PAUL Smit is an author, publisher, teacher and speaker for “One”.

He is the founder of Intention 1111, the CEO of The Hive Publications and the co-founder of One Legacy Works, their parent company.

As the creator of a unique awakening programme, Core Intention Living™, Smit provides people with new models of life based on spiritual freedom and creativity using the “law of attraction”.

In 2006 he designed a ground-breaking programme to help clients heal addictive behaviour. What began as a passion for self-healing is now engaged by over 25 million people over the internet, social media in digital and audio formats.

He has hosted many radio shows syndicated with Voice America, and offers counselling and personal guidance in several formats.

His next event will be held at Hillcrest High on 15 October, including guest speakers and entertainment. Smit will be the keynote speaker and will co-ordinate all involved with this most important life-changing event (getting over addiction).

In addition to his work Smit is also recognised for his authentic and compelling presentation, as his own life required radical transformation and redesign. His insights are backed by years of exploration and personal trial prior to engaging private clients.

It is his desire and purpose to support others in realising their gifts, core intention, awakening to universal truth, and accelerating their personal alignment and growth.

“No matter where I am speaking in the world, I find that the cause for addictions and repeated behaviours are all the same. Children mimic the repeated behaviours of others attempting to escape their emotional discords, rather than solving them. Through my workshops and speaking events I offer clarity to the world of addictions and assist in redirecting thoughts to more constructive processes rather than that of compensating with what is outside of one’s self.”

“In my work as an international author and speaker, I teach what I know and am passionate about serving my clients because I personally made the difficult journey of recovery first-hand ”. Smit said that school staff are bombarded daily with unnecessary behaviours from children who practise addictions.

These speaking events he said, not only give clarity to the children, but also offer school staff clarity in identifying problem areas and a better grasp on how to best assist those affected by addictions while maintaining the order and co-operation they require to effectively teach their students.
