Connecting with Your Inner Child Weekend Workshop

Who’s ready to play? Do you remember how? Does it matter if we play? Join Dr. Scott Ferreira and Donna Jutras Tobey for this fun filled weekend of PLAY! Set aside this weekend to act like a child, think like a child and understand WHY that’s so important in our lives. We are always SO busy all the time! How about taking a breather to remember who you are and what you love. Connecting with that little child that lives in your heart and wants to be remembered, played with and heard. Creative play opens up all kinds of hidden aspects of yourself that want to shine and perhaps is that part of yourself you have forgotten exists.
