Blues to Bliss Drop-in Groups

This workshop is designed to guide you toward finding and sustaining your core of happiness. You will learn to shift your blues – whether it is grief, sadness or loneliness – to a better feeling place. Conducted in a group setting, safety and trust will allow us to go deeper into feeling and expressing love, gratitude, peace and joy. While there is a flexible format, each class is also spirit-led and tailored to the individuals present.

Our groups are limited to 10 people, so register early. Suggested donation is $10.

To register contact Barb 541-345-5058 or barb@spiralingtowardjoy.org.
