March: Your Essence is Like a Box of Chocolates Part 2



I believe that OUR ESSENCEs are made up of four different parts: Heart, body, mind and soul.

Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” This is one of my favorite life’s metaphors. Each piece of candy is filled with many delicious flavors (of life, outcomes, decisions, thoughts…) which are covered up by the sweet chocolate. Until you bite in and taste the piece you picked, you can’t really tell what you bitten into.

In February’s, March’s, April’s and May’s Paint Your Essence Workshops we will make four paintings that will connect YOU to YOUR own “box of chocolates” that describes these four areas of your amazing life. Attending one upto all four will create a delicious sweet tooth!

We just completed our HEART’s Essence and how it keeps on flowing. Now we are going to play will finding YOUR Essence’s Body Beautiful … so juicy. It is going to be sizzling.

Mar 19: Your BODY’s ESSENCE is getting it’s Groove on!

“The human body is the best work of art.” ― Jess C. Scott

Yep, our physiques are a work of art. Awesomeness. We are pretty solid and yet flexible. We can love our bodies and hate them at the same time.

Lets face it our body are a mean green working machine. We can work them to the bone. They are capable for much more than what we give them credit for. Like any machine, it needs to be taken care of otherwise it will breakdown, blow a gasket…is it all about survival?

I don’t just want to survive. I want to thrive, live every moment to the fullest. This body is the only one you get, so how can you be your body live a life of excellence? What does it take for your body to do what it needs to do to keep you moving and grooving? That is what we are going to explore in this Paint Your Essence.

To help you step into YOUR BODY’s physical self, we are going to be moving and grooving Bulesque style. We are going to dance and paint about our bodies.

Please note: This particular workshop is 10a-5p

Apr 23: Your MIND’s ESSENCE is Always Going Somewhere

Metaphor for your mind: “Row, row, row your boat…” Row YOUR Essence – Take control of YOUR ship – GRACEFULLY row down the stream of consciousness – Happily rowing YOUR boat – Shakespeare says “Tragedy is a comedy misunderstood” – Life is about YOUR dream – YOUR MIND’s ESSENCE is powerful and YOU have a CHOICE – A choice on how you want to see YOUR ESSENCE – YOUR LIFE!

Watch this fun video:

May 28: Your SOUL’S ESSENCE is Living Spectacularly

Metaphor for the soul: I see “The ocean is like life. It has it highs and lows. It comes in and out. The waves are like the ocean of consciousness.” Or Paramahansa Yoganada says “You can consciously know (experience) your soul – your true Self – by meditation. And when you know yourself as Soul, you will have discovered the presence of G-d with you (as you).

Let’s create some extraordinary life!
