Webinar: Flow Through Obstacles – Managing Expectations in Unexpected Times
Apr 20 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

In a state of chaos, how can we find calm and stay connected to our directives and mission?
The mind is an incredible machine, it can build worlds from nothing, but the mind takes it’s direction from a deeper part of ourselves.
The heart actually sends more information to the mind then it receives from it. It’s the impulse from our hearts that inspires the mind to create.
This workshop will ground us in that inexhaustible source of calm, creativity and connection.
