10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
LOVING OURSELVES FULLY (Mair Alight) (Workshop Space Greenwood No Seattle)

A sacred play time, with joy, laughter and companions where we will practice saying “yes” to “no”. NO to believing we are not enough, or too much. YES to self-gratitudes, self-appreciation and self-celebration. Yes to enjoying sacred play, laughter, and welcoming ease. Mair has enjoyed immensely creating a space for deeply listening to each other and bringing our shared sense of fun and play and laughter to our time together, while honoring our self-care. There will be exercises to enhance our sense of connection and ease, self-love…. and for us each to experience being “the boss of me”. Inner children welcome! We’ll have drawing/coloring materials available for those who choose to use them, as well as time to share what you create if you want.(optional) About Mair: Safety, belonging and inclusion are as important to me as enjoying life, laughing and playing. Here’s a link to my bio: http://www.mairalight.com/bio If you would like to "meet" Molly, my Dear Inner Child; to see her drawings and messages go to: www.MollyandMair.wordpress.com
