Discovering the Family
You Never Knew You Had
In many ways, the person we've become is a reaction to our family of origin. Our story contains a blueprint set of instructions on how to think, be, and act with the world around us. We actually know very little about our families. Mostly what we know is the "front", or the stance, that our parents presented to us as they responded to events in their own lives.
Knowing more - going beyond that front - allows us to connect with the (sometimes broken) heart and soul of our family system. We need to know more to become more. Otherwise, unknowingly, we will just pass on the same front or stance to our children, perpetuating our family experience.
Thus, the exploration of family becomes a vital task, not just for yourself, but also for those that preceded you and those that are coming after you. Rather than falling predictably to your familial fate, rise to your family's destiny.
We will be holding a draw for Clearmind Currency at this event.

Setting the Goal: Turning Obstacles into Opportunities
When Alice approached the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland and asked the question at a crossroads, 'Which road shall I take?' the Cheshire Cat replied, 'Well where do you want to go?' Alice responded, 'I don't know where I want to go.' To that the Cheshire cat told Alice, 'Well any road will do then.'
Held captive in all obstacles is opportunity. Opportunity reveals itself if you observe the apparent obstacle from the perspective of the goal you want to reach. Most of us have no idea what our goal is and thus see obstacles as simply being obstacles. Asking ourselves when encountering difficulty the question: 'What is this for?' rather than 'Why did I create this?' allows for an entirely different and productive experience.
Those that succeed look forward to encountering these problems because they become stepping stones rather than walls. Join Catherine and Duane as they share some surprising thoughts about why you unconsciously sabotage your own success, and what it takes to move through these blocks and achieve what you really want.
