Program Description

Many of us are mystified as to why what we want in life often seems out of reach. Get to the bottom of it all with Lauren Zander, author, life coach, and creator of the Handel Method®, and Laurie Gerber, head coach at Handel Group®, for a weekend workshop that leaves no stone unturned.

In their inimitable, honest, funny, no-holds-barred style, Lauren and Laurie will guide you, as you:

  • Learn the secret sauce to happiness: Personal Integrity®—the aligning of your head (plan), heart (desire), and body (actions)
  • Delve into a deep, life-changing process of crafting dreams for twelve areas of your life
  • Dream in more areas of your life than you ever let yourself imagine.

While it may be easy to think that we are our life’s biggest problem, we truly have no idea to what extent that is true—or realize that we are also the solution. In this workshop, draw your own road map to reach what you truly want in your life and identify what’s standing in your way. You’ll take home the tools you need to live true to your highest ideals for yourself.
