$150.00 - $175.00

Dr. Irena Persky is a Blazin Babes member, mother of two with a PhD in psychology and over 20 years of a combination of clinical and research experience in the area of health and wellbeing.  Based on the latest scientific findings and dedicating years of work seeing patterns among her patients, Irena created a framework that focuses on authentic wellbeing.  This framework offers a toolkit for people to apply in their daily lives to optimize well being and sustain happiness.

What is Authentic WellBeing?

Authentic WellBeing means life satisfaction.  It means having a realistically positive outlook on life.  It means following a path of wellness that was meant for you and makes you happy.  It means having a strong foundation in fundamental values that is true to you and is at the core of both your personal and professional goals and aspirations.

We welcome women of Blazin’ Babes and all over the Chicagoland area to attend this workshop entitled “Authentic WellBeing” where you will focus on the 6 pillars of authentic happiness, identify which pillar(s) you need to work on, and leave with a toolkit of action items of which you can apply in your daily routine to ensure that you are living a life of true authenticity and happiness.

Think of this as a 3 hour therapy session which will…..

1.  Combine the latest scientific research with best practices, skills training, and participatory activities that inspire self-reflection and meaningful personal growth.

2.  Equip you with concrete, scientifically-based psychological tools that you can immediately use in your life.

3. Harness your personal power in shaping your wellness in the midst of all that life demands of you.

4.  Embody wellbeing with intention, authenticity, and mindful awareness.

5.  Zero in on key pillars of wellbeing, clarify your goals, and define the steps you need to attain them.
