Questions, Comments, or Concerns? Feel free to contact me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org What are Chakras? Simply put, chakras are different centers that run energetically parallel to your spine. In Sanskrit, the term chakra means "wheel". These energetic wheels are considered doorways of perceptions, which allow you to witness and gain more understanding around where you may experience balance / imbalance or ease / dis-ease in your life and your relationships.

4-Week Living BIG Workshop Series
Ask and you shall receive! From the feedback I received at my last Chakra Tuning Meets the Daring Way (tm) class, I am now offering a specific workshop series that focuses on Living BIG - Boundaries, Integrity, & Generosity. There was a lot of discussion during my last workshop about boundaries-- how do we know when to put them in place and HOW do we do communicate boundaries to others when we know we need to put them in place?
Based upon the research of Dr. Brené Brown, this 4-week series we will explore just that... how do we live from a place of boundaries, integrity, and generosity?
Each week will provide different practices for LIVING BIG!
As Brené writes: “Setting boundaries means getting clear on what behaviors are okay and what’s not okay. Integrity is the key to this commitment because it’s how we set those boundaries and ultimately hold ourselves and others accountable for respecting them”
When: Wednesdays, September 26, October 3, 10, 24, 2018 Time: 5:30-7pm Where: 115 NE 7th Ave, Suite 204 Cost: $100 (pay as you go options available) or $90 if you register by September 5th.
