The Six Bardos: A Bigger Picture of the Stages of Living & Dying
  This talk is based on the book written by my Guru, Master Tam Shek-wing, aka Dorje Jigdral. The title of the book is “Natural Appearances, Natural Liberation. A Nyingma Meditative Guide on the Six Bardos of Living and Dying”.
  The bardo has been an enduring topic for those interested in looking beyond our phenomenal world. How well do we understand the meaning of bardo? By its most fundamental definition, bardo means an intermediate or in-between state. The term usually refers to an interim state of existence occurring immediately after death but before rebirth.

How to Raise Children with a Positive Mindset
  Raising children in a world where there seems to be more and more negativity, and increased challenges for everyone, it is necessary, more than ever, to teach them how to have a positive mindset for maximum success in life. How can you, as a parent, speak in ways that foster this, and how can you as a family weave “positive mindset” into the fabric of your family culture? In this class, Alice will take proven positive mindset principles and teach you how to use language that will help them balance out their challenges and move towards success in life. You will learn exercises, dialogues, and concepts you can use with your child or children, (any age, really) to help them to see life in a new way. Plant the seeds now. It's never too late. Imagine if your parents did this for you, where you would be today?

Physiognomy: Basics of Reading Faces
  Physiognomy is the assessment of a person’s character or personality from his or her face. Your face is a mirror of your personality. Statistical results have shown that there is a strong connection between facial features and personality traits. Have you ever noticed that people who look alike tend to behave in the same way, or have common behavior traits? What do thick lips mean when it comes to personality? What about a high forehead? Large ears? Come learn the basics of face reading and how to relate them to their corresponding personality traits to get an advantage in life when it comes to "reading people." Using your intuition is good, but now you will be able to "match" it to their facial features! Understanding how to read faces will give you double the power that body language gives you and strengthen your intuition! A FUN class!

Evolutionary Astrology
  Evolutionary Astrology gives us insight into a souls higher life purpose and ultimately where you are heading. In traditional astrology, the Sun, Moon and Ascendant play a big role, but today we'll be looking at the focal point of Pluto and how it relates to your "soul intention" in this life. Perhaps something that is not working in your life is expressing itself as a repeating theme until the lesson is learned, or maybe you are recreating patterns that are not "good" for you. Regardless of what it is, this is a chance to see how basic evolutionary astrology can unveil insight that can serve as guidance to self empowerment and your soul's deepest desire and intention for your life.

Discover Who You Are Through Handwriting Analysis
  Handwriting Analysis is the window to a whole new life! Why go through life with “your music still inside” you? Many people underestimate themselves, and are completely unaware of their potential or true value. Who you think you are, may be wrong? Handwriting Analysis is a “tool” used to determine personality traits that are either working for or against you. We all have both, as well as those personal sandbags weighing us down and holding us back from reaching our full potential.

Free Yourself from Fear - Just Do It!
  Is there something in your life that you want to take action on, but can’t seem to be able to take the first step? One of the reasons why we avoid taking action is because at some level, we don’t believe we deserve more. The other is because of fear. If you want your life to change, you have to make a change, and no one has the power to do this for you. In this class we will clearly identify your underlying fear or fears from the seven main fears that hold people back from taking action. You will be guided through a process of collapsing these fears so you can change your perspective and not only feel inspired within, but confident to take action.

Everything Happens for a Reason: 10 Reasons to Explain the Challenging Events in Your Life
  We have all heard the phrase “everything happens for a reason.” Is it actually true? If so, what is the reason for why things happen, especially challenges, or seemingly unjust situations? Anytime we have undesirable situations in our lives, we have a greater chance of finding peace and understanding if we can find the significance of the event. Come discover what could be the reason(s) for confusing or unfortunate moments in your life, and celebrate the gifts, lessons or opportunities they have brought. We will work on both past and present events in your life.

Masterminding Your Next Reality
  When it comes to getting what we want in life, having a clear focus and unwavering intent are vital keys to attaining our goals. Many of us make individual lists for ourselves and have an idea in our mind about what we are looking for in life, yet neglect to see the source of strength and power that pooling those visions with other people can promote. Join us for this informative session, showing how sharing a defined focus of intent for ourselves, as well as holding each others’ visions of success in a safe place, can become a collective force for manifestation and empowerment. Let’s come together to mold our own masterminds for your next reality, then celebrate by sharing this new knowledge with others in support.
