The Union Health Project

Come by for a $20 Health Alignment today at North Charleston Farmers Market, and the first 14 people to get a health alignment will take home a guided journal and meditation CD. Gift Certificates are also available if you think of someone who is struggling to find the path toward their dreams and health.

Every Thursday for the month of October, we will be collaborating with Sarah Harvey of Dreamweaver for some mindful art sessions.

A special thanks to Homeworks Music Studio for getting the meditation CD prototypes out in an insanely short timeframe, and to @createspace1 for their solution mindset in getting this guided journal prototype to my front door.

If you are not sure what a Health Alignment is, stop by and find out.
