Your Ticket to a Joyful Life - Nov 28-29

Date: 28 Nov 2015 9:00am
Seminar Leader: John Ince
Audience: Everyone

Science has identified the ingredients of happiness.
But most of us don't know them.
We can help you learn them and grow happier!

But there’s a catch: creating a joyful life takes work! Fun work!

If you want to be as happy as you can possibly be, you have to leave the tedious track that our culture encourages us to take.

Few people can change course in life without major on-going support in the form of a step-by-step system and a community of folks on the same path.

JOYSHIFT is that system and community. This two day seminar will introduce you to it.

Come prepared to breathe deeply, feel intensely, move playfully, make new friends, stimulate your senses, and learn a radical new way to be really happy.

How often do you talk openly and honestly about your sexual history and current sex live?
For most people that is very rare.

Yet opening up in a safe environment with others who are interested in such an engaging topic can be a highly liberating and educational experience.

We have devised a wonderful way to do that. We call it the Sex Positive Cocktail Party and we host them in-person at our store.

But attending at our premises is only possible for a small fraction of the folks who want to engage in down-to-earth conversations about sex. so we have decided to host the event ONLINE! In the privacy of your own home you can attend the party!SEMINAR DESCRIPTION CONTINUES HERE.

Discover Primal Happiness - Dec 4

Date: 4 Dec 2015 8:00pm
Seminar Leader: John Ince
Audience: Everyone

Thanks to our genes, our happiness derives from a small number of primal experiences, like eating, having sex, being in nature, and connecting with others.

Yet, amazingly, many of these wonderful things are absent from the lives of most people.

But we can get them and grow much happier.

The secret to such a happiness boost is something foreign to most people, yet is easy and fun: an on-going daily practice called Joyshift.

This seminar will get you started on this powerful emotionally uplifting program.

You begin with just one minute a day. Just one minute! You choose an activity that you enjoy and start doing it for just 60 seconds. And the next day two minutes, and so on.

Free Event. Register here.
