About Legendary Living Institute
Innovative Multi-Format Educational Programs for Individuals, Couples, Groups, Churches, and Organizations
At Legendary Living Institute, we know that the value of our lives is directly related to the quality of relationships we experience at home, in community, and the workplace. We are committed to providing innovative educational programs, infectious inspiration, and epic solutions to all who seek the majestic lives and relationships God has in store, including individuals, families, communities, organizations, teachers, pastors, and those licensed in the helping professions.
We specialize in faith-based teaching, mentoring, and coaching, with a focus on personal growth and development, men’s and women’s issues, relationship education, and mind/body health. Our experiential, multi-media and multi-learning-style programs are effective for men, women, groups, churches, and organizations.
Breaking Through Barriers of Communication
Due to particular individual associations with and a general overuse of key terms, the meaning of profound concepts, including scripture, is often lost. We utilize visual graphics, symbols, and metaphors with creative language in a multi-media format in order to break through this barrier of communication. The integration of scripture occurs at a strategic point within the course to encourage a new personal understanding and experience of the Word.
Insight and Self-Awareness Development
We are passionate about supporting individuals in their unique path toward insight and self-awareness. We understand the importance and value of the clues provided by repetitive life patterns and relationships and how to insightfully harness our brains, bodies, internal, and external environments in order to change patterns that no longer serve us. We believe in the capacity for transformation that is built into the human spirit and physiology.
Thought Leaders and Pioneers
Our innovative courses integrate significant information from many fields of study. Students learn why we sometimes feel stagnant or stuck in our lives or in certain personal relationships. We specialize in helping people recognize nonconscious loops of thought, beliefs, expectations, and inherent relational styles learned early in life when we did not have full access to wisdom and intuition.
We understand the impact of the protective part of our brain and how it can influence our present experience by causing unwanted consequences in current relationships – including personal, social, and professional.
Empowering Information From Peripheral Fields
With new insight about our brains and bodies, including empowering information from peripheral fields such as neuroscience and microbiology, and the recognition of influencing factors from internal and external sources and environments, we help individuals find the keys to their unique purpose.
For those who have had a difficult relationship staying on track with the principles and values they hold dear, especially in relationships with those closest to them, which is often the case, there is an answer. We are born with brain dominance of a protective nature…in essence, a fear-based brain. It is our gift as believers to transform our mind and bodies into a different way of being, feeling, and thinking. Emotional and spiritual freedom is our heritage.
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them. — Hebrews 8: 10-11
Gain Clarity, Perspective, and Focus
With renewed clarity, perspective, and intention, individuals are then equipped to demonstrate the beliefs and behaviors important to them, to forge new habits and create healthy internal and external environments to support their goals, desires, and dreams. Experiential and mindful-based practices, exercises, and tools are utilized.
