 Take Your Relationship To The Next Level

Curious about how to deepen your relationship with your romantic partner? Looking to navigate the challenges that love can bring? Gain new understanding and insight into your love life during a free webinar with Susan Bennett Fisher and Martin Fisher, Co-Founders of Body of 9. The Body of 9 offers a comprehensive body-based Identification system to better understand yourself and others.  Like Myer’s Briggs, the Enneagram, or other personality identification systems, Body of 9 enables you to better understand who you are and what your strengths and skills are.  Body of 9 differs in that it is body-based – it is the shape, tone, energy of your body that tells you which of the “types” you are. 
 
February’s free webinar events will be held on February 20 and 23. To learn more and to register, click here: https://bodyof9.com/2021-webinar-series/

The next round of funding will open on February 24th, 2021 at 8am.


Please be ready to apply quickly as funding rounds filled within the first hour.
