In This Program, You Will
Participants come away with:
Deepening your awareness requires you to go beyond our own perspective and limited experience – and explore a bigger and better truth for yourself. The first step is to understand the power of your breath. Not just as a means to receive oxygen, but as a bridge between the mind, body and spirit. Your breath is the gateway to the present moment, to a bigger picture and a greater truth. The present moment is the only place you can really experience and consciously create your life. Deepening your awareness opens you to more potential and more possibilities.
What would it be like if love was the foundation of everything you thought, said, did and created? What would it feel like to look in the mirror and feel an overwhelming love for the person staring back at you? What would it feel like to do what you love, be with people you love, create what you love and surround yourself with what you love on a daily basis? What would life be like if your heart was directing your steps and your mind was supporting you with its intellect? Can you imagine how it would feel to have your mind and your life in alignment with your heart’s desires? Can you imagine a life where love isn’t just an emotion, but a philosophy of living. This can be your reality. It does not occur over night. It is a process that occurs over time with the support of inspired principles and practices that create a positive shift in your relationship with yourself and your life.
To live an empowered life requires skills. It takes practice and skill to become adept at aligning your thoughts, words and actions with the calling in your heart. It takes practice and skill to communicate effectively. It takes practice and skill to move though life with grace, ease and confidence. When you learn to play an instrument, speak a language or to do a pose in yoga…it takes practice and skill to master that discipline. Once you become a skilled practitioner, you are not only able to utilize this area of expertise, you are able to enjoy it passionately and receive all the benefits it has to offer. Life is this way too. The more skilled you are, the more you can enjoy it fully and share its benefits.
Most people would like to improve aspects of their lives. But how many people have a clear goal, a clear vision and clear steps they are excited about taking? Upon completing this course…YOU will! And the best part is, you can then use the same process for improving any area you choose in the future.
I think this program could benefit anybody. It allows you to be more present in you own life and have more control over your emotions and choices. It gives you tools to respond to the world around you from your heart and your head rather than react to the stimuli that bombard you. It gives you the tools to really examine what you want and what you don’t want in your life. It also provides a sort of road map to plan your travels to a new way of joyful living.

Even now, I look back and find it hard to believe that an eight week program could completely change my life, but it has. I was feeling a little lost and thought it would help me get my act together after a long illness. After eight much anticipated weeks, my life is going in a completely different direction. My family and I are benefitting tremendously from what I have learned. Thank you for my wonderful new life!”

Optimal Life came to me at a critical time. Faced with a serious illness, I came looking for guidance and escapism. What I found was so much better. Rather than be given a bunch of beautiful flowers that would wilt and fade (what I had expected), I received something so much more valuable. Optimal Life gave me the tools to create an exquisite garden of my own, which will last forever and will help me through this challenge and the rest of my life.
The means to an optimal life are already in your hands. Too often people aspire to goals because they feel that they should do so. This saps the energy from both the goal and its attainment. Your life is more exciting, more challenging, more rewarding than the life depicted in a reality show. If you would have it, then reach out and grab this Program by the hand. You will find yourself being drawn into the life of your dreams, and you will discover that the hand you grasped was, ultimately, your own.

It has been like waking up from a coma that you were in for years. When you wake up there is this new awareness and appreciation for everything you see, hear, feel and smell.

The Optimal Life Program is a path to happiness, peace, health and self-realization. This Program will show you how to find your way back to yourself, your true self of love. It will help show you what is already magnificent in life and help you to find whatever it is you are seeking.

Chara and Richard have developed a wonderful, life-enhancing Program. I loved how they slowed down the process and made more space for questions, discussion and for understanding the process. I am so glad I was part of this Program.

Starting at a threshold, not knowing which yellow brick road to take that’s how I felt eight weeks ago. Optimal Life helped me to go the healthy, thoughtful, loving and meaningful road. I now enjoy the process of the trip.

The Optimal Life Program has brought the light back into my life. I feel it and my family and friends have seen it. I had been in a very dark place. I know this Program has helped me tremendously by bringing me back to the feeling of being the person I want to be.
– Nancy B.
The concepts that we were discussing were not necessarily new to me, as I’ve been exploring on my own for many years. However, the way Richard and Chara pulled the materials together in a focused way, one concept building on another, and thinking about them from new perspectives, was inspirational.

Welcome home! To me this phrase summarizes how this amazing course helped me. I’ve felt disconnected to myself for a while. I would take all the time needed for my spouse, children, family and friends for whatever they needed me to help them with, but never found that time for myself. This course taught me how to listen to my heart first, then consult with my mind for the best result. As a child, I always started with my heart, but somehow I lost my way by listening to all those outside voices. I am finally making my way back home and it feels so wonderful, joyous and peaceful. I am learning to listen to my heart and I can already hear it saying, “Welcome back – I’ve missed you!” Chara and Richard have an awesome way of presenting and talking about the material. Their different perspectives are so enlightening and powerful.

This eight week course is truly a journey of self-discovery! Richard and Chara provide a safe and compassionate environment in which to explore and assess how you want to live your most authentic and heart-centered life, and they provide tangible tools and steps to get you there. Although I’ve taken several other programs dedicated to present moment awareness, this course provides simple and effective tools, which ensure success. If you follow their steps, you’ll find yourself on a path toward living a high vibrational existence of love and gratitude!

Allowing external imprints and factors to determine how you feel about yourself means that you will always be on an emotional roller coaster…feeling good and happy when you are complimented or treated with kindness…and feeling bad or angry when you are criticized or treated unfairly. One of my favorite things Chara and Richard taught in this course is how to shift your focus and flip your negative/limiting thoughts to something more supportive so that you build a wellspring of internal positive energy that will guide you through each day.
If you are feeling like life has stalled a little and your dreams are becoming hard to remember, The Optimal Life Program helps clear your mind, focus your thoughts and set your heart, mind and spirit in the direction of your passions.

I appreciate where I am now! I needed direction in my life and didn’t know how to get there. By taking The Optimal Life Program I feel that I can attain my dreams. With present moment awareness and gratitude I have learned to breathe into my heart and mind and it has given me the insight to bring me to a whole new way of being and living.
