Winter Event - Holiday Healing: The Gift of the Present

Appreciating the holiday joy that abounds at this time of year requires that you be present and engage in the now of the moment. This is a skill that is essential in helping you effectively navigate the physical and emotional upheaval that seems to build up as the season approaches.

Join us for an informative workshop as we explore and discover the skills that will help you stay present, appreciate the power of now and make this holiday one of the best ever.
