Looking for Glimmers: A Springtime Retreat Day

with Julia Dawson

May 11 @ 11:00 am - 3:30 pm

Price: $75.00

Description: This wellness workshop will consist of a day at LAC to learn about tools for our own personal needs and goals and learn about glimmers. Glimmers are moments of joy that can bring us peace. We will learn about the foundations of wellbeing and healthy living, enjoy the natural environment of LAC and its gallery – then dive into a collage to develop our own gentle goals and finding “glimmers “ in our day and our life and in our futures…. No artistic experience is necessary – just a desire to maximize joy!
