Happiness isn't about getting somewhere.

It is about returning to our true nature:

creative,

courageous,

and playful.

 
Speaker and Coach

I have dug deeply into neuroscience, psychology, and spirituality to find the best practices and understandings to keep your mind at its best. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Lara Patriquin, MD

Vistage and TEC speaker - physican and speaker

 

When I realized that I was much less happy as a doctor than as a medical student, I knew I had much to understand about the nature of the mind.  My quest for well-being led me to study neuroscience, psychology, and spirituality. 

  With this knowledge and insights, I help clients access a more creative, successful, and inspired version of themselves. 

I delight in sharing the insights and practices that have shaped my life and given me back what we Montréal folks call Joie de Vivre. 

I love more than anything else, to share this insight and practices as a group, either for Vistage/TEC members or in companies and hospitals. Growing together is the true development of Emotional Intelligence in the workplace. 

I am an associate professor at the University of Utah, where I practice and teach radiology. I am the mother of two adult kids and love all things to do with mountains. 

Working with Lara changed my life. Her understanding of the mind and piercing questions pull the rug from under my stress and unhappiness. I wish I'd had these insights earlier in my career!

I am on fire, my life is on fire, and my business is on fire.  

I am healthier, have more energy, feel happier, give better advice, and have an easy time doing things that used to feel like hard work. 

 

Working with Lara has taken me to the next level in all aspects of my life.

What is the 21 Day Challenge?

 

The Challenge answers two key questions:

​​

1) Why are we not nearly as happy as we would like to be? 

2) What can we do about it? 

Through an exploration of the bugs in our nervous system and the science backed practices we can do to correct for that, the challenge invites members to consider and take care of their minds in ways most have never considered. It shows us the exact spot where we fumble mentally and how we can rebuild a mind that works for us.

How we do it: Through fun, cartoons and laughter!

What is included:

  • 3-4 hour seminar

  • 21 daily guided meditations.

  • 21 follow up inspirational and educational emails.

  • Reflection journal
