Moving On

Saturday, October 31, to Sunday, November 1, 2015

A 2-day Flower Essence Workshop
by Cynthia Athina Kemp Scherer

In this workshop we will explore flower essences that help us in moving on in the active, multilayered process of developing consciousness, and to a perspective that was not previously possible. It will highlight strategies that we may have knowingly or unconsciously developed to keep ourselves from moving on in any areas of life, and understanding the inner mechanism that is required to let go.
