Feel Good About Yourself by Understanding who you are

Our latest event is going to be a great opportunity for you to gain useful insights into the future and what’s left of 2019. Guest speaker Nick Haines will explain how this current year is pivotal as we are coming to the end of a 12-year cycle. He will give some guidance to considering important questions like:

“What is stopping you moving forward and how is that showing up for you this year?”  
“What aspects of yourself are you going to struggle to meet and how are you going to rise up to meet any challenges?”
“Where is best to focus your energy for positive feedback?”

Poster Invite for April

Nick’s subject is about the difficulties some of us can have in feeling good about ourselves. His premise is that when you understand yourself more deeply, any insights you gain will help boost your self esteem.

Nick’s background has been in acupuncture and Chinese philosophy having founded the Northern School of Acupuncture over 30 years ago. Moving on from simply working on people’s individual health and well-being, Nick studied the patterns of people’s lives through his deep understanding of thousands of patients. This, together with his knowledge of the eastern study of five elements led to him creating the Five Institute where he offers a unique profiling service called the Vitality Test. 

You go online and the results of the questionnaire provide you with extremely valuable insights into what drives and motivates, as well as what might predispose towards different ways of being. Add to this his knowledge of the changing energies of each year, using the 12-animal system of Chinese astrology, and you can get very powerful information to guide you in understanding not only yourself, but also how things change in cycles. Knowing where we are in a particular cycle and how we can adapt is extremely helpful.
Do you free Vitality Test online NOW
Our invitation is for you to take a few moments before the event on Wednesday and do your profile for free on the Five Institute website. Bring the insights with you on Wednesday …and be prepared to receive some brilliant wisdom that will indeed make you feel good.  I always find Nick’s insights immensely helpful personally. Forewarned is always forearmed, as they say! It is going to be a great night.
