EVENT: Gong Meditation

Sound is a potent, powerful energy that can express love and concern (the gentle hum your mother used to lull you to sleep), or cause great pain and destruction (car horns honking).

The Fun Police is Delivering a Message about Refinery Policies

Throughout the years of being an esthetician, following other spa professionals, I'd see them posting on social media about cold and flu season and thought "gosh that takes some gonads to be so forward with people!" But here I am, being the fun police and having to have the serious conversation myself.  It goes without saying - I love you “to the moon and back” but not so much that I want your cold, flu, cold sores or other contagious items.
