Avatar Pacific logo

3:00pm - Are You Interested in Improving the World? - International Avatar Course

It's not what you think, it's how you think.
Before you take on the World, you need to master your own mind.
The Avatar course is a set of practical, effective tools that allows people, in a very short time, to identify and change the conclusions, decisions and agreements that are shaping their lives.
They set new goals or revive old ones, and using their rediscovered powers, create opportunities, motivation, and the courage to pursue dreams.
But there is more to Avatar than personal development…
Now is your time.
“Allow yourself the gift of universal perspective. Wisdom will appear and your actions will be motivated by an intuitive, spontaneous, benevolent intent. There is no regret. Do useful things. Help others for the delight of helping others. Concentrate on adding value to the world rather than consuming the world.” - Harry Palmer

ManianWay

3:45pm - A New Way to Live - Manaian Way

This seminar involves information regarding a social change of direction that leads to the removal of many weekly living expenses.
We could remove the cost of rent, electricity and water through Phase 1, which is done by moving from ownership to guardianship.
Guardianship separates people from business and commerce so people will not be affected by interest rates, policy changes and housing bubbles.
When we become guardians we will not need as much money to live on and, therefore, job security will not be as important.
This leads to us having a new found power over corporations who are destroying our planets resources, as will will not need their work or their products.
