The How Of Courage – Wednesday, August 12, 6:30pm to 8:00pm – FREE offering at New Leaf Community Markets, Half Moon Bay

RECLAIM YOUR CLARITY, CREATIVITY, & PROSPERITY

This series with Dr. Lisa Chu, M.D., is designed to introduce you to your own internal sources of health, wealth, and vibrancy in your life, and equip you with some practical tools to begin self-coaching your own life upgrades.

Each session focuses on a theme, and is complete on its own. The sequence of four sessions, when taken together, is designed to provide you with a set of tools for reclaiming your natural state of thriving in clarity, creativity, and prosperity.

Sessions may be taken individually OR as a series of 4. Included in your choice to commit and invest in the full series of 4 sessions, you will receive e-mail follow-up between sessions, the opportunity to choose an accountability partner or group, as well as specials on any individual coaching sessions booked during the series (between September 16 and December 31, 2015).

Session #1: The Whole Body Listening Experience, Wednesday September 16th, 6:15pm to 8:00pm
The full participation of Whole Body Listening activates and opens doorways of feeling, receptivity, and harmonious relationship with our world.
In this session, we will “prime the pump” of our feeling world, utilizing sound and voice, and begin listening to the sacred language of the body. What our thoughts, words, and conscious feelings do not reveal are often being expressed through our bodies.
Session #2: Mental Hygiene, Wednesday, October 7th, 6:15pm to 8:00pm
Step into greater clarity by “weeding the garden” of your mind. Learn how your thoughts and words may be affecting your health, your relationships, your finances, and your career. Discover some daily Mental Hygiene practices to help you clear the slate, transform potential energy into forward motion, and experience more of your heart’s desires in your life.
Session #3: Renegotiating Love, Wednesday, November 11th, 6:15pm to 8:00pm
Each of us has a set of “love equations” that operate in our consciousness, whether we are aware or not. Uncover your hidden agreements about love, and discover a path of transforming them into your new highest agreements fulfilled.
Session #4: Reclaim Your Heart’s Highest Choice, Wednesday, December 9th, 6:15pm to 8:00pm
Just in time for the transition into a new year, take this time to celebrate yourself and claim your vision for a thriving new year. Reflect on your learning and accomplishments in the past year, AND experience a powerful process to reclaim your heart’s highest choices as you enter the new year.
