The Art of Authentic Presence

December 5th | Tuesday | 5:30pm – 8:30pm | $18

Authentic presence means being in touch with your true self: heart, mind, body and soul. When you are truly in touch with your Authentic Self you open the door to the rich and wonderful relationships that can occur between human beings, whether at work, play, or in love. Speaking and listening from your Authentic Self is to be fully present, with yourself and your listeners, allowing you “selves” to shine through.

In this class, you will be introduced to a new way of being that allows for deeper and more powerful connections in all of your relationships through a series of experiential exercises. Come and discover your Authentic Self.

November 11th  | Saturday | 10:am-5:pm | $135.00
Hosted by the Chattery

Is the fear of speaking holding you back in your personal or professional life?

Are you quiet in meetings or at parties because you are afraid you’ll say the wrong thing, or say it badly?
Does the thought of making a speech or giving a presentation terrify you?
Do you experience that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach? Dry mouth? Sweaty palms? Quivering voice?
Does your heart race?
Do you question your ability? Wonder if anyone is really interested in what you have to say?
Do you find it difficult to be spontaneous? Be yourself?

Would you like to:

Release the fears that hold you back?
Be your most comfortable, authentic self in personal and professional settings?
Communicate with full presence, ease, confidence and impact?

Come join with others who share the same anxieties. Support each other, share your stories, laugh (and cry) together as your break through old fears.

Claim your voice, speak the scary, find the funny, touch the heart – you CAN do this!
