"Control" is used in the sense of Control of Your Life and is achieved paradoxically by NOT trying to control others. Genuine, deep and enlightening 'control' is achieved as much by 'letting go' as any determined, focused, visualisation techniques. It's a balance of two energies -- the masculine assertive and the feminine collaborative. Understanding that balance, and getting the balance right is crucial to your health and wellbeing.
As confirmed by decades of solid research by Sir Prof. Michael Marmot, Prof. Len Syme of the University of California and others, the degree of control you have over your life, or conversely how much other people or circumstances control you, determines how long, or short you live, and how well, or ill you will be.
In our workshops we go into detail as to how family, friends, employers, communities and societies all contribute to the relationships and expectations that play a major role in determining the health and wellbeing of individuals.
It is a glib statement to parrot that "we are all individuals" when so few of us are easily free of the opinions and expectations of, and commitments to others.
