“Pay It Forward” Option

Due to the kindness of previous donors, we are able to offer a “Pay It Forward” payment option for this workshop for those who are financially challenged. If you feel you cannot pay the full tuition at this time and qualify with our “self-report” income guideline of making under $50,000/year, please consider this option. We ask you to pay a nominal enrollment fee of $50 as a personal commitment to the course. In Week 3, we will ask if you found the benefit of the workshop to be great enough that you are willing to “pay it forward” and pay more—up to or exceeding the stated tuition so that others in the next workshop offering may benefit from your kindness.

Thank you, Dr. Laura and Glidewing

"Laura Greenwood is a fabulous course presenter and facilitator. She has genuine care for the participants and their journey. I learned a great deal about myself and was quite shocked at what I learned. But now I have the knowledge, I know I can do something about it !"
SH Bermuda


"I love it! You have done such a nice job.... I feel like I have just had a visit with you when I'm watching the videos... so cool! Pretty big impacts and LOTS of divine confirmation that I'm on the right path…"
HC, Maine, USA


“This is such a comprehensive course. I am in awe of the labor it must have been to create the workbook, the videos, the sequencing of the course sessions. And your answers to questions in the forum were just right. I am so grateful for being in the course. Thank you!”
TE, Hawaii, USA


"Your workshop is definitely inspiring me to do a longer meditation retreat which I have been wanting to do but this gives me more motivation to make it happen.  Also appreciate that you are doing this to help others like me to get help before they have to suffer too much before changing old habitual patterns of stress and worry.”
BG, Hawaii, USA 


“This course was extremely helpful as I was dealing with situations in my life during the course that were stressful and anger inducing. I was able to apply what I was learning immediately in order to neutralize and develop equanimity towards the situations. This past month has been filled with much more ease and acceptance of what is, more self compassion, and more neutrality towards "the enemy', "the friend", and "the stranger.”

Connect With Your Innate Ability to Achieve Creative Freedom and Contentment


Cultivate an inner state of calm and balance so that you can interact with the world from a place of inner strength and confidence.

This creative freedom-focused program with eminent Buddhist teacher Dr. Laura Greenwood will help you balance your inner life and emotions. The workshop guides you, step-by-step, through a process that frees you from harmful emotional entanglements in relationships and conflicts. You can overcome relationship failures and remain peaceful when others (or your own inner critic) seem to be blaming, shaming, criticizing, grasping or being indifferent toward you. You’ll discover how to draw on your intuitive “knowing” wisdom to skillfully resolve such problems. In this three-week program, you will break free from being the victim of your tumbling, ever-changing emotions

How would your life transform if you were free from the drama, trauma and stressors of your upset emotions? What if you discovered a permanent resolution to dropping your baggage and never taking anything personally again?

Join Dr. Laura for a 3-week online intensive thoughtfully crafted to help you achieve emotional balance.

During every session, we’ll focus on insights, experiential exercises and meditation practices. You’ll also get an accompanying workbook to help you recognize how your reactions arise. Soon, you’ll find you can cultivate an even-minded, tranquil state of mind that allows you to express your highest creative potential and unleash your innate capacity for love, compassion and joy.

The workshop is based on a powerful Buddhist meditation method that is known as “investigative inquiry.” This is similar to the Socratic method of asking thought-provoking questions and then letting the inner wisdom of your own mind come up with the answers.





THE WORKSHOP

Week 1 – Explores the nature of perception, emotional intelligence, change, emotional stress and the mind of equanimity.

Week 2 - Investigates the nature of unhealthy attachment to others, attachment to others’ opinions of you, as well as attachment to material possessions and explores the nature of anger, its emotional costs and its antidotes

Week 3 - Explores the nature of indifference, apathy, and alienation with its antidotes; brings all the practices together in a unifying mediation session; and, examines how these insights can lead to greater self-acceptance, self-confidence and an ease of well-being.
