This experience will assist you in bringing to fruition the changes you have chosen to focus on for your life.

Maximize the Power of Your Chakras to Manifest the Life You Truly Desire
With Tejpal and Dr. Carrol McLaughlin
August 2
1:00 – 3:45pm
Although we often rely on our minds to figure out options and solutions when we want to create change in our lives, it takes more than an agile mind to manifest change. To create the life you truly desire, you need to tap into the many dimensions of your being. When you systematically engage your physical, emotional, heart and spiritual dimensions you open up a horizon of true possibilities that will enhance your day-to-day life.

One of the very successful ways to create lasting changes is to work with your energy field. Join intuitive healers Tejpal and Carrol McLaughlin and learn how to work with a key dimension of the human energy field, the chakra system. You will look at your patterns and become able to assess clearly what boosts your energy and what blocks you. When you eliminate blockages and see yourself with new clarity, you will be able to successfully make shifts in many parts of your life.You will be able overcome your old “stories” and patterns, and create exciting new opportunities for change that will bring more joy and meaning into your life.

Explore all 7 chakras during this 3 hour workshop and leave with new tools to manifest your own life in balance.

Authentic Connections with Coach Leigh
August 22
We live in a world today where we collect “friends” - responding to hundreds of emails, texts, tweets, and Facebook messages each day. Research is now showing that there is a significant link between increased use of social media and the feeling of being overwhelmed and lonely. Human beings are hungry for genuine connection and authentic experiences. When we experience authentic connection, we begin to realize that we are participants in something greater than ourselves. Our hearts open. Our souls shift. Our lives become more meaningful. Join Coach Leigh in a casual and inspiring conversation and become a part of Miraval's mission for collective awareness. The dialogue will be safely moderated in a way that openness and interaction is encouraged but not required. All guests are welcome.
