"As women, we face unique challenges as mothers, wives, sisters, friends, and caregivers in our daily lives. This event is for women of all ages to create a sense of community," said Mayor Mahr. "Together we will create a space where valuable guidance will be shared in order to lift one another up in our community."

"It's important that we, as women, take time to relax, unwind, and rejuvenate. That's why this initiative is so important," Mayor Mahr told TAPintoSPF. "Women are the caretakers of their families, but they often do not stop to take care of themselves. I hope they will take the opportunity to take advantage of this offering."

Attendees will leave with the basics of meditation, critical resources to continue your wellness path, fun swag bag with sample oils and healthy snacks, and a sense of belonging. To RSVP, contact Pat Hoynes
