The Ecstasy of Surrender:
How Letting Go Can Transform Your Life

Are you longing for your life to be easier with more fun and less drama? Would you like to stop pushing and micromanaging, so you can relax? What if you could enjoy what you have instead of always lusting for “more?” What if you could live in “the zone,” propelled by intuition toward the right people and opportunities? If you answer “yes” to these questions and want lasting positive change, prepare to experience the ecstasy of surrender.

But isn’t surrender all about giving up? Not according to Dr. Judith Orloff in her new book, The Ecstasy of Surrender. Though surrender may seem counter-intuitive to success–it’s wrongly associated with weakness and defeat–knowing when to be assertive and when to let go is the secret to manifesting power, success, and intuition in all areas of life including work, relationships, sexuality, spirituality, radiant aging, and health. Otherwise you can sabotage success by being too pushy or a control freak. Surrendering removes roadblocks and the exhaustion that comes from “trying too hard”—and it helps you achieve goals more effortlessly and joyfully in the flow.

Learning to surrender is an invaluable skill for anyone who wants to live more fully in the moment and radiate an irresistible lightness of being. It’s a positive intuitive way of living that increases power, inner peace, and ecstasy.

In this talk/workshop Dr. Orloff will discuss how to:

• Surrender to success and stop pushing so hard you sabotage yourself
• Identify the 3 types of surrender and how to achieve them
• Surrender to your intuition
• Surrender obsessive relationships & unavailable people
• Avoid absorbing other people’s stress
• Surrender drama, resentments, and negative thinking
• Surrender to the wisdom of your body and sexuality
• Surrender your fear of illness, aging and death
• How to read body language and emotions
