Harmony Way Virtual (Drug-Free) Core Shamanic Gathering
1:00-3:00 PM EST
(Free Event on Zoom, Advance Registration Necessary)
Do you crave heart-centered connection with others in a safe, peace-filled environment? Are you an introvert who is shy, but who also loves to have deep conversations? Have you participated in other shamanic events or trainings at Harmony Way or elsewhere? Are you curious about core shamanic healing or what it involves? If so, this is the event for you!
Even if you have no previous experience in shamanic work, you are welcome here.
There will be a talking/sharing circle filled with compassion and love, followed by a shamanic journey. (For those who do not know how to journey, this time can alternately be used for other types of meditation or prayer, so no worries!) This is a 100% experiential group event, NOT an educational class.
If you are interested, please contact us with a note that contains your name and email to be added to the list. Space is limited.

This Month's Exercise Demos:
30 Minute HIIT Cardio Workout With Warm Up
Bruno Mars Walking Workout -- 1,000 Steps in 8 Minutes
(From: Get Fit With Rick)
Here are two great options to get moving in a way that feels best for your personal needs. There is a 30 minute HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workout and an additional walking workout that takes only eight minutes. If you are a beginner or only have a few minutes, the walking workout is a terrific choice. For those with more fitness experience, the HIIT workout may bring the challenge you need. Both are terrific options for exercise!
Always check in with your medical health provider for advice before starting a new workout program, being mindful of any existing conditions or injuries that you have, bringing these up with a medical professional prior to trying any workout.
