Rhythms is for two kinds of people:
The Rhythms video series is affordable and efficient. If you are a professional (e.g., professional counselor, medical professional, pastor or church leader, etc.), Rhythms is an effective resource for those you serve. It becomes a tool that supports whatever goals for health and change have been established. Comparatively, the entire series costs the same as one, single in-person session with a professional psychologist.
And yes, we did mention spirituality! You do not need to hold Christian beliefs to take part in and benefit from this video series, but Rhythms is designed around Christian principles and this worldview is recognizable throughout Dr. Andy’s teachings.
When you sign up for the Rhythms video series, you will have access to 15 weekly modules from Dr. Andy Yarborough. Dr. Andy will guide you through the process of evaluating current life rhythms, then through the process of forming new, healthy rhythms for your life.
Additionally, each video is accompanied by a corresponding workbook that will give you space to work through the topic of each video module. This also becomes helpful when you are talking with a trusted friend, pastor, or mentor that may be helping you walk through this course.
There will be an active Facebook community devoted to Rhythm’s participants as another outlet for growth, and you will be able to discuss talking points or address questions with others going through the course. Support is a big part of this process, so we want to provide as much of that as possible.
We will introduce you to the content; you’ll learn what to expect from the Rhythms video series; and we’ll talk about how to use the workbook. Clear expectations are important because they set you up for success.
Module 1: A Wholistic Approach
Module 1 will introduce you to the bio-psycho-socio-spiritual model. You will learn how to think about health from a wholistic perspective and why it is necessary for healthy life rhythms.
Module 2: Lasting Change
Too many times, the changes that we make in our lives do not last. We start making changes, then eventually realize that we are back where we started. This can be frustrating and may discourage us from continuing to try. This module will give you a framework for how to think about lasting change and will impact how you engage the rest of the modules in the series.
Module 3: Know Your Why
Building on Module 2: “Know Your Why” will help you begin to understand meaning and purpose in your life and how living intentionally can help you thrive.
Module 4: An Introduction to the Rhythms of Wholistic Self-Care
Building on Module 3, Module 4 focuses on understanding the rhythms of self-care: what they are, what they do, and why they are important.
Module 5: Rhythms of Spiritual Self-Care
“Rhythms of Spiritual Self-Care” will help you see the difference between the spiritual disciplines as a performance and the spiritual disciplines as a way to position yourself to receive what God has for you. This module will help you create life-giving spiritual rhythms that last.
Part 1 will help you build sustainable rhythms of prayer and reading Scripture.
Part 2 will help you build sustainable rhythms of worship; community and confession; and tithing/giving.
Module 6: Core Spiritual Skill - Hearing God
Many people say that they do not know what God’s voice sounds like or that they “cannot hear God speak.” Hearing God speak is an important part of the Christian faith and is essential in our relationship with God. This module builds upon Module 5 and teaches you how to hear and discern God’s voice in your life.
Module 7: Rhythms of Physical Self-Care
Physical health can be a tough area for many of us. I have personally experienced the struggle of starting and stopping physical health routines. This module helps you create and sustain healthy rhythms of physical self-care in three main areas: exercise, nutrition/diet, and sleep.
Module 8: Rhythms of Psychological Self-Care
Psychological self-care is often neglected. Usually, this is not on purpose; we are just “surviving.” This module helps you reset and begin to take care of the three aspects of your soul: mind, will, and emotions.
Module 9: The Core Psychological Skill of Anchoring
This module gives you a core skill (i.e., anchoring) that builds on what you learned in Module 8. Anchoring equips you to overcome the chaos of a moment by calming yourself and refocusing on who and what is important.
Module 10: The Core Psychological Skill of Processing Emotions and Experiences
It’s one thing to take authority over a given moment, but you also need the ability to process that experience and learn from it. Building on Modules 8 and 9, this module provides you with another core psychological skill to do just that: learn from your experiences.
Module 11: Rhythms of Relational Self-Care
This module helps you understand healthy relationships and what you need to look for in a relationship. You will also learn the three different types of relationships that we all need and how to find and engage them.
Module 12: The Core Relational Skill of Forgiveness
Forgiveness is often a misunderstood concept and is not used enough in our relationships. This module teaches you what forgiveness is, what it is not, and how to forgive someone. The benefits of forgiveness are also discussed.
Module 13: The Core Relational Skill of Communication
Communication is essential to healthy relationships, but we often seem to struggle with successful communication. Too often, we get defensive or fight for being “right.” This module gives you a new way to think about communication and teaches you a method to practice communication effectively.
Module 14: The Core Relational Skill of Conflict Resolution
Sometimes, resolution to conflict does not look like we think. We often try to correct a conflict without listening to understand and without identifying what core values were violated or what boundaries were crossed. Building on the previous module of communication, this module of conflict resolution helps you understand the difference between a behavioral solution and a solution that is based on common values, interests or goals, increasing the likelihood that the solution(s) actually work.
Module 15: The Core Relational Skill of Building and Maintaining Trust
Trust is essential in healthy relationships, but we often have a limited perspective about what trust really is and how it impacts our relationships. This final module will help you understand the meaning of trust. Additionally, this module will give you a trust-based approach to assess relationships and know where to intervene to build trust and set healthy boundaries.
This 15-module program for creating and sustaining healthy Rhythms is $250
That is the cost of 1-hour session with a licensed professional. More specifically, you save about $2000 by purchasing Rhythms for $250.

Is Rhythms for me?
At The Well Clinic, we like to say, “YES!” Everyone can learn how to have better Rhythms in life. In fact, these rhythms have helped Dr. Andy grow and develop personally as a husband, father, friend, leader, psychologist…basically in every area of his life. Rhythms is for people who are dedicated to seeing positive change in their lives that impacts how they reach out to those around them. Each module comes with a workbook so that you can go through the exercise with Dr. Andy. We will also have an active Facebook Community – where you will have access to others working towards healthier life rhythms.
How many hours a week should I dedicate to this video series?
We recommend that you dedicate 2.5 hours a week. This includes watching the video, doing the workbook, and participating in the Facebook Community group. Keep in mind, though, that this really takes effort on a daily basis. The material you learn is not meant to be read and left behind. Rather, it’s meant to be ingested and lived on a daily basis.
Do I need to be a Christian to go through this video series?
While you do not need to hold Christian beliefs to take part in and benefit from this video series, Rhythms is designed around Christian principles and this perspective is recognizable throughout Dr. Andy’s teachings.
