Wired for Happiness, Success, and Divinity
11:30am-5:30pm • $85 thru Nov 1, $97 day of
Stan Giles will help you discover your own dominance profile and see how it dramatically affects how you function in the world. Are you more logical, or creative, or do you relate to the world primarily through inspiration and higher realms? Find out whether your logical and creative brain hemispheres are integrated or not, as well as learning how to assess others. Perhaps as many as 70 percent of people have poor integration, leading to increased stress, reduced learning ability, and poor decision-making. This workshop includes simple exercises that re-establish good communication between the hemispheres. www.StanGiles.com

Individual Consultations for Consciousness Repatterning
11:15am-5pm • $115/45 minute session
Our sabotage programs or unconscious limiting beliefs stop us from achieving our goals, whether at work, in relationships, in our finances, or in our spiritual paths. They also create a great deal of stress for us. Since we are not consciously aware of them, all we know is that life is not as good as it could be, without knowing how to improve it. In a Consciousness Repatterning session with Stan Giles, you will identify the most important sabotage programs and rapidly and permanently change them to positive life-enhancing beliefs. www.StanGiles.com
