  • CÓMO ENCONTRAR LA INMENSA FORTALEZA NATURAL QUE LLEVAMOS DENTRO
  • Estan cordial y gratuitamente invitados
  • Sábado 9 de Julio/2016 - Hora: 9:00 a.m. a 7:30 p.m. 
  • Mis queridos amigos: es muy grato poder invitarlos a compartir la importancia del conocimiento de lo que tenemos cada uno dentro de nosotros, entre lo físico y lo biológico para captar la naturaleza científica de nuestra espiritualidad, tal como lo expresa el científico Bruce Lipton, y/o la importancia de la conexión que podemos lograr desde nuestra mente y corazón (espíritu) hasta nuestro cuerpo para convertir cualquier enfermedad en total salud y feliz satisfacción en nuestra vida, tal como lo expresa y lo vivió el Dr. Joe Dispenza.

    Con base en las enseñanzas de estos mundialmente reconocidos profesionales encontramos igualmente nueve (9) reconocidos neurocientíficos, psicólogos latinoamericanos que estarán presentes en el EXPO-CONGRESO HISPANO CIENCIA Y ESPIRITUALIDAD - ECHCE, ellos son: Arturo Nava, Dra. Silvia Casabianca, Luis Villamizar, Magda Guadarrama, Andrés Ramirez Ordoñez, Joanna Acevedo, Carlos Piña, Dr. Angel Sanchez y la Dra Mavelynne Orozco Urdaneta, quienes con sus conferencias nos llevarán a entender la inmensa fortaleza natural que llevamos dentro y como sacarla a flote para lograr nuestra salud y felicidad natural, real, auténtica y consistente y entrar a un siguiente nivel de nuestras vidas.

    Y tengo que agregarles que este enfoque maravilloso para nuestras vidas va dirigido también a los menores de 10 años en adelante, especialmente aquellos que han sido abandonados por sus padres y que necesitan saber cómo orientar desde su corazón sus vidas. Niños y niñas a quienes estamos invitando. Y aquellos que no puedan asistir les haremos llegar estas valiosas conferencias.

    Los esperamos a todos!
