“How to Be at Peace in 2024” Winter Online Live Classes

Have you noticed that life is nothing like it used to be? Sometimes it’s hard to catch your breath before another change occurs. Events are happening so fast now.

You’re probably aware that you aren’t as passionate or interested in anyone or anything. You’re likely struggling to have clarity and stay focused on any one thing for very long.

It’s tough to go out in public and not be on guard. Maybe you’re watching out for erratic drivers, wanting to stay clear of unpleasant encounters, or trying to avoid bullets.

And most likely, you didn’t think budgeting or cutting your expenses would start being a way of life, or at least to this extent.

Then there is the threat of AI soon affecting most industries and the way they do business.

To top it off, everyone seems to be angry or at least on edge, waiting for the other shoe to drop.

There is no doubt about it, 2024 will be a very stressful time for many of us.

These interactive classes will help you see what’s happening in the world and your life differently. Instead of being stressed out and worried, you will learn how to be at peace with yourself, others, and all the changes that are occurring.

She introduces humor and validates our ideas. Vickie provides tools which we can all use quite easily. I am grateful to have found her.” Corinne B.

“Vickie encourages self-reflection by posing thought-provoking questions, fostering a safe space where answers can be given without fear of judgment. She finds amusement in the revealed vulnerabilities, embracing their inherent humanness. Recognizing and vocalizing our thoughts and feelings promotes awareness.” Connie K.

“I just completed a series of Vickie’s classes. What an amazing class! Vickie is a wonderful instructor and I met awesome and interesting people in the class. I learned that we all have our own difficulties (no one is immune) and we all handle things differently. All the class participants shared and I learned so much from them, and Vickie, that I can apply to my life.” Kelly L.
