Join PIECE OF MINE Arts on Saturday, October 20th from 3-6 PM at Jumblies Theatre for a rejuvenating gathering of health/self-care workshops led by professional wellness practitioners. Move, connect and learn about the benefits of yoga, essential oils, and colon hydrotherapy, followed by a fresh meal to close.
The goal of this event is to provide an opportunity to reflect, increase awareness, grow and give back!
All proceeds will go towards the development of local Black theatre artists and our Living Black Genius Youth Program.

// Essential Oils // What all the fuss? How to use them? Where to get the good stuff? + DIY tutorial.
Facilitator: Hi, I’m Liz Agudelo! Seems like a tricky name to pronounce, but it’s not so bad once you give it a try – sound it out like this “Aw-goo-day-low” and that’s as far as my phonetic skills go!
I have my diploma in Child and Youth Work and have a passion for working with families and mothers.
Essential oils have changed my family’s life and now I run my own business through Young Living. I’m looking forward to sharing my oily experiences with you.
// Colon Hydrotherapy and Nutrition 101 // Butt wait!? Colon is the second brain. You are what you eat.
Facilitator: Ellimayah Walker has lived her life with the sole purpose of spreading a measure of truth to the world and being a voice to the voiceless. It was in her soulful pursuit for a greater spiritual enlightenment that she discovers the powerful miracles within, without and around us. She is currently a Colon Hydrotherapy Clinician who is on the verge to venture further into the art of naturopathy.
