We all may have occasional doubts about our degree of happiness and may wonder if we are making the most of our lives. Feelings of deprivation can occur for all of us (ourselves, our friends, partners, or others) even in situations where actual mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, and/or losses are not present. Such feelings can cross all segments of socioeconomic and educational strata. The challenge is to find a proactive internal voice that is open to internal exploration and problem solving. Over the course of this workshop you will gain insight into how early ingrained ideas of deficit and deprivation have shaped your current perceptions and how to rewrite the script in moving away from feelings of lack.
