  • Achieve Your Dreams

    Achieve your Dreams! Abby Bloom, educator and coach, is holding a FREE 1-hour introduction prior to her two session class. In the introduction she will tell you about making some of her dreams come true, and ask you to think about what you would dearly love to do. Abby will then lead an interactive conversation identifying obstacles, both self- and society-inflicted. You will leave the introduction with sparkling new ideas that start you on the path to the realization of your most heart-felt dream. In the workshop participants will identify what they really dream of doing—something that seems out of reach—and then with more lively, thought-provoking discussion, Abby will help participants visualize a way to do what they'd love, and formulate a plan to the steps needed. Live the way you'd most like to live, and make your dream come true! • There is no charge for the introduction, but you must register for it to attend. • The introduction is not a prerequisite for the sessions. • You are not obligated to register for the workshop if you attend the introduction.
