Manifesting Love: The Power of Self-love

February 2
3:00-5:30

As women, we are bombarded by so many negative messages from the media and sometimes, even those close to us.  After a while, we start to believe what we hear, and start to dislike ourselves.

This workshop will give us some tools to get out of the rut of self-hate, and into the groove of self-love!  We’ll talk about changing our self-talk and how to treat ourselves kinder, while  making “Love Boxes” and fill them with love notes to ourselves.

The second in our 12-part series entitled Creating From the Spirit: A monthly gathering of women , creating opportunities for self-love and wellness, a series led by Jovhanna, owner of The Spiritual Love Healer , an Linda Zukowski, owner of Metamorphic Massage for Women.
Jovhanna and Linda will provide guidance, supplies, and snacks.  The cost of the workshop is $15.00 Register in advance, as space is limited.

Potluck Book Club: You are a Badass

Tuesday, February 19
7:00-9:00 pm

Looking to make changes in your life, which include reading more? Join our book group!

Our first read will be “You are a Badass” by Jen Sincero https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15843166-you-are-a-badass
The book is about 250 pages long, and broken into 5 parts:
How You Got This Way
How To Embrace Your Inner Badass
How To Tap Into To Motherlode
How To Get Over Your B.S. Already
How To Kick Some Ass

Because there’s a lot to the content of this book, I suggest we start off discussing Parts 1 & 2, with the last 3 parts discussed in March.

For the potuck portion, since we are a wellness center, let’s try to stay away from unhealthy foods. If you are planning on attending, when you RSVP, or at some point before the event, let us know with a comment what you’ll bring so we don’t end up with 12 tubs of hummus.
