Mindful Motion: Physically Connect with Spirit and Self

Here you can experience a deeper physical connection with Spirit and your Self.
9:00-9:50 AM
Jill Pagano introduces us to and works with us using the MELT Method, a self-treatment technique that helps people get out and stay out of chronic pain.

This Hands-off Bodywork® approach will increase joint mobility, improve posture and balance while enhancing your body’s ability to heal.

This workshop will encourage and empower you to conjure healing, strength, and protection for yourself and the guests you welcome around your table back at home.
1:30-2:20 PM
The Power of Thought for Healing in Hoodoo
Carolina Dean delivers the strong message that Hoodoo is not something you *do* when you need it. It is a way of life, both a philosophy and a practice. It is a way of interacting with others, living in community with the Ancestors, and moving closer to at-one-ment with God. It is something that you carry with you every moment of every day. You will walk away from this session not only knowing that you are in control of your own life but also believing that you can and will change your life for the better, now prepared to do so with the tools you receive during this workshop.
2:30-3:20 PM
What is your energy personality — Is it working for you or not?
Jill Pagano introduces us to the world of “energy personality”: what energy do you show up, react or respond to in your life situations. Once we understand our energy tendencies, we can wake up to which energy we’d consciously like to tap into, rather than the one we habitually use or overuse. Consciously accessing a variety of energy personalities allows great freedom in choosing how to respond to life and thus affects the outcome of every situation. For the workshop experience, we’ll go directly to our human source, our body, for the greatest insights of all.
3:30-4:20 PM
Let Your Hands Guide the Way: How the Body Language of the Hand Can Lead the Heart and Mind to Success
Jim Barker opens our eyes, ears, and hands to practical elements of body language from a chiromancer’s perspective. You will gain an awareness of the energy your hands carry. These new insights can help you direct your thoughts, feelings, and actions to support your will and thrive in your endeavors.
4:20-5:20 PM
Closing Ceremony: Healing Power of Gratitude
Sindy Todo & David Rojas acknowledge the ancestors, entities, and guests present throughout this life-affirming, enriching weekend for the many gifts already accepted and those yet to come. It is often said that acknowledging what we have achieved or received with gratitude opens the way to further bounty. It is with this awareness that we conclude the weekend and go forth feeling more focused, healthier, and more confident.
