Southern Illinois Fire & Flow retreats will host workshops focusing on techniques to help overcome obstacles blocking our physical, emotional, and spiritual growth. Fear comes in many forms and some hinder us from becoming stronger or more knowledgeable. Example are you afraid to ask for a promotion or more pay, maybe you are ready to launch a business but can only focus on negative outcomes. In our workshops you will find powerful ways of thinking to overcome these internal fears. After leaving a retreat you will have the tools and mental positive power to overcome any obstacle in your way.
Early-Bird Tickets: $40
Event Gates Open 10 A.M. – 10 P.M.
