Well-being and Personal Resilience Changes

Well-being and Personal Resilience Changes

"I am much calmer and more aware of my stress points. My colleagues have commented on how calm I am and how relaxed I look now. I should have taken this course long before now. I used to think that my regular jogging was all I that I had to do. I was wrong."

CB, Teacher

"From skeptic to convert in five very short evenings. First and foremost, my ability to deal with stressful situations improved almost immediately and continues to improve daily. I no longer dread situations at work or in my personal life that used to cause me such grief. Decisions have become easier, worries have been less and I am a much happier person. 

Secondly, during the five sessions and with daily practice at home, I lost 14 pounds and have lost an additional 5 for a loss of 19 pounds to date. I might add that the only change that could have affected this loss were the relaxation exercises, as I did not make any significant changes to my food intake. Thanks for providing alternatives to stress and providing me with the skills to maintain a healthy attitude for the rest of my life."

M. Ball, Manager

"I now carry with me the glow of relaxed well-being - of an alert and receptive mind and a sense of being in touch with my true self - into my everyday life. The results are becoming more apparent almost daily.  I now know what it's like to be serene; what it's like to feel in control, in charge - not only of myself, but of my work as a writer, of situations in which I work and discuss problems with colleagues, and even in conferences with strangers... I feel myself thinking more clearly, more purposefully, and can get back on track whenever I veer off it... I am so grateful for what you have been able to teach me."

"The Beyond Stress course was something I have been looking for most of my life. I only regret that it took me nearly 50 years to find it, but better late than never."

P. Ricci, Teacher

"It has been more than two years since I took your Beyond Stress course and the benefits are still making themselves known. I rarely get upset now. I never lose my temper and I leave my frustrations where they are. Also, I rarely lie awake at night worrying about life. I feel the course taught me to focus my energy more positively so as to avoid sleepless nights. The techniques I learned in the course have become a part of my life. When I feel tension or anxiety, I know I can rely on the techniques to help me clear my mind and contain the anxiety. It was a great course that changed my life for the better."

W. Roberts, Advertising

"The Beyond Stress course has been profoundly beneficial to me. I was fast approaching burnout - physically, mentally and emotionally. Over just four weeks the physical symptoms are receding and I'm getting better in every way, every day. This course has been a blessing to me. I have more energy, a greater sense of well-being and contentment. I have more joy in my life, and this is just the beginning."

J. Byerlay, Chief Operating Officer

"I was a skeptical and reluctant participant at the beginning but the experience to which you so persuasively exposed me has been one I would not have missed for anything. The Beyond Stress program was an enjoyable and useful learning process, enabling any serious participant to gain an understanding and control over the stress tendencies that we all pursue with varying degrees of unconscious tenacity. Awareness is heightened and your solutions as taught and practiced over the five sessions most certainly work. I sleep better and I cope consciously now with stress indicators at work and at home."

J Kilpatrick, Human Resources Manager
"The Beyond Stress course is thorough and amazingly effective. My whole life now feels truly ahead of me. I have more energy and I am now able to relax, not collapse. My feeling of burnout is reduced and my sense of humor and flexibility has returned. I'm not so disassociated with my body and I have increased contact with my spirit. My peaks of anxiety are not as high and my lows are not so low. Some of my experiences in the course were really remarkable and very moving."
K. Kho, Graphic Designer

"I have a monstrous amount of stress in my life. So when I finally came to the realization that I needed to do something concrete to buffer my mental and physical health from the ravages of a typical urban life, I discovered most of the solutions being hawked were not for me... imagine my delight when I found Eli Bay, who offers a technique, and not some spiritual or mystical journey... Eli transferred to me, in a remarkably easy and straight forward way, a skill I never knew I had, and now can't imagine coping without - the ability to turn off the tape loop of daily detail, become aware of the tension carried in the body, and let all the stress drain out."
