Coming soon, a new online course!

Mea culpa. It’s been a couple of months since I last posted.

I’ve been busily incorporating the ideas from my book The Art of Balance: Staying Sane in an Insane World into a new online course called Mastering the Art of Balance: Stay Sane in an Insane World.

A mini version of the course is in beta test. Once that process is complete, I’ll be going full speed ahead creating the rest of it.

You can get a sneak peak at the introduction to Mastering the Art of Balance here:

This course is still in development. You can help me tailor it to your needs by answering this quick question:

What are some “unbalancers” you’ve encountered that you’d like to see me “rebalance” in Mastering the Art of Balance?

I’d love to hear your responses, either via email or as a comment on the blog post.

Every four weeks or so, I’ll post course videos here and on a new YouTube channel. My hope is that the video presentation will attract a wider audience and more engagement. A Facebook self-help group, The Balance Lab, is available to anyone who purchases either the book or the course.

The course’s first home will be, the largest online course marketplace. The course will have many additional videos, downloadable resources, and other bonuses not available anywhere else.

Looking forward to your comments. See you in cyberspace –

  1. A major stressor is getting a really negative diagnosis, delivered badly by the MD.

    1. Yes, that’s a really tough one, a double whammy. I’m sorry if that’s happened to you or to someone close to you. I had been thinking about a sudden illness as an example, but not about the possible negative role of the medical profession in it.

  2. How to stop assimilating and reflecting back other people’s negative talk (in my case about my art) into my own mind talk. Refeeding it back at me from my own Gremlins.

    1. Thanks for this, Lynn. This is something I’ve also dealt with and in one instance, the negative remarks of a professor and the negative self-talk incorporated from my father stopped me from writing for a decade.

      I find that the absence of positive feedback can also have a similar effect, and not just about art. I’ll give this one more thought.

      In my own case, two things that have helped are: 1) finding sources of positive feedback that counteracts the negative feedback (I’m part of an artists group that helps with this), and 2) learning to recognize the negative self-talk “voice” and remind myself that it never gave me good advice.
