MEREDITH — Life coach Emily Clement at Grace Wellness Center in Meredith is offering a seven-week workshop The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. The seven-week series will meet on Wednesday evenings (excluding Thanksgiving evening), 6-7:30 pm, starting Wednesday, October 29. The cost of the seven-week series is $125.
Clement says many of us grew up with the belief that achieving success requires relentless hard work, grim determination and intense ambition. ''As a result, we may have struggled for years and even reached some of our goals but wound up feeling exhausted, our lives out of balance. As Deepak Chopra observes in his transformational book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, such desperate striving isn't necessary or even desirable. In the natural world, creation comes forth with ease. A seed doesn't struggle to become a tree―it simply unfolds in grace.''
She says that the Seven Spiritual Laws are powerful principles people can use to fulfill their deepest desires with grace and ease. Each week is dedicated to one of the seven spiritual laws. Participants will discuss the law, experience a 15-minute meditation, and complete a creative project.
