Jackson Retreat

Thank you to Stacey Tompkins for bringing us together for our second Healers’ Retreat in Jackson this weekend from Jan 18 -21st.

Each participant offers a special healing modality.

Brigitte will focus on holistic self-defense which is so much more than only defending against physical attacks. In Jackson, we’ll explore integrated self-defense of our mental, emotional, and spiritual selves.

We’ll also practice physical self-defense with our natural weapons.

See you in Jackson, friends!
