The Relationship Puzzle: Myths and Secrets

If you’re like I am, you’ve sometimes been confounded, perplexed and bewildered by the relationships in which you’ve found yourself. I know that for me, growing up was one big question – especially when it came to interacting with others; oftentimes significant others like parents, children, spouses or bosses. I read a tons of books & articles listing the do’s and don’ts of being in relationship, and I heard all kinds of differing advice from professionals. But still my questions would persist, nagging me on to find solutions, which could bring me real happiness, comfort & peace.

About the writer: Dr. Laurie Pappas

About Dr. Laurie Pappas Hi. I’m Laurie Pappas, and I’m just like you, having coped with fear, stress, anger and pain. Now I know that it’s possible to reach a place of wholeness and peace, and I realize that a higher level of health and wellness is more achievable than I ever before believed. I grow and learn more every day, and I am eternally grateful for the amazing journey I’ve been on and continue to experience. I’m an educator, counselor, speaker, writer, trained mediator and life coach. I live and teach using ancient psycho-spiritual principles, which have proven themselves to me time and again. In 1990, I had the good fortune of co-founding the Metro Detroit Center for Attitudinal Healing, a non-profit center, whose activities I directed for 16 years. I have been counseling for 20 years, using the principles I have come to know and honor. During this time, I’ve taught classes and workshops, and trained support group leaders, in addition to writing articles for a large Detroit metaphysical newspaper. As a young adult, while I was working in elementary education, I began my search for the underlying causes of disharmony and discord among school children. Several years later, community service work for the hungry and homeless brought my attention to the role that the mind plays in creating abundance or scarcity, peace or conflict. In addition, my own life trials sent me searching for solutions to inner peace and harmony in my personal life and in the lives of people in general. I was eventually led to the field of Guidance and Counseling and later to the study of Metaphysics, where I was finally able to obtain satisfying answers to my questions, and workable solutions to many of life’s challenges. I had the privilege of being program chairperson of the 7th Annual Conference on Nonviolence, Peace and Prosperity in Detroit, in the spring of 2005, during which time I worked with the wonderful people involved with the Martin Luther King Center in Southeast Michigan. I’m committed to the inspiration and growth of all those with whom I have the honor of working, and to the creation of cultures grounded in harmony, wellness, compassion and peace. My greatest joy comes from sharing this journey with you. I know that my most powerful strength lies in the bonds I make with you, for the purpose of healing ourselves and our planet. I’m honored to have your presence here, and look forward to our valued connection.

The Gift of Self Care

The Gift of Self Care

The Gift of Self Care



It’s that time of year again! It’s the time when we prepare ourselves, consciously or unconsciously, for endings and beginnings, celebrations and hibernations. The end of year holidays are a time when our thoughts turn to family, celebrating, time off from work and gift giving, although not necessarily in that order. For many people, and for many reasons, this time of year and the holidays are more stressful than they are pleasurable.

SACRED SERVICE



Faith in God is the same as Faith in Love, Acceptance, Peace, and Joy. We think Love and Peace are weak and mushy. PEACE is powerful to effect change. Any action in your life taken from a place of stress, is violence against yourself. Your foundation of inner Peace, Love and Joy is crucial in shaping your life. Have faith in Love.
