 177 Prospect St, Torrington, CT

$265 paid in full o r $35 paid each week

All are welcome! No experience or understanding of the chakras needed! 
Each week at Balance Within you, Melissa will help you create a relationship with each of your chakras. Over the course of these 9 weeks you will gain an understanding of  the seven major chakras, starting with the root and ending with the crown. You will learn the relationship between chakras and essential oils, crystals, affirmations, mantras and mudras as well as characteristics of a chakra that is over active and under active. In the process, you will learn how to bring your chakras back into balance. Learning about the chakras will help you gain a clearer understanding of yourself, your needs and your relationships with others. This class has been the gateway to a spiritual journey that opens the students eyes to a greater understanding of the world around them and how they fit into it. This class of 6 to 8 people is kept small for the purpose of ease of learning and expressing one self in a group of supportive people. Over the course of these 9 weeks you will gain an understanding of each chakra, but the true magic is the knowledge you will gain about yourself!  Space is limited so please call or text to let us know you are interested. A $50 deposit is required to hold your spot.
PLEASE RSVP text to 203.525.5269 saying

All ladies welcome! 
 Our mission:
To create unity and friendship.
 We aim to create a fun and inviting atmosphere for women to gather each month to feel supported and experience new opportunities.  Each month we start by opening the group with smudging and reiki. We move into time to share about what’s on our minds, followed by setting our own personal intention.  We focus on spiritual growth through discussion, meditation, creating and learning ways of staying happy, healthy and positive.
