Women of the Rim Country are invited to gather “Pearls on the Path” at the 11th annual Women’s Wellness Forum Saturday, March 14 at the Payson High School campus.
This event is designed to help women re-balance, renew the inspiration within, re-create and illuminate a path to wellness.
The day’s opening event is a dance party — Karoomba. This Latin dance sensation was created by Payson’s Christy Walton to celebrate her Latin roots and share her lifelong passion for dance.
Attendees can enjoy a continental breakfast as they collect their registration materials and then hear opening remarks and the keynote address. The featured speakers are Pauline Napier and Michelle Napier-Dunnings, who will present the program “Trusting the Healing Wisdom Within” through stories and reflections that offer the team’s perspectives on health and wellness.
The team has written a book, “Trust-Building An Experiential Approach” based on their belief that “in order to bring healing power into our communities, we need to learn to trust. This trust is built on the knowledge that each of us has tremendous wisdom, inherited from past generations, residing within each of us, and impacting the next generation.”
They will further explore this belief in one of the breakout sessions following the keynote presentation.
Napier and Napier-Dunnings will offer “Tapping the Healing Energy Within” which builds on the ideas presented in the keynote address. Participants will engage in an interactive session where small groups will explore their historical culture and its impact on their individual well-being today. They will look at how “wellness” feels, looks and sounds.
In addition to the breakout led by the keynote speakers, participants in the 2009 Women’s Wellness Forum will have eight other sessions to choose from. The schedule allows for three programs for each participant. The cost is $10 per person, but scholarships are available. However, there is room for only 300 participants.
