Discover Your Natural Character

Have you found yourself wondering why some things seem so hard to deal with – that you keep falling into the same trap over and over again.

Like getting thrown when something you’re proud of isn’t recognized … or wanting to crawl into a hole when your buttons are pushed … or going into a rant over some injustice.

You find yourself reacting when you know better, hating when that happens!

We react because of who we are and how we’ve learned to protect ourselves, and these have become a natural part of us.

But that doesn’t mean you have to be a slave to them. By understanding your own Natural Character, you can learn to respond to any situation with clarity and inner strength.

In this workshop, you will learn more about who you truly are, Naturally. Depending on when you were challenged in your early life, you develop one of 5 ways, called Character Structures. You’ll learn:

  • The main characteristics of each of these 5 ways, called Character Structures
  • How these Structures play a role in your own life
  • How they both limit and strengthen you (because our greatest strengths are also our greatest weaknesses)
  • Your resulting strengths and limitations
  • How this new understanding can help you work through the difficult challenges in life


Part I: Over 2 days you will be introduced to Character Structures, and learn how they manifest in your own life. You will gain an understanding of what you can do to live better and stronger using your natural abilities.

Part II: This 1-day workshop explores ways you can support yourself through easy effective exercises and techniques you can apply on your own.

I liked how it helped me see and accept, and gain a better appreciation of my natural tendencies; that everyone has and develops natural talents. I came away with an understanding and acceptance of my talents, and of others in relation to myself.
