The Spa of Colonial Williamsburg offers wellness seminars in April
The Spa of Colonial Williamsburg continues its series of wellness programs with Saturday morning personal growth seminars April 4, 11 and 18, 2009.
Activities begin at 8 a.m. with an optional group walk through Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area. From 9 – 11:30 a.m., storyteller Sharon Rogers leads a seminar designed to help participants renew their spirit through recalling stories of their own lives and cultures. The session includes gentle stretching and story meditation and continues with journaling, a writing exercise and sharing activities.
“The activities focus on the power of the story to build connections, conversation and community,” says Rogers.
Cost for the program is $50 for individuals or $80 for two people attending together.
