" Nourishing Health "

W o r k s h o p   s e r i e s

Often the hardest part of making healthy changes is just getting started. Explore! Discover! Incorporate changes! Be Intently Sound! Invest in your well-being by committing to the “Nourishing Health” series of six dynamic experiential sessions. Each session is about 2 ½ hours and builds on the previous one. With a group of others, explore practical aspects of nutrition, use nutrition as a metaphor to discover how to feed the multiple dimensions of wholeness, and learn to incorporate wellness practices into everyday life.
