Friday, November 7 - Sunday, November 9

My friend Karen Rigney is planning a phenominal women's retreat.  It will be held at the beautiful Lifebridge Sanctuary in  Rosendale, NY. As you will see I am a guest lecturer speaking on herbs for your immune system. Come experience the community of women who participate, connect and create positive energy for a renewing and strengthening event.

Karen and Alyson, the two hosts are giving you some information on my program below.  I hope you'll be able to join us.
