Special Upcoming Events

Your Heart is in Your Hands (Tuesday 6:00pm)

Does it ever seem that…

๏ your loved ones just don’t get or accept your emotional needs?
๏ one or more of your beloveds is an emotional enigma?
๏ not everyone appreciates your giving, fiery, considerate or loyal nature?

Spouses, kids, parents, partners, siblings, friends…your most important relationships can all be enhanced when you understand the unique emotional wiring etched into your (& their) hands. Miscommunication and resentment fade, and love & acceptance grow. Who doesn't want to feel loved & accepted as they are?

A free workshop with AnnMarie Roth, owner of Nourish Your Purpose & Certified Hand Analyst

Please arrive at 6:00pm to have your heart lines read.

-Discover the 4 primary heart line types
-Learn to identify them in yours & others’ hands
-Clarify the dos & don’ts of your own emotional style
-Gain insight into how others perceive you in relationships
-Are you the Passionate, the Hermit, the Big Heart or the Rational Romantic?
…perhaps you’re a combination of two!
