Jobs Club is going to have Part 2 of the Healing Workshop held at Renaissance Unity on January 21, 2017.  It’s something else we do the first of the new year to release whatever pain/disappointments we endured in 2016 to start new and better for 2017.

Nikki Kopytek, founder of “Chula Chukras,” is going to be our speaker and healer for the event as she does her presentation on SEEING THE RAINBOW FROM HERE.  With her expertise she’s going to teach us that if we see darkness ahead of us because of the big changes that’s going to happen for the new year, we can also see the brighter sides of life and living colors within us to help us living a greater year.

We look forward to 2017 being a better year as we still continue to grow and learn.  Nikki will also do some demonstrations to help people (even job seekers) see the greater road ahead of us if we continue to learn, network, and see hope for the new year.

Part 1 of the Healing Workshop is also attached which is going to happen on January 14th at Unity of Royal Oak.  The speaker/healer of that workshop is Tammy Braswell.
