Speaking Friday is the author of The Ever-Loving Essence of You, Jamie Lerner.  She is a therapist and social worker from Barrington who believes that people are happier when their relationship with the world and themselves is non-judgmental.  Her talk is entitled “The Art of Allowing.”
She will discuss the joys and freedom to move about the world without having a point of view (judgment) about what anyone else is saying or doing. She believes that everyone is allowed to choose what is best for themselves and when we tend to what is best for our own selves and have clarity for ourselves, we care not what others have chosen for themselves. The entire point of allowing is to feel good as we flow from one moment to the next creating relationships along the way.
Jamie Lerner can put a fresh spin on just about anything that anyone throws her way. Her unique and masterful ability to re-frame even the most difficult situations is astounding. All of a sudden your biggest nightmare becomes your greatest pleasure as she helps you sift through the contrast and find that small opening of light that quickly becomes your greatest jumping off point for clarity.  She is easily able to untangle the issues at hand and move right along into helping facilitate a solution-based platform for creative, productive, good-feeling collaboration and change. Jamie can most often be seen working with individuals, children, adults and couples as well as with small groups. She never positions herself as the expert of anything and is always reminding you that it is you who knows best for yourself ALWAYS.
