What we're about

This new group 'Life's Lessons' will support you not only to find more happiness through sharing life's lessons, but also to learn from others via listening, guidance, new friends, energy, ideas and possibilities. Most people stay in the 'search to be happy' mode , but seldom actually reach it. Or find it only for short periods. Let's change that.

We use gentle, unique and interesting techniques based on Practical Psychology to help you to connect with yourself and others - no cult stuff or selling products! - just plain care, learning, enjoying and authentic support. It's ideal for anyone that experience(d) some kind of trauma like divorce, depression, relocation, isolation, uncertainty, feelings of 'being unloved' or if you simply want to get MORE out of life.

The group offers you the opportunity feel inspired by others and life, learn about positive energy, feel part of a meaningful group and community and much more.

Meetings are usually held Wednesdays downtown Toronto at 7pm.
It's your chance to feel good about yourself.
And life.

In total we have more than 100 members, about 35 via Meetup.

DISCUSSION TOPICS include:
· Self-love and Happiness
· Build a solid Self-esteem
· Practicing living in the moment
· How/where do I fit into the world?
· SOMETHING feels missing in my life...
· Life after trauma, divorce, loss, hopelessness
· Learn to be more dynamic & make authentic friends
· There is only two choices in life: Love or FEAR
· A life not examined, is a life not worth living
· People will really move you. Nothing else.
· Are you missing your own life?
· Find out who you really are.
· Depression & Anxiety
· Starting life over

A few reviews from members: ★Insights and inspiration in abundance! ★I loved every moment ★Thank you for an eye opening experience, very profound ★ This is the best place in Toronto to meet REAL people ★ A healthy way to discuss challenges that many of us face.

Snacks & conversation is served from 6h45 :-) before we start at 7PM sharp. Free underground parking is available if you arrive by car. • What to bring : Most importantly yourself! -More info to follow when you sign-up to attend the meeting (& yes!, you can bring a friend too if there is still a seat available). The best way to contact me is via Meetup's Messenger system if you have any questions. • Important to know : Meetings are conducted in a spirit of kindness and respect towards one another. You will leave the meeting feeling inspired and with new positive knowledge to help you improve your life. For the ‘maximum positive effect’ be ready to join the group when you can be commited to yourself to attend 3 or more meetings in a row (we meet every Wednesday at 7pm) as the enhancement is a process.
