9 Months to Success

Watch for Upcoming Dates Next Year in 2021
Masterminding, Releasing & More

Do you fill your life with motivational books and seminars and still find you can’t get on track? Too often, the advice we are given does not take into account individual programming and emotions. In this 9 month program, we will focus on moving through that programming so you may take released action; doing without resistance. In letting go of both attachment and aversion, we increase the probability of a positive outcome; but perhaps more importantly, enjoy the ride.

We will blend creative modalities with Sedona Method® releasing and Canfield success principles to set a course based on what you really want from life.

Participant Gains from 9 Months to Success:

-  More confident and comfortable with others

-  New relationship with my body, increased patience with self
-  Acceptance of self and increased focus on what’s really important
-  Improved relationships, gratitude and sense of satisfaction
-  Received unexpected money
-  Movement! Change! Enlightenment!!!

In-person meetings are currently held on the third or fourth Saturday of the month. Please join the meetup group for more information and to register.
