With featured speakers ranging from renowned self-development educator Dr. Wayne Dyer to celebrated medium and author James Van Praagh, the Celebrate Your Life! conference returns to the Valley on November 13-15, 2009 to enlighten, inspire and educate. The three-day event takes place at the sprawling JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix and includes keynote sessions, focused workshops and activities such as yoga and tai chi.
“This conference offers people practical skills to get through obstacles in their lives,” says creator and conference producer Liz Dawn. Dawn founded the company that coordinates the conference, Mishka Productions, with her mother and psychotherapist Ariel Wolfe more than eight years ago. Having lost her mother last year, Dawn is all-the-more devoted to providing attendees with a moving and life-changing experience. “I want people to emerge from this weekend feeling empowered with love and joy in their hearts,” she says.
Opening with an optional pre-conference workshop on Friday, the main conference gets underway that evening with a welcome and “Excuses Be Gone!” address by Dr. Dyer. Saturday features keynote lectures by bestselling author Iyana Vanzant (“Peace From Broken Pieces”) and financial planner and author Julie Murphy Casserly (“The Emotion Behind Money”). The final speaker, bestselling author and internationally renowned spiritual medium James Van Praagh, will close out the weekend with “Entering the Spirit Realm — Leave the Body, Free the Mind.” Post-conference workshops will also be available on Monday.
Throughout the weekend-long event, the conference will feature a bevy of heavy hitters from the relationship, personal growth and self-awareness arenas. Among the many presenters, KC Miller of the Valley’s own Southwest Institute of Healing Arts will address what interpretive toe reading can reveal about your life path, author and Oprah contributor Cheryl Richardson will explore the transformation that comes from shifting your consciousness and Dr. Judith Orloff will discuss the power of intuition and emotions in the healing process.
