Stress Busters Sessions

Career Blocks – Linking Dream, Market, & Skills

September 7, 2021, 4:00 p.m. MT

First Session for September

Most people don’t know how to approach finding work and jump from one job application to another.

The secret to getting work, or to starting a business that has multiple benefits integrates these three criteria: it is meaningful to you, is an actual need in the job market and it uses and builds skills specific to you.

This session is going to show you how to do a labour market search to begin that process, and how to use an inner process to find your own career guiding star.

Career Blocks Q&A

September 21, 2021, 4:00 p.m. MT

Last Session for September

Here’s your chance to ask any career development questions you might have! Marie has helped scores of people find meaningful work in their field.

She helps people from all walks of life, culture, age and ability find stepping stones to find better-paying work or start a business they can be proud of.

Make sure you come prepared with your questions so there is time to address them.

Relationship Blocks – Trust and Vulnerability

October 5, 2021, 4:00 p.m. MT

First Session for October

It is popular for people to say they want their leaders to show more vulnerability. But we need to be selective about who we show our deeper selves to and under what circumstances.

This session will discuss red flags that are important to see if you don’t want to put yourself in a position of opening up to an untrustworthy person.

It will also discuss how early experiences of betrayed trust may blind us to recognizing warning signs later on in life. Finding and strengthening your right to be safe will be a key takeaway.

Relationship Blocks – Control and Perfectionism

October 19, 2021, 4:00 p.m. MT

Last Session for October

There is a well-known saying about control in relationships. It circles around the idea that if you love someone let them go. If love is truly there, the beloved will come back to you.

What is not so commonly known is that if you never felt loved as a child, the two things you learned to do were to prove that you were worthy through being perfect and controlling other people to keep them with you longer.

Neither of these two behaviours works, but we need to recognize their roots to be able to release them and truly feel love – both for ourselves and for others.

This session uses self-statements with a personal brainstorming strategy to find out where your self-love block is and become aware of how it is affecting your relationships with others.

Relationship Blocks Q&A

November 2, 2021, 4:00 p.m. MT

First Session for November

In the last two Stress Busters sessions, we talked about trust and vulnerability, and the issues of control and perfectionism in relationships. What did that bring up for you? What relationship issues have you found cropping up in your life over time?

I found when I first thought of this that I would start relationships aggressively, coming into a new friendship with challenges. After some reflection, I realized that I had some issues with thinking I would be rejected if I didn’t provoke the other person to remember me.

As soon as I became aware of that, I stopped doing it! People may find that they are too intense with new friendships or romantic relationships and that they drive others away. Or they may find they are needy, controlling, or always pick people who take advantage of or hurt them.

Whatever your relationship patterns, there are insights that can set you on the healing path without having to bare your soul or delve into the details. Let’s look at a few of these relationship blocks and learn a few strategies to dissolve them.

Are you in? Join me on November 2nd, at 4 pm MT.

Health Blocks – Body, Mind, Emotions

November 9, 2021, 4:00 p.m. MT

Last Session for November

There are clear links to emotions and illness. Our beliefs about health can come from our families, our culture, surrounding societal media messages and personal experience.

This open session of Stress Busters reveals some of these links and provides you with a self-diagnosis tool you can use to discover your health blocks.

I will share three health scenarios and explore the hidden beliefs in each one to make the experience personal and tangible.

You will not want to miss this insight into the links between your aches and pains and your emotions! It will prove invaluable in helping you to release old patterns and feel great.

Join me on November 9th at 4 pm MT to get in on this free session !

Health Blocks – Inflammation

December 7, 2021, 4:00 p.m. MT

First Session for December

On December 7th at 4 pm MT, I will explain some of the science behind inflammation in the body and how it is affected by stress and emotions.

Certainly, there are physical issues that are biological or disease-related, but even these are much affected by inflammation caused by stress over long periods of time.

There is no person on the planet unaffected by stress since are all living in an economic, environmental and security volatile world.

Join me on this aha moment session to find your links to stress, emotions and inflammation.

Health Blocks Q&A

December 21, 2021, 4:00 p.m. MT

Last Session for December

December 21st, our final Stress Busters session for 2021, is a Q&A you will not want to miss.

Over the past two Stress Busters sessions, we explored emotional links to illness and health and the direct effects of stress on inflammation in the body. What health issues have you found recurring in your life?

You can head them off ahead of time with self-calming strategies, and decrease both stress and inflammation, but you need to know what works for you and where to start. Holiday seasons don’t need to be unnecessarily stressful.

Join me during this Q&A session that is for you and about you. Bring your specific questions so we can find solutions that work for you.

Help us meet your needs by telling us what topics would be most useful to you for upcoming masterclasses.
We would love to hear from you!
