Essence Of Being


Today you can choose to empower yourself with the life-changing Essence of Being® workshop. We will explore how you create reality through your thoughts and core belief system with the principle of Law of Attraction.

Essence of Being® is a 3 day experiential weekend to discover your definitions of success, how successful you are, and how to enhance your life! It’s about breaking old habits and changing methods that no longer work for you.

  • Overcome feeling "stuck"
  • Tune up your financial literacy
  • Have more loving relationships
  • Reach the next level in your transformation
  • Increase your wealth consciousness
  • Uplift yourself to greater relationships
  • Get real results

Through this 3 day experiential weekend journey into self, you will become skilled at attracting success on your own terms by adopting a more powerful, yet peaceful way of being, while releasing blocks that no longer serve you.

You will learn to embrace all aspects of your natural abundance such as self-love, life passion, financial satisfaction, and your ability to grow healthy relationships at home, in business and your community. Essence of Being® is a rare opportunity to turn a corner in your life, meet people, and have fun all at once!

Join the thousands of graduates from around the world and learn “the secret” to being!

The Essence of Being® provides an amazing way to help you manifest your dreams, and discover, or enhance, your special gifts. You will step more firmly into your power and see how to use goodness and light to better serve the world and yourself.

The goal of  The Essence of Being® is to raise the vibrations of people and businesses by compassionately facilitating a paradigm shift from fear, scarcity and loss to one of courage, abundance and growth.

Through a combination of simulations, role-playing and experiential games, Essence of Being® specializes in helping you recognize the patterns you’ve created in your life. You’ll evaluate these patterns, determining if your belief system has served you well or needs to be updated to reflect your new approach to life!
