Empowerment for Girls!

Mind Jar

Don't forget to sign up for Empowerment for Girls!, happening on Saturday, June 17 from 11:00-12:30 p.m.

Join us for a girl's empowerment workshop! As always, Gina Slager creates a fun and welcoming environment for young teen girls as they learn self-nurturing and self-empowerment practices! During this workshop, girls will be creating a "mind jar", to help them learn to allow their mind to settle, and learn how to respond to situations mindfully and skillfully.

Complete challenges to earn prizes and be entered into the Grand Prize Drawing for a chance to win an iPad Mini. All who finish are also invited to the Teen & YA Party in August!
