“Have you reached a point in your life where you KNOW it’s time for a change? Maybe even a radical change? I can relate. I not only see it out there in the world, but I’m living it. Big time. You’ve probably heard the term ‘reinvention.’ You can reinvent all aspects of your life – your career, your money, your health, your relationship – really, EVERYTHING! But HOW do you start? How do you even know HOW you want to reinvent your life? Well, I want to talk about that with you, in this talk on June 21st! I’ll be sharing some very personal details about my own life – personal and professional – so that you understand why I’m so passionate about this, and why the world is about to experience Bob Doyle in entirely new ways! I’m nervous about it, but excited – and it’s way past time to take this on. What about you?

Are you clear that it’s time for some major changes? Are there areas in your life where things seem to be falling apart, or where the ‘old ways’ just aren’t working anymore?

Well, you’re not alone – I’m right there with you. Together, I believe we can make some major strides!”

“Living Without Walls”

Lynn Rose, TV & Radio Host, Celebrity Media Trainer and founder of “The WOW Factor” (WOW is an acronym for “With Out Walls”) shares with you how her journey through a challenged childhood, eating disorders and subsequently being paralyzed by fear, eventually led to shedding the walls that had kept her from living from her true self and what she discovered as the source to living powerfully, authentically and fearlessly, no matter what comes up for you, no matter what circumstances and no matter what past you have behind you. Her life-changing work has been experienced and helped transform some of the top leaders in the personal growth industry.

In this hour, she’ll share with you:

  • Why we shut down and why we build walls around who we really are.
  • How our need to control can often be what’s brewing under the surface and holding us back, and how we can come to terms with that so we can feel safe sharing all of who we are.
  • The secret distinction to dissolving those barriers that stand in your way so that you can now access your full self-worth, your passion, purpose and power and realize the health and life you want.
  • The importance of listening to your heart and following what signals and synchronicities show up along the way.
  • How to “WOW” your health, your life and your success (and what that means).

You’ll be hearing distinctions and stories that Lynn has never shared before…and will leave you on fire for a life with renewed possibility and perspective

“Raising Healthy Children and Families in Today’s World”
The Importance of Our Children’s Well-Being

Learn why our children’s well-being is so crucial to proper development and long-term health.

Creating lifelong healthy habits begins in infancy and early childhood. Self-Care begins as team-care with parents learning to support the child’s innate bio-social-emotional rhythms of sleep-wake cycles, hunger-satiety cycles and emotional reactivity. These fundamental rhythms of life build the core foundation of the child’s sense of competency and efficacy and are essential for successful self-care practices.

We will explore the impact of these key bio-social rhythms on the child’s ability to cope with the ups and downs of daily life. We will elaborate the specific links between these biologic processes and their impact on health & wellness. Finally, we will provide strategies for parents to identify, facilitate & promote each of the three rhythms as well as their integration.

Kirtan with Sita and Jeff

Closing Ceremony

Sita has been leading chanting in the US for the past 20 years, and has lead evenings of chanting in Singapore, Ubud, Bali and India. Sita started within the Hindu tradition of kirtan and then expanded out to all traditions to reach broader audiences. She blends sacred poetry into her evenings, weaving a tapestry of chant and spoken word that is both powerful and celebratory. She has been a teacher in the art of chanting for the last three years. Her classes allow people to become more fluid in their own ability to sing.

A native of Ireland, she feels that her voice comes out of her Celtic roots; its full resonance harkens to an ancient, earthy form of song. She is a disciple of Neem Karoli Baba and has performed with Krishna Das, Ram Dass, and Baghavan Das.
