What we're about
This group is for people seeking greater satisfaction and happiness. It meets monthly to explore the physical, psychological, and social need-states that are universal to human experience through the perspective of emotional intelligence and mindfulness. Participation is on a drop-in basis, with regular participation encouraged but not required.
Participants will learn to discern what is essential to their authentic happiness rather than being distracted by the "shoulds" and "musts" that others and society may have placed upon them. They will also learn various skills that increase effectiveness in getting their needs met. As these skills are practiced participants will gain a clearer, more integrated sense of self, and experience the freedom, joy, and meaning they have been seeking.
The group is facilitated by Susan and David.
Susan Dutton, CEIC, is the owner of Smart Relationships, LLC. She is a sociologist, a certified emotional intelligence coach, and corporate consultant.
David Paluch, RN, LPC, is a licensed professional counselor and psychiatric nurse.
