This 1-day workshop will explore your potential to show up in your life with more confidence, radiance, and impact. Useful for anyone who feels that they are ‘hiding their light under a bushel!’
During the day we will be looking at the conditioning that keeps us limited in our ability to be present, authentic and comfortable in front of others, and learn transformative techniques for supporting our desire to be more radiant and effective in the world.
We will look at our own history of being seen and heard, and begin to reveal the forces that shape our behaviour around ‘being visible’. We will also look at how we face psychologically challenging thresholds, and what stops us from stepping over them. Simple grounding, connecting and expanding exercises are introduced to enhance our capacity to be present in any situation, and participants will have the opportunity to practice these and experience their beneficial influence.
Please wear comfortable clothes and flat shoes.
Price includes materials, delicious two-course lunch, and refreshments.
Registration from 9.00am-9:30am.
