Followed by a presentation on

Consciousness and Self-Care

with Francoise Ducroz

Know (how to care for) Thyself

In our fast moving, quickly changing world, Self-Care is an essential skill.

A vibrant and benevolent energetic vibration is the most precious gift you can give to yourself and the world around you.

Francoise invites you to explore the ways you already take care of yourself. Do you hike? Do you garden? Do you play/listen to music? Most of us are fortunate enough to have found the activities that suit our moods and help us feel better.

And what else is there? What mindfulness tools could you add to your life traveler kit to help you step into the next level of vibration and consciousness for a fuller, freer and richer life.

We will touch upon the richness of modern and traditional contemplative practices and who knows? You might discover what you've been looking for.

Francoise will also be leading a summer retreat in Maine on Yoga and Self-Care. For more information please go to:
