Open The Door To Spiritual Wholeness
**Please note all times are listed in EST**
To achieve a lasting comfort with self and grace requires taking action. The first three steps are being honest, open minded, and willing. In doing so we discover the wisdom that embraces us as we embrace it, finding ourselves so much closer to a new, deeper sense of self and purpose, engaging more fully in life.Using a variety of ways to engage with each spiritual principle, we will meditate, improvise, use visual, sound, and written prompts to define our journey.
