Our intentions are pure...
Just Breathe is a retreat for your soul.
An invitation to pause on purpose and practice gratitude... the gift that keeps on giving.
Join Simply Grace Founders Diahana Barnes and Nancy Feth for a meditation on culitvating gratitude.
What's going right in your life today? Sometimes it is easy to forget to notice the blessings all around us. Science is showing the many pyschological, physical and social benefits of mindfully and intentionally practicing gratitude.Today we will step into an experience of gratitude, with the intention to cultivate gratitude on an ongoing basis. Gratitude allows us to expand beyond the hassles of life to experience the blessings. It magnifies the goodness of experience and allows us to become more resilient. It turns what we have into enough, stengthening social ties and self worth.
This is a gentle reminder to slow down and pause...be still for a moment. Connect to your spirit for guidance, light and love. Through a sacred space of divine interruptions we nurture our soul, clear our mind, and nourish our body... honoring our self-care needs and renewing our spirit. This show features a beautiful centering experience offered to gently create awareness and connection to the abundant grace present in our lives. In this beautiful space of stillness and guided meditation, we honor ouselves and the movement of grace.

Dorit Sasson, creator of Giving Voice to Your Story, interviews LeeAndra Chergey, author of Make a Wish for Me: A Family's Recovery from Autism.
When LeeAndra Chergey is told that her son, Ryan, is no longer considered “normal,” she and her family are forced into a new way of handling the outside world. Together, Chergey’s family and a team of carefully chosen therapists put in years of hard work, and eventually teach Ryan to speak and express emotions. Through it all, Chergey follows her heart—and in the process, she learns that being “normal” is not nearly as important as providing your child with a life full of joy, love, and acceptance.Tender and candid, Make A Wish For Me is a story of accepting and tackling a disability stigmatized and misunderstood by society.
