Welcome to Dos Manos Wellness!
My name is Gregg Gonzales and Dos Manos Wellness has been a passion of mine for many years, taking on many forms and many evolutions. What has remained a constant, however, are three simple philosophies I live by in all aspects of my work:
1. Keep it simple
2. Make it effective
3. Always be mindful
Dos Manos Wellness is comprised of these initiatives:
Joyful Living Workshops for individuals or groups – This nine-week, interactive workshop is based on the Eight Pillars of Joy, created by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. These two Nobel prize winners—one, the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people, the other, the leading spokesperson for the rights of black South Africans who drew national attention to the horrors of apartheid—spent a week together, simply conversing, trading stories, and attending to the issue of finding joy in the context of our contemporary world. Finding truth in many different fields, from psychology to theology to their own personal experiences, these two men agreed on a set of positive qualities that can help people experience joy not as a fleeting emotion, but as an enduring part of their lives – hence the creation of the Eight Pillars of Joy. The intention of the Joyful Living Workshop is to teach my clients how to transition from the mindset of seeking happiness to seeking joy by learning how to achieve intrinsic happiness through taking steps that will ultimately lead you to a more balanced, wellness-focused, and joyful life.
Serving Well – Business Mentoring for Wellness Providers – Both accessible and affordable, the intent for my mentoring program is to expand the positive message of massage therapy through personal insight, experience-driven advice and deep discussion. My primary objectives are to help wellness providers overcome their challenges, help put them on a path towards long-term success in the industry, and grasp a deeper understanding of their work while changing attitudes and lives for the better.
