How to do what you say you're going to do!

Nicole Giotopoulos, an Ontological Life and Relationship Coach of Live Intentionally Coaching, is partnering with Say Booking and Primary to bring you a Workshop titled, How to do what you say you're going to do!

In this Workshop we will look at what has you not taking action on the things you say you will. Are you blaming others and/or your circumstances, like time or money? Or are you procrastinating and empowering your limiting beliefs? Whatever the cause, there are tangible steps to take to get out of your own way and be in integrity with what you say. Please join me for this hour to take back your power and create the life you want!

Meditation & Tacos
Mar

7:00 PM19:00

Meditation & Tacos

The story goes that one day when she was feeling quite sad, a girl named Kristina decided she ought to meditate in the park. Afterward, she felt hungry, and so she ate tacos. At some point on this fated afternoon, she noticed her sadness had dissipated entirely. Upon experiencing the transformative powers of meditation followed by eating tacos, she decided she had to share this experience with the world. And so, the gathering known as Meditation & Tacos was born. It may not be enlightenment, but it's definitely not suffering, either.

Meditation makes people happier, tacos make people happier. When combined, bliss ensues. 

Join Primary ambassador Kristina Headrick for the next Meditation & Tacos on March 21st at 7 PM! First, Kristina will guide a 25-minute meditation to leave you feeling centered. Then, you'll mindfully munch on tacos and mingle with other heavily-meditated New Yorkers.

Prepare to leave with your mind right, your belly full, and perhaps even with new friends :) This is an excellent event for intimidated first-time meditators and seasoned sitters alike. Bring a friend! 

Primary members may use the code "loveprimary" for a $10 discount!

Shamanic Sound Healing and Meditation
Mar

2:00 PM14:00

Shamanic Sound Healing and Meditation

Join ONEIntegration and shift your body and mind down into deep meditative relaxation led by Luz Flaneuse, sound healing practitioner.

Tuning forks, harmonicas, bells, singing bowls, gongs, chimes, medicine drums, rattles, mantras and sacred chants create a rich tapestry of ceremonial sounds, in combination with guided meditation, breathwork and group chanting, in which participants can attain a greater sense of self awareness, healing and inner peace.

Researchers have found that sound waves can reduce blood pressure as well as enhance sleep and memory. Binaural tones played simultaneously that are close in pitch but not identical can be found in a sound bath session. Studies show these sounds can reduce anxiety and enhance mood states.

Luz will lead a guided meditation and breathwork followed by the sound journey. Blindfolds will be provided for those who wish to go deeper into the experience.

ABOUT LUZ FLANEUSE

With over 20 years of experience as a sound healer, Luz draws inspiration from Brazilian, African, Indian, and indigenous music and folklore. A registered kundalini yoga teacher (RYT-200), Luz has studied Kundalini’s tradition of the naad, or sound current, and its applications in healing and meditation. She is a singer of Umbandapontos, the sacred songs used in the Afro-indigenous spiritist tradition of Brazil, singing those songs in sacred Umbanda ceremonies to move and transform energy. Luz has extensively studied traditional drumming and singing from India, Ghana and Brazil in addition to providing sound healing in a variety of contexts including retreats, meditation centers, schools, addiction treatmentfacilities, and hospice care.

Workshop: The Ins and Outs of Preferred Stock by Dzuba Law

  • Primary FiDi 8th Floor FERN Conference Room (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Workshop/ Seminar: The Ins and Outs of Preferred Stock

***NOTE: RSVP is required due to limited seating.

This workshop focuses on startup finance. The primary focus of this presentation will be on the preferred stock financing round with investors, though a big picture overview of the entire startup finance process will be also be provided.

Attendees will gain exposure to the main preferred stock purchase agreement, as well as the corrollary documents, such as the investor rights agreement, the amended charter, and more. Although usually a complex topic, Dzuba Law intends to present the information in a way that is easily understood This is an invaluable seminar to attend, on a topic that most lawyers shy away from, because the complexities are usually too great. The floor will be open to any questions related to startup finance following the presentation.

Generally, a startup will first raise money from friends and family via convertible notes, but then the next round after that is usually via preferred stock. Thus, for all founders open to taking in money from outside investors, it is invaluable to gain exposure, now, to what the preferred stock financing round looks like, so they can better understand how convertible notes fits into the big picture, and know the options for negotiation at each stage.

Book a free 30 minute in person consultation on January 16th & 17th here!
