Shamanic Soul Retrieval Journey

Shamanic Soul Retrieval Journey

◦ When: Friday, May 24th

◦ Where: Earthe Energe

WE all have experiences from our lives, ancestral memories, and past lives that were filled with fear. In our very best attempt to feel safe we often compromise parts of ourselves by creating contracts that inhibit our ability to experience the breadth of who we BE.

Such as-“I’ll change for you, so you will love and approve of me…”

These contracts manifest in the form of negative mindsets and ac(…)

Tips to meet people at social events

One of the best ways to meet new people at social events in Reno is by choosing a common theme or interest. If you like movies, why not go see a screening with people who also like movies! Then you already have something to talk about. Or if you’re into coffee or beer, a Coffee and Beer Garden Meet and Greet could be perfect for you. And keep in mind that smaller group settings can be less intimidating and easier to start conversations in.

Another thing that might worry you is introductions. Some people aren’t as keen on introducing themselves and others worry or get nervous about it. Why not level the playing field and go to an event where everyone is expected to introduce themselves and talk? It could be a networking event, an acting class, a singles event, or a book club. Not only are people looking to introduce themselves at these events but they’re also there to make friends.

Our final tip is on the age of the people you are going to meet. If you have your heart set on meeting people close to your own age, then research events so that you can find your chosen demographic. At the same time, we want to encourage you not to limit yourself. An age gap doesn’t necessarily mean a disconnect and the great thing about different age groups is that they can learn from each other!

You can find even more events in Reno on Visitrenotahoe.com, Sandsregency.com, or Visitrenotahoe.com.
