- THE ETERNAL QUEST CLASS - With Nigel TALOR
In today’s world I meet people from every age group, every race and every belief. There are the devout followers of a specific faith ~ Christians, Buddhists, Moslems, Hindus, Jewish, Indigenous and many, many others. Then there are the devout agnostics, the atheists, the cynics and the skeptics. Of course there are all of those in between each and every crevice that separates one idea of reality from another. I know you understand. Each group breaks into infinite denominations. Plus there are those who have placed their faith in the market with all of its players. We have gods and goddesses who sell us ideas. Media personalities, performers, celebrity chefs and so it goes. • Life is busy. • Life is full. • Life as we know it eventually leaves us... One day each of us will reach that point where we hang up our hat and pass through the veil. We leave behind... • Our beliefs • Our hurts, • Our pains • Our anguish. • We leave behind our loved ones and then what? We take the next step of our journey into the… Great Unknown We are all on this quest, young and old alike. We may look different in our age, gender, race, wellness or abundance, but at the level of the Soul, we are all the same. So consider this… Asking questions IS the CORE of the Quest. • Knowing HOW to ask them • Knowing HOW to discern the quality of the response. Now, that is The Eternal Quest. Those who ask, listen, discern and answer awaken the deepest wisdom in their hearts. They become the Light Workers, the WayShowers and the beacons that uplift all. It's Time Now To Step Into The Stream…and participate consciously in this journey. THE ETERNAL QUEST is an evening workshop designed to open the door on The Quest. Here is where we go... 1. To illuminate how questioning is a wisdom practice that leads directly to discovering for yourself the wisdom, conviction and inner certainty that leads to greater knowledge and understanding of the deepest issues and mysteries of life. 2. To articulate major questions common to people throughout the ages as part of our true higher education and spiritual literacy. Educating for living a meaningful life, not just education for making a living. 3. To help provoke further self inquiry aimed towards articulating your own most personally vital question. This question calls to you and pulls you forward and simultaneously drives your dreams, ambitions, desires and pushes you beyond habitual limits and frameworks, as you continue to consciously evolve towards a far more wise and expansive future. And of course…much more! See you there! Blessings, Nigel

- CONSCIOUS ENTREPRENEURSHIP FOR WOMEN: Embracing Your Vulnerability & Visibility
The Lantern Centre€15.00
"As a conscious entrepreneur, you know in your heart and soul you are here to make a difference. You are here to lead the way for your tribe. Are you ready? As you step forward fears and doubts arose. This may be happening for you too and the good news is that it is normal. The fears and doubts start to lose their power when you keep applying the 4 truths on a daily basis. They will take you from that place of struggle and overwhelm to a place of ease and grace." At each step and you will begin to see the bigger picture. Be willing to overcome your own story and let go of the unconscious limiting beliefs that are holding you back. This evening is specifically designed for women and yet the core principles of conscious entrepreneurship are the same for both genders. So if you are a man, you are more than welcome to join us. TOWARDS A NEW AND MORE EMPOWERING PARADIGM: CONSCIOUS ENTERPENEURSHIP There was a time when the norm was to work for someone else's dream (It's called employment...) There was a time when you had to be brought up in a family of entrepreneurs, to become an entrepreneur yourself... There was a time when you needed to have the money, the skills, the knowledge and a natural predisposition, to become a successful entrepreneur.... There was a time when there were more male entrepreneurs than female ones. Now, all of these assumptions are no longer true, as we are moving towards a new paradigm called CONSCIOUS ENTREPRENEURSHIP. All you need to do is to step into your feminine power, your heart, your passion and you'll be guided to become a successful conscious entrepreneur. - M. Leone YOU ALREADY KNOW IN YOUR HEART AND SOUL YOU ARE HERE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. WHY DO YOU KEEP RESISTING YOUR CALLING? As a conscious entrepreneur you know in your heart and soul you are here to make a difference. You are here to lead the way for your tribe. Are you ready? It is simple yet not always easy. As you step forward fears and doubts arose. This may be happening for you too and the good news is that it is normal. The fears and doubts start to lose their power when you keep applying the 4 truths on a daily basis. They will take you from that place of struggle and overwhelm to a place of ease and grace. FIDELMA'S FOUR TRUTH TO CONSCIOUS ENTERPENEURSHIP I love these 4 truths. They bring me back on track every time. As you lead the way as a conscious entrepreneur to support your tribe, how do you bring yourself back on track? Faith Listen to the quiet voice inside you nudging you to keep going. The magic happens when you get to a place of unwavering faith where you know your desire is growing inside you and is seeking to be expressed. The next time moments of confusion and overwhelm raise their heads, bring yourself back to this place within you and quietly trust big time that all is happening exactly as it needs to Abundance Believe that the universe is abundant and that everything you need is already here. You have the gifts and talent to do what you need to do. You may need some more resources and you will be shown exactly what you need when you need it. The support, love, money, joy and freedom are all here for you – you have to knock and the door will be opened. Intuition This is the inner compass that is going to guide you each step of the way especially in making decisions and trusting in your own abilities and guidance. Remember when you are seeking approval outside of yourself, your answers lie within. Truth Your truth is being revealed as you take each step and you will begin to see the bigger picture. Be willing to overcome your own story and let go of the unconscious limiting beliefs that are holding you back. I love these truths. They bring me back on track every time. As you lead the way as a conscious entrepreneur to support your tribe, how do you bring yourself back on track? ABOUT THE SPEAKER Fidelma Greene is a Conscious Business Mentor who empowers highly conscious women entrepreneurs who are feeling stuck, not knowing how to affect greater change in their life and business. She helps them in their business and life as they step into their feminine power to share their message with the world in their own unique way in the new paradigm of the feminine leadership of the new economy. She acts as their midwife to help them birth more freedom, abundance, and possibilities as a Conscious Entrepreneur.

