Meditation, Education and Relaxation
with Nancy Denman
Certified Eden Energy Medicine Practitioner
Friday, December 7, 2018, 5:45 - 6:45pm
Teachers Eileen Paris and Barbara P. Ward.
By donation, $5.
A perfect antidote to the stress of the times.
Good health is dependent on the free flow of
energy throughout your body.
Life today with all its abundant stressors creates energy blocks
which impede this flow. According to Chinese medicine,
these blocks provide the foundation for disease.
In this one hour workshop, certified energy medicine practitioner,
Nancy Denman, will lead participants through a series
of simple techniques which will help boost the
system and reduce stress.
A brief overview
of energy medicine will be presented and
material will be provided for home practice.
Registration would be appreciated, and may be done by leaving your
name and phone number at 508.746.4446 or 508.431.8330.
The workshop is by $5 donation, but an item for the
food pantry would be welcome.

pain management facilities.
Thank you for sharing it with me."
