2nd Annual Retreat for the Soul
…Designing a Life You Love
Join us as we celebrate Fibromyalgia-ME/CFS Awareness by honoring our body and soul at our second annual “Retreat for the Soul.”
Our goal is that you leave this retreat inspired in body, mind and soul — with just a bit more emotional and physical energy to get through your days.
The agenda is as follows, with two short breaks at 2:00 PM and 3:00 PM. Come for all or part of the event.
1:00-1:15 PM: Introduction & Welcome
1:15-2:00 PM: Gentle Yoga & Core Strengthening, with Leslie Ellis, HeartSong Yoga & Wellness Center: All postures will be able to be done seated.
Attendees are eligible to receive a free yoga discovery session with Leslie after the event. The 30-45 minute discovery session includes: visiting the HeartSong studio, talking with Leslie about your needs in supporting your physical being, discussing how yoga might be beneficial and what the studio has to offer. Leslie ends each session with a short meditation and/or relaxation exercise.
2:15-3:00 PM: The Dream Dinners Concept, with Jim McConnell, Dream Dinners Tualatin: A brief explanation of how Dream Dinners can help you save time and energy. Jim will have Chicken Paella for us to try. A green salad and beverages will also be provided.
3:15-4:00 PM: Designing a Life You Love, with Kimberli Freilinger, Mrs. Oregon Plus America 2013: Kimberli lives with mitochondrial disease, an illness with many of the same symptoms as Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS. She will speak to us on “Designing a life you love; Inspiring people with chronic illnesses to live life to the fullest.”
Refreshments will be provided. Dress comfortably and bring anything that would make you feel more comfortable — pillow, blanket, favorite beverage. Also, if you have a yoga mat and want to bring it, that is great.
This is going to be the event of the year. Hope you can make it!
