INC-Branding-5
    Dear Friends

    Whether you want to recharge your "batteries", have a culinary experience, or walk in the beautiful nature of the Sierra de la Guadarrama, this week offers a variety of activities.

    For all Spanish learners among us, Anne Pinder has some entertaining tips in this eNews on how to improve our language skills; and our busy Activity Team will introduce their new initiative - The Movie and Theatre Divas.

    As announced in the previous editions, we now start to offer our members the opportunity to advertise their services in the new "Classified" section. Also included in this eNews is an appeal to everyone who is involved with a charity. Our social media coordinator Jamie is currently compiling a list of volunteering opportunities and would be happy to hear from you.

    So you see, there is a lot to discover, I hope you enjoy reading.

    Your eNews editor,
    Alexandra

    MESSAGE FROM THE

    VICE PRESIDENT TEAM

    reset
    We all deserve a little “me time” and what better way to achieve that than through tomorrow’s monthly meeting! Aptly titled “Reset: Mind, Body and Spirit,” we look forward to an experience that is sure to leave us revitalized and re-energized for the year ahead.

    The “reset” will begin as soon as we set foot into this historically protected and structurally ornate building. Built in 1883 as a regal mansion, the building still boasts many of the architectural delights of the time. From the old carriage entrance, to the marble and wood paneling, to the natural light and the subtle tastes of nature throughout, we will be immediately transported into a calmer and more relaxed state.

    After some light refreshments and a bounty of breakfast selections, we will begin the formal part of the meeting. Two of our very own INC members: Char Tamason and Barbara Scalara bring this unique opportunity to tap into our own energy flow. First, we will gain insight about the link between intuition and health. As the founder of “Health by Intuition,” Char will guide us to some tips and tricks to help us connect with our natural state of “calm, peace and bliss.” We will learn how to listen to our inner voice in order to help us align to our “core essence” – thus ultimately leading to our “highest good.”

    Following a short break, our journey returns with master hypno-therapist and Success Hypno Coach, Barbara. We will travel into our past, look at our current states and send messages to our future selves in order to release emotional baggage and manifest our goals for 2022. We will take positive learnings and channel our subconscious mind so that “we don’t just survive - we thrive” in the days to come.

    Of course, none of this can be achieved if we are not comfortable in regards to personal safety and COVID-19. We have several plans to make this experience as safe as possible. First, all of the Communidad de Madrid’s regulations are in play: masks to be worn unless eating or drinking, safe distances to be observed at all times, and hand gel available at several stations throughout. Second, windows will be open to allow for appropriate air flow (balanced with comfortable air temperature of the room). Finally, we are offering this meeting with virtual options via Zoom.

    We look forward to seeing you – whether in person or online!

    Your VP Team
    Vicky, Tina and Hyacinth

    Enjoying life – safely – together!
