Emotional Mastery @ CMC in Edwards
Oct 28 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Class Description

The key to manifesting the life we want is to go to our core emotional patterns and change them. During this program you will be given a system, tools and techniques to see the unconscious emotional patterns, change habitual patterns, shift the experience of an emotion within seconds, develop the capacity to know how someone is feeling without them saying a word, learn how to respond rather than react negatively to others’ emotional states, and create a new emotional blueprint that will better serve you in life. Workshop includes a CD package valued at $149.

Research shows that mastering mental and emotional intelligence leads to:

  • Reduced stress
  • Greater focus
  • Increased capacity for decision making
  • Evolved levels of self-awareness
  • Emotional management
  • Effective communication

Your instructor, Mandy Benedict, has a deep passion for supporting people with the tools provided by Joey Klein’s Conscious Transformation. She works for her family’s business, Ruggs Benedict in Vail, Colorado, where she helps the business thrive by creating a strong network of relationships. Mandy is a certified Neshamah Healing practitioner and meditation teacher. While her ongoing successes fulfilled her in many ways, she intuitively felt there was more to life. In December of 2010, an opportunity to attend a weekend workshop with Joey Klein created new meaning in Mandy’s life. Within these teachings, she learned and embraced the true meaning of transformation, expansion and unconditional love. Her appreciation of this authentic joy and fulfillment inspires her to dedicate her life to sharing these teachings with others.
