The Power of POSITIVE SUGGESTION** with Jean Fain
Saturday, October 29, 2-4pm ~ You think about changing for the better, but you don't really believe you can. If only someone would give your unconscious mind a positive suggestion, then maybe change would come more easily. Actually, someone can: you. Positive suggestions have the power to change how you think, feel and behave, and, believe it or not, it's easier than you think to give yourself suggestions and start making the very change you've been wanting to make. In this 2hr workshop, see for yourself what a difference positive suggestions make, then learn how to give yourself personalized suggestions for improving your health and well-being, boosting self-confidence, advancing your career. $25 ~ preregistration required
