“Vision Board Workshop: Living Your Life by Design Not by Default”
With Michele Landers

DATE: Saturday, January 11, 2020
TIME: 2pm to 4pm
LOCATION: 205 Worth Avenue, Palm Beach
COST: $45. Vision Board materials, wine and snacks provided.

Our speaker Michele Landers has been asked to repeat her exciting two hour workshop on how a Vision Board can Support your Success in 2020! Our workshop we will take a deep dive into what action steps are required to create an effective Vision Board. Their effectiveness is supported by scientific research. Athletes have been using “mental imaging” for decades and Psychology Today reported that the brain patterns activated when you exercise (or engage in other activities) are also similarly activated when you just imagine (visualize) yourself exercising! Vision Boards are one of the most potent tools you can use to help you clarify and focus on your goals and desires. If you are ready to move into an expanded way of living, if you want to let go of “Doing” and step into “Being” and if you are committed to changing your beliefs and how you perceive the world, then this workshop is for you.

This 2 hour workshop we will explore:
The Power of Feng Shui to create your vision board.
How to bridge the gap from “where you are” to “where you want to be”.
Identifying & releasing sabotaging beliefs and fears.
Clarifying what you really want!

The Science of Happiness.
Our first meeting of the new year will be an introduction to meditation and its health benefits. With the fast pace of modern life, many people feel stressed, tired and unhappy. We can learn how to make 2020 healthy and happy for us.

Meditation is a way to create happiness from within. The deep restfulness of meditation dissolves stress. You feel more relaxed after just 20 minutes. Research on a specific type of meditation, the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique, indicates a reduction in stress hormones like cortisol by as much as 30%. When meditation becomes part of your daily routine, then calmness becomes part of your daily outlook.
Not only does meditation dissolve stress from the body, but it also allows the mind to quiet down and experience the most settled state of awareness. It feels like going from the busy crowded streets of New York to a peaceful island beach. After meditation, you can think more clearly and creatively. Your perspective changes and you see solutions when before you saw only problems.

We will discuss different meditation techniques while focusing more on the TM technique because it has been scientifically proven to reduce anxiety and depression. It is easy to do and celebrities like Jerry Seinfeld and Ellen DeGeneres stick with the TM technique year after year as a way to create inner contentment.
Learn more about creating happiness through meditation from Elaine Pomfrey, M.A., certified TM instructor, who has been teaching the technique for over 30 years. Elaine has been meditating since age 15 and she incorporates Ayurveda and yoga in her daily routine to stay balanced. She recently opened a Transcendental Meditation center in Palm Beach with two other certified TM teachers, Ty and Zabrina Brodale. https://www.transcendpalmbeach.org/

The Happiness Club is an educational, non-profit social group with the mission to promote the benefits of being happy and the powerful connection between emotional and physical well-being and the restorative power of the joy of living. Our motto is Making Happiness a Choice, and each month we feature an inspirational speaker. Our meeting is an uplifting opportunity to make new friends, connect with old friends, chat and share experiences. Cost for our Happy Hour includes refreshments, raffle, surprises and good vibes! www.happinessclubpalmbeach.com

Eat your way to a happy, healthy and balanced life. This isn’t just about promoting better eating habits, it’s about living better!

Chef Alex Cheblal and Melanie Cabot will host monthly Lunch & Learn programs throughout season on the last Tuesday of each month. During our healthy lunch we will introduce the 80/20 Rule for eating healthier where you eat a “clean” diet 80 percent of the time and allow yourself to enjoy a few indulgences 20 percent of the time. Many find this is a way for a more balanced approach to a healthy diet and a healthy lifestyle. Our conversation will include ways to maintain healthy eating habits, achieve your ideal weight, and feel happy and healthy with a diet that allows for both balance and indulgence!

Originally from Geneva Switzerland, Chef Alex Cheblal was born on a farm with a macrobiotic lifestyle and learned his craft the old-fashioned way. He was mentored at an early age by Master chefs in France, Switzerland, the United States, and Japan. Inspired by these international flavors. His knowledge of plant-based nutrition has been shaped by the Functional Medicine, Integrative, and Holistic practitioners, as well as the local, organic non-pesticide farmers with whom he partners. Chef Alex created Vegan Wagon to be your source to bring highly-nutritious, locally sourced and crafted farm produce straight to your plate. https://veganwagon.com/
