Abby (group or private sessions available)
ENRICH YOUR LIFE AND YOUR RECOVERY WITH TOUCH
Explore touch as a mode of mediation, nourishment, body connection, emotional processing and Higher Power connections. Nourish yourself mentally, physically and emotionally and learn to receive pleasure without drinking, eating, gambling or using in other ways. Explore touch as meditation where there is no goal, outcome, right or wrong way to be or to feel. Allow and witness thoughts, emotions and sensations without judgment or trying to change them. Explore how to connect in new and different ways with your Higher Power and use the body as the portal to the divine with touch, breath and voice.

Caren J. and Judy B. (1.5 hour group sessions)
THE FOUR AGREEMENTS
The Four Agreements offers four simple “agreements” we can make with ourselves to gain relief from self-limiting beliefs. Caren and Judy have studied and applied these agreements for some time, and have found them a useful addition to their recovery. In this hour long workshop they will give a short summary of the agreements, share some quotes from the book and offer personal examples of how they have implemented them in to their own lives.

Bonjour! Would you like to learn some conversational French in a fun workshop so that you can hold your own when traveling to Quebec, France, or even Switzerland?. Or want to speak to that “certain someone” and show off some French skills? Then come join us for a fun hour of French basics!

Judy K. (1.5 hours group or private sessions available)
Are you tired of feeling weighed down and frustrated by clutter?
This workshop is for those folks who are wanting “ to release stuff they no they longer want or need in their life”. We explore the roadblocks that prevent the natural flow of decluttering. We will discuss how to get ready: spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Often this process of letting go and clearing space will benefit and enhance other areas in our life.
There will be lots of time for Q&A.
Date March 7th, 2021 @ 3:30 pm EST / 5:30 pm MST
Judy K. (1.5 hour private sessions only)
BodyTalk system is rooted in traditional ancient wisdom. Our well-being is based on healthy communication among all systems of the body. BT is a healing modality that re-establishes communication within the BodyMind. Our unconscious belief systems impact our body’s natural healing and balance. BodyTalk uses innate wisdom through muscle checking (not testing) to discover the priorities that require attention. Please go to www.bodytalksystem.com for more information.
If you have additional questions or are interested in a session I am willing to do several for this fundraiser contact email@example.com This is a one on one session so the participant will be contacted by Judy after registering to find a convenient time

It’s an east asian bodywork technique practiced by people in their homes throughout SE/NE Asia. I think a decent description might be” Gua Sha is an easy to learn and easy to use bodywork technique used to relieve muscle pain and tension and prevent or shorten the duration of the flu and the common cold. All that is needed is oil or water and a smooth edged household object such as a spaghetti jar lid or chinese soup spoon. You can perform it on others and yourself”

Jeanette (group session only)
Setting up a home recording studio; analyzing a script; breaking down an audition monologue; verb choices; dealing with nerves when speaking in public.
