Upcoming Classes
.

August 31st: Fire- Generating Warmth and Abundance
.
Through this theme we will explore movement that opens our hearts, balances our bodies, quiets the mind, and invites abundant blessings into our lives. We will explore the question, “How can a grateful and open heart help us in bringing healing or support to others, and become a magnet for miracles?”
.
.
.
.
 .
September 7th: Embracing What Is
.
Through this theme we will explore the power of connection which stems from acknowledging life as is, and the world as it is. Within this theme we explore, “When I accept the world as it is, and meet life as my highest and truest self, how might my world change?”
.
.
.
September 28th:  “Nurturing Our Necessities”
.
What are our necessities? What does the world seem to require of us in partnerships, work, family, and community? Through this theme we will reflect on the necessities we uphold through our daily grind, and redirect this energy into healing and connecting with the needs of our deeper and innermost selves.
.
Here we will explore the questions:
–“What are my inner necessities, what are my soul and heart asking for?”
–“How can I achieve balance in nurturing these requests, while upholding my responsibilities as a man?”
–“How, through this deep nurturing, can I be of better service to both myself and others?”

Please join us as we discuss the LOVE, the power, and the benefits of Zilis’s UltraCell technology, why 100% Full Spectrum Organic Industrial Hemp matters, why water soluble matters, why it has a 94% absorption rate in the body that remains for 12 solid hours when tested, and so much more.

Our bodies have been deprived of this core nutrition for over 100+ years, and this specific blend meets our body’s most basic nutritional needs while satisfying our entire Endocannabinoid System. As it turns out, our Endocannabinoid System is bringing all other systems into harmony.

There are many CBD Oils to choose from, especially at this time, which is why it is so important to know which one is the best, safest, and most effective to consume for yourself, your children, and your pets.
