Own Your Story: Vancouver workshop hosted by Ruby Fremon

My lovely spiritual sister Ruby Fremon is a transformational life coach as well as an energy healer and will be in Vancouver Saturday November 7th, 2015 hosting a workshop from 11 am – 1 pm Further information can be found at The growth I have seen arise in Ruby over the years I have known her is very telling of her work. She has helped many, including myself come to terms with accepting and creating positive change in life and taking full control of your own actions. Living authentically and self-empowerment is the major gains I’ve received from our relationship. I encourage you all to take a look at what she has to offer and step outside of your comfort zone. Especially, if you find yourself in a never-ending cycle/rut and are looking for a new direction to take/new approach that works.
