Dear Aangen Community,
I hope all of you are well and enjoying this beautiful Fall weather. I'd like to thank everyone who was able to participate in our Fall Yard Sale. We had a number of wonderful volunteers who always make the events so much FUN! Our shoppers and donors also make these events so incredible with their generosity. Thank you all so very much! We were very successful and raised over $800 to support the NAZ HIV/AIDS Orphanage and Aangen's Families in Need Program.

  • Part 1: We will explore the concept of manifesting, what our dreams our, and how to bring them to life.
  • Part 2: We will gather images in the week between both classes that represent our intentions and what we would like to manifest - we will re-iterate that dream to the class as we make our vision boards. Please bring images that speak to your dreams and a bristol board of your favorite color.
