7 Steps for Prosperity, Health and Freedom

A workshop designed to help you identify your goals and set you on the path to achieving them.

In today’s economy, it’s more important than ever to clarify your personal and professional goals — and commit to a plan that will get you there. Renowned businesswoman, international speaker and bestselling author, May McCarthy, will expertly guide you on the path to prosperity, health, and freedom.

For over 35 years McCarthy has built highly successful businesses – some as large as $100 million in annual revenues. McCarthy credits her success to daily spiritual practices — and she’s joining us in the spectacular Blue Ridge Mountains to share these practices with you.

Through group and individual exercises and a combination of practical and spiritual tools, McCarthy will help you discover how to:

  • Welcome a new partner to your advisory team: the all-knowing power of the universe.
  • Set up and activate a seven-step daily practice to achieve goals in every area of your life; including finances and work, how to build harmonious relationships and practical steps to maintain a healthy body and spiritual connection.
  • Refine your true purpose and overcome the fear of failure.
  • Eliminate old, limiting beliefs and behaviors.

By the end of the weekend you will have a deeper connection to the innate power of your intuition, and begin to understand what your responsibilities are and what you can leave up to the universe. Plus, you’ll have the tools you need to break through obstacles to realize your dreams!

Open to all.

A warning about using GPS!

We do not recommend using your GPS for driving directions, as many roads are incorrectly marked in the navigation system and inputting our address will take you on a wild ride. Instead, we recommend using Google maps (above). Many prefer to travel the Blue Ridge Parkway route only May through October since the road closes often in winter.
