Burnaby Public Library and Bridge-for-Health are presenting this workshop. People tell you to listen to your gut, but you either don't hear it clearly, don't know how to interpret the message, or are too afraid to follow it.

How many times have you said to yourself, "I knew it!" after you had failed to follow your intuition in a relationship, personal or business opportunity, and suffered  the consequences of increased anxiety, worry and stress?

When you understand how to tap into intuition, you'll become more in-tune with yourself, which will give you more confidence to make decisions. That confidence will lead to reduced stress, peace of mind and increased sense of well-being.

Join us at Joseph's mind-opening workshop, and you will learn:

  • How intuition works - a science-based perspective.
  • Why you don't hear, understand or follow your intuition
  • Techniques to enhance your intuitive decision-making, which will help you reduce stress and increase your well-beingJoseph_Eliezer
