"The immune system is a complex biological system made up of an advanced network of tissues, organs and cells. This system works to provide the body with natural defenses. Different types of cells are designed to destroy invaders. Protective white blood cells, such as T cells, travel the blood stream to lymph nodes, while our thymus gland and spleen seek invaders such as bacteria, viruses, fungal infections and tumor cells." (Sr. Rita Dubrey) Come and learn a quick, easy to follow energy protocol that supports and maintains the health of our immune system. The Diamond Technique is an excellent self-care tool.

What if holding on to extra weight has NOTHING to do with food or exercise? What if living more comfortably in your body was as simple as learning new ways to "renegotiate stressful situations"? What if you were to learn simply, effective tools that address emotional eating while allowing more of the good stuff like joy and relaxation into your life? This class examines the relationship between Sympathetic Dominance and the body / mind connection. Interested in balancing and raising your vibration? Join me for a delicious perspective on food and our nervous system.
