Believe, Breathe, Blossom:
A Faith-Focused New Year Workshop

We live in a stress induced world. Our bodies are meant to operate out of the parasympathetic nervous system (relaxation response), however we are often stuck in the sympathetic nervous system (stress response). During this workshop you will learn quick, go-to techniques to shift your body from the stress response to the relaxation response. We will be joined by nurse and wellness advocate, Melissa Kichler, to create a personalized oil blend to help you stress less!

Date: TBD
Time: 4-8pm

Healing Components of Nature

Mindfulness is the practice of being present in the moment, aware of what you sense and feel, without judgement. All too often in life we move through life worrying about the future or dwelling on the past and we miss the blessings and moments of JOY that are right in front of us. During this workshop we will learn about and practice the art of mindfulness while making our own candles. All supplies are included.

Time: 6:00pm

Mindful Living

Breathe. Too often, we forget that simple gift and move through life holding our breath. When we learn to control our breath, we learn to control our bodily responses. We can easily access the parasympathetic nervous system by learning different ways to breathe. During this workshop you will be invited to engage in various breathing techniques and gentle movement. Together we will create a piece of art using our gift of breath. All art supplies are included.
