A Very Special Workshop on Healing, Happiness and Joy!

Sunday August 17, 2014  1:00-3:00 PM


Wendy Treynor, is a happiness expert, psychologist, inspirational speaker, self-help author, and social scientist of love and happiness who has published on depression and emotion in peer reviewed journals.  She received her Ph.D. in Social Psychology from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, before bridging social science and spirit in her first book, Towards a General Theory of Social Psychology.  She resides in Southern California, where she is founder and director of Healing Consulting. 

She'd rather lose her life helping humanity than die safely in secrecy, but author and psychologist Wendy Treynor nearly self-fulfilled that scenario. Surviving a life of rejection by family, bullying and pressure to commit corporate malfeasance in a Fortune 500 company, and the accompanying bullying, public ridicule and threats that ultimately led to her resignation, Wendy Treynor sought answers...and turned to doctoral studies to find out about the psychology of unethical behavior and why good people betray their conscience under social pressure. But in her quest for knowledge, the young doctoral student (PhD, University of Michigan, '04) was to meet another formidable challenger - late stage cancer. Destitute and alone, her story is about love, forgiveness...and recovery.

Treynor's presentations combine elements of her studies in destructive behavior and social pain with her own personal experience in the power of self-healing, and love. A popular presenter in Southern California, who privately coaches individuals through her Healing Consulting practice, Wendy Treynor is currently on a tour for her forthcoming book, The Gift of Cancer: Turn Your Tragedy into a Treasure…A Treasure Map to Happiness!

“Wendy Treynor had endured a lifetime of rejection. Why were some people so mean? What could be done about it? Going to graduate school to find out, she launched a quest to heal herself and others, but it later fell apart. Soon after earning her Ph.D., Treynor suddenly lost her career, money, health insurance and identity. She was so miserable she dreamed of getting cancer so she could make an easy exit from this world.

But everything changed when her wish for cancer came true. The disease sent Treynor on a journey of self-discovery, providing her with an enlightened understanding of the problem, its solution, and what it means to be happy. Weaving scholarship and story, this powerful book is more than just a compelling read. The Gift of Cancer is a transformational tool for anyone who wants to live a happier and more fulfilling life.”

  • My healing vision is to help millions and millions of people heal themselves.
  • Millions of people are suffering and they don't know why.  
  • What I share pinpoints the root of their suffering and how to end it.
  • People are searching for love outside themselves when the love they seek is to come from within.
  • Key Takeaway Concepts from Wendy Treynor's Teachings
  • Spirituality is the process of coming to rediscover who you truly are.
  • The socialization process, and its conditional love, has led to our forgetting. 
  •  To remember who you are, become your own everyday group or find an unconditionally loving everyday group.
  •  We look for acceptance outside ourselves when we don’t have our own.
  • Seeking acceptance outside ourselves is unfreedom whereas cultivating it from within is freedom.
  • We cultivate acceptance from within—that is, we cultivate self-acceptance— either by navigating ourselves into an unconditionally loving everyday group or by becoming our own everyday group. Since unconditionally loving everyday groups may be hard to find, a sure-fire way is to become your own everyday group.

  • Become your own everyday group: Take silent time alone with yourself each day (e.g., walking, yoga, or meditation, each morning, and, ideally, throughout the day. Working with the body and breath  allows us to clear our minds and release negative emotion.  We thereby acquire clear mind (present moment awareness)and see things as they are rather than clouded by emotion. Taking these breaks actually saves us time, plus it feels good. We become more productive, gain clarity, and solve problems quickly and creatively.
  • In this time alone, as your own everyday group, you come to remember what is true – who you are and what you want. You remember your dreams and begin to take steps towards actualizing them, reintroducing a sense of purpose, meaning, and direction into your life.
  • In this time alone, with practice, the steady state of peace you feel in “these breaks” becomes your True Reality, and the cacophony of the world fades into the background and becomes the unreal.  With this shift, you have found your unshakeable foundation, your source, your wellspring of positive emotion and endless unconditional support.  This peace and love that you cultivate for yourself is something you can draw upon, anytime, anywhere. With this shift, you realize what is true— the magnificence that You are, that Everything is—you realize self-acceptance.
  • With self-acceptance, now you have what you’ve longed for all your life—to be accepted unconditionally.  Able to supply it to yourself anytime, anywhere, you are happy, and you are free.
  • Once we realize self-acceptance, whether others accept us matters not. To them, we can say: “Here I am. Take it or leave it,” and then, go on our merry way.   Genuine self-acceptance is true happiness and true freedom--the only true happiness and freedom.
