We are delighted to partner with Johnson County Community College (www.jccc.edu) in bringing this celebratory event to everyone in the metro area.
We would love to bring yourself, family, and friends and enjoy an afternoon of good food, festive atmosphere, performances by local professional dancers and musicians, inspiring talks on unifying mental and physical well-being for all ages, calming breathwork, and meditation with soothing music.
