CMED Education

People have always known that external happiness is easy to define. We learn to provide food, clothing, shelter, security & entertainment, and acquire a successful career, mate and children; and voila, happiness!  This is the full-scale American dream.

The only problem is that mastering internal  needs and potentials is also necessary before our lives can be complete. Since internal needs & potentials are invisible and intangible—we need detailed training in how to first define, and then master them.

My books, classes, workshops, and individual sessions provide the awareness and skills necessary to master internal needs and potentials—and integrate love, truth, beauty & wisdom into daily life.

CMED Workshops

Mastering Mindfulness:
The Foundation for Individual Happiness
Romantic Intimacy & Meaningful Work

True mindfulness is the cornerstone necessary to create the internal (mental & emotional) development required to build lasting happiness.

In this workshop, you will learn how to first quiet your mind—and then observe, listen, gather information, use reason and experiment—so you bring a relaxed, focused, and organized mind to the experience of everyday life.

You will also learn how to define, feed, and fulfill the internal needs and potentials necessary for the self-worth, emotional safety, and conscious purposes that lay the foundation for creating individual happiness, romantic intimacy, and meaningful work.

Essential Goals for CMED Workshops

  1. Become consciously sensitive to the fact that you really are alive and death is certain, so you observe that it is essential to create life-affirming priorities and purposes.
  2. Respond to these basic facts by becoming curious and wanting to understand, not control, life’s many mysteries.
  3. Integrate the experiential definitions that identify the objective and universal elements of love, purpose, meaning, truth, beauty and wisdom, as well as all your critical internal needs and potentials.
  4. Learn the process necessary to apply all the definitions to create individual happiness, romantic intimacy, and meaningful work.

Applying CMED Training

Individuals & Couples:  The key to individual fulfillment is growing in competence to understand and nurture ourselves and other people.  For couples, the issue is how to grow internally, give energy and attention, and share reality, purposes, primal experience, and quintessential moments.

With CMED training, people become competent to offer satisfying personal conversations, learn to create life-affirming conscious purposes, and can structure a day or a lifetime so they are vibrantly alive and permanently memorable—not just momentarily pleasurable.

Parents & Teachers:  Educating children is now largely limited to teaching right from wrong, to obey authority, to learn how to read, write and do arithmetic, and if lucky, learn to appreciate the arts. There is however, no education for internal development.

CMED offers parents and teachers the information they need to teach children how to develop self-worth, emotional safety, and self-awareness—as well as how to explore any topic, discover what is true, and then provide what is needed.

In the process, parents and teachers learn how to educate children in the layers of developmental tasks necessary to master internal needs and potentials.

Mental Health Professionals:  Traditional psychotherapy does not even pretend to understand, or teach us how to complete our developmental tasks, or master our internal needs and potentials.

While psychotherapy can help us feel better, it does not provide the objective internal competence we need. With CMED training, therapists acquire all the critical skills and awareness necessary to offer real healing and measurable internal growth.
