The wheel of Self Love and the Work of Byron Katie at Nourishing Journeys

After all your work on yourself, do you STILL sometimes feel anxious, angry, or alienated...clueless about how to shift deeply entrenched patterns in one or more important relationships, whether it's a Client, Romantic Partner, Parent, Child, today's World Situation, or YOUR OWN DEAR SELF?

Despite your best intentions--and a sincere wish to be of service--are there certain situations where you find yourself flipping between judgement/blame and regret/shame, turning on yourself or another, closing your heart..... unable to experience the harmony, synergy, joy that characterizes the rest of your life?

Then you've come the right place. 🙂 If you are ready to finally stop beating yourself up for good, this event is about a simple, life-altering HOW. How to efficiently and reliably USE those times when you feel fearful, misunderstood, or disconnected as your TAILOR-MADE path to peace, fun, respect, collaboration, and a radical kind of self-love that heals all relationships.

Join us Saturday, April 14 as we drop deeply into …

The Reliable Symmetry of Happiness

The Missing PEACE We Were Never Taught

See for yourself the only thought that ever separates you from self, others, and life. Begin the happy journey home to deep inner advocacy–the Self-Solidarity’ Shawn reveals to be the bottom line in all spiritual quest.

If you are just SO ready for some RADICAL RELIEF IN ALL YOUR RELATIONSHIPS (Including time and money!) ... Then we have really HAPPY NEWS:

Whatever or Whoever Upsets, Scares, or Saddens You Absolutely holds the Key to Greater Peace, Freedom, and Happiness–and a Warm Dependable Connection to Yourself and the very Person or Situation that Triggered You (once you know how it works).



“Shawn, this is amazing. You’re a gift. You are really good at what you do. I can’t even imagine anyone being as helpful as you’ve been.”

—Carol Kerr, Annapolis Unity Member

“Understanding what I call “The Reliable Symmetry of Happiness” was–for me–the beginning of the end of fear, anger, sadness, and the hell of regret. The reason I call this a Paradigm Shift is because this ‘happy symmetry’ changed my entire relationship to life–in a very short time–and does the same for those in my Groups and Individual work.” – Shawn Mahshie

There is deep integrity, Shawn, in what you share ... It's palpable and permeates your words and actions. Your willingness to be both visible and vulnerable is a continual testimony of your dedication to 'walk your talk.'

I'm in. I've drunk the Reliable Symmetry of Happiness kool aid. I want to immerse myself in it, become a skilled practitioner of it in my own mind and life, and pass it on to everyone I reach through Bright Line Eating to address the monkey mind that erupts when the crutch of food is no longer a go-to option.

This is soooo awesome! I feel really great right now! Thank you so much for facilitating my paradigm shift!

Thank you for doing this group. I think The Work is awesome and its clear that you are masterful with The Work from all the feedback I’ve heard from multiple people now and I think it could benefit everyone, and I don’t say that about many things. I think that The Work is… well it’s phenomenal; it’s absolutely transformative. It doesn’t matter how enlightened you already are, you can go further with The Work. It can produce profound breakthroughs that you might not find any other way. It gets at stuff that we can very effectively avoid in the rest of our lives. The stuff we are conveniently avoiding--The Work will get at it. So Yeah, I highly recommend this. (Recommending another group—not THIS exact one).

It is said that what we all want above all things are Love and Freedom. I advocate highly for Shawn’s ability to help guide you HOME to both! Her Commitment, Love and Skill, her Patience and Guidance, and especially her Courage are all for YOU and in service to YOUR HEALING. I love her and her work! If you’re ready to roll up your sleeves, and get to it, this is the place and Shawn is the person! I hope to see you at her next event!
