Tristan Klesick – Lifestyle Changes and the Will Power Gap
How many times have you started to make changes to only have them sabotaged a few minutes, days or weeks later? Part of the solution to making successful changes is information and the other is understanding Will Power or the lack thereof. In this class, we will unpack successful strategies to win with food and life.

Lauren Dillon-Merrill – Being Human: Embracing our Humanity from a Spiritual Perspective
The French idealist philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardiin once said, “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” On my personal journey of being a spiritually evolving energetic practitioner and human being, I’ve seen some reoccurring themes among my clients. They struggle with shame, doubt, fear, and compromise, and seem to want to hold these emotions at bay, often labeling them negative or destructive to their overall well-being. What would happen if we viewed these emotions from a soul-based perspective and embraced them as friendly reminders of our ephemeral human experience? Would we show ourselves a bit more forgiveness, a little more understanding? In my discussion, we will explore the many ways to connect and embrace our humanity by using the many tools available in our spiritual tool kits, such as daily grounding, ritual, and positive intention setting.
Lauren Dillon-Merrill, the creator and owner of 3 Petals Healing, is a native Floridian that spent the summers of her youth running barefoot through the mountains of western North Carolina.

Barbara Barnes – Coming Home to Yourself: Hearing your True Voice and Letting it Guide You
Every day, we are exposed to a multitude of ‘voices’. They surround us. They engulf us. They invite us, encourage us, seduce us, sell to us, mislead us, and distract us. They want us to pay attention and sometimes, they want us to revel in the abandonment of our identities. We all know the voices of media, advertisements, politics, and sales. We are familiar with the voices of caring friends, family and professionals. Yet, despite these voices’ intent to help and support, they can sometimes confuse and take us further away from ourselves.
What if, when we need help and support, we could tune in to our greatest gift? That connection with the voice of our divine self, our higher self, our wise self, our Guide? In my discussion, we’ll explore a few ways to turn towards our True Voice and hear it’s divine and wise guidance. Yes, turning towards the truth and away from the noise can be challenging, and frightening at times. Yet, it can also be transformational and lead us back home. I invite you to this experience.
Barbara describes her healing work as holistic, recognizing the interconnectedness between mind, body, emotions and spirit as well as the firm belief that each of us is truly our own best healer. With a background in anthropology, nursing and psychiatry, for many years, Barbara worked in a variety of modern health care settings. She began to notice energetic and body-mind influences and relationships that often brought more clarity and understanding to the concerns of the person seeking healing. In her desire to understand more fully how these approaches to health intersect, she has studied Subtle Energy techniques, is a Reiki Master, is certified in Hypnotherapy and Therapeutic Breathwork and offers Esoteric Healing and Spiritual Counseling.
