Live Your Own Life Course Principles and Practices

Why Am I Offering This Course?

I was shown in a sacred ceremony how, in response to early trauma, I constructed a personality and then my life, to merely survive. The "self" I presented to the world was strategically built to perform whatever was expected of me. To be loved, accepted, to belong. I set aside my true self because that version of me was being hurt.

Smart decision. But then I forgot about it and believed I was the performer. The performer put together a life as best he could, and it wasn't all bad by any means. But neither was it mine.  And because it wasn't a true reflection of my soul it wasn't being fuelled by the vitality of Life itself. It was being fuelled by sheer willpower. The whole edifice came tumbling down sitting on a grassy hill one night, with the stars as my witness. I heard the words come out of my mouth, "My life hasn't been my own".

"This course was a game changer for me. Bruce has curated a unique, one of a kind experience for individuals who want to grow. This artfully crafted course gives you many different ways to see yourself fully, honestly, and without judgement. This is the catalyst which helped me move forward and embrace my own, true life."

Can You Relate? Ask Yourself...

  • Are you your own worst critic, beating up on yourself for the smallest perceived failure?

  • Have you ever wondered why you say "yes" when you mean "no"? 

  • Why do you tolerate mistreatment from the people who say they love you? Over and over again. 

  • Ever consider why you are so susceptible to addiction of one form or another? 

  • Why do you do things you don't really want to do? 

  • Why is it so difficult to ask for your needs and wants to be met? 

  • Have you ever found yourself on the verge of success and then sabotaged yourself?

  • Why the chronic fatigue? 

  • Maybe you keep finding yourself changing partners but no matter how many times you swap them out you land in the same feelings - of being unloved, unseen, and lonely?

  • Do you give yourself away in intimate relationships for fear of being abandoned?

  • Do you find it almost impossible to take an unpopular stand if you might be criticized for it? 

  • Is it almost impossible for you to relax, without cannabis or alcohol? 

  • Why is it so challenging for you to take good care of yourself?

If any of these questions strike a chord, Live Your Own Life: Principles and Practices, will not only give you the insights you need to liberate yourself from these deeply ingrained patterns, it will provide practices for you to reclaim your true nature and the life you've always wanted.

A Mission and a Promise

That night, when I returned to the ceremony, I prayed a short prayer for each of the other twenty individuals who were at the ceremony.  A very simple prayer: Just. Be. You. That's what the universe wants for you more than anything. It's why you're here. Because when we are being your true self and living your true, unrepeatable life, the universe is blessed. I dedicated the rest of my life, and my practice, to creating opportunities for beautiful souls like yourself to reclaim your true life.

This course is a manifestation of that prayer, extended to you.

"I am a pediatrician whose practice focuses on children’s mental health. I have struggled with my own childhood “fractures of love” that have resulted in personal challenges.  The 12 week “Live Your Own Life Course” offered by Bruce Sanguin was a beacon of light in my healing journey, contributing to self-discovery, healing and growth. From the very first session, I felt a profound sense of connection and support from the instructor and fellow participants. The course was not just a healing journey for my soul, but a profound awakening to the beauty and resilience of the human spirit."

"My heart is full with the challenges and inspiration you offered in this fabulous course. Since the beginning I’ve been sharing it with others and hope they may follow with you next fall.

I’m immensely grateful for these unique teachings and for the opportunity to apply and share them with the other course participants. I’ve opened to new understandings of my priorities in life as we deeply worked alone and together on clarity, courage and compassion! I feel blessed by your teachings and love, and by the presence of others willingly undertaking this work. For me, it’s another beginning…at 81!"
