Locally, distance, virtually, in-person... you'll get emails, journaling prompts, a closed community, video support and weekly optional check-ins. Holistic Registered Dietician works with us to help create a plan of action for this whole-person cleanse!

Manifest Your Heart's Desire

Saturday, February 3, 2018, noon - 2pm

What are you intending to attract in your life? Love? Health? Prosperity? What are you actively doing every day to create your own reality? Our bodies are actually living and breathing electromagnetic fields with our hearts sending out the strongest electromagnetic waves; able to be scientifically measured several feet from the physical body. As layers of our learned-selves get removed, we are able to tune in to different types of energies around us. The subtler, vibrating energies that others don’t notice.

In this two-hour workshop, visiting guest teacher David Henault will take us through yoga & meditation practices that will help us shed the vibrations that block us from manifesting our heart’s desire. Read what David wrote in the Yogi Times about the Law of Attraction, which offers hints about the work you’ll do in this class.

Cost is $30 for Breathe Members / $35 for non-Members. Use your Winter Workshops Price Bundle to pay for this workshop.

Learn more about David Henault in his Yogi Times bio. Reserve your spot HERE.
