[Perhaps Mixed Company could offer these Toronto workshops
free to poor and homeless people.  Who among us has $240 bucks?
Content sounds interesting, though.--Tom B]

     *Free Yourself from internal and external oppressors and manipulators*


COPS IN THE HEAD explores the internal oppressors that are at work in the
psyche.  These internal oppressors are known as 'dark arrows' and can
sabotage you and cause you and those around you much grief.  They can cause
you to be stuck in a dependency triangle of victim-persecutor-rescuer.
They can make you emotionally co-dependent, overly attached, jealous,
unhappy or unsatisfied with your life, yourself and your accomplishments.
They include the voices in your head that tell you, 'You're stupid', 'You
can't do that', concepts that were placed there by your imagemakers -
parents, teachers or other authority figures during your formative years.
Learn which internal oppressions  are holding you back and workable
strategies for exchanging the dark arrows  for positive light arrows.

THE TYRANT/OPPRESSOR WHEEL explores the external oppressor energies that
are used against you to manipulate you.  Are you having the life sucked out
of you by a Lord/Queen Tyrant? Are you being manipulated by Anger/Rage or a
Brutal/Vicious energy in your life? Is your soft heart the victim of
Sly/Cunning?  Does your self-esteem allow a Persecuting/ Tormenting
oppressor to guilt you out?
Learn about the different tyrant energies on the Tyrant/Oppressor Wheel and
concrete strategies and techniques for identifying and dealing with them.

These techniques can be used by anyone to enhance your professional work
and your personal life.
