Symposium: Lighten Up! Dare To Be Your Most Radiant Self

November 8, 2015


Is the routine of everyday life weighing you down?
In caring for others, have you lost yourself along the way?
Are you aching to light a fire in your life but not sure how – or even know what that fire is?

Lighten Up! Dare To Be Your Most Radiant Self will help you discover possibilities for living a life you love.

88145ec1-adb0-4b81-9fa8-1fd5c15d6c42Join us on Sunday, November 8th at the beautiful lakeside setting of Chateau Vaudreuil for an amazing day of personal discovery, inspiration and hands on activities that will help you reveal your unique gifts and get your life moving in a direction you love. All that and a healthy, delicious buffet lunch and organic snacks. This is a day that has been designed just for you! 

As women, we so often put the needs of others before ourselves without recognizing that when we are not physically, mentally and emotionally healthy, we are not truly in a place of positivity to nurture and support the relationships we care about or live the life we really want to live.

During this day you will…

* Discover methods to find and listen to your inner voice
* Learn how to meditate and practice gratitude and mindfulness
* Explore and discover your unique gifts
* Learn how to quiet your ego and expand your perspective
* Find ways to reconnect with your intuition
* Connect, share and be inspired by other fabulous women

This is a day to invest in yourself!

This promises to be a day that will nourish your soul and lighten your spirit. You will leave the day enriched, energized, motivated and equipped with the tools you need to embrace your radiance and move your life forward in a direction you love.

More About Sharon Cohen:

It is the love of being a part of a community of women who are ready to create a healthier way of walking through life. Women who honour their feminine strength, stand in their authentic power, and are of service to others without losing their inner balance. It is our time now as women to nurture ourselves and replenish our heart and soul. It is our time to shine! My joyful calling is to create a loving space for women to explore, embody and experience their wholeness so they can LIVE with a grateful heart and passion for life.

Since 1995 I have been in private practice, specializing in holistic services that include nutritional, emotional and spiritual counseling, menopausal symptoms, digestive challenges and allergy elimination. My goal is to give you the tools to achieve optimum wellness on all levels and unleash your most radiant self. I also lecture and facilitate workshops relating to wellness for women and the nurturing of self-love.
