    Consciousness: Well-Being & Intra-Personal Communication

    September 15, 2022 | 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM PST

    Program Fee: $20

    Description

    This webinar is for everyone who wishes to FEEL GOOD and to share this with others. It is for anyone who may be struggling with emotional or physical challenges including and most importantly FEAR. This seminar is for any person who wishes to create the next steps in their lives on purpose rather than by default. We can all manage what we perceive to be “suffering" in new ways. We can all remember who we are and draw upon that magic. We can all find freedom from that feeling of unease or generalized state of dissatisfaction. We can all look carefully at the conditioning and programmed patterns in our world that keep us tethered to our pain. We can all draw closer to an understanding that as we awaken to ourselves and our own authentic nature we have the power to become what it is we desire.
