Connect with Your Community

As part of our continuing focus to connect and empower those in the Lyme Disease community, we will be hosting a monthly Empowerment Circle that takes place via Zoom. Unlike traditional webinars, this is an interactive support group. This monthly event begins with a guided meditation, led by meditation teacher Mark Guay, which you can practice anytime using the audio track below. After the meditation, you’ll meet in small groups to discuss the month’s focus questions. Our hope is that you come away feeling supported, heard and inspired on your healing journey.

We believe the more informed, connected, and inspired we are, the better we feel, and the stronger our families, schools, businesses, and communities become.

To RSVP, sign up here. Space is limited.

WHEN: Every third Tuesday of the month.

6 pm–7:30 pm PST

WHERE: A private link to a Zoom room will be sent to your email address so you can sign in.
