What does your speech say about you? How about your face? Your movements? Your personality shines through everything you do, but how well do you really know yourself?

In this eclectic workshop, five world-renowned experts in personal development help you gain great insights into who you are, what you need, and most importantly, how to work with this knowledge to create a life that works for you.

Join Laura Germine, Jean Haner, Laurie Lico Albanese, Deborah Dana, and Deborah Grant on a journey to explore what your mind, body, and spiritual self say about your
true being.

Over time, your personality and brain chemistry may shift, as do your body and intellectual and spiritual pursuits. Using everything from the latest research in psychology, neuroscience, and genetics, to face reading and intuitive insights, to writing and movement, you gain a better understanding of your past and current self, and learn how to positively impact your future self.

Through exercises, discussion, and guided self-reflection, you delve into all aspects of your life and connect with who you really are, inside and out.

All are welcome. Helping professionals learn tools they can use with clients.
