LA DOLCE VITA: A Night of Awakening Creativity
It's time to wake up and remember to play.
CORAL GABLES, Fla., May 4, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Join S.H.I.N.E. Networking Inc. for A Night of Awakening Creativity guided by author Meg Nocero of The Magical Guide to Bliss and Butterfly Awakens, "A Happying Event" meant to inspire guests to awaken to La Dolce Vita and come alive to the beauty of dreams while remembering to play. This event will take place at the Books & Books in Coral Gables, Florida, on May 5, 2023, at 7 p.m.
When Miami resident Meg Nocero lost her mother to breast cancer, she found grief a force to be reckoned with, one that shifted her priorities from a successful but demanding career as an immigration attorney for the federal government to focus on her physical and mental health and find her bliss. Nocero created a guide, The Magical Guide to Bliss, seven years ago. After she followed it, she wrote Butterfly Awakens: A Memoir of Transformation Through Grief ($18.95, She Writes Press, September 2021), a unique story of what she discovered during this journey that brings readers through the grief process, her rejection of a toxic work environment, struggles with a medical diagnosis and a determination to place her faith in intuition. Nocero invites everyone to come along and come alive to the beauty of life and, of course, there will be dancing.
Under Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar of the Happiness Studies Academy, Nocero studied the science of happiness and created this "Happying Event," a presentation based on the S.P.I.R.E. elements of whole-being happiness: Spiritual, Physical, Intellectual, Relational, & Emotional.
In that respect, S.H.I.N.E. Networking Inc. is pleased to host international painting artist Hector Prado, who will do a live painting. In addition, music artists Jon Saxx, Ava Simone, and DJ Lawrence Newberg will be performing. Dr. Ceci Shaw, author of "The Spell" and Quantum Energy Medicine Practitioner; Mike Zubi, lead instructor at Rode and motivational guru; and David Landau, editor extraordinaire, will present as well. It will be a night full of creativity, music, and dancing.
S.H.I.N.E. Networking and Meg Nocero are excited to invite everyone for an evening of magical inspiration. Enjoy the lite bites and BUTTERFLY drinks and PLAY. Meet the creatives and get inspired to begin your own journey. The Board of S.H.I.N.E. Networking Inc. will also present the 2023 Inspiration Award to actor and director Miguel Luciano for his role as teacher and director with the kids in Miami for over 15 years.
