June 23rd ~ Waking Up to our Colorful World: How to Use Color in the Everyday for Flow, Harmony & Replenishment
Color saved my life. Literally. While sick and undiagnosed for four years, I craved colorful food, began making really vibrant art, and traveled to vibrant holistic countries (New Zealand, Australia, India, and Bali). I was finally diagnosed by a functional MD doctor in Austin with black mold poisoning. Inspired by my life-changing personal experience with the body-mind-spirit transformative effects of color, I became a certified color practitioner where I now hold space for color therapy sessions. Color is a powerful tool to stimulate energy flow in the body-mind-spirit. Developing a relationship with color reconnects us with our inner voice. I want to teach you how to really perceive color at not only a physical level but a mental/emotional/spiritual one, as well. Color can be used to detox, nourish and rebalance our energy.

Come learn how this powerful tool for healing, growth and self-awareness can improve your life.
