4. OWNING YOUR SUPERPOWER
Friday, April 27, 2018, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
As women, we know we are emotional beings, but why do so many of us apologize for crying, hurting, feeling sad or angry? We almost believe the myth that feelings get in the way of getting things done! But, research is now showing that having high emotional intelligence and being able to identify and express our feelings can shift us out of unproductive moods and into full aliveness with a better ability to deal with life’s challenges. Come join Jillian Eichel, life coach with the Wright Foundation, and the community at Mashallah to learn about the power of emotional intelligence and the benefits that come with feeling our emotions. Learn more HERE.
