Is Rhythms for me?

Rhythms is for two kinds of people:

  1. Rhythms is for you if you want to be healthier person. The patterns that you develop through Rhythms will support health and growth for you physically, psychologically, relationally, and spiritually. You will be a healthier person, spouse, parent, friend, leader…you get the point!
  2. Rhythms is for you if there is an area of struggle in your life. So many times, we address issues of physical illness, chronic disease, anxiety, depression, relational difficulties, spiritual struggles, and a sense of meaninglessness in life, but we do not have healthy life rhythms to sustain the changes we make. So, we find ourselves “right back where we started.” The rhythms you develop through this series will help you sustain the changes you are working so hard to implement!

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.

What You'll Learn in this Video Series:

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.

Introduction:

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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the three types of videos: Framework, Skills, and Mission/Meaning.
  • Begin thinking about strengths as well as growth areas related to how you think, what your skills are, and what your “why” is.

  • Begin setting goals for change and growth in your physical, psychological, relational, and spiritual health. These goals will guide how you think about your own journey through the Rhythms series.

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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand Levels of Change: What we believe has authority over what we think, feel, and do.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define self-care.
  • Understand why self-care is important.
  • Begin thinking about the strategy of sustainable of self-care versus a “shotgun” approach.

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.

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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn five questions to ask yourself to help you build trust that God is speaking to you.
  • Learn how to have patience in the process of discerning 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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand some of the science behind physical self-care and how taking care of our bodies impacts our soul, relationships, and spirit.
  • Develop and implement practical strategies that promote physical health through exercise, nutrition/diet, and sleep.
  • Develop a physical health “go-to” list that helps cue you when distracted.

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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define psychological self-care.
  • Understand four key components that impact psychological self-care.
  • Learn five helpful strategies to develop and sustain a healthy soul, such as gratitude journaling and creating a soul care “go-to” list.
  • Begin to label and process emotions in healthy ways.

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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the concept of psychological anchoring.
  • Learn how to practice the skill of anchoring.
  • Build a rhythm of practice that strengthens this skill so that you can use it appropriately in times of emotional and environmental chaos.

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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the concept of processing experiences.
  • Understand and articulate “the anatomy of an experience.”
  • Practice tolerating and attending to unwanted experiences in order to better understand the experience and yourself.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand and explain how relationships impact the way you experience yourself.
  • Know the three kinds of relationships that we all need and how to move towards finding 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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand and articulate what forgiveness is.
  • Understand and articulate what forgiveness is not.
  • Learn how to forgive someone in a way that sets you free from the power of unforgiveness and puts you on a path towards a more abundant life.

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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what communication is and its purpose.
  • Learn to practice the “Speaker-Listener” technique and to apply it in different types of relationships.

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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the core aspects of conflict resolution: Identifying the violated values and/or crossed boundary lines.
  • Develop the skills to identify common values, goals and interests and work towards a resolution related to these values.
  • Practice a step-by-step process to increase the likelihood that conflicts are resolved.

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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how Dr. Brene Brown’s BRAVING acronym relates to trust.
  • Define and describe the different types of boundaries needed in relationships.
  • Learn to apply the BRAVING model to your current and future relationships.
