All are encouraged to choose their own level of participation. Some extra sound implements will be available for use as well.

The Elements and You!
This class will discuss the four elements, fire, water, earth, and air, within each individual.

We'll also discuss the cycles the elements go through during a person's life. Please bring your astrological chart or at least know your birth day, time, and location. This class is family friendly, and kids are encouraged to come so they can learn early to find balance within themselves!
