BC - The ReInvented Self

Hi, I’m Lee Hayden, physicist, website owner, manager, and author .  I am pleased to welcome you to the Hayden Center For Educational Excellence.  The Hayden Center  offers students a variety of educational programs of study, each  program leading to an opportunity to  experience a unique  form of  lifestyle  enrichment.  Click here to review the available programs of study, courses, durations, and costs.  Contact Lee Hayden at 707-945-1294 for additional information.


The need to live an enriched lifestyle is deeply embedded in every human being.


Possibly, even since adolescence, you have realized  that achieving a good life can’t be accomplished by  default but must be invented. You may have attempted to follow the numerous imperatives of countless self-help books but most imperatives seem to fade with time.  You may have attended seminars. You may have  accepted the concept that life is a journey along the road less traveled. You may have explored and possibly made  improvements in intimate relationships, career, finances, health, spirituality, knowledge of the world.  You may have knowledge of Maslow’s hierarchical chart of human needs.  In fact, you may have invented a good life for yourself and family. You have good reason to be proud of who you are and the life you have invented.


Achieving an enriched lifestyle generally requires re-inventing your existing lifestyle.


This course explores and clarifies your present lifestyle and prepares you for selecting one of the three major programs of lifestyle enrichment


After completing this course, the student selects a personal lifestyle enrichment program from the following:  self-actualization, personal true-self, or community true-self.  (Alternatively, the student may select an individual course such as this course.)  Programs are implemented as free brief courses and associated fee-based short courses.  The Hayden Center provides the educational environment that supports the student’s attainment of the selected lifestyle enrichment program or coursework.


Achieving an enriched lifestyle requires knowledge of the personal growth process.


The present purpose is to discuss “The Re-Invented Self”.  This free brief course summarizes the associated fee based short course which is conducted  face-to-face.  I’m Lee Hayden and I commit  to making both brief and  short courses of high quality and exceptionally beneficial to you.


This course has no prerequisites.  However, you will be asked to review several brief courses during this brief and the associated short course.  For best results, you may elect to enroll in the  short courses that are referenced.












































The universe is almost 14 billions years old, very large, and continues to produce increasingly complex organizations of matter.  Starting with a big bang, the universe produced quarks, which organized into protons and neutrons, which organized into atoms, which organized molecules, etc., which finally organized into  stars, planets, mountains, rivers, skunks, and Man.  Man is the most complex organization of matter known to exists. More specifically, Man’s brain is the most complex organization of matter produced by the universe.  Everything produced by the universe is called reality. Thus, Man is part of reality, alone,  surrounded by chaos,  and in the situation called the human condition.


The purpose of the universe appears to be the production of increasingly complex organization matter.  Each organization of matter appears to be pulled into a more complex organization of matter  by some sort of energy exchange.  The human brain has an estimated three billion neurons each of which is an organization of matter with an associated function.  The associated functions work together to form a network called the human mind.









We assert that satisfaction of Maslow’s highest level, i.e., self-actualization, brings a high level of happiness, joy, and meaning.  Like all other levels of need, achievement of  self-actualization, we human beings  encounter events in life that are the source of sadness or pain but we have superior resources to address those events. [TBC]




Our pupose is address achievement of self-actualization using Maslow’s chart and assuming safety and physiological needs have been satisfyed.  Of course, there are populations of people and individuals for which safety and physiological needs have unforetunately not been met. [TBC]
















































Since Man is part of reality, the universe became conscious with the birth of Man.  Using his/her conscious intelligence, Man is producing objects that are part of reality.


Neurobiology and related sciences have made many dramatic breakthroughs in  knowledge of how the brain functions  and how that knowledge can help us live better lives.  From the perspective of the SHAL website, neurobiological  knowledge iw the foundation for the following life enhancements and benefits:


  1.  Better  sleeping habits,
  2. Increased personnel self-esteem,
  3. Reduction of stress
  4. More successful dieting,
  5. Improved mindfulness skill,
  6. Improved creative thinking skills
  7. Improved memory:.


What we know from neurology

 has the potential for changing your life.    



A person re-inventing their life  is in the process of examining their own life relative to Maslow’s presentation of our human needs  and is seeking self-actualization.  Maslow’s presentation of the human condition and human needs is in the form of his well-known hierarchical chart of the human needs shown below:









Maslow’s chart suggests a path for examing and resolving unsatisfied needs, i.e., from bottom to top of the chart.  This path is suggested but not rigidly followed.


The process of re-inventing your life is as follows:


1. Initial Being.  Your initial being is your present state of being. Identify possible concerns  associated with your career, intimate relationships, finances, feelings of inferiority, health, spirituality, attitude about the world, and your intellectual self.  Place  concerns and issues in appropriate Maslow need category.  For example, concers about intimate relationships belong in the Maslow Love and Belonging Need category.  Feeling of inferiority belong to the Maslow Esteem Need category.  Health concerns  belong to the Maslow Physiological Needs category.


The suggested path for addressing these concerns is health, intimate relationships, and feelings of inferiority.


2. Commitment:  Making conscious and deliberate choice to change your life and find fullment, no matter the obstacles.


3.  Doing: Create your life by declaring what you want for yourself, defing your goals, and devising a concrete planot make it happen.  Identify the actions you can take to ensure that you thrive in all areaas of your life.


4. Visualization:  Visualize our life as you want it to be.


5. Becoming:  Create accountability and structure to break old habitsd and gain the disscipline requited to live life to your fullest potential.


6.  Being: Experience your life at a new level