- THREE STEPS TO CLARITY AND HAPPINESS - With Sound & Energy Healer Monika RAK
The Lantern Centre€15.00
WHAT IS GOING ON FOR YOU RIGHT NOW? • Are you happy and satisfied with yourself, your life and your relationships? • Are you struggling to figure out what you really want to do with your life? • Are you feeling confused about the big decisions in life? • Are you feeling capable of doing so much more, but are unsure where to start? • Are you afraid of taking the leap to really follow your dreams? CLARITY IS THE KEY We often face those big decisions in life that, more often than not, make us feel confused. It’s not enough for us to know that we are capable of so much more. And when we are faced with the uncertainty of where we should start to make these changes, those “decisions” may become harder to make. The fear of taking that first steps towards happiness, contentment, trusting our instincts and following our heart’s desires is where we often need the most support and guidance. LETTING GO OF WHAT IS NOT SERVING US ANYMORE Once we become more relaxed, calmer, clearer of what we want to create in our lives, once we let go of what is not serving us anymore, we can fulfil our unique potential, we can manifest our greatest dreams, we can start enjoying our life’s journey which is unfolding in front of us every single day. We can be happy and satisfied not when we know all the answers but when we can trust our “Intuitive Heart” to provide us with all we need to make the best possible choices in any given circumstance. ABOUT THE EVENING During this evening, Monika Rak will introduce her first three steps to Clarity & Happiness. She will explain how important it is to Stop, Clarify and De-clutter at all levels (mental, emotional, spiritual and physical). She will offer the opportunity for you to quiet your mind, relax, and find your own clarity, which will allow you to let go of the blocks that are preventing you to move on in life in whatever area you may feel stuck. She will give you a unique experience of a "Sound Bath" so that you can experience the amazing healing power of ancient vibrational sounds of instruments such as gongs, drums, chimes, Tibetan bowls, tuning pipes, and the sansula. ABOUT THE SPEAKER "I’m Monika, and I am Holistic, Intuitive Life Coach, Sound & Energy Healing Practitioner, and Transformation Facilitator based in Dublin. I’m also the founder of HAPPY CHOICE I specialize in Relaxation, Clarity, and Empowerment. I learned how to intuitively use sounds and energy to help people relax, gain clarity and personal power. I believe that each of us has a unique set of talents and passions, and if we allow ourselves to be relaxed, to be authentic, and to trust our intuition and follow our hearts, we can experience life as an inspired journey. Each of us has the ability to live a joyful life, however, to do so we need to choose joy and happiness on a daily basis. Once we realize that happiness is a choice, we are free to create it at any given moment."

- NEW YEAR – NEW YOU: A Vision Board Workshop
THE MAGIC OF VISION BOARDING We are now coming towards the end of another year. Has 2017 been a good year for you? When you look back to the start of this year, have you achieved the goals you set yourself at the start of 2017 or did they fall by the wayside and get forgotten about? Do you feel you would like to start anew in 2018 and really step into the best version of you and achieve your goals? Would you like to learn some tools and strategies to help kick-start your new year and keep you on track for 2018, so that when you look back, you will be proud of yourself and your achievements in 2018?

