How would you like to live a happy and fulfilled life - in all aspects of your life? If you have ever used the excuse you don't have the time, or the experience, you are too old, too young, not educated enough, not brave enough, too fat, too short, too broke, too unlucky, or you have too many restrictions such as your fitness, your debts, your mortgage, the bills, the boss, the wife, the kids, the elderly parents etc. to stop you from moving forward, this session is for you. Choosing to focus on making the very best of things is incredibly liberating. You have one life and it is up to you to make the most of it whatever your circumstances.
Are you a little bored of the same old messages about food and nutrition? Have you noticed that our collective approach to eating, weight and health isn't working? Have you been confused by the endless amount of nutritional systems put forward by the experts that all say something different? Have you been looking for a way to take your health and metabolism to the next great place without the struggle and the fight? Join Marc David, Nutritional Psychologist, author and Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating for a fascinating class on the Secrets of Mind Body Nutrition. Learn easy-to-practice tools and techniques that you can use with yourself, your clients, and your loved ones to truly enhance your nutritional metabolism and positively transform your relationship with food. For far too long, the collective conversation around nutrition has focused on outdated science - a preoccupation with good foods and bad ones, and an approach to the body devoid of subtlety, energetics, emotion, and the impact of the psyche on physiology. It's time for a new vision of nutrition. You'll discover how what we eat is only half the story of good nutrition. The other half is who we are as eaters. That is, how we think, feel, believe, and show up in the world dramatically impacts digestion, assimilation, and calorie burning capacity. It's time for a fresh and inspiring conversation when it comes to eating. We'll call upon the wisdom of clinical nutrition, mind body science, functional medicine positive psychology, and the traditions of Yoga, Buddhism and timeless spiritual teachings to find a new way to nourish ourselves. This course promises to open up some surprising new possibilities for your nutritional health, and personal empowerment.

Psychologist and Holocaust survivor Viktor Frank said, "In between stimulus, and response there is a space, in that space lies our power to choose our response lies our growth and our freedom." There are many moments in our lives where we drop into a space of clarity, tap into what really matters and get in touch with the wisdom that lies inside. This is the Now Effect. This presentation will show us how we can recognize these "choice points" more often and train our minds in such a way that these moments begin drop in in on us more often and eventually not only strengthen our brains, but change the way we think before we think. This session talks about how we can skillfully weave this into our daily lives to recognize unhealthy habits, prime the mind for good, transform difficult emotions, and get connected.
Extensive research has shown that exposure to excessive pressure and challenge in the workplace can be motivating. However, when pressure reaches a level where the individual feels they can no longer cope, it can lead to stress. Resiliency is a protective factor against stress. This session will educate on stress, vicarious trauma/compassion fatigue and provide you with tools, practices and strategies to help prevent stress and burnout, helping to create a healthy work environment for both yourself and those around you.

Radical change is often promised, manifestation and attraction are popular topics, but is radical change as easy as it sounds? What are the real risks, limitations and fears that you will likely face? What does a seasoned life-risk taker and major change agent know that you don't? What is the truth behind the promise of a better life or an enlightened way of being? Join author, teacher and healer Jonathan Ellerby PhD to explore the deep truth about radical change and personal awakening. Jonathan has coached people of all walks of life, from the rich and famous, to daily heros like mom's and dad's, nurses and teachers.

Based on his new book, THE PROMISE OF PARADISE: LIFE LESSONS FROM THE TROPICS, Jonathan will share his own funny and touching stories of change as well as the keys to facing the most difficult aspects of the journey.
