Our next Shine event is coming up on Saturday, April 1st, and you’re invited to join in the magic. We’ve been really loving these spontaneous dance parties and group massage sessions at the last few Shines—anything to break out of our shell, connect with others, and give ourself permission to be… well, ourselves.
If you’re up for being more of you and connecting with others who are just being themselves, join us on April 1st. Space is limited. As always, we’ll be featuring an inspiring line-up of speakers, performers, musicians, plus food, philanthropy and community. And you’ll get to be a part of the new movement towards “sober” social events.
