Archetypes are inherited set of behavioral and thought patterns present in every person’s unconscious. This course gives us a thorough understanding of our behavioral patterns leading us to a more balanced life and to becoming the hero of our own lives.

Four sessions, total of 12 hours.

This workshop has no prerequisites.

In life, we sometimes do things and repeat behaviors that we do not appreciate. By understanding the games theory, we can see the impacts of our repeating patterns on our relationships. In this workshop, you will reach a new degree of awareness about your behavior and other people’s behaviors, learn to recognize the behavioral games played by other people and yourself, and learn how to respond to these games and manage the impact that they have on your life.

If you want to take your life to the next level and go beyond the limits you learned throughout your life, get help from hypnotherapy. Since childhood, we have been conditioned by the direct and indirect messages we have received from our family, school, and our social environment. Some of our negative core beliefs are the result of these messages. In this course, you learn some hypnotherapy techniques that can help you in recognizing and changing those unwanted core beliefs to reach a better and a happier life. Hypnotherapy has been effective for academic success, sports, quitting addiction, weight loss, sleep improvement and many more.

How to save ourselves from yearning for “the best version of me?” Hearing our inner voice constantly asking for more and more! how to be “enough?” How to save ourselves from the “self-blame?” How to accept ourselves as we are?

Every person needs self-love and as long as we don’t accept ourselves and fail to be kind to ourselves, we won’t be able to love ourselves.

In this 3-hour course, you will learn techniques on how to be kind and loving to yourself that will lead to a happier life.

  • positive review  در زندگی‌ هرکسی نقاط عطفی وجود داره که زندگی‌ فرد را به صورتِ قابل توجهی‌ تغییر میده. یکی‌ از این نقاط عطف در زندگی‌ من آشنایی با لاله بود. لاله با علم و عشقی‌ که به کارش داره زندگی‌ِ هر فردی رو که روبروش قرار می گیره تغییر میده. به من کمک کرد که آدم بهتری باشم و با نقاط قوت و ضعفم آشنا بشم و اونا رو به بهترین شکل تغییر بدم. راهِ خود شناسی‌ راه طولانیه ولی‌ حضور لاله این راه رو هموار و قابل عبور کرده. ازت ممنونم که هستی �

  • positive review  اين پستي است كه امروز، در صفحه شخصي خودم هم، گذاشته ام: در كشاكش كارهاي جاري، دو روز گذشته شنبه و يكشنبه را در كارگاه " خود اگاهي" Joy awareness center به هدايت خانم لإله مهراد شركت كردم. در اين دوره به تكنيك هايي آشنا شدم كه بهتر به حال و احوال خودم و تا حدودي اطرافيانم پي ببرم، و در مورد خودم ( نه ديگران) چگونه بتوانم زندگي خود خواسته را بر اساس سيستم ارزشهايم، پيش ببرم. و يا به قول معروف "زندگي ( روش زندگي)، يك انتخاب است، اگر دوستش نداري، عوضش كن" اما انچه كه در اين كارگاه چشمگير بود، تبحر حرفه اي خانم لإله، و عشق عالمانه و بنيادين وي به انسانها بود. در يك كلام، مهرباني، صفا و صميميت در طي دوره، موج ميزد. و حجم مطالبي كه اموختيم، فراوان. شيوه اداره كارگاه، حضور و نظارت قابل لمس و همه جانبه وي، و نهايتا ياري فعالانه به ايجاد ارتباط عميق انساني، و دوستانه بين اعضاء گروه چشمگير بود. و اين خود،تبلور خوب و مناسبي از "تيم سازي" و " حضور" همه جانبه و فعال اعضا، بطور مستمر بود. خوشبختانه ايشان در لوس انجلس مستقر هستند، و كارگاههاي ديگري نيز در دست دارند. و حيف است، ازين فرصت بيشتر استفاده كنيم. يك نكته جالب، ايشان در پايان جلسه تصريح كردند، " هركس اهدافي را كه از شركت در جلسه داشته، نيافته، ميتواند تمام شهريه پرداختي را دريافت كند". سابق به اين ميگفتيم چي "هندوانه، به شرط چاقو" ولي خداييش هندوانه ايشان حسابي قرمز، شيرين و ابدار بود. و تفكر عمومي ان بود كه كيفيت، بسيار فراتر از حد بالآي انتظار بود.

