CONFERENCE THEME: “It‘s Time To Live - Enjoy Life Fully Through Wellness & Healing “ reminds us of making a personal choice of leading a wellness journey, living a healthy life style, balance within ourselves, families, and maintaining mental & emotional attitude and spirituality. Ask yourselves; “How am I physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually? Am I depressed and stressed to the point I am lashing out. Are the abnormalities attributed to what is happening within my self, my family, community and where I work? If your answers are questionable, the New Year‘s Eve Sobriety Powwow Association cordially invite you to the 12th Annual Conference. This will be the place for rejuvenation.
