    Speaker - Matthew McCarthy

    Sometimes we resign to the grip of the past and the 'fact' that some relationships are a struggle. Of course, this doesn't feel good. We give up because we don't know the way or we have convinced ourselves we do while struggles continue. Come and explore how nurturing a state of love is the solution to all personal and worldly problems. A transformed life is a light for the world with many returns. You will be empowered with a very simple and reliable takeaway to totally transform your entire life - really. The con-artist inside may express doubt due to past attempts failing, or a belief that things are as good as they can get. I will show you otherwise. The possibilities are worth it - come hang out!.
