  • NEW CLASS!  Healthful Ways to Integrate Self Care Back Into Our Busy Lives. Two-class series begins October 22, registration now open! In our busy lives, self-care becomes a challenge. This two-part workshop will help change that. In the first session, learn to identify which areas in your life that need attention. Learn to tune into that little voice telling you what you already know, and get some tools to make necessary changes. In the second, learn to read labels—food, body care, and household products—critically. Some products appear to be healthy, but are loaded with sugar, calories and chemicals. Many toxic chemicals added to personal care products. Learn about ingredients to avoid, and how to ignore the packaging and marketing that companies spend millions on to sway you to buy their products. For ultimate health, you must know what you are putting in and on your body. Click here to register.
