Create a Life you Love Workshop @ Poundon House
Feb 17 @ 2:30 pm – 5:30 pm
Create a Life you Love Workshop @ Poundon House

Are you looking to:
• Kickstart a fresh approach to living?
• Learn techniques to make change happen?
• Uncover your self-belief to thrive not survive?

If so, this interactive workshop is for you!

There isn’t a manual for living a happy life and I certainly don’t have a magic wand, but I can share my practical framework to help you create a life that you truly love, gain clarity on where you want to go and how you can get there.

Through a combination of short seminars and practical break-out sessions you will get to know yourself better, acquire the tools to live authentically, boost your self-belief and confidence as well as learn how you can make changes that last a lifetime rather than a few days or weeks.

If you want to be motivated, inspired and educated so that you can start on your journey this is the place for you!

I hope you can join me on Sunday 17th February, 2:30-5:30pm at Poundon House, Bicester, OX27 9BB

There is limited availability so grab your ticket today. If you have any questions please get in touch at roo@yourlifejourney.co.uk

You can follow me on Instagram at @roo_yourlifejourney and on Facebook at Your Life Journey.
