Chances are your childhood may not have been all rainbows and butterflies. Mine wasn’t! In fact one of my childhood stories I told myself landed me in the hospital (repeatedly) because I believed I was only worthy of love and attention when I was sick. It wasn’t good for me OR my family. That’s why I’m so excited to introduce you to the wisdom of Ira Israel. He’s here to teach us how to overcome harmful and repetitive childhood stories and cultivate a life bursting with happiness and contentment.

A best-selling author and counsellor, Ira is committed to helping people get radiant happiness and build deep connections. He holds graduate degrees in psychology, philosophy and religious studies, and is a licensed professional clinical counselor, marriage and family therapist and mindful relationship coach. His book How To Survive Your Childhood Now That You’re an Adult: A Path to Authenticity and Awakening, guides readers through a healing journey that addresses their most painful childhood scars and repetitive negative stories that are holding you back. Acclaimed by hundreds, Ira has helped people stop obsessing over their pain and start creating authentic relationships. His video series (among others) A Beginner's Guide to Happiness, teaches people how to create new stories that transcend the old ones in order to cultivate authentic compassion and a life beyond your wildest dreams.
