Joyce Leonard, Reiki Master, and Marianne Benforado, L.Ac. are offering a restorative program designed to create ease and spaciousness in body, mind and spirit. πŸŒŸπŸ’• πŸ’« Doesn't that sound wonderful? It is!! We've done this program several times now and everyone (including Joyce and me) walks away feeling more grounded and more relaxed. Please come! You are welcome to come solo or bring a friend. These healing circles have a warm community feeling to them.

he intention is to create a safe and healing environment where everyone can experience deep calmness and renewal. Aaaaahhhhhh....the bliss of of slowing down. With the support of the circle we drop into a natural flow and can connect with ourselves again. Here are the details:
