Pleasure as a pathway to feminine radiance
with Nadia Setzer

Where does pleasure rank on your to-do list? Are you really good at taking care of everyone else, but tend to put your own desires and needs last? Do you often feel exhausted, turned-off, and depleted at the end of the day? If so, then I hope you’ll join me for this mini-workshop on the importance of pleasure in a woman’s life!

Together, we will: Discover why pleasure is such an essential ingredient to a woman’s radiance and magnetism. Begin to honor and prioritize your relationship to your own pleasure. Come up with specific ways (individualized to you!) to bring pleasure into your daily life. When a woman is turned on to her pleasure, she glows. She becomes magnetic. She radiates joy, love, and confidence. A woman like that can change the world. I want us all to become that woman. Please bring a pen and your favorite journal!

Nadia Setzer is passionate about reconnecting women to their pleasure, body wisdom, and sensuality as pathways to their feminine radiance. She believes that every woman deserves to live a life bursting with pleasure, joy, and abundance. Through specific practices and daily rituals, she helps women reignite their inner-strength, spiciness, and feminine wisdom so that they can live a more nourishing and turned-on life.

Forgiveness in the New Year
Maryann Patalano

Happy New Year – Everyday! The arrival of the New Year often brings with it a sense of excitement and the promise of unlimited possibilities. However, the idea of a “New Year” is a human construct, as we are in fact, existing in an eternal now. There is no such a new year with respect to Spirit. Nonetheless, since the world’s collective consciousness becomes tuned into and receptive to the idea of renewal during this time, it offers a great opportunity to seize the moment and discuss the miraculous power of radical forgiveness as a means to renew our minds and therefore our lives. Join Maryann Patalano as she discusses the challenges and profound benefits of forgiveness as a spiritual practice throughout the year.

MARYANN PATALANO is a district president at the International New Thought Alliance, an inspirational speaker, author and a Licensed Prayer Practitioner (RScP). She is the author of Journal Like God: Harness the Creative Power of the Universe Through Journal Writing and “ The Peephole Effect – Perception is Everything.” Maryann is also the host of the on-line show, Power, Perception & You!  She appears in the new thought film “As A Man Thinketh” directed by award-winning filmmaker Jon Miller, which also features Rev. Michael Beckwith, Edwene Gaines, Dr. Joe Vitale and other new thought leaders.

Maryann spent most of her career in corporate America (IBM) prior to establishing her career in spirituality.

Gabriella LIVE! FREE!

Ever since I’m back from a wonderful trip to India, I have not stopped writing music.  In one of the songs I say, “Your love pours like a rushing tornado…” and that’s what it’s been like.  After 4 or 5 songs emerged,  all dedicated to LOVE I felt I’d like to do a show of this new material and bring the experience of my time at Meher Baba’s tomb to everyone.  I am so grateful to music and poetry as a chance to try to express the inexplicable.   Wow – that might be another song!   Much love and hope to see you there.”

Gabriella is a singer songwriter who accompanies  herself on guitar.  Her style ranges from folk to inspirational.  A regular at The Oasis, she’s often collaborated with local musicians and has produced 7 CDs over her 30 years of performing.

A Restorative Approach to Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia, and Other Chronic Illness
with Tim Yarborough and Belinda Macri

Tim Yarborough and Belinda Macri of RawlsMD will educate and inspire you on a possible journey of recovery from Lyme, Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue.
North Carolinian Dr. Bill Rawls founded Vital Plan and RawlsMD based upon his own experience with Lyme disease and his will to discover a way to regain his health.  An extraordinary man and a story that will lift your spirits.  Assisting many here in the United States and abroad, his unique restorative protocol relies primarily on herbs, nutrition, and lifestyle practices to address the roots causes of Lyme and many other chronic illnesses.

In this presentation, we’ll share Dr. Rawls’ story and approach with time for discussion about how shifts in our current health care system must be made to address the full spectrum of health. We’ll discuss specific herbal combinations recommended by Dr. Rawls as well as nutrition and lifestyle recommendations that address the true root cause of many chronic illnesses; a concept Dr. Rawls calls Chronic Immune Dysfunction.  We have far more control over our health than has previously been understood when it comes to these chronic conditions.

TimTim is a native to the Triangle and longtime proponent of holistic health. A graduate of UNC-CH in Environmental Studies, and a yoga teacher, Tim is now the Wellness Director at Vital Plan where he works with Dr. Rawls creating wellness programs.  He is passionate about helping people learn about how to care for their own health and the health of their communities to the greatest extent they can.
