$13 early bird, $20 general admission

What if I could guarantee you will manifest 1 big, meaningful goal in the first 6 months of 2020?

  • What goal would you choose? 

  • What is a deep, desire you have in your heart for the way you want your life to feel?

The first place most people go wrong with their goals, is they don't set the right kind. You can have a long list of "things" you want to bring into your life OR you can set one BIG meaningful goal that will energetically shift YOU and bring in all kinds of amazing things along with it!

In this workshop, Michelle will share the 3 BIG mistakes people make when manifesting and help you choose your best goal for 2020 so that your precious time & energy are focused on the right thing.

**We will not be making art in this workshop. Michelle will help you set your best goal for 2020 and share her powerful art as manifesting process with you.**
