Subtle, Sensitive & Sophisticated: 19872
May 1, 1-3pm · $20

Scientists say most of your brain is active all of the time (not just 10%). Learn basic, practical mind-body truths and how to consistently achieve specific outcomes and maximize your potential. NLP is a simple, yet sophisticated approach to communication and personal development.

The NLP Meta-Model: 19874

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP):
Manifestation & the Power of Intention
May 29, 1-3pm · $20
