Topic: New Years Goal Setting for Ourselves, Our Practices and ASPH

Tuesday, January 6, 2009 | 7:00 p.m.


"Law of Attraction" with Hypnosis with Patti Freeman


If you have been trying so hard to create a joyous, fulfilled, abundant life but have not achieved the results you desire, it is most likely because you have lacked an essential understanding of the Law of Attraction. Just imagine now is the time for you to receive what you always dreamed of Financial Freedom, Increased abundance, Personal Success and much more. Pattie will show you how to full fill your dreams, live your life to the fullest and get what you truly want.


"Creating Financial Abundance Through Emotions" with Don Rice


There are thousands of very intelligent, well trained people living below the poverty line while many uneducated folks make a wonderful living helping others. Research shows that your emotions control your success and Don will present a success hypnosis session that can put you on the path to a better life.


"Accomplishing Your Sound Nutritional and Exercise Program for the New Year" with Dr. Sam Sterk
Exercising and eating right is a matter of choice as is the human potential for both living longer as well as being more content. Come and participate in a program that will help you adhere to your sound nutritional and exercise program. Those individuals that are at their optimum weight can still benefit by learning to adhere and commit to an exercise program throughout the year.

Meeting Minutes

December 2, 2008


Simply put … we had a blast! If you weren’t there, you missed out. This meeting was all about the fun we have together as hypnotists/hypnotherapists.


We ate and laughed and emptied out our closets of the white elephants that had been collecting for a few years.


Next month we have to be somewhat better behaved, but with this group, that’s to be seen. So be sure to join us next month and see how we behave!


Respectively submitted,

Debbie Gent
