CROWNED A SURVIVOR

People often say the adolescent years are some of the best years of our lives. In our youth, it never occurs to us that one day, we might lose sight of who we are and abandon our dreams.

RECLAIM YOUR POWER

Too many times, we give away our power to people, situations and environments that do not foster our growth and in turn, make us feel disposable.

Trapped in this vicious cycle, Beatrice found herself in the depths of an emotional and spiritual breakdown. This breakdown led to her powerful breakthrough. Time away opened her up to exploring her inner kingdom, uncovering her untapped potential and changing the perception of how she views life and the environment around her.  In this thought-provoking session, Beatrice shares her experience and reminds us of the importance of reclaiming our power and activating the god within.

REMEMBER HER? SHE SPARKLED.

We are born creative and adventuresome. With curiosity, open mindedness and fearless intent, we hold endless possibilities and untapped talents. As we grow older, outside influences convince us to believe many UN-truths that are inconsistent with our inner truth. A series of events growing up led Tina to believe two very big UN-truths: she was stupid and should be ashamed of her body. Carrying the burden of these UN-truths weighed heavy on her for years. Tina kept her true self hidden and was consumed by shame and fear. Deep down, she knew, there was something BIG she needed to do. In this moving talk, Tina shares her journey and reminds us how reconnecting with our child-like wonder and trusting our inner truth can be magical.
