Monthly Meeting (Virtual) – Dorena Kohrs presents “The Hierarchy of Healing Your Home” @ Zoom
Oct 13 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Important things to note!

  • The Board has determined that it’s not yet safe for us to meet in person, so this will be a virtual meeting.
  • It’s the third Tuesday of the month (not the second Monday)
  • Please note the new time: 6pm – 8pm

Growing a thriving business isn’t a smooth road. Come learn how your home mirrors your life and can help you uncover what’s emotionally holding you back. And once you know what’s holding you back, how you can shift the energy of your home through a hierarchical process, so it supports your dreams, rather than sabotages them.