  • positive review  When I was 18 years old, I met Laleh Mehrad. I could participate in her classes and it was perfect for me. My life change completely and when I compare my life after 18, I can see my changes in a good way. I could know myself and I could understand what I want. Her classes could help me to understand that, when I want something, I can take it. My purpose is achievable for me, because I use a lot of Technics that Laleh Mehrad taught me in her classes. I learn a lot of Technics for having a good life. Sometimes I don't know what can I do for my issue, immediately I will use her teaching. I could abandon my past and I started to do the best things for my future. At the end I can say that her classes are perfect and all of the time I'm thankful of her. She is one the best psychologists in the world and I'm proud of her. Her love and her kindness to people are unique. I love her and I wish her the best things. She deserves the best things in the world. Fereshte

  • positive review  To everyone who would like to be freed from anxiety, stress and every kind of lingering problem and desires to grow, All adults, old and young, will definitely benefit tremendously from any of Laleh's workshops. I was referred to her first workshop by a friend, and by using one of her techniques in the workshop, I was able to eliminate a 55 year old fear in half an hour. She attends to each and everyone's need individually and will help you every step of the way. Her workshops build on each other and address different aspects of our physical, spiritual and material lives. Her workshop attendees include: doctors, researchers, professors, engineers, students, name it. EVERYONE leaves the workshop happier, lighter and more energetic and optimistic. I highly recommend her to everyone. I am looking forward to hearing her name mentioned in gratitude at every gathering throughout the Persian community. She is one of a kind. God bless you for helping us grow.

  • 5 star review  Pegah Jokar: Pegah Jokar: همیشه خدا رو رو شکر میکنم به خاطر حضور موثر لاله توی زندگیم بدترین اتفاق زندگیم از دست دادنِ عزیزترین و تنهاترین حامی زندگیم یعنی، بابام بود و این اتفاق باعث شد من با لاله و دوره هاش آشنا بشم و این یه پاداش خیلی بزرگ بود که همیشه فکر میکنم یه کادو بوده از طرف بابام اولین دوره رو که شرکت کردم احساس سبکی و راحتی خیلی خوبی داشتم، بعد از مدتها به ارامش رسیده بودم انقدر این آرامش و حس خوب زیاد بود که مصافت برام مهم نبود و هر دفعه برای شرکت در دوره های لاله از کیش میرفتم تهران و با کلی انرژی و دست پر برمیگشتم. دورهای بعد ولی فقط ارامش نبود ، کنکاش بود و تلاش برای شناخت خودم ، شناخت خودِ واقعیم و ساختن زندگیم هر دفعه یه چیز جدید تو وجود خودم کشف میکردم، بعضی وقتها متوجه یه توانمندیهای تو خودم میشدم که در حالت عادی باورش برام سخت بود، و بعضی وقتها زخمهایی تو خودم میدیدم که از نزدیکترین آدمهایی زندگیم بهم رسیده بود و بدون اینکه کاری براش بکنم و بدون اینکه حتی بدونم چرا ،روشو پوشونده بودم که کسی نبینه. انقدر خوب و روی اون زخمارو پوشونده بودم که خودمم فراموش کردم کی و کجای وجودم زخمی رو پنهان کردم ، فقط احساس درد مبهمش رو همیشه حس میکنم لاله، همون فرشته ای که همیشه مدیونشم کمکم کرد و تو این چند سال پا به پا باهام اومده تا دونه دونه این زخمها و آسیب ها رو پیدا کنم و مرحمی روشون بزارم نمیدونم از کدوم تجربه ام بگم پیشرفت خیلی زیادم در زمینه کاری و مالی یا تغییرات اتفاقهای خوب این چند وقت اگه خیلی خلاصه بخوام بگم باید بگم: آشنایی با لاله بهترین اتفاق و حضورش تو زندگیم بهترین پاداش زندگیمه ، چون زندگی منو خیلی تغییر داد
