The Gathering

Since 2002, the Gathering has provided women an opportunity to meet old and new friends and attend workshops on health information and resources they need to be healthy.  The event is designed to engage and energize attendees, to teach new information applied in real life, help with goal setting, and create support networks.  Participants learn to become better advocates for their health and that of their families in a way which allows them to create balance, wholeness and wellness in body, mind, and spirit.

Please join us at the 13th Annual Gathering Event!
