Lynne Forrest, Dr. Pimental-Habib Speak At CHEO Meeting Jan. 20

Wednesday, January 2, 2013

Lynne Forrest will speak on the Reality Formula for Kids (and Adults) at the CHEO monthly meeting on Sunday, Jan. 20, 2-4 p.m. at Nutrition World.  

Long-time CHEO member, Ms. Forrest has created the “Reality Formula for Kids,” a process that teaches healthy interaction and a path to peace for kids (including the inner child).  She says every child’s (person’s) job is to figure out how they need to be/act in order to get their need for attention met. Some get attention by being helpers. Some get attention by picking on others. They become bullies. Some get attention by being sick, weak, or fragile. Ms. Forrest’s goal is for each attendee is to become fully actualized for 2013.

Dr. Rick Pimental-Habib, PhD, CCH will speak on Living Your Highest Self.

With inspiration from ancient as well as modern-day wisdom, local author and psychotherapist, Dr. Pimental-Habib

 will share tips, stories and philosophies around living your highest self.  He will read excerpts from his mind/body/spirit column of six years, "Shrink Rap," as well as from his books. He says that together we'll look at ways -- perceptions, beliefs, behaviors -- to help make 2013 our best year yet.
