Journaling Workshop – Self Sight

Journaling for Self Discovery and HealingJournalingImage

Nisa Support in collaboration with

Centre Communautaire Laurentien

is offering

Self Sight
Illuminating and harmonizing your self

About Self Sight:

SelfSight is a journaling adventure that offers enlightening insight into the many aspects of your Self.  It’s founded in the belief that Self-awreness and the cultivation of inner harmony are invaluable tools for personal growth and, ultimately, for our world.

The Importance of understanding the Self
To know, understand, and accept yourSelf is to have ultimate freedom.  It sets you free to be your best you, to tap into untold inner resources, and to experience everything around you from a new, illuminated perspective.

SelfSight will help you:
* Bring out and actualize the best in you
* Develop greater self-acceptance & build confidence
* Resolve inner conflict and break harmful patterns
* improve relationships
* Recognize how your emotions and perceptions influence your thinking and behavior
* Gain greater control over aspects of your personality
* Learn the positive elements of what you consider the negative parts of your Self
* Improve your inner peace

Nisa Toastmasters


Nisa Toastmasters is a newly-forming toastmasters club to help foster women’s growth  

We provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication, leadership skills, and greater self-confidence.

The club is part of Toastmasters International: a worldwide non-profit educational organisation dedicated to help people improve their communication and leadership skills.

Toastmasters is for anyone over the age of 18 and members come from all walks of life.

One thing they have in common however is a strong desire for self-improvement and helping others.

Whether you are speaking to your staff, your co-workers, or your kids, Toastmasters can help you do it better.

At Toastmasters you’ll learn to relax, plan, and present a terrific speech, whether you have 10 days to prepare – or just 10 seconds.

You’ll learn and practice in a friendly, comfortable environment with women who are there for the same reasons you are – to become better communicators.

Our meetings are held on: 

Wednesdays 6pm-8pm
