  • Empower Yourself NOW, Get Unstuck, and Make 2016 Amazing
    What's keeping you frozen, unable to move forward, and preventing you from becoming the best and highest version of yourself, and living the life you've been dreaming of? 2016 is fast approaching, and you can make it your best year ever! *This will be the last Self-Love & Happiness Club Meetup in 2015, so do your best to come. This Meetup will be in 2 parts: 30 minutes of discussion followed by 60 minutes of coaching demonstrations and practice. In Part 1 of this 90-minute Meetup, we'll spend the first part in a lively and heart-felt discussion on what kinds of challenges you're currently facing in your life. Where have you wanted to move forward but haven't yet figured out how? What have you tried? You'll get to hear what challenges other Self-Lovers have and what they've tried? (You'll see how you're not alone; many of us face similar challenges.) After our exploration of the ways we're being held back from the lives we want to live, in Part 2 of our Meetup, if you've ever been curious about the coaching process and want to experience (or simply observe*) how powerful it can be, then this is the Meetup for you. *Participation is purely voluntary. You're more than welcome to simply observe (you'll get a lot out of that, as well). I will ask for volunteers and we will do brief one-on-one coaching sessions to help you dig deep within yourself, uncover the hidden blocks, and tapping into your own Inner Wisdom, come away with the next step to move you forward. Then, if there's time, we'll get into pairs (again, only if you choose to, otherwise you can observe the pairs), and I will supply you with a few empowering questions and you can practice coaching each other (the added benefit is that you'll also come away with some knowledge on how to powerfully coach yourself). Come prepared to take some positive and concrete steps towards making 2016 the best year ever. Remember, this will be the last Meetup in 2015. I'm looking forward to seeing you there! COST: $10 (Please understand that it will cost me over $80 to do this Meetup - between Meetup.com fees and venue rental, so I must charge.)

  • Optimism, Gratitude & Mindfulness: The Essentials of a Happy Life
    NOTE: I'll be using a PowerPoint Presentation for this Meetup (for all of those "visual" people, like me :). Also, I've created a simple 2-page PDF to make it easier for people to take notes (I've noticed some Self-Lovers like to, yet not easy to do during the meetup). See "More" -> "Files" to find and download the PDF. Having a positive mindset is one of the 7 habits of very happy people. There's a ton of research to support how important optimism, gratitude and mindfulness are in cultivating a happy, meaningful and successful life. Come join us for a fun, light, yet informative hour, and learn how you can make happiness a priority during the last half of 2015 (and for the rest of your life). Cost: $10 (but no one will be turned away for lack of funds).

  • Women (only) FOCUS GROUP on Relationships
    In preparation for my Fall 2015 women's workshop (I'll be co-leading with Dawn Diamond): Becoming an Authentic Partner: Rediscovering Hope and Joy in Intimate Relationships. We cordially invite you to express yourself during our women’s focus group and/or survey. With your assistance we believe we can ensure the workshop‘s content is pertinent to the interests and needs of women who are in the process of seeking a new, improved, high quality relationship with a significant other. Healthy appetizers and drinks will be served. Bring your experience and advice. PLEASE RSVP ONLY if you're really planning to attend. Number of attendees is very limited. I'd love to have women from our Club attend. If you aren't able to be at the Focus Group, the online survey takes only 3 minutes. Your feedback is valuable and I encourage you to take a few minutes to complete it. Go here for the survey: https://david359.typeform.com/to/natdxt Thanks very much. If you have any questions, please email or ask me at our upcoming Meetup on the 21st. Love & Happiness. David PS: Men, your turn will be coming soon!

  • Silencing the Inner Critic Part 2: Breaking the Habit of Negative Self-Talk
    Given our Inner Critics (and the negative self-talk they spew) are really just a "bad habit" that we've picked up over a lifetime of being told we're not enough, not worthwhile, are unloveable, etc., etc., etc., we'll work on ways to reduce their volume and frequency. If you didn't attend Part 1 on July 7th, NO PROBLEM. You'll be brought up to speed very quickly and get a great deal of benefit from this Meetup. COST: $10. (Sorry, but needed to raise the price. Truly hope that's okay with everyone. HOWEVER, if $10 is not possible, please come anyway - no one will be turned away). Looking forward to seeing all of you Self-Lovers on the 21st!! With Love & Happiness, David
