Welcome to the January, 2021 Harmony Way Newsletter! Happy New Year and welcome to 2021!
May it be a MUCH better year than 2020! This newsletter is chock-full of wonderful opportunities and education to better your health and well-being in the next year. Whether you are new to holistic health or consider yourself an expert, there is a little something for everyone in the Harmony Way January newsletter. Also, there are new events to check out for wellness (simply scroll down for that information). In addition to the usual classes and private sessions offered, there is a low-cost virtual yoga and meditation retreat later this month that will focus on deep relaxation, restorative poses and detoxification of the body/mind, as well as a new support group for parents/guardians of sexual assault/abuse survivors starting in February, along with more events on the way. Wherever you are and whatever you do, I wish you and your loved ones a beautiful, incredibly healthy and vibrant 2021! Sending you (virtual) celebratory hugs and high fives for the new year and its limitless opportunities! ✨💖

Pre-Registration Necessary You'll also need the Zoom Cloud Meetings app to participate with video. It's free and easy to install/use.
*NEW* 💕 Virtual Monthly Support Group for
Parents/Guardians of Children/Teens Who Have Experienced Sexual Assault/Abuse: Free support group specifically tailored for the parents/guardians of those who have experienced sexual abuse or sexual assault. Your children have their own important story to tell with their own personal trauma. However, how can parents and other caretakers better understand the trauma behaviors of their loved ones in the aftermath of this experience...and how can they process their own feelings of trauma, guilt, shame, regret, grief, anger, etc. while receiving support from others in a safe space, so they know they are not alone?
We meet one Saturday morning per month for one hour on a first-name-only basis via Zoom. Donations are welcome, but entirely optional and not required. Parents/guardians from all family constellations are welcome. Advance registration is necessary. *This is NOT a substitute for therapy or other mental health treatment.* Please get in touch if you are a parent/guardian who would like to join this support group. First Meeting: Saturday, February 27th, 10:00 AM EST
