:
Why you pick the partners you do
How to break from those patterns in your parents' marriage
Why some people are so addicted to relationships
Ways that adults repeat the patterns of their childhood trauma
How people get caught up in process addictions such as spending
How to reduce stress, take the pressure off and enjoy being single
How mindfulness meditation can help you feel more peaceful

Eleven seminarsAddictive Eating:
Are You Powerless Over Food?

The holidays of winter often bring to mind the image of a full table -- and a full stomach. We gather with friends and family and feast merrily on pies and potatoes, turkey and ham and all of the fixings that many of us dearly enjoy.

There is another side to that pretty picture, however.

What if our extra consumption of calories during the winter is fueled not by good cheer and companionship, but by anxiety? And, further, what if it's not the gathering of loved ones that we most look forward to, but the food that we can't get out of our minds?

Listening to Our Bodies: They Know More than We Do!

The body holds much of the information we need to function at our best, but too often we ignore its messages and plow ahead with what our minds tell us. Perhaps because we're not taught from early on to pay attention to internal messages as well as external demands, we frequently ignore our body's communications.

So we take another extra-strength aspirin rather than investigating what's causing our head to ache. We use more caffeine or sugar to give us a lift when we feel tired, rather than hearing our body's message about needing rest or recognizing our fatigue as an early symptom of burnout we'd do well to heed. A look at our pets may be all the message we need about the value of naps.
