Health notes: Classes, events to boost body and mind

Interested in finding a greater purpose for yourself and creating the life you want?

Traci Sinclair Dyer, a certified life crisis/transition coach and master practitioner in the Energy Leadership Index, is offering a Lifetime Mastery Class taught over six consecutive Monday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. starting this Monday.

The Energy Leadership Index purports to develop a leadership style that will influence and change individuals and organizations.

The classes will be held at the Datex Business Center, 10300 49th St. N in Clearwater.

Each installment encourages answers to specific questions through self-discovery in a compassionate and nonjudgmental environment. The goal of the class is to give students the tools to leave the past behind and create the life they always wanted, right now.

Cost is $250. Register with a friend and pay $375 for both.
