The Good Space
A seminar on the space we occupy in life, and the space that lives within us. Mimi Ray, professional designer and yogi with a background in feng shui, will touch on the points that define the Good Space. That physical space we create in our homes or workplaces that nourishes and empowers the inner space within each of us that communicates and expresses.
Mimi shares how the need for creating a peaceful space that dispels mind clutter and distractions enhances our interior sense of self and empowers our inner voice, enabling us to exist without the distractions and demands of the world. The Good Space is sure to be a mindful, rewarding experience relevant to how so many of us live our lives today.

Addiction takes our Breath Away
From our early childhood through adulthood we are gifted with the life lessons that bring us into the real reason we are here and our sacred contract. If we find ourselves with an addiction of any kind we will also find fear as the motivator. Fear is what triggers the dis-ease of addiction. The results are that our healing breath is disrupted and removed from our natural state. Fear, along with resentments, and judgments take away the truth of who we really are. Addiction becomes our run away train hiding who we really are. We hide the bad as well as our good. Addiction includes all mind-altering substances that we use to hide from life. We are hiding because we incorrectly think that we have found an easier softer way. We are not willing....yet to show up to our lives and who we really are. My new book, EMOTIONAL RAGS to SPIRITUAL RICHES is a book about the gift that addiction holds. We will discuss and look at this deadly life threatening disease as our opportunity to change. In doing so, the white light of enlightenment will start working in every area of our life and the lives of those we love. Our healing breath will return. Namaste
3:00-3:45 SPEAKER- Laura TerVeen, Owner and Facilitator at Sky View Retreat Center
Horses offer a fresh and non-judgmental approach in considering how our perceptions influence us. They aid us in examining our head-heart-gut-spirit connections, belief systems, and available choices. This experiential process can result in an increased sense of well being through the understanding, relief, and peace received.

Stop Hitting the Eject Button on Life
Life can be challenging, and when times get tough, we hit the "eject button" in an effort to launch ourselves away from the pain we are feeling. We mean well, only to discover that launching ourselves away from our suffering tends to have the opposite effect-intensifying the struggle rather than remedying it. Learn how the practice of self-compassion can help you shift your mindset so that you can stay with yourself with wisdom and kindness through all of the challenges life will bring your way.
10:30-11:15 SPEAKER- Beth Townsend, founder and practitioner at Healing Traditions GR
Maya Traditional Healing and Self Care
With Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® & Spiritual Healing
Beth's presentation will discuss the importance of the 5 Systems of Flow, alignment of the organs of the abdomen, assessment of the pelvic bowl and the importance of empowering people to learn to do this work on and for themselves with their own two hands.
Attendees will explore the relationship of the digestive organs, reproductive organs for men and women, the neuroendocrine loop and the pelvic bowl with sacral alignment. Becoming aware of the plants that live beside us, we will explore how to align with them to help us continue to clear with vaginal/perineal steaming and auric cleansing.

Meet Your 'Fantastic Four'- the Survival Archetypes
When your back is against the wall, when you need a defender, a supporter or a negotiator, wouldn’t you like to know who is going to show up and what's their plan?
Join Chris and Mary for their experiential presentation as they begin the language of Archetypes by introducing you to your Fantastic Four- the Child, Prostitute, Saboteur and the Victim, known as the Survival Archetypes.
Knowing your Survival Archetypes helps you take full advantage of the energy they bring to all situations. These energies are impersonal and can reveal the journey of intention to inspiration. Intention involves the personal will. Inspiration takes you to a place of surrendering to what the Universe may be asking of you.
2:00-2:20 Group interaction and participation.
2:20- 2:30 Closing- bringing it all together, re-addressing our intentions and what we have learned.
