These 6-8 week classes are held two hours a week in a closed group setting of 8-10 people.

Introduction to Happiness Tools This class is designed to guide you toward finding and sustaining your core of happiness. You will learn tools for shifting your emotions to a better feeling place. In a small group setting, safety and trust will allow us to go deeper into feeling and expressing joy. While there is a flexible format, each class is also spirit-led and tailored to the individuals present. (This class is a pre-requisite for True Love Now.) The minimum contribution is $25 per week.

True Love NowAs we explore these 3 powerful words in our lives, we will develop, share and learn new tools to
Be True, Be Love and Be Now, which are all part of being happy. Be True: How do we discern what is true for us?  
When do we speak our piece of the truth? What holds us back from speaking our truth? Who are we as we live our truth? Be Love: What would love do? It is easy to love the lovable in others and ourselves, and how do we love the “unlovable” in others and ourselves? What gets in the way of being love, allowing love, trusting love? Be Now: Live and be in the now. What does it mean to live fully in the moment? How do we have awareness of when we are not able or wanting to be present? What might we do with that information to bring ourselves back to the present moment? You may register for this class if you have already completed a happiness class, or have prior permission from Barb. The minimum contribution is $25 per week.

Using Happiness Tools to Prevent Burnout – Are you feeling stressed at work? Taking your work home with you? Not sleeping well because of concern for your client/coworkers? Feeling like you need to do it perfectly? In this 2-4 hour workshop you will learn happiness tools to alleviate stress.


Learn ways to put yourself first, care for yourself, and prevent burnout. These same tools can also be used to recover from burnout. Learn the difference it can make when you shift your own thoughts and feelings, putting yourself first, so that you change your experience from within even as you provide care for others.


Evening of Upliftment – During this evening of upliftment, Barb transmits insight and wisdom in the spirit of happiness. The theme of the evening is “What Would Love Do?”
Each person is invited to write down one comment, question or concern. As the spirit of happiness speaks through her, the teachings that come forth are both deeply personal and universal. A question about where to move may inspire a teaching about discernment or finding one’s path. A concern about violence may become a teaching about peace and love. A comment about family may be expressed as a teaching about love and compassion. Join us for this amazing and truly uplifting experience.
