Author Events - Reveal: Embody the True Self

Beyond Trauma and Conditioning
Sunday
December 8

2 sessions

 

Empowered to speak my truth and guide others in their awakening, my life and my work are dedicated to up-leveling the consciousness of the planet.

- Harmony Kwiker, author

 

Learn with the author of a new self-help memoir, Reveal: Embody the True Self Beyond Trauma and Conditioning, the story of trauma, conditioning, and transformation. All of us are born fully connected with the Source that beats our heart. However, the trauma and conditioning of life split us from our connection with Source. Hear how she did the painful work of unwinding conditioned patterns in order to embody the True Self and surrender into the unfolding of life.

 

1-2:30 - Reveal Your True Self Meditation

Come experience a powerful meditation practice. Learn to connect with the authentic self — that part of us that is untouched by the experiences we’ve had in this life. We will access that wisdom that empowers us to create a life of joy, ease and freedom.

 

3-4:30 - Author event

Enjoy inspiring readings from the memoir, “I invite you to journey along with me on the path of awakening in this powerful self-help memoir. We become afraid of being in our full expression and standing in our truth and power, so we navigate life from a contracted, false place.” Books available for sale and signing.

 

Facilitated by Harmony Kwiker, a psychotherapist, relationship coach and Spiritual Evolutionist based in Boulder, CO.
