Empowering Your Life® is a newly updated 3-day seminar
by Dr. Matt James and Tris Thorp with The Empowerment Partnership.

It's time to do the things you've always wanted to do. Life's too short for regrets. What would you be doing with your life if you knew you couldn’t fail? The Empowering Your Life® weekend enables you to:

・Get in touch with – and better manage your emotions
・Overcome baggage by letting go of negative emotions and limiting beliefs
・Learn what is important to you by revealing your deepest values
・Creating an action plan for achieving your goals
・Empower your life!

The Empowering Your Life® weekend is about taking back control over your life. It helps you get in touch with your hidden talents and desires, and then guides you to the solutions you need to create a bright, compelling future.

What is Empowering Your Life® and what is it based on?

Empowering Your Life® is an inspiring 3-day event where you will learn how to resolve the past, let go of your baggage, get to know what’s truly most important to you and set your goal to getting there.

How would you like to have the ability to stay calm and grounded in the face of adversity – and to do so while maintaining a high level of integrity, grace and ease?

You will learn a process for getting in touch with your emotions – positive and negative – and be taught how to manage your emotional states during life’s difficult times.

All our lives we’ve been taught to bury our discomfort. We are going to teach you how to dig it up, process it and get rid of all the junk that doesn’t serve you in moving powerfully forward.

These are important skills to develop because you are going to be unloading your baggage here - AND - knowing how to navigate your mind and emotions when life is throwing you lemons will prevent you from creating NEW baggage as you move forward.

You will gain an understanding of the process by which unresolved negative emotions become limiting beliefs, how our beliefs turn into our stories, and how our stories bind us to the past. Mental and emotional baggage prohibits us from being, doing and having the things we truly desire in life.

We will guide you through Mental and Emotional Release® (MER®) to help you let go of your baggage, and then we’ll wrap that up with teaching you an ancient forgiveness process that will help you truly forgive yourself and others.

During this powerful weekend, you will also get clear on what is truly important to you through discovering your deeper values. Your values are an internal representation of what is most important to you in an area of your life. Your values reside at the deepest level of the unconscious mind and are what determine how you spend your time.

Many people don’t ever take the time to consider what it is that they truly want or need in their lives. That can result in a lot of wasted time in toxic relationships, poor health or dead-end jobs.

In the Empowering Your Life® weekend, you will learn about what lights you up, what inspires you to be the best version of yourself, and the tools and techniques to get you there … fast!

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming Empowering Your Life® weekend soon.

Tris Thorp co-developed this newly revamped Empowering Your Life® seminar through weaving together a series of processes she learned in her decade-long mentorship and teaching with Dr. Deepak Chopra and her teachers, the late Debbie Ford and Dr. David Simon. In her tenure of study of eastern and western approaches to emotional healing, Tris has developed a unique gift for teaching people how to embrace all of themselves; from emotional discomfort to the pain and suffering we experience as a result of confusion, tragedy, trauma and loss. Her training as a Master Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Hypnosis and Mental and Emotional Release® (MER®) enables her to carry people through a process of digging up their baggage; their darkest fears, their deepest beliefs and all the reasons and excuses that keep them from fully living their life’s purpose – and then eliminating it.


Our Philosophy

Our philosophy of Empowering Your Life® is that you learn the skills so well that you don’t need to rely on a coach, a guru, or a therapist to empower you.

What if you Empower Your Life?

The real question is, "What if you don't?" Studies show that when people look back on their lives, their biggest regrets aren't what they did but what they didn't do. It comes down to the simple choice between “I wish I had” and “I’m glad I did”.

When you Empower Your Life, the only regret you will have is that you didn't do it sooner.
