AICI Webinar: Intuitive Image

Wednesday, November 22; Wednesday, November 29; Wednesday, December 6; Wednesday, December 13

2:00 pm EST / 7:00 pm UK

As image professionals we love to show our clients the colors and styles that flatter them the most. We provide guidelines and ‘rules’ to make the information they receive more accessible. In actual fact, many of our clients already KNOW what suits them. Unfortunately, they’ve lost confidence in following their natural, innate instinct. The ability to guide them towards clothing choices that feed their mind, their spirit AND their silhouette has disappeared.

A revolutionary concept. 4 sessions PLUS playtime assignments.

Current research likens our gut to a second brain, with a multitude of receptors that influence mood and happiness. It makes sense, therefore, to “communicate” with our gut to access our instinct when choosing what to wear. We then not only “look” good but we “feel” vibrantly happy with our choices. This webinar program is different to the norm. During our time together, you will be your own client. Each week you will have a “playtime” assignment on which you’ll report your observations via images and text on a closed Facebook page.

Facebook group included so lots of discussion and observations.

You will be encouraged to ditch unnecessary rules and structures and ‘tune in’ to connect with your inner self. You will observe, discuss, journal and meditate in order to access and enhance your own intuitive powers. There are no “rights or wrongs” on this program. Each one of you is unique, and what you discover about yourself will reflect that. Once you harness the power of “feeling”, you will be enthusiastic about using what you’ve discovered with your own clients. This pioneering program is fun, it’s revolutionary and it’s a totally liberating experience for you, and for your clients.
