Healing Journeys: Nevada County offers plenty of healing classes

It is amazing to me the amount of classes, events and workshops offered in our community to assist in healing the mind, body, emotions and spirit.

Would you like to find out about such classes? Here’s how: take a look at The Union, page A2 daily, (they will eventually move to another page; stay tuned) or The Prospector on Thursdays; look at community bulletin boards around town; or click on the Web site, http://www.insightdirectory.com which offers a free calendar of events.

In addition to new events, there are many continuing yoga and movement classes from local studios and gyms, as well as classes devoted to higher consciousness and healing practices.
