Join Caitlin Peterson, an apprentice of the author, HeatherAsh Amara, and certified facilitator as she guides you through hands on lessons in reclaiming your full potential.

Most entrepreneurs create their own business so that they can have freedom, yet many of us end up working more hours than at our previous 9 to 5 jobs. We hustle, grind, and work late nights and on weekends.
But what if the answer isn't just working harder? What if the key to unlocking the growth potential of your business is something as simple as taking more vacation time?
Louiza believes that our well-being is crucial to our success. As business owners, we have the freedom to create balance and make own kind of schedule. This past year, Louiza took a total of 19 weeks and two days off while having her most successful year yet.

Calling all soul sisters! Several of you have expressed interest in learning how to make your own mala, so why not have a party and learn?!
The mala is a traditional garland of 108 prayer beads. Every bead represents a truth, and meditating on them with an affirmation, or mantra, is used to bring peace of mind. The mala can also be seen as a metaphor for life: a small knot between each of the beads represents a challenge between the smoother, more beautiful aspects of life.
In this fun, inspiring workshop led by Caitlin Peterson, psychotherapist and spiritual jewelry designer, participants will learn the sacred art of mala making and how mala are used in daily practice. Each participant will leave the workshop with a one-of-a-kind mala bead necklace. You will also be guided through an initiation meditation using your newly created mala. All tools and materials are included. No experience necessary; come as you are.

How to leverage that body acceptance into living the life you desire
