Workshop: "Breath of Love"
with Jenna Hedstrom
The Breath of Love will take you through a deep inner journey to liberate yourself from the blocks of anxiety, worry, and self-doubt. People's lives often change right then and there. Chronic pain goes away, deep forgiveness takes place, great clarity of purpose arises, deep inner peace comes along. It's truly an extraordinary experience.

A Breath of Love session is deeply nourishing and is similar to yoga Nidra. The focus is on the breath, with the addition of heart-opening music and energy work, creating truly profound results all while resting.

Join Jenna for this unparalleled opportunity to receive a life-changing emotional and physical healing.
