Upcoming Events

I believe my purpose is to promote wellness in the lives of others whether it is through growing deeper in one's spirituality, determining ways of coping with life circumstances, identifying and pursuing intentions, or encouraging physical and emotional health and wellness. One of the ways I seek to do so is through projects with purpose such as the upcoming events below.
