More about the Season of Wellness:
The season of wellness is a time of celebrating wellness for all of the citizens of our region with  an emphasis on alternative and holistic modalities through special events including workshops, socials, networking events, festivals and an awards event.  The Season of Wellness Events will bring alternative health practitioners and  people seeking wellness together.  The health of any community is directly proportional to the health of each individual citizen.  If we make finding healthcare practitioners more accessible, then we provide an avenue to improving the health of our friends, family, and community.

The Season of Wellness seeks to create an environment supporting wellness and sustainability, also working in conjunction with trainers, farmers, and environmentalists as well as artisans, musicians, authors and business professionals who can inspire the populace to connect to one another in a spirit of cooperation. "As a organization that brings communities together, we are delighted to present the Season of Wellness ," says longtime Chiropractor and HNA supporter, Bonnie May, "We look forward to doing all that we can to bring health in all of its forms to our region."   The Season of Wellness Launch will also give attendees the chance to find out about the other season of wellness events including the Champions of Wellness event in early 2017.

The Holistic Networkers Association will be on hand to answer questions about:

·  What the HNA is doing in the community.

·  Support local Farmers/Artisans/Crafters

·  Our commitment to use organic and/or natural products (rather than man-made) products

· How we express our belief in the “balance” between the natural and scientific world

· How we support sustainability and do what’s in Earth’s best interest (recycle, reuse, walk/bike/carpool when possible)

·  How you can volunteer your talents to those in need.

July HNA Lunch

Join the HNA and guest speaker,  Barbara Kajan Scott for an enlightening presentation about the Power of Focus. The lunch will be the Edelweiss Restaurant located at 34 E. Ramona Ave. and start at 11:30am. There is not set fee for the lunch - order off menu. Barabara will walk us through a focusing process that will assist you in practicing your thoughts into a better feeling place and therefore improve your point of attraction.  It will help you to align with what’s important for you and move you into a state of “allowing” your personal alignment with whatever it is you are wanting to create.

The Power of Focus is based on Based on the Art of Allowing your Personal Alignment & Fulfillment through the Power of Your Thoughts and the Science of Deliberate Creation.

Your Focus determines what you feel and it also determines the direction of your Life… you literally move towards “what you focus on” and inevitably WHAT you focus on, you tend to achieve!
Your attention to it draws it to you! Remember, YOU get to choose what is “true” for you.  There are many things that are true that you DO desire and there are many things that are true that you DO NOT desire.  The encouragement here, is to give your attention to the things that you DO desire and then make those wonderful things
the TRUTH of your Life experience.

About our speaker: Barbara is a New Thought Coach, Conscious Living Mentor, Spiritual Coach, owner of the Reiki Center for Natural Healing, and affiliate member of the Emerson New Thought Center’s “church without walls” program.  She guides clients to heal and enrich their Bodies and Lives, recognizing that each is a creator and marvel of creation, here to live a life of passionate fulfillment. She shines a spotlight on the powerful Energy of Mindful Focus, how to achieve effective emotional confidence through your personal inborn Guidance System, promoting physical Life empowerment and genuine spiritual awareness.
