(SGR) Achieve Optimal Health with the Power of Guided Imagery with Melbra Watts
May 31 @ 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm

Experiences of traumatic and stressful events, past and present, can reduce our immunity and energy to overcome disease or achieve the results we desire.  Medical studies with breast cancer patients, as well as with athletes, have proven that creating images in proactive and positive ways, as in guided imagery, can effectively reduce stress and improve health and fitness outcomes.  With guided imagery, you can take charge of your mind and body by using the power of your creative imagination to achieve better health and well-being.

Melbra Watts is an energy medicine health coach who provides training in wellness and holistic development.

(MPR) Bodyscapes Healing Art Workshop with Diane Sciarretta
Jun 2 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Must attend both workshops on June 2 and June 16 if you wish to participate in the 4th Annual Bodyscapes Fall Art show

Bodyscapes Writing Workshop:

The Bodyscapes technique uses the power of reflective writing and colorful drawing with pastels to help give voice to our inner journey living with illness.

In the writing workshop we will search for more diverse words to describe how we feel as we currently live or have lived with a serious illness.

In the drawing workshop we will discover colors that recognize — in an entirely new way — what we think illness looks like inside of our bodies.

In the end we will give these newly discovered words and colors permission to talk to each other to help shape our inner journey and experiences living with an illness.
