Blissful Living returns to Gauteng with Weekend Workshop 2 : 20th & 21st August 2011

Psycho-Spiritual Empowerment Specialist Ashraf Moorad returns to Gauteng
after presenting his programme in Cape Town (20 visits over the past 28 months).

For almost 2 decades Ashraf Moorad has been on a existential quest to ( firstly ) understand the Human
Experience & The Nature of Personal Reality, and ( secondly ) to apply this knowledge to support ( his own & others ) Authentic Creative Empowerment.

After much academic and esoteric study in the area of personal development, healing and transformation and practical experience as a therapist / healer, Ashraf ( based in Durban ) travelled across the major centers of South Africa
( Pietermaritzburg, Joburg, Pretoria, Mafikeng and most recently Cape Town ) working with small workshop groups, sharing that which he was discovering about “Psycho-Spiritual Self- Empowerment”.

During this time Ashraf uncovered the answers he was looking for and his quest was fulfilled, culminating in his life work “The Blissful Living Teachings” being formulated.

Ashraf continues to share his treasure box of applied spiritual gems with you in Gauteng.

In order to achieve this outcome various principles, practice and techniques are taught to attendees. The workshop lies at the "heart" of the blissful living teachings.

RECENT TESTIMONIAL - ' I am Home ' - 'Thank You Card' to Ashraf dated 31st October 2010
Dear Ashraf,
I just want to say how much I have enjoyed the two workshops with you.
I feel I have learned a tremendous amount, put so much into practice, and am thrilled at the clearing already done.
Of course, this would not have been possible without your incredible insightful B L body of knowledge, that vibrates with me so perfectly that when i am in its company - listening to cd's or in real life - I feel at last, after years of searching, "I am home".
But as important as your profound information, if not more so, is your unconditional love, care and non-judgement.
It is this that has allowed me to unconditionally trust you and to open up so completely and honestly.
What an incredible gift !
I am truly blessed to have you in my life.
Thank you so much for your amazing support.
Looking forward to the next workshop.
L.H Durban, programme participant at the end of the second workshop.
E.B.K. Capetown - My younger son said to his older brother,
" I have not met Ashraf but when i see how my father has changed, he ( Ashraf ) must be bloody good "
