What exactly is the "Employee Awareness Association"?

This group has apparently been invited to speak at our office for a free "lunch and learn" seminar. On the surface it looks all legit and something our company's HR department set up to promote health and whatnot. But my spidey-sense is tingling the more I look at the flyers and try to find out stuff on the web. Best I can tell now is that this is some kind of fluffy good-health seminar backed by a heavier sales pitch at the backend. Any thoughts? What I've found is below the fold...

So the flyers and a simple Google search show that The Employee Awareness Association
is behind this seminar. The owner of the domain is Wendy Gail Rose, and that seems to mesh since the "positive thoughts!" stuff on her page matches the tagline on the website. I can't find out much more about Wendy Gail Rose except she's in LA and I'm out here in the midwest, and she's probably not flying out to my little office to do a 60-minute health talk.
Digging a little farther shows that the EAA / Wendy is looking for people to set up talks and marking it as a "work from home sales job"
. (This listing is from Michigan, I am not in this area FYI). More spidey sense.
Has anyone else out there encountered this group? I'm guess it's not a Scientology-class organization but they're obviously selling something
, and with a possibly light Christian angle. I have no qualms about these people being invited into the office and obviously I'm not going, but if they're up to something more scammy I'd like to be able to inform my coworkers and maybe even my HR folk. Any ideas?
