Identity Architect Henry Clemmons will share 5 tools to help people transform their lives. He offers a process for becoming your ideal version of yourself through personal identity transformation. “Losing weight, eating healthier, these are not sustainable goals unless we become the person who identifies as “active” or “healthy”. We cannot sustain a diet on will-power alone, because life is always lurking in the shadows and waiting to pounce on us.” Henry provides every piece of the puzzle that people need in order to walk the path of becoming. Are you ready? Are you tired of being tired, of feeling heavy, or of being embarrassed? If you are ready, this may just be what you are looking for. Reawaken to possibilities and purpose and return to a state of vitality.

Medicine-making guidelines and all supplies will be provided. She will also offer “surprise” herb teas/cooling beverages for folks to try. (And if you ask, she likely will share the recipes for those as well.)
