Manifest Your Best Life with Misha Stewart (Open)

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTONED TO A LATER DATE TBD. Please watch this site for updates!

Join Misha Stewart at William Blake Lodge and learn how to create a Vision Board!

Do you know what a Vision Board is? It’s a way to manifest your dream life! 

When you make a Vision Board you get clear on what you want to create in your life. Once you get clarity, you select images from magazines and paste them on a poster board. Seeing this board each day aligns your brain with the outcomes that you want to attract. 

It sounds pretty simple, and yes, there is a process to make your vision board more powerful! Oprah, Ellen DeGeneres, Jim Carey, and Beyoncé all swear by Vision Boards, so why doesn’t EVERYBODY create vision boards? Presenter Misha Stewart says, “In my experience as a coach and mentor, most of us never make the time. My clients frequently tell me they are pushed for time. What I’ve seen over and over is that we let our busy lives keep us, well… Busy and distracted. It’s time to change that!”

This event is a full day immersion for you to focus on your authentic life, core clarity, and ideal outcomes. 10:30am-6:30pm — Please arrive no earlier than 10:00am and no later than 10:25am. $75 admission; $70 for dues-current WBL members

Email Misha@mishastewart.com to register. Due to the deep nature of this work, only 15 spaces are available. (They’ll fill up fast!)
