OK folks I’m done pussy footing around, I’m having a little passionate tantrum here. Depression is fixable. Even what I call “situational depression” i.e. crappy external circumstances are causing you to feel overwhelmed with sadness and worry – THAT too is fixable. Even situational depression just vanishes when we understand what’s behind it.
That crushing burden of exhaustion and sadness – fixable
That grief that life isn’t worth living any more without them – fixable
That loneliness and isolation even in the midst of a crowd – fixable
That “holy shit people are so ugly in what they do” – fixable
That numbness and despair as if happiness couldn’t be a part of you ever again – freaking fixable.
That “what the hell we’re all going to get burned drowned or blown up anyway” – holy snapping turtles this one is fixable in a way that will blow your socks off.
Those suicidal thoughts that pop up every now and again – your inner guidance system screaming at you – also fixable and a WHOPPING BIG gift in there as well.
Blunt language alert.
Depression isn’t some bloody mysterious disease that you have to put up with and the drugs a magic pill that’ll make you feel better. Depression is your freaking inner guidance system screaming at you – it’s your GIFT. The same Inner Guidance system is the source of your happiness and joy.
It’s the same Inner Guidance system that I talk about with the five ways of feeling in this presentation. When these Inner Guidance systems have got jammed up, depression is like the emergency brake. If you haven’t seen this presentation before, then I call this “the best 10 minutes you’ll spend in your life”
I have worked with … god knows how many now – hundreds? of depressed people and every single one of them has found their way out of it with this work that we’re doing in this upcoming clinic. I sat here writing this, thinking back to whether I could remember anyone that hadn’t benefited. And far out, I can’t think of one.
We’ve put support systems in place for this clinic for people who are suffering from depression, illness, PTSD, violence, trauma old or current and I ask about that in the first email of the clinic. If you have a loved one suffering, same deal – we have support systems.
You just have to be prepared to do your bit, because although we’ll support you, I’m not dragging you up the bloody hill.
It’s $250 and about 5 hours a week for four weeks, of the best investment of time and money you’ll ever make in your life.
If life is lacking in money at the moment (yes that too is bloody fixable!) then there are full and half scholarships available paid for by old students who are still part of this lovely community, who want to share what they got from this work. Email me if you need one. And email me if you want to add to the scholarship pot.
Our on-Line Clinic Starts Tuesday 5th April
YOU get to pick what you want to work on in the clinic – if it’s depression – make it a bigger, more exciting goal than that, because the depression itself is a piece of cake. Yeah I know, those really big clinical depressions are a bitch, I’m not downplaying the dramatic effect on people’s lives. But still, depression itself is your Inner Guidance at work. So you may as well be working on some exciting feel good goal while you learn how to find the peacefulness and happiness and joy in your Inner Guidance system and fix that depression while you’re at it.
One of the things I do for people who are suffering from depression on this clinic is ask you if you’d like me to test up and score for PHYSICAL causes of depression so that you can attend to them. In the first happiness clinic, 18 out of 19 people who had reported depression and asked for that testing, had dramatic improvement from attending to those physical causes – and THEN they could attend to the mental and emotional causes heaps more easily.
We’re holding two live sessions a week for 4 weeks to cover the different time zones so that you’re able to join in LIVE. (See my note below about the consolidation gap in the middle.) You get to pick which session you attend AND even though there are recordings, you’ll want to do your utmost to attend at least one session per week live. That’s because each session is interactive with those who are participating LIVE and there’s a benefit in being part of that. Because each session is unique to the participants (even with the same subject matter) you’re welcome to listen in or be on recording for the second session in the same week as well.
We’re doing Tuesdays 6.00pm Melbourne time and Thursdays 7am Melbourne time, starting on Tuesday 5th April, with a consolidation week in the middle of the four weeks with no sessions between 14th and the 25th April – i.e. the four week clinic will be over FIVE weeks. Here’s a link to the World Time Clock to find out what those times are for you.
You’ll start receiving my famous 30 second emails daily from signing up, with the opportunity for people new to this work to go deeper with extra resources into aspects of this work that particularly interests you.
And I’ve already talked about the extra support systems we have in place for people experiencing serious stuff – that starts from sign up too. I’ll ask you about that in one of the early emails.
If you’re already experienced with using your Inner Guidance system, this is your opportunity to fine tune it and get closer to mastery or you can take advantage of this amplified field to solve something bigger.
The live sessions will start on the 5th and 7th of April depending on the time that suits you, but your journey and your first lesson / email and the ability to start feeling good about whatever problem or issue that you bring to the clinic, will start from the time you join us.
Start feeling good about it now. $250
