Our 2023 Sessions

Dr. Caroline Leaf

Toxic thoughts, depression, and anxiety- our mental mess- are frequently aggravated by a chaotic world and sustained by an inability to manage our runaway thoughts. But we shouldn't settle into this mental mess as if it's just our new normal. Hope and help are available to us, and the road to healthier thoughts and peak happiness may be shorter than you think.  

You will learn the following in this session: 

  • How the five steps can help reduce anxiety and depression by up to 81%, according to clinical studies.  
  • How science can help us transition from being aware of toxic thoughts to catching and managing them in their early stages.  
  • How to capitalize on directed neuroplasticity using the Neurocycle. 
  • To apply mind-management to unwire toxic habits and trauma.  
  • How to leverage the lessons in the book for their daily lifestyle, including connection, brain-building, sleep, diet, exercise, people-pleasing, toxic perfectionism, overthinking, toxic emails and texts.
  • Why mindfulness is not enough and how strategic mind-management through the five steps can take a reader beyond mindfulness. 

And more to come!
