Immunity To Change

Why is it we so often are firmly committed to some behavior or change, and inexplicably find ourselves NOT fulfilling our commitment – over and over? It’s not that we are lazy or stupid or don’t really mean it. It’s often that there is a hidden “immunity” system – a set of assumptions and competing commitments that are unconsciously preventing us from taking action.

By exploring a simple yet powerful “map” of our internal immunity, and following up with an arc of self-observations and new behaviors, we can release the hold of these limiting assumptions and achieve our goals.
