“Good magic hides the trick. Great magic reveals some sort of truth. It's a form of self-expression. I want my magic to be meaningful. I want people to find more in it than deception. People should enjoy magic, of course, but they should also feel connected to others through it. Magic should cause people to reconsider what they think they know and the way they perceive things."

Joshua Jay is a world famous performer, lecturer, author, and photographer of all things mysterious. He has performed in over fifty countries for distinguished politicians and major celebrities and appears regularly on national television such as Good Morning America, CNN, and the TODAY Show. Joshua also acts as magic consultant for Marvel Comics and HBO, using sleight of hand to promote Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire. Joshua has spoken on magic and creativity at Google headquarters, and lectured on deception at universities and museums across the country. Jay recently appeared onstage at the Rubin Museum as part of their Brainwave series, performing and speaking alongside neuroscientists on the role the brain plays in illusions.

Joshua Jay is the author of thirteen books for magicians. In 2009 he penned a best-selling magic book, 'MAGIC: The Complete Course', and had his fine-art photography exhibited in several shows (appearing recently at the Culture Museum in Linz, Austria).

"I consider Joshua an important, emerging voice in our art." David Blaine

The Desire Map Workshop with Rana Alamuddin

The Desire Map Workshop with Rana Alamuddin

Two day Workshop: Friday, March 11th, 10am -3pm AND Saturday, March 12th, 10am - 3pm
(BD80 payable in advance to Words, includes The Desire Map book, light snacks and refreshments)

Rana Alamuddin aka Raya Meddine is a Lebanese-American actress, TV host and writer who works between Hollywood, Paris and Beirut. She’s had roles in films and TV shows such as Sex and the City 2, CSI: Miami and The Young and the Restless. 

When she suddenly moved from Los Angeles to Saudi Arabia with her husband and their first baby she underwent a profound identity crisis. The Desire Map was one of the tools that saved and transformed her life and she is now a licensed facilitator. 

"When I left Hollywood 4 years ago as an actress with a career, hot legs, a suitcase filled with stylish clothes and swapped it all for a burka and breastfeeding in Saudi Arabia, I never thought that at the end of the tunnel there would be this.  

Me coming face to face with my Desire. Me coming face to face with my authentic self. 
 
The Desire Map chose me. It turned my life upside down.  It’s goal-setting and life-planning with soul. From the inside out. Holistic. Joyful. Empowered.
 
In our modern society, we have the procedures of happiness and achievement upside down. We go after the things we want to have, get, accomplish and experience outside of ourselves. And we hope and pray that we’ll be fulfilled when we get there. It’s backwards. It’s outside in. And it’s running us in circles.
 
The new goal setting is based on How You Want to Feel. So the journey itself becomes as pleasurable and fulfilling as the end result.  The Desire Map is Danielle LaPorte’s response to seeing so many people - especially women - struggle, burn out, deplete, lose themselves or simply accept to live unfulfilled as they strive for balance, joy, self-expression, sense of purpose, love or success.
 
The Desire Map is a global movement for women and men to connect with their core desired feelings and creat
e goals with soul. The Desire Map has sold over 200,000 copies and is translated into seven languages. There are over 900 Desire Map facilitators leading workshops worldwide. This will be the first Desire Map workshop in the Arab World.
 
In this Desire Map workshop, you’ll identify How You Want to Feel in the various areas of your every day life: Livelihood & Lifestyle, Relationships & Society, Body & Wellness, Essence & Spirituality, Creativity & Learning.
 
You’ll discover your Core Desired Feelings, a map to setting your major intentions with soul and creating super-efficient action lists that will take you from desire to fulfillment.  All in a safe, loving, respectful and nurturing atmosphere.
 
You know what will happen with that kind of inner clarity and outer action? You’ll feel the way you want to feel more often than not. Decisions will be easier to make. Trusting yourself will come more naturally. You’ll complain less. Be more excited about your life. Live a life fueled by your deepest desires and in turn unlock your gifts to the world. You desire? I thought so. Meet me there. I look forward to having
you."

The Art of Radical Forgiveness - A Workshop with Cyntha Gonzales
Feb

7:00 PM19:00

The Art of Radical Forgiveness - A Workshop with Cyntha Gonzales

Traditional forgiveness offers compassion when we have been harmed and takes responsibility and apologizes when we have harmed. In radical forgiveness, we go beyond blame and take courageous responsibility for what is unhealed in ourselves to attract any offender – personally, socially or politically. We move from understandable victimization to revolutionary gratitude for the soul growth that any harm and betrayal have catapulted us into.

We are able to eventually say, "It couldn't have been any other way." This can be a tall order. Committed attention and surrendering to the rich journey that radical forgiveness is, make it possible. 

In this 2-hour talk and workshop, Cyntha will take participants through the rich journey that radical forgiveness is. She will includes exercises from:

  • Ho’oponopono
  • Buddhist Forgiveness Meditation
  • A Course in Miracles
  • The Karpman Victim Triangle
  • Colin Tipping’s Radical Forgiveness

Cost: BD20 (payable in advance to Words)

To sign up, email info@wordsbookstorecafe.com with your name and mobile number. 

Cyntha Gonzalez has practiced as a couples therapist for the last 30 years, a ripe ground for the necessity of radical forgiveness. She also is a bodywork healer, art therapist, Sacred Intimacy workshop leader and certified Holotropic Breathwork facilitator, having practiced internationally over 30 years. She leads workshops, training courses and writes blogs, articles, and now her first book on the power of radical forgiveness in her own successful divorce process. She has been based in Dubai for the last 17 years and has regularly taught in Bahrain. For her blogs on sacred intimacy, podcasts and more, go to: www.cynthagonzalez.com
