8AM-8:45AM Meditation Free with Julie Griffin
Come, find your center and gently reach out to the energy around you. Inhale into balance. Exhale into solidity. Meditation is an approach to training the mind, similar to the way that fitness is an approach to training the body.  Studies on the relaxation response of meditation have documented some short-term benefits:

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Improved blood circulation
  • Lower heart rate
  • Slower respiratory rate
  • Less anxiety
  • More feelings of well-being
  • Less stress
  • Deeper relaxation


Yet, the purpose of meditation is not to achieve benefits. Rather, the goal of meditation is no goal. It’s simply to be present.   We look forward to seeing you.

A workshop on how to navigate life being empathic! Top two tell tale signs you are empathic:
1. You become overwhelmed or avoid crowded shopping centers.
2. You have a difficult time watching the news or you avoid it all together.


Join Kelly Dawn Purington in an informative and interactive way to learn to observe more and absorb less.  Observe not absorb is a workshop on how to use the gift of being empathic instead of it using you.  Being Empathic can be an incredible gift if utilized properly. It can also be overwhelming and hard to deal with. Being an empath does not have to be a burden. It can be the greatest gift you have.  Understanding it and knowing how to separate what is yours from what is others is key. In this workshop we will show you proven techniques for becoming more in balance with this gift.  Empaths are often people that work in either the Medical field, Social Services or are just the friend that is always helping others.  Learn to observe what others are feeling without absorbing it and having it affect you.
