  2. The Journey of Service

  3. For so many Leaders throughout the world, the idea of being of service starts young, or during a traumatic time. There are many reasons why some people become Leaders and spend their life teaching, learning, and being of service to all that they encounter in their lives. Being of service doesn't mean being famous, it doesn't mean being wealthy, it means holding others in respect and love.  I'm sure you've known many, and maybe YOU fit this category, but let's take time to recognize a wonderful group of people, who happen to be members of a family who have chosen the life of Service. Be inspired, live your life of service!


Convention Closing Lecture:

How to Improve Yourself for the Benefit of Others & Healing Circle

Sometimes we KNOW we have attributes built into our DNA to help others but we can't seem to get out of our own way. We self sabotage unconsciously, we make excuses of "I'm not good enough" We feel we aren't important enough, we haven't written a book yet, and the list goes on and on.   Lets look at a few tools in order for you to improve yourself for the benefit of others. It's easy, it's fast and it will make a world of difference in the lives of those you touch.

Decoding Adversity

In every aspect of life, we encounter situations, or adversities, that prevent us from achieving our goals.  With chronic cases, adversity can control personal choices with emotional paralysis and loss of power.  By Decoding Adversity, you will uncover the aspects of a shadow reality, and understand how adversity affects your internal and external environment.  From this, you develop a shift in perception that allows you to gather the learning, recalibrate, and achieve a state of harmony.  While living in a state of harmony, you will reclaim your power of choice, achieve goals, enjoy more success, and increase your daily energy. 

In this class, Vita and Christina will show the process of decoding adversity, tools to recalibrate and daily meditation to improve successful recalibration.

Manifestation through Dowsing the Chakras

Our body is the barometer of our soul and our soul, or higher self, wants us to manifest our dreams. Through the course of life we have usually learned to close off the communication with our soul, and block or inhibit this manifestation either mentally, physically, emotionally or spiritually. By dowsing the chakras and other esoteric fields we will learn where and how we are sabotaging our goals, how to change it, and how to finally manifest our dreams.
