The Five Principles for Transformational Change


A Daylong Workshop with Caitrìona Reed 

Saturday September 21, 2013


10am – 4pm



If you’re sick and you go to the doctor, and she fixes you, you’re happy right? You may also learn that healing is all about fixing symptoms. So it’s perhaps it’s natural that you expect the same from Meditation.


Of course, there’s nothing wrong with fixing symptoms. But why not change the whole system, since we can?


 The Five Change’s Principles for rapid transformation consist of an integration of practices drawn from multiple modalities.


They are a means to permanently transform the internal building blocks that perpetuate inner conflicts, limiting beliefs, and self-defeating habits and behaviors.


 The Five Changes are a system for rapid permanent change that transforms how you think and feel, by transforming the neural patterns, internal associations, and ingrained behaviors that have defined us and driven us.It  isn’t as complicated as it sounds. It’s actually really simple. That doesn’t mean that it’s simplistic, only that It’s both simple and effective.

In 1992, after teaching Vipassana retreats for a number of years, she was authorized as a teacher of Zen by Thich Nhat Hanh. She is co-founder of Manzanita Village Retreat and Five Changes. Her experience as a ‘woman of transsexual experience’ has led her to the belief that the big scary changes we may be afraid to make – in life, in our relationships, in business – are in fact the keys to our authentic liberation.
