OTHER SEMINARS OFFERED:
The Art of Listening
Did you ever stop to think what the quality of your life would be like if you could listen more effectively? What if a shift in the way you listen made life easier, so that you were more successful at work, in social situations and in your personal relationships? The Art of Listening is a dynamic interactive workshop where you will discover the fundamental keys to effective listening and the barriers that prevent us from having satisfying communication with those around us. This seminar will apply the Principles of Transformation so that the act of listening will naturally and effortlessly expand your ability to access the moment and experience a sense of well-being.
I have a hearing disability. Without my hearing aids, I have only 5% of hearing in one ear
and 25% in the other, and with my hearing aids I have about 50% in both ears. When I listen to a
conversation I cannot hear every word that is being said, and what I have discovered about
listening is that it is not about how much you can hear but about how much you are willing to let in
what the other person has to say, without judging it or commenting on it.
When you are truly listening magic happens. If you can really hear what a person is saying
your judgments on yourself and others disappear and this is a space for transformation, aliveness,
and the completion of things. I thank the Kanes for supporting me to move past having a hearing
"disability" into being an effective listener and communicator.

–Zuta G., Fitness professional
This weekend was amazing... I always thought of excellence as an end product. An example would be a dance I was working on. If the end product was excellent, it would have been ok if I stressed myself out. That's not the case. For example, I had a habit of arriving late to work; I realized that's not excellence to be late...I am cheating myself by being behind at work. Even now I am emailing this on my lunch hour only. That's a step towards excellence.
–Rashmi M., Claims Examiner, NJ Dept. of Labor

Fun as the Access Way to EnlightenmentSounds like a novel idea doesn't it? Most of us have the idea that the attainment of Enlightenment or Self-Realization has to be arduous, difficult, take a long time and that it is hard to attain. The middle word in enlightenment is "light" and to approach enlightenment one needs a lightness of spirit. It cannot be serious or hard work. This course does not require meditation or any other self-improvement technique. It only requires your willingness to have fun.
Now I am convinced that I can't be truly successful and not have fun!

Attending Live in the Moment Not in Your Thoughts in Hamburg, Germany was one great gifts that I given to myself. I am not sure what happened during the workshop, and cannot put my finger on it, but I feel fundamentally different, like something inside me shifted. When I came back to my life here in Manhattan, everything was brilliant yet calm and peaceful. The outside circumstances had not changed but I feel like a weight was lifted from my being. Life is a breeze and it feels so real! And the coolest thing is that it gets better every day! If anyone had ever told me life could be like this, I would not have believed it.

This seminar will.

–Katie B., Architect
–Joe C., New York, NY
At the end of the simplicity workshop, I felt a sense of complete well being. I had been feeling pretty dim this past fall and sought out the Kanes because continuing to live a dim life was not going to cut it. The Monday after the seminar I walked outside my front door and felt like I walked into a pop up book of my neighborhood and life. Everything was super 3-D. People I don't know were saying hi to me on the street and I began taking care of the members that attend the fitness classes I teach, just being there for them. Attendance in one of my classes increased by 3x since last week. I could go on and on with evidence that living in the moment is working for me!!! I'm loving and living it!
–Zuta G., Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer
Step Into Your BrillianceTell the truth: You know that you are brilliant...at least in some moments or about some things. But that reality gets eclipsed by the internal dialogue that doubts whether you have done it right, said it right, are good enough, and questions whether you will ever live up to your potential – the conversation that complains about the smallest of things, especially and including how you are going about your life. Until you discover how to consistently disengage from this conversation, you will not be able to master the expression of your brilliance. This course is designed to free you from that internal chatter so that you can indeed discover the incredible being that you are. It is devoted to allowing you to step into your brilliance not just occasionally, not just when you feel secure – but all of the time. This course is for anyone who wants to experience and express their brilliance as a lifestyle, moment–to–moment, rather than being stuck in memories of the past or worries about the future. This seminar will empower and enable you to create possibilities that heretofore did not exist.
Summertime – and Your Life is Easy Special Themed EveningWhen you were young, summer was the time for long play days, sunshine and endless possibilities. So how did it get so stressful?

Tell It Like It Is: The Power of Being Clear and Direct
Wouldn't you just love to communicate in a clear, straight-to-the-point, engaging way – whether speaking in public, or just telling a friend that they have spinach in their teeth? Most of us don't just say what we have to say because we're worried that we'll sound stupid, or won't be liked. Or that being truthful with someone means being harsh and hurtful. (Not true!). Think how you sit up and listen when someone says exactly what they mean. Or just straight-up tells the truth. They really make an impact. And you can, too! In this seminar, you'll learn the art of expressing yourself clearly and directly. Discover how powerful you can be in your communications, and everywhere else in your life.

Their expert guidance has helped me create a level of excellence I never dreamed was possible. My ability to listen and work well with my colleagues has improved 'dramatically'. They are pure magic!
–Roderick H., Actor
As an artist, I used to see my 9 to 5 job as a "day job" that paid the bills and got in the way of my artistic expression. After attending the Transformation in the Workplace seminar, I found deep fulfillment in my work, my productivity increased and I felt a desire to learn and excel within the corporate world. Ironically, my artistic endeavors are also flourishing as a by-product of the great satisfaction I receive from working at the bank. For all those who have thoughts like, 'I wish I loved what I do', I highly recommend this seminar.
–Colleen C., Loan Operations Administrator, Société Générale
The Transformation in the workplace Seminar literally transformed not just my work experience, but the way I relate work to life. I am more productive, more appreciative and I truly enjoy my job and the friendships I have made in it. As a young professional, I am reminded that I often need more experience. The experience I had with the seminar may never show up on a resume, but it is the reason I am very successful in my job.
