CANDID CONVERSATIONS | The Art of Respecting One’s Physical Vessel
THIS Thursday, April 18th | 6:30pm to 8:30pm | NYIT, NYC
The purpose of this month’s Candid Conversation is to have a discussion about the importance of honoring and respecting one’s physical vessel. Our body’s are the very thing that support us with creating and manifesting ideas; with being able to walk into a board room, class or other and assert our opinion; with clearly articulating what we want and what we don’t want. Our body’s WORK for us and we don’t always honor what it has done for us. We don’t always sit to acknowledge our feet for allowing us to walk away; we don’t always feed it with the healthiest foods or the healthiest conversations or people. We don’t always honor our physical vessel. Well it’s time to get a reality check and see how we are and how we aren’t honoring our vessels and why it is so important.
Two amazing women will be leading the candid conversation – Pearl Batista and Dr. Melba Taylor!