We will create an environment where you lift yourself above the hum drum of your normal life and unleash the dreams you have inside for all areas of your life! THINK OF YOURSELF IN 2 YEARS FROM NOW… Do you see yourself in the same job? Earning the same level of income (Maybe slowly paying off your mortgage...)? Do you see the same gap between your dreams and your reality? What if there was another way...? What if your elusive dreams took shape before your eyes? What would you discover? What could you then bring into your life for real? When you know how to create a vision board you hold the secret to making your dreams come true! WHAT IS A VISION BOARD? Vision boards are a fabulous technique for focussing our energy and commitment on what’s important. Then we get to have more of it in our lives. Pictures, words, photos, lines from poems, colour – they all help to create a powerful reminder of what you want in your future. Creating a vision board in a workshop is fun, playful, stress free, creative and collaborative. You get to share ideas and tell other people about yours. That’s the added extra of doing this with others – you get to say it out loud as well. ABOUT THE WORKSHOP The vision board is an excellent tool to help you turn your dreams into reality! If this sounds like something that could help you. Then join us for this fun, informative, relaxing and life-affirming workshop NEW YEAR-NEW YOU.

"The Krysantha is the underlying golden matrix of energy that animates and connects all things. The Krysantha is the animating life force, the bio-photonic light that enlivens every cell of your being." "Krysantha Healing is for anyone who wants to deepen their connection to themselves, to life or their healing practice. It is for Everyone - energy healers, massage therapists and “regular” people!" (Contribution: 15ceuro at the door) WHAT IS THE KRYSANTHA HEALING METHOD? The Krysantha is the underlying golden matrix of energy that animates and connects all things. The Krysantha is the animating life force, the bio-photonic light that enlivens every cell of your being. For the last several years, this energy has been appearing to me and moving through me in my healing work. While tuning in to my clients’ energy fields and physical bodies, I began to see and experience this magnificent, bio-photonic light animating every cell of the human body. As I explored this golden cellular light, I began to see the threads of connection, from cell to cell, atom to atom — like a spider web, delicate yet unbelievably strong, all covered in dew and illuminated by the morning sun. These threads radiated throughout the physical body and surrounded it, continuing on to connect all things, out through Infinity. I came to know this golden flower-like matrix as The Krysantha. The Krysantha matrix is the golden template and the animating force of life. https://youtu.be/Ugj1nRAoyMw WHAT THE KEYSANTHA HEALING METHOD CAN DO FOR YOU Through your work with Laurie Thorp and Krysantha Healing, you can: Live your life with purpose and let your infinite light shine Access your animating life forceIncrease self-confidence, awareness, and creativity Put your past pain into perspective Open to all that life has to offer ...Into the fullness of being human ...Into the essence of being You https://youtu.be/Y06hT2H2NC8 ABOUT LAURIE THORP I am passionate about the stunning potential that lies within the human body and spirit. As a teacher, healer, and speaker, I am committed to living my life from a place of integrity, authenticity, and vibrancy, and to offering the same possibility to others. From the well of my own being, I offer you the experience of embodied presence: the heart-mind-body connection of deep awareness within the present moment. My exploration of embodied presence has led me to discover compassionate and effective ways of healing and teaching. Dancing, meditating, collage-making, traveling, gardening, and hoop dancing provide a foundation for my own spiritual practice, allowing me to experience the gift of being fully human and inspiring me to share this gift with others. With over 25 years of experience as a healer and teacher, I continue to be energized by the promise of health and delight in our earthly existence. My tenure of more than 20 years in private practice and as a senior faculty member at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing (a professional four-year program in Energy Healing) has allowed me to expand my creative vision and has deepened my desire to continue to share both my breadth of knowledge and my joy of life with others. https://youtu.be/cNxmwucV4aM

JOHN'S VISION & MISSION BEHIND THE WAY OF THE LEOPARD - RTE (THE MORNING SHOW) My vision behind the Way of the Leopard is to take people on an ancient journey to rediscover their destiny, their heart’s call, their soul’s purpose in this life. I liken this journey to a deep sea voyage fraught with challenges, joy and divine intervention. I see myself as the captain or navigator on this journey: my job will be to guide and encourage participants. Each journey begins with an intention. The more devoted the seeker, the clearer the message will become. It is my dream that by sharing these ancient ways, we will sow the seeds for establishing communities of people around the world, who together can hold ceremonial space and ground the ancestral energy into everyday life. ABOUT JOHN LOCKLEY https://youtu.be/PhvPyGpkjes John Lockley was born in Cape Town in 1971 during apartheid to an Irish mother and a Zimbabwean father with British ancestry. He completed an honors degree in clinical psychology at Rhodes University in 1997. In 1997 in post-apartheid South Africa he met Xhosa sangoma Mum Gwevu in the Joza township in Grahamstown, Eastern Cape. Mum Gwevu says she had foreseen his arrival in a dream. He was trained as a sangoma in the Eastern Cape townships, serving a 10-year apprenticeship with Mum Ngwevu which he completed in 2007. Mum Ngwevu gave him the Xhosa name Ucingolwendaba, which means "messenger." MEDIA APPEARANCE
