Sarah Starnes @ Shine

Shine Friends, No Acrobatic Yoga Jam tomorrow night but you can get your Sarah Starnes worth on September 19 at 7 pm when she presents her Power Animal Guided Journey workshop. In the Shamanic tradition, we all have animals protecting and empowering us and Sarah’s meditation will help you to connect to yours.
