The Art of Luscious - a workshop of aphrodisiac truffles, and bellydance

Kick off your weekend with social dancing and soulful delights. We welcome you to come dance, relax, eat, greet, and enjoy.

Come to Healcrest for an experience of your senses! Delight in the aromas of the herb gardens, the soundscape of the urban wilderness, taste the terroir, and sway with the flora.

Join Michelle Soto for Adaptodisiac Truffles! Adaptogens- help your body respond to stress! Aphrodisiacs- increase sexual desire!

Together we will formulate the truffle your body needs most! Truffles are all VEGAN, SUGAR FREE, and absolutely delicious. Everyone will have opportunities to sample and take home these yummy treats.

Follow your senses from taste buds to belly with some community style bellydance. Join Dana Launius for a basic lesson, delight in your body and enjoy some open dancing. You’re invited to an evening of earthly enjoyment.
