Lunchtime Guided Meditation Class taught by Prem Kalpa

Are you looking for some stillness, peace, spaciousness in your day?

Come along to this guided meditation class!

The focus will be on: yogic breathing, which is revitalising and energising; restoring balance in your Chakras (no understanding of Chakra’s required); mindfulness techniques; and visualisation may also be referred to during the class.

Typically in Prem’s classes, there is a focus on breath, sound and the energetics of your body to create an uplifting, grounding and releasing meditation that will shift your mindset and your energy levels for the rest of your day.

Kim Lear, Business Development and Deployment Strategist at Palantir

A cross-Tasmanian/Melbournian by background, Kimberley has spent the last five years working at Palantir Technologies, one of the world’s most intriguing Silicon Valley companies. Her focus throughout this time has been within the Government side, and how to grow the business successfully for remote teams – which has seen her travel across Australia, New Zealand, USA, UK, Israel, and most recently, the Netherlands. Kimberley’s interest is in the “what’s next” – from an unstable start-up to a successful business, how do you ensure that your company is fostering the right environment internally during fast growth stages. Prior to Palantir, Kimberley worked within Australian Intelligence, so between the male-dominated intersection of Defence and Technology, she has some experience in navigating difficult settings.

Sidekicker is a website that allows you to request temporary staff, after which the system matches you with relevant workers to choose from, within hours.

Jacqui’s focus on the customer experience and continuous improvement helps drive the strategic direction of the Sidekicker. She has overseen a 98.6% completion rate of jobs, spread awareness of the Sidekicker brand through her PR and marketing efforts and heads up the Sydney team to drive growth of Sidekicker along the eastern seaboard. Jacqui has fast become a trailblazer for women entrepreneurs in the technology scene and a thought leader on startup marketing.

Turn ON Your Life – Lecture by Prem Kalpa & Rosa McGill

What if you knew that a woman’s sex is her power? And that connecting to that power would give you more connection, vitality and turn on for life? What if you knew it was possible to actually have what you want?

As women, we are hungry for sex… just not the sex that is on the menu. We sense more is available, but we’re not sure how to access it. And we know men are hungry too. We all want to “turn the lights on”.

This evening, discover the practice of Orgasmic Meditation (OM) – a clearly defined, easily repeatable method for cultivating female Orgasm. And by Orgasm, we don’t just mean that brief moment of climax, but a fullness of hydration, sensation and ignition in your sex… and your life.

Learn:

• How to get out of your head and into your body (with its natural intelligence)

• How to ask for exactly what you want

• What creates the deepest connection (it’s not what you think)

• How to move through shame and follow your desires

• Why truth is the greatest turn on

• How you can have more intimacy whether you’re single or coupled

Join us for a intelligent, insightful and playfully provocative evening all about the things we want to talk about most… but rarely do. Come listen, engage and turn ON!

$10 cash at the door. Everyone welcome.

Free Webinar: How to Start a Successful Coaching Practice

When I first started my business as a coach I remember how daunting it was to imagine putting myself out there in the world. How scary it felt to stand out and be visible and tell people what I’m passionate about – for me that’s reconnecting people with their desire and passion for living through the principles of orgasmic meditation.

It was hard to talk about what I wanted to do with friends and family because it felt so outside of the box. I didn’t know what to say. I heard about “elevator pitches” and setting up a business and it all felt very overwhelming.

Slowing I found my way. I learned from friends who had made the journey before me and worked with a business coach who helped me to get set up. I learned about online marketing and sales, and began to put one foot in front of the other on the journey. I want to share with you what I learned along the way.

Join me for this webinar where I’ll tell my story of starting a successful coaching practice and answer questions about how you can build yours!

This call is part of a weekly series every Wednesday morning at 8am in Australia, or 3PM in California, 6pm in NYC.
