Welcome to our first monthly newsletter. 

We are so excited about bringing to you our new monthly newsletter. It is particularly relevant being spring as this is a time for new beginnings. Once again nature shows us by example what Spring is for. Everywhere you look around new beginnings are unfolding. Your gardens are beginning to bloom, animals are birthing their young and there is a warmth in the air mingled with the freshness of Spring. See our Personal Empowerment tip for more on this...

This is also a time for new beginnings for us here at the Personal Empowerment Institute. Our aim is to provide you with the most up to date information through workshops and programs we offer, regular newsletters, as well as movies that inspire truth at the 'Cinema for the Soul', to allow you and your families to live your lives with as much freedom, love and abundance that you choose. My heart feels full as we offer to you our new newsletter. It is full of information about what programs we offer, happenings at the Cinema, tips for Personal Empowerment and Social Events at which it is our desire to provide an opportunity for a community of like minded people all wanting the best out of themselves and their lives to come together on a regular basis.

In the calendar section, you will see a few new workshops that we are very excited to be offering. The 'Power Of Vulnerability' weekend workshop was born out of desire to share with people that in your Vulnerability lies your strength. Most people think that to be vulnerable is to be weak yet the opposite is actually true. Your ability to be vulnerable can and does set you free to be yourself no matter who you are communicating with. Our Body Energetics series is a powerful, hands on experience that will allow you to delve into the magical realm of your body consciousness! 

I hope you enjoy our newsletter, as much as we have enjoyed creating it.

With love and vitality for the coming month,

Authentic Power Weekend

21st – 23rd September

One thing all ancient philosophies agree on is the teaching “Man Know Thyself”. The most important relationship you will ever have is the one you will have with your Self. Your relationship with yourself forms the basis of all your relationships-romantic, family, friends, business, even your relationships to money and life. If you make this one functional the rest will follow. The purpose of this weekend is to deepen your connection to your self by making known your deeper limiting and negative Core Beliefs that are running your thinking hence your life.  As you begin to peel back the layers of your past, you will begin to find a sense of freedom in everything that you do in life, an opening up of your reality on all levels... Whether relationships, money, life purpose or inner fulfillment be your focus, everything will begin to flow with ease.

Time:  Friday evening 7.00pm to 11.00pm, Sat/Sun 9.30am to approximately 7.30pm

Venue:  Wallsend Community Health Centre, Nash St, Wallsend
Investment:  $595 

Re-attend: $200

One of the most inspiring & positive experiences I have had. I feel enormously grateful." Rohan Dempster Clinical Psychologist, Australian Correctional Management W.A.

What an awesome weekend! Thank you Phil for offering such a great workshop. Words cannot describe the gift you have given to me through this workshop. It was definitely a powerful & enlightening experience. Justine Pollard, Newcastle

I’ve received so much understanding about myself over this weekend. Now that I understand the process and feel safe and relaxed enough to look, layers of myself are revealing themselves for healing. With each new workshop that I do, I move closer and closer to freedom within. Thank you for your support and encouragement to gain personal empowerment. Sharon Healey - Newcastle
The "Power of Vulnerability" Weekend

NEWCASTLE: 13th – 14th  October

To be vulnerable is to operate from your real self. This is where you are true to yourself and your own needs. Most people think that to be vulnerable is to be weak yet the opposite is actually true. Your ability to be vulnerable can and does set you free to be yourself no matter who you are communicating with. During this 2 day workshop we will begin to explore the steps to accessing “The Power of Vulnerability.” You will begin to find your real self in expressing your core truth, explore the key to self confidence in every moment and discover how the phrase “Telling my truth heals myself and others” naturally works always. You will learn that in your Vulnerability lies your strength and how to discover what your truth is and how to express that appropriately.

Time:  9.30am to 6.00pm both days

Venue:  Wallsend Community Health Centre, Nash St, Wallsend
Investment:  $595

What I got out of it was such depth and understanding of who we truly are, and how to set yourself free of all the past hurts, negative experiences and, loss of self worth and much more. To be able to feel free and peaceful was great. The information and tools I received is a true blessing to me that will continue to help me throughout my journey of life.  Lyn Norris-Newcastle

Personal Empowerment Tip

As I mentioned Spring is a time for new beginnings. Traditionally we “Spring Clean” after our months of Winter hibernation. We clean our homes, we plant new seeds in the ground to grow, we begin a lighter diet and start getting more active. It is a time for bringing fresh energy into your life, a time for you to plant your seeds and begin any projects you may have been thinking about. For some it may be a commitment to a healthier lifestyle, for others it may be a new business idea or career change. It may be simply committing to clearing out some clutter in the space you live in so new ideas can come in. 

Remember a clear space free of clutter equals a clear mind.  

Social Events

Our aim is to provide regular social gatherings so that we can connect and share with one another. In keeping with the Spring theme we thought it appropriate to organise a gathering in the bush. So on Sunday September 30th we are heading to the Watagan Mountains for a BYO BBQ lunch and bushwalk. We will meet at 10am, do some bushwalking then kick back and relax over a BBQ.

Please email us info@personalpower.com.au to confirm your attendance and I will send you details of exactly where we will be meeting and what to bring. We hope you will join us. 

Keep an eye out here for details of our Christmas get together. Please also let us know if you have any suggestions for a social gathering over the coming months.

Please forward this email to your friends however they won't be added to our contact list unless they choose to sign up.
