Join Judy for
Thrive Evenings @ Helen Famulare Spa Rejuvenate

Would you describe yourself as thriving, treading water, or are you basically toast?

Between the demands of your home life, the work load at your job, and your own inner critic, even with the best of intentions it’s a challenge to tend to yourself in meaningful ways. 


The good news is that no matter where you start, you can learn simple practices that make a huge difference to your life. 

Life Coach, Judy Garfinkel, and Helen Famulare, owner of Spa Rejuvenate, invite you to join us and learn how. This series of evenings will highlight important components of thriving.  


There will be wine. And cheese!

P.S. Positivity: Shake the Fake Blues is NOT about forcing yourself away from difficult  feelings. Because, life happens, and - grief, pain loss, sorrow, anger, are real.


Is Your Inner Critic a Bully?

We all have an inner critic. It jabs, teases, orders, whines, wheedles, gives ultimatums, suggests we "should" or "need to," and, even pretends to be a neutral observer of reality. Sometimes the inner critic shows up as a sensation in your body - a feeling of dread, collapse, or tightness. When it takes over, you may avoid action, retreat, procrastinate, or push yourself to exhaustion. 


What if it didn't have to be that way?


Research has found that we experience greater self-confidence, motivation, and improved relationships in our personal and professional lives when we learn to sustain higher levels of positivity and reduce the negativity whenever and wherever possible.


Come join me to learn about how.


We‘ll discuss the critic’s many forms. And, I'll describe the 4 conditions for working with your inner critic and a 3-step process for transforming your critic so you can live and work with greater joy and ease.

Freedom is the opposite of feeling constrained.


Because we’re human, issues in our lives can lead to feeling stuck or confused.  Typically, we turn to our intellect to “solve” the problem, which works until it doesn’t anymore.


In Dance Your Way to Freedom, I will guide you in movement improvisations to help you tap into your vast emotional intelligence through the language of your body – sensing, gesture, visual metaphor and action.


Come join us as we experiment with listening to what your body has to say in a safe, joyful and relaxed environment.


What participants say…


 "Judy’s structure for this class created privacy, freedom and intimacy for a safe exploration into the unknown. And, it totally worked!"  – D.E.


" Judy didn't ask me to consider large issues all in one swallow - but once I identified what the issue was the pressure was off...the small gestures and sorting images was not at all overwhelming and it guided me to be able to explore freely and simply." - Anonymous

Boost Your Confidence

          Bounce Up, Bounce Back and Fly High!


It's a rare person who needs less self-confidence.  That's because feeling confident is a must for tackling new situations, for feeling good about yourself and for leading a successful life-any life.


Learning how to nurture and access self confidence can seem like a mystery, but not anymore...  These three interactive, experiential classes will teach you the 3 key elements of confidence. You will get a picture of your personal “trampoline,” and leave with strategies for sustaining your self-confidence.



When?  Saturdays from 10:30 - 12:30.

             Sept 26, Oct..3 & Oct. 17, 2016
