I, have been a foster parent for the last 3 years and I am passionate about the struggles of these children, foster parents and birth parents. If there is one sentence to sum up my experience it would be: "No one could have prepared me for everything I have felt and experienced during my time as a foster a parent." You truly do not know what anyone else is going through. All parents and all kids deserve a chance.
So I'd like you to help me support those who need it through this workout! All proceeds will go to Together We Rise!

"Sparking Our Creativity & Making Art": Verapose Yoga & Meditation House.

  community member   < less

Join us for an inspiring evening designed to free our creativity, spark spontaneity through positive self-expression as we participate in art, movement, and mindfulness.
This event is designed to spark our innate creative abilities, develop our sense of expression, and put us in tune with our intuition.
We'll begin by reconnecting to our roots, building community, and getting grounded. As we move into guided meditation designed to help clear the mind, we begin to open to the flow of creative energy. Then we'll enjoy some free movement with music to build creativity energy. As we relax into our own being, open ourselves to possibility, clear our minds and get grounded in inspiration, we build creative energy.
We'll explore Mandala painting and nature with watercolor washes to experience the meditative qualities of making art.
Facilitator, Victoria Schon
