The One Thing Holding You Back: Unleashing the Power of Emotional Connection

May 04 - 06, 2018 Begins in 2 months
with Raphael Cushnir

Do you have an unrealized dream? Are you still waiting to tap your full potential?
“Almost always, what prevents us from manifesting our greatest life vision is a reservoir of unfelt emotion," writes Raphael Cushnir. "Resisting this emotion is what sabotages prayer, affirmations, or any other personal-growth technique. Finding and feeling this emotion is what infuses our mission with Spirit and makes us truly unstoppable. It’s simple, but most of us never learn precisely how — not at home, school, or even in therapy."
