LOCATION: Bice Restaurant, 313 Peruvian, Palm Beach

As we enter a New Year and the start of a new decade, the decisions you make and the actions you take now, will set the tone for the next 10 years.

Join us for Edwige Gilbert’s presentation “2020: Make your wish come true” In her powerful presentation you will discover the true story behind the movie “The Secret”. You will understand why your beliefs create your reality and how you can change them to get the results that you want. Importantly you will realize why willpower does not work to create your desired changes and why your subconscious power is the answer and can enable you to create:
– Productive habits to keep you healthy and trim.
– A winning attitude to make your business thrive
– A plan for your Joie de vivre, French for Joy of life.

Edwige Gilbert is a highly respected Wellness Coach and author with 20+ years success transforming lives through her New Life Directions programs and personalized coaching.

“Vision Board Workshop: Living Your Life by Design Not by Default”
DATE: Friday, December 6, 2019
TIME: 4:00pm to 6:00pm
LOCATION: 205 Worth Avenue, Palm Beach
COST: $45. Vision Board materials, wine and snacks provided.

Join us for this exciting two hour workshop on how a Vision Board can Kick up Your Goals and 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. Vision Boards may have a “mystical” reputation however in reality 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.
