Become Unlimited
April 10, 6:30-9:00 p.m.
The path to becoming an unlimited being is explored in this workshop. Learn what has been holding you back- in a space of doubt, fear, and unworthiness. Learn what simple steps you can take to remove this influence so you can make decisions from a soul space- in belief, empowerment, and truth so that the past no longer impacts your future. When we connect to our inner wisdom and see our truth clearly we can step into our unlimited self and let our self be guided with ease and grace.

Cost $25 with copy of book "The All Knowing Diary"
