Isabela Keski-Frantti has been a Sacred Circle Dance facilitator for over 15 years. She has learnt from three masters of Circle Dance, who had their unique styles in teaching. She has also learnt Sacred Dances from traditional Brazilian indigenous people and African descendant dancers in Brazil. Before moving to Australia in 2004, Isabela lived in Brazil, where graduated in Psychology and experienced teachings of shamanism. In Australia, her knowledge of the Australian Bush Flowers and Holistic Counselling has enhanced the dances with the subtle spiritual realm of Nature and the flowers. Her passion for C. G. Jung, groupwork and experiential learning makes her a dynamic and creative facilitator.

Isabela invites you to

• Embody the Spirit of the Dance as a way of meditating

Saturday 26th April

1pm Martina Guralnek presents - The Four Energy Archetypes

Have you ever wondered why some things in life are easy and others are difficult?

Why you naturally connect with some people and not with others?

By uncovering and learning about your energy archetypes you will receive a map of your world where relationships, loved ones, career and environment can be understood and experienced with more clarity.

The four energy archetypes identify behavior so precisely it’s often seen as a mind-reading tool. Imagine using this knowledge to understand and connect with anyone. It allows you to see the unconscious reasons for why we do what we do and what our individual natural strengths and weaknesses are. Learn how you may be spending your energy unnecessarily and how to use it more appropriately.

Many people who have attended this workshop have gained a greater understanding of themselves, their loved ones and how to communicate with each other. They find the information valuable for their day-to-day lives and how they see the world and other people.

Martina Guralnek is a human behavioral expert. As a certified NLP Practitioner, transformational life coach, EDISC Behavioral Profiler and spiritual channel, Martina will provide you with various different ways to improve your life through using the power of your mind.
