Having experienced and benefited from Engage You seminars in the past, the Valley News is bringing the seminar to our area for our readership, families, employees and clients.

"Engage You" seminars are entertaining while helping people achieve greater life success and happiness in their relationships, career, and personal growth and development. They will be held August 29-31 and September 19-21 at the Pala Mesa Resort.

Seminar leaders Don and Kathleen Thoren have been helping individuals as well as large corporate teams at Honeywell, Motorola, American Fence Company, General Electric, City of Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, IBM, Cooper Industries and Chase Bank achieve greater success for decades.

"We have had a lot of fun while breaking through some pretty amazing barriers to personal growth that we didn’t even know existed,"Valley News Publisher Julie Reeder said. "Since the seminar, I have felt like a new person and the people who attended with me have had lasting results because the seminar helps you change your thinking so that you can react differently to situations and life."

Below is a small glimpse of the 3-day workshop.

Positive Thinking Can Be Lousy!

Has anyone ever told you to "Just think positive!" Is it really that easy? Not always.

When our attempts to just "think more positively" don’t change our behavior, we judge ourselves and feel worse than before. Are there any perfect people out there who do exactly what they want all the time?

Most of us have a few areas in our life that we would like to change or at least improve, but no matter how hard we try to think positively we stay the same.

is a familiar example – You know the formula for losing weight. Eat less and exercise more. It makes sense, we agree with it, and it is clear. No more explanation needed. Easy, right?

So we start thinking positively... "I love celery," "I see myself in a skinny body," "I can lose weight". But it doesn’t work. The "lose weight" industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. Why is that? We’re stuck and we don’t know why.

Good news! If thinking positively isn’t changing your behavior, it’s not because there’s something wrong with you. It’s not because you’re weak and lack self-discipline.

It comes from a factory-installed automatic coping mechanism. This natural, in-born instinct to protect you from emotional and physical pain is controlling your behavior.

At a very early age, this instinct made decisions for you subconsciously. Those decisions morphed into your point of view (POV) and it still sticks to you like gorilla glue today.


1. Identify your subconscious "decisions" clearly and specifically.

2. Appreciate your brilliance and ability to make these "decisions" when you needed them.

3. Look at how they negatively affect your behavior in the present and what they have cost you in your personal and business life today.

Kathleen and Don encourage anyone who is ready to make a real change in their lives to go online to for more information in print and video, or call 602-315-5997. The seminar is guaranteed by the Thorens to be different from any other seminar you’ve ever attended.

The next seminar will be held at Pala Mesa Resort, August 29-31 or September 19-21, 2014. Can’t make the local one? Attend one in Tempe, Arizona at The Lake House, Oct. 10-12 or Nov. 14-16, 2014.
