This 3-hour session will have wellness demos (meditation, sound therapy, affirmations, etc) and a time for Q & A.

Can my children be present? We welcome nurslings and non-crawling or walking babies, we recommend that you have a caregiver nearby to care for your little one during non-feeding times. If you have children that will not distract you or the instructors then they can be quiet in the background. Our workshop is a professional setting and highly interactive and we want you to be available to participate in the hands-on activities.
