Life can be a painful experience. We are born helpless and totally dependent on others for our comfort and survival. We suffer stress, trauma, anxiety, depression, addiction, conflict, war. But we can also experience joy, happiness, comfort, love, creativity, gratitude, and pleasure. Unfortunately, even when we have grown, we may not have learned how to keep ourselves in a good mood! We may have developed patterns of behavior that help us get along, but deprive us of the full possibility of aliveness. This show presents a shift in perspective that you may find helpful. "Buddy, can you paradigm?"

More about the company

Sheldon Wagner MD, retired after the practice of psychotherapy for more than 50 years, claims that the current "epidemic" of "Mental Illness" is misnamed and misunderstood. Many of these disorders, from which we suffer, are more usefully understood as "emotional difficulties" and are a consequence of unhealthy education and management of emotion. His mission is to present a shift in the understanding and education of emotion.


Land acknowledgement

This continent was occupied by various indigenous peoples until a European named Christopher Columbus, who was trying to get to Asia, arrived in 1492, and mistakenly identified the native residents as "Indians", a name they have been trying to rid themselves of ever since. In 1497, another European named Amerigo Vespucci arrived and believed he had discovered a new continent which he called the New World. In 1507 America was named after him. Europeans occupied North and South America and displaced and mistreated the previous residents whose descendants are still trying to recover.
