Design Your Life Living True to Your Highest Ideals

For everyone.

If what you most want seems just beyond your reach, join Lauren Handel Zander, creator of The Handel Method® and cofounder of Handel Group®, and Laurie Gerber, expert coach, for a program that leaves no stone unturned. In their inimitable, honest, funny, deep, and no-holds-barred style, Lauren and Laurie wake you up to your dreams by teaching you the key to happiness, self-esteem, and confidence: Personal Integrity®—aligning your head (plan), heart (desire), and body (actions).

In this program, you learn how to

  • Uncover what you really want
  • Debunk your self-sabotaging theories
  • Keep promises to yourself that are a match for your dreams
  • Have difficult conversations
  • Continue to evolve by learning how to tell the truth
  • Shift your personality and still be you
  • Identify and understand your life lessons
  • Design your life mission.

Lauren and Laurie use lecture, Q&A, highly dynamic and interactive small-group work, and writing exercises to clarify dreams, current realities, promises, and consequences. If you are ready to do the work, this program is the change you’ve been wishing to see.

Required reading Lauren Handel Zander, Maybe It’s You: Cut the Crap. Face Your Fears. Love Your Life.

Note Please download and complete this required homework assignment due before the program begins. The homework is deep, profound––and, yes, takes a bit of time. However, the assignment will give you a roadmap to what you truly want in your life and what is standing in your way. From crafting dreams for 12 areas of your life, describing your parents’ personality traits and how they play out in you, to writing out the memories that have shaped you, this assignment will rock your world. In order to give Lauren and Laurie time to review your work, the entire assignment is due August 30, two weeks before the program. Please email your completed homework as an attachment to coach@handelgroup.com with subject line: Kripalu Homework, and please also bring a printed copy of the homework with you to the program.

If you are registering on or after August 30, please note the following: This course involves an extensive homework assignment. For a complete experience of this course, it is crucial that you complete the homework assignment prior to your arrival and bring a printed copy with you. If you are unable to complete the assignment, please fulfill as much as possible and know that your experience might be different from those that have completed the assignment.
