“Fine”, “We’re fine”, “Everything is just fine”

Speaker: Angelia Brigance

Heard that before? After 20 years in the senior industry and growing up in an intergenerational family, those words echo in my ears. I heard my grandparents say it to my mother and my mother has said it to me. How do you know when to step over the threshold and be proactive in your parents care? Where do you start? What are the signs? How do you get past “fine”? Come and learn how to get past polite and into the reality of aging.

Life Shift: Moving beyond Success to a life of Significance

Speaker: Michael Lindfield

There appears to be a natural evolution in the careers of many highly accomplished individuals that causes them to shift their reference point from success to significance with a realization that as they grow older, it’s more important to feed the soul than the ego and more rewarding to serve others than just oneself.

I sincerely believe that we each wish to know that our lives count for something and that we are contributing to and serving something larger than ourselves. This basic need for meaning and belonging is a powerful driver within the human psyche. It takes courage and clarity to stop and question the many individual and collective beliefs that dictate what success should look like. It then takes even more courage and clarity to dare to follow our dreams by wholeheartedly engaging in those things that nourish the soul and not just the ego.

This presentation explores ways in which our notion of “success” can be redefined and how we can hit the “refresh” button to bring ourselves more into alignment with our deeply held values so that we may achieve our highest goals and make a positive difference in the lives of those around us.

Creative Meditation: the Key to Inner Fitness and Health

Speaker: Michael Lindfield

Recent scientific research into the functioning of the brain has shown how the regular practice of meditation can increase our capacity for creative thinking while significantly reducing stress levels within our physical, emotional and mental bodies.

Much emphasis is now being placed on the need for healthy living and consequently, many people are choosing to change their diets, enroll in a variety of exercise programs or take a yoga class. There is however another practice that can be added to our daily training regime that will help create the desired optimal conditions of health. This practice is meditation. The age-old science of meditation allows us to tap and utilize a reservoir of inner resources that can enrich our lives on many levels. There is now a real opportunity for each of us through a combination of physical exercise, right living and meditation, to create a successful training program for the whole person that can truly sustain us as we face the daily challenges of living in a fast-paced world.

This presentation introduces and explores some basic principles and proven techniques of creative meditation that can be applied immediately to help achieve measurable results.

Thriving at Work: Skills for staying Sane and Centered while traveling at the Speed of Business

Speaker: Michael Lindfield

Many business professionals are now confronting the painful issue of how best to survive through a “burn-out”. This may have been caused by a personal health crisis, a breakdown of relationships where family, colleagues and friends are not receiving enough attention or simply a feeling of a profound sense of emptiness. For some strange reason, we have been attempting to sprint a marathon at full speed while juggling a variety of family, work, social, and individual needs and pressures in a bid to be successful. It is not surprising that this way of functioning in the world is proving to be a non-sustainable and an unhealthy way of living.

This presentation addresses the challenges of living into today’s complex, high-speed and technology-driven world and explores how we can move from a state of  “survival” to one of “thrival”. It also offers a suite of practical ‘“thrival” tools and ways to engage more positively and authentically in the workplace and at home so that our lives are more balanced and rewarding: both professionally and personally.
