A Prison of Our Own Making     January 16, 1PM-3PM


Ehmann, a graduate in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, created this course for anyone who wishes to discover their full potential, regardless of their age. A major part of his studies and applications has been in recognizing and changing "belief systems". All humans, beginning very early create beliefs and then systems of beliefs. Beliefs reside in the subconscious and have no basis in reality or fact. They do however present road blocks that limit our lives. Knowledge is power, knowledge of knowing how to alter your belief system will achieve revolutionary outcomes. This is a prerequisite course for a four part deepening in transformational tool, Living An Authentic Life.

If you think you know about the Calusa Indians that lived here for 25 centuries, think again

Ehmann will present the key points that form his forthcoming book of the same title. The first-ever book on the pre-history for the average reader, his book serves also as a history of the failed conclusions and models used by Florida archaeologists since the 1980, in order for the public to view the Calusa in the proper light, as the most significant hunter-gathering society in world history.  Ehmann's book by the same title will be available for purchase and signing.
