Revive Mind, Body and Soul
Friday 25th – Sunday 27th October, 2013
No life is without aspects that challenge us, sometimes beyond what we believe we can endure. Yet, there are those that seem to survive and those that even seem to THRIVE amidst the many pressures and life stressors.
Why is it that some people seem to manage their life, despite the adversity and challenges?
I believe it is our uniqueness, ingenuity and creativeness that allow us to interpret the meaning of our Life Journey. When we learn how to tap into our Inner Resources we find the Resiliency of our Soul.
This is a workshop that will change your life.

The exercise with the child photo showed me that the child within is still there; eager to explore and quite happy being just as ‘she’ is - confident of other’s approval”.
“This workshop has given me insight, encouragement, love and support as well as new hope and energy”.
“I have accepted the fact that my purpose is not static and I am able to identify my behaviour patterns as a result of the exercises. I am beginning to recognise negative thought patterns”.
