Seminar - "Introduction to Radical Honesty" Returns!
Saturday, January 26th and Monday, January 28th

Multiple Sessions Offered
Don't miss it this time! Join Anne Bryer for a life-changing seminar on how to transform your life by telling the truth to those closest to you.

The truth not only has the power to set us free, it can also be a key to authentic relationships, a source of well being and a vehicle through which the powers of compassion and action can be positively manifested. This seminar is facilitated by Anne Bryer, a certified Radical Honesty trainer.

The seminar is based on Dr. Brad Blanton's best selling book which teaches a matter-of-fact and potentially liberating way of being honest. We will experience practical ways of authentic listening and speaking. We will explore useful techniques that allow us to notice things and events as they are versus thinking in a pre-conditioned, judgmental way.

Join us and gain the confidence and ability to tell people who are meaningful in your life what you honestly think and feel!

Cost is $10.00 per person
