The Healing Power of Color

The Healing Power of Color

Color therapy can energize us and help us regain a happier, calmer spirit. On Saturday, August 25, from 9 a.m. to 11:15 a.m., the sisters welcome the director of the Art of Healing Institute for a workshop titled “The Healing Power of Color” in St. Joseph Hall.
 
Sheri Bauer, RRMT, CAHP, BD, has 20 years of experience as an intuitive healer. At our August gathering, Sheri will describe how much of what we need to maintain a healthy body, mind, and spirit actually comes from color. Learn how colors can help restore vital organs and our nervous system, and can be used to treat ourselves and others.
 
Beat the summer doldrums by joining us for a fascinating workshop. The class fee is only $10. Reserve your place by calling Donna at 414-385-5272 or email doloughlin@sssf.org.
