Virginia Beach , VA

Best-selling author and motivational speaker Pam Grout, psychic and entrepreneur Cindy Griffith MA, mission-in-life teacher Mark Thurston PhD, Cayce teacher Cheryl Baer-Bernath, CHt, and Atlantic University instructor Rachel Vincintore, MS, give you the skills, tools, and motivation you need to embrace your calling and act on your dreams. Whether you are looking to change your life’s course or improve or expand your current livelihood, or you just want a spiritual “kick in the pants,” this is the program for you! 

You’ll explore how our world is a field of infinite possibilities that you can draw from to attract and create the things you desire—be it work, relationships, or health, and learn to consciously work with this energy. Your thoughts and beliefs provide the scaffolding that leads you to a Universe that is limitless, abundant, and accommodating.

This experiential weekend will help you build on that understanding to:

  • Use synchronicity and coincidence for guidance and insight
  • Let go of limiting beliefs and doubts and embrace your mission and calling 
  • Recognize how past-life experiences can influence today's opportunities
  • Follow your dreams and passions with confidence 

AND you will receive real, practical guidance for starting or reenergizing a spiritually based business in a full-day workshop from a mentor who has successfully created and managed her own business as an author, teacher, and intuitive reader. This is real-world guidance you can apply right away to transform a dream, passion, or hobby into extra income or a potential new life path—and help bring positive change to the world!


You can be as HAPPY and SUCCESSFUL as you make up your mind to be!
