Listening Wellness Center | Events
Listening is a non-profit center whose mission is to promote wholistic health and wellness for the Central Massachusetts community. The name Listening is inspired by a Chinese acupuncture point. This point helps you to hear outside sounds and your inner, intuitive voice — creating balance between inner and outer, active and quiet. This harmony is the road to health.

Success Circle

This group meets once a month for 6 months. First session begins Sunday, September 17th: 9:45am-12:45pm
$70 per session. 10% discount if paid in full, in advance.
$35 per session for teens, when accompanied by an adult.

This group is for anyone who is interested in developing and attaining personal goals. You will learn how to formulate goals in different areas of your life and be coached on how to attain your goals with the least amount of resistance. Since much of the resistance that we experience is self-inflicted, subconscious techniques will be utilized to enhance individual success.

If you find yourself in the familiar place of wandering through life without a plan and would like to have a more intentional direction, then give this group a try. Who knows, you may discover your true passion in life or at the very least figure out how to get things going in a more positive direction.
You will learn techniques that you can use for the rest of your life. The activities utilized are both time-honored and innovative, ensuring the best results possible. This is an eye opening, self-discovery workshop. One you will not want to miss out on.
This is a time-limited, closed group, so you will have the added support of those working on similar goals and sharing their experiences along the way. It has been shown that working with the encouragement of others is more likely to culminate in success than working alone.

Discover how to…

  • Set goals and achieve them
  • Point your life in a more positive direction
  • Enhance your business, work life or career
  • Develop and enjoy positive and uplifting relationships
  • “Get out of your own way.”
Fee for 6 months: $420
10% discount for full payment in advance = $378.
