Seed Waikato February Event

  • Chartwell Room, Hamilton Gardens Hungerford Crescent Hamilton, Waikato, 3216 New Zealand (map)



It is now, as a new year folds out in front of us, that we must take stock of the year that was. We must reflect, honestly and bravely. We must own the story that was our 2017. We must acknowledge the tricky parts of last year with kindness and with the absence of shame. With reflection comes clarity. And with clarity comes conviction. This conviction will shape our 2018 with goals that reflect our truth. If we can stand in our truth, if we can own the tricky parts of our life bravely, we can make them our source of strength moving into 2018. This is the year of YOU! This is an opportunity for you to stand in YOUR truth!
