Lagan, Constance Online Introductions: The New Blind Date Health & Fitness- Other,
Life Skills- Other,
Other
In the old days, single people often relied on friends and family to introduce them to potential partners. As we well recall, this introduction was greeted with a variety of emotions, from down-right fear to in-the-clouds excitement. It was known as the “blind date.” Today, the blind date is often replaced by online dating and what our friends and family often did for us in the past the computer now does. Whether you have been online for years, in the “should-I-really-do-this?” phase, or somewhere in between, this seminar provides you with information, caveats, step-by-step instruction and encouragement. Motivational speaker Constance Hallinan Lagan discusses the five top-rated online dating sites, photos, profiles and profile headers, winking versus e-mailing, phone conversations, the first meeting, conversation starters, online dating scams, and online dating safety tips.

Calamia, Maureen NEW! Introduction to Dowsing and Working with Energy Health & Fitness- Other,
Life Skills- Other,
Nature- Environment
In this workshop you will make your own set of dowsing rods and learn the basics of dowsing including working with human energy, energy from indoor spaces and with natural earth energy. We will have an overview of geopathic stress, how it affects your physical, emotional, and spiritual health and how you can detect it in your space. Most importantly, you will learn how your own energy affects everything you do and everyone and every space you come into contact with. Dowsing is an ancient practice, originally used (and still used to this day!) to detect water in the ground. However, the practice of dowsing is a pathway to learn about your spiritual self. Bring a pair of wire hangers that you’ll use to create your own rods.
