WW: Life Purpose Hand Analysis and Vision Boarding

Date: Wednesday, July 8
Time: 1000 - 13.00
Presenter: Jena Griffiths and Sue Rickenbacher  http://mypurpose.ch

Handprints will be made using ink sheets in order to identify your life purpose, life lesson, and corresponding mantra. (These sheets will be mailed to those participants in advance that register early, otherwise the prints will be made and analyzed at the beginning of the workshop). All participants will learn something positive and uplifting about themselves. Using Jena’s hand analysis, participants will create a vision board with Sue based on the Soul Coaching collage method. By setting your intention/focus with the physicality of images and words on the board, you are creating the feelings you wish to experience in the expression of your life purpose.

Jena Griffiths is a master hand analyst with 16 years of experience. Sue Rickenbacher is a certified Soul Coach.

WW: Supporting you Beautifully

Date: Tuesday, September 8
Time: 12.30 - 15.30
Presenters:  Brenda Sutter http://www.marykay.ch/Brenda.sutter
Anna-Marie Stephens http://www.bratique.ch

Join Brenda and Anna-Marie for a 3-hour joint workshop on beauty and bras.

During this time, Brenda will offer a “Beauty Bar” including foundation matching, plus all her favorite things to help you get ready naturally and fast!  Each guest can test the new Mary Kay eye gel patches! While Brenda is beautifying our faces, Anna-Marie will be beautifying us a little lower with proper bra fittings. Did you know 80% of women wear the wrong bra size, usually the band is too big and the cups too small. If you find your bra uncomfortable, digging in, and just can't wait to take it off, then you are probably in the wrong size. At the bra fitting, I will check your current bra fit and explain how a correctly fitting bra should look and feel, there will be some bras to try on and you will also learn about scooping and swooping. The fitting will take no more than half an hour and you will go away with some tips on what to check for when you are next lingerie shopping.

Brenda is originally from Texas, her previous job as a Dental Hygienist brought her to Switzerland and in 2004, she began her personal business with Mary Kay to have more flexibility and a career while raising 2 small children.  “This has been such an amazing opportunity for me to work with so many amazing women!!  I never dreamed it would be so much fun!!! Hope to meet you personally”.  Brenda Sutter, Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay.

Anna-Marie is originally from New Zealand and lived in the UK for 15 years before coming to Switzerland in 2010. She lives in Uster with her Welsh husband and 8-year-old daughter, she is a trained bra fitter and opened her own business, Bratique, in 2018, she’s passionate about lingerie, the lovely styles, and colors and focused on getting the message out that lingerie should be comfortable!

Both ladies have graciously offered a prize for a drawing. The first 10 women who register and attend the workshop will have their names entered into the drawing, the prizes will be one 50CHF gift certificate for “Mary Kay” and one 50CHF gift certificate for “Bratique”

Who can attend: Adults, Teenagers
Workshop Fee: Members CHF 20, Non-members CHF 30
Cancellation Deadline: March 28
