Finding Your True North

Led bySuzanne Botello, PhD, LPC, EAW Psychologist and Katja Buettner, Art Therapist

Tuesdays, November 1 and 8, 11:30 am – 1:30 pm
Health and Learning Center, room 2405

Part of finding our True North is recognizing the beliefs that block our progress. When we experience chronic stress, anxiety, or depression, the feelings that can arise tend to “feel” true and never ending. Research shows that what we believe directly impacts every area of our lives. Join us for an experiential workshop to help shift the thoughts, beliefs, and feelings that bind you, and create a more positive vision for your “True North.”  While this is an interactive group, you will not have to share and you will still reap the benefits of participating. Either way, together we will bring fun into the discovery of new possibilities and open up space to see things in a new light.

 To register, e-mail ask-eaw@nau.edu
