Finding Your Inner Peace Sanctuary: Transform your world, from the inside out.

A peaceful, healthy world begins with each one of us finding our own inner peace sanctuary.  This free weekly workshop is here to help you do just that. Please join us as we explore the meaning of peace and how to experience it practically, on a day to day basis, in our lives.
