“SLOWING DOWN TO THE SPEED OF LIFE”
Charlie Curtis

When we get moving too fast, life can feel upside down and sideways, and our bodies can feel tight, tense, and uncomfortable. We start feeling rushed and it seems like there is not enough time or resources to achieve our goals.

Two simple linked techniques of structured journaling and meditating in a certain way allow you to “Slow Down To The Speed of Life.”  This simple practice takes only a few minutes to turn life right side up again, restore a natural feeling of peace, lead to a delightful sense of physical relaxation, and then life feels good again..

This is a different way of achieving Herbert Benson’s “Relaxation Response,” which has been shown scientifically to achieve such wonderful results in mind/body medicine…All participants will receive a recording of the presentation, plus a CD-length explanation of several versions of the technique, plus some accompanying documentation that further explains the concept..

Charlie Curtis, BCH has trained groups and individuals in mindfulness and stress reduction techniques since 1983.  He is part of 4Directions Counseling, a group counseling practice.  After spending two years in an ashram, he became a life-long mediator and explorer of spiritual philosophies.  For the last 20 years he has been providing free weekly classes in classical and modern metaphysics at the local Unity of Reading (currently virtual).  He is an award-winning therapist who, besides his private practice, teaches a year-long professional level training for medical and mental health professionals, that combines Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, Meridian Tapping, and Clinical Hypnosis to achieve deep stress reduction.  He loves journaling and meditation and is forever experimenting with different ways of combining them for achieving even better results.
