I started the blog in the hopes of forming a group in the Austin area that can can meet once a month and share their insights into staying healthy. The idea is to meet once a month at different locations and each member takes a turn as a guest speaker sharing how they stay healthy or if they have a business/technique that can help us stay healthy. We have several members that are massage therapists, nutritionists, and healers of varying degrees. If you want to join just to learn that is fine as well. The more the merrier. I am hoping to have a mix of people who want to teach as well as learn. Even if you do not have a healing business, please feel free to share. I think this could turn in to a nice round table of healthy sharing for physical as well as mental health. Sort of our own TED talks on a smaller scale. Please send this blog to anyone you think would be interested.
Feel free to add any of your insights to the blog. I need to figure out how to add a calendar so we can show the schedule of events. Any experts in blogging please feel to send me helpful hints!
This is open to pet healers /trainers as well!!! Dog training and Dog healing is just as important. Our pets often mirror our own issues so pulling them into this healing circle is critical!
