This workshop will enable you to lean into you, to help you begin to discover your courage, and find your inner voice. 

Prior to the workshop Anne, Kinesiologist / Intuitive Healer, will use her NEW inner voice technology to analyse your voice frequencies, and will provide each guest with a report (during the workshop) which will display three notes or octaves that are excessively out of balance (or over compensated) as well as the main octave that is being suppressed. Guests will walk away from the workshop with meditation music to assist them in re-balancing their frequencies. 

The workshop will also include:

  • Journaling
  • Group Discussion / Group Work 
  • Meditation 

Presenter Bios: 

  • Anne Barratt: Award winning owner and practitioner at Empowering Health. I Empower you to identify and release blocks to the health of your emotional balance, body, relationships, business success, and life 

– resulting in long lasting change 

– and often creating a ripple effect to the benefit of your family.
