Author Event & Book Signing with Maureen Fallon-Cyr "Reimagining Sucess"
6:00pm / Maria's Bookshop
Everyone longs for a successful and fulfilling life. Yet many of us may experience success only in certain areas of our life. For instance, we may do well at work yet struggle in our home life. We may enjoy certain comforts yet suffer from depression, anxiety, or addictions. How can we experience success and well-being across our life? We can learn to clear the blocks and fears that are holding us in unhealthy patterns. Bringing the power of mindfulness and psychology together, we can locate the roots of our limiting patterns to heal them, clearing the way for us to reconnect with our own Essence, a wellspring of inner composure and wisdom that serves as our inner compass, guiding us to choices and actions that create a happy, fulfilling life. When we are in connection with our Essence, we reclaim the aliveness, confidence and freedom we experienced as young children, inspired to live as we are meant to live.   About Maureen  Maureen is a is a graduate of Smith College School for Social Work and a certified Hakomi Therapist. For more than 30 years, she has offered mindfulness-based psychotherapy to people of all ages, specializing in trauma, somatic release, and depth psychology.   Maureen also served on the teaching council of the Durango Dharma Center for eight years, teaching classes in meditation, mindful parenting, mindfulness 12-Step healing, and compassionate living.   Together with her husband, Mark, they have been developing True Success For All, a program that brings new perspectives on successful living, empowering us to realize our true potential.    When Maureen and Mark are not teaching True Success, they enjoy playing in the Colorado mountains with their family and friends.
