A Message from Wendy.
Hello, and welcome to Dialogues in Self Discovery Center for The Option Method. My name is Wendy Dolber and I am the creator of DSD and Director of The Center. I am one of the first Option Method Teachers trained by Bruce Di Marsico. Bruce passed along powerful and life-changing insights to his students about the nature of unhappiness and happiness. His goal was to create a method that would empower each individual to be free from the suffering that is caused by beliefs that are at the heart of all unhappiness. His wish was that each of his students would embrace the teachings of The Method and pass them along to others. That is my goal is creating DSD and The Center.
The Option Method has been part of my life for over forty years, since I first met Bruce in the early 70’s. From the very first lecture, I was completely enraptured with the man and his teachings. As I heard him talk about the nature of unhappiness, the complexity of human, emotional experience began to unravel for me. I began to see the world with different eyes and ears – to see the cause and effect of happiness and unhappiness in a completely different way. It immediately changed my perspective and opened the door to peace, happiness and understanding in my life that I never dreamed possible.
I have always felt that The Option Method afforded me everything I needed to be the person I love to be, no matter what life throws my way and no matter how unhappy I had been in the past. I consider myself extremely lucky to have met Bruce when I did and experienced his teachings for so many years. My ability to practice Option Method for myself and teach others is the centerpiece of my life – my most precious resource. It’s my joy and privilege to pass that knowledge along to you so that you can pass it along to others.
Many of Bruce’s students have created very successful endeavors teaching Option Method in one form or another. While The Center is not affiliated with any of these endeavors, we celebrate all practitioners of Option Method around the world! Any teaching of The Option Method makes the world a better place. My wish, as a recipient of this priceless legacy directly from Bruce Di Marsico, is to present his teachings as they were imparted to me. By providing standardized training, I hope to provide the public with the invaluable resource of this powerful tool for happiness created by this extraordinary man.

Compassion is the bottom line in The Option Method. That’s the absolute requirement and if you ever want to learn to do it for yourself, you’ve got to be at least as nice to you as you would be to others. You’ve got to know when you’re ready to deal with something and when you’re not. And you’ve got to know when you don’t want to question your unhappiness and when you’d be glad to. When you get unhappy enough you’ll be glad to.[ Bruce Di Marsico ]
