  • You will learn about the importance of reducing inflammation so that you can enjoy the very highest quality of life. This is a “game changing” class for those in need of the “fast track” to wellness.

  • You be introduced to integrative holistic health principles that support a high quality of life. Organic and Biodynamic  teas and tisanes/ herbals will be prepared, tasted and explored.

  • Joyful and powerful holistic healing tools will be demonstrated to help you effectively shift your suffering to peace through a daily “grounding” exercise, “forgiveness” exercise, and “asking” exercise.

  • You will be inspired to broaden your awareness of naturally occurring cycles and rhythms, heighten your sense of appreciation for the world around you, be more compassionate, respect and revere all life, and marvel in its interconnectedness.

  • It is time to wake up, absolutely radiate love, and realize your full power as the magnificently created human being that you are!
