    SAVE YOUR SOUL, MEND YOUR RELATIONSHIPS: UNDERSTANDING THE PEOPLE WHO MATTER IN TIMES OF CONFLICT
    Phyllis Braxton approaches potentially triggering topics with a sense of humor and deep reverence for human complexity. Our recent past and present world events have taught us that conflict will find its way to everyone’s doorstep. Your readiness to effectively and empathetically reconcile discord demands confidence and competence in the personal and professional realms, especially with the people you love and care about. Whether your conflict is recent or historical, personal or professional, the time is always right to prioritize your mental wellness over the stress conflict brings. In this embodied educational experience, Phyllis uses her trauma-informed lens to help you understand how our interpretation of conflict can exacerbate an already challenging situation. Learn how culture influences your preferred communication style and how to manage interpersonal differences more effectively. By understanding these concepts, you will see a pathway to mending relationships where conflict has created a divide.

     

    TURN ON YOUR LIGHT: MOVE THROUGH CHANGE AND LOSS TO LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE NOW!
    In this session, Phyllis shares how she has learned to practice radical self-acceptance from her 50 trial-and-triumph-filled years of life. Her most vulnerable losses have led to these critical factors that she attributes to saving her family, career, sanity, and spirit. Rebounding from her lowest points ultimately taught her to live a full life, moment by moment, and accept more quickly that losses are our divine life lessons. This session will inspire you to think deeply about your losses and lessons. Leave with a roadmap to activate the light inside of you.

    I GOT YOU: THE POWER OF VULNERABILITY & CONNECTION
    Join us for an inspirational conversation with Jen Pastiloff, yoga instructor and bestselling author of On Being Human. Jen shares her journey from waitressing and feeling hopeless to hosting international yoga retreats and healing her own heart by caring for others. She has learned to fiercely listen despite being nearly deaf, body shame, and rebuild a family after the debilitating loss of her father. Her transformative story of a life filled and fueled by passion will inspire anyone who has struggled to find their way in the world. Stick around for a meet & greet with Jen and get your copy of On Being Human signed by the author.

     

    ROCKSTAR YOGA
    A yoga-ish experience with bestselling author Jen Pastiloff where you’ll laugh, sing, sweat, and feel free. Root yourself in yoga poses and rock out to your favorite tunes as Jen stretches your sense of fun, flexibility, and flair. All levels. Expect to be delighted.
