Event description
Meet us on May 4th in Silver Spring, Maryland as we spend an entire day prioritizing internal success! Let's HEAL, REVEAL, AND GET REAL."

About this Event

We live in a society that is blinded by false reality, likes over love, followers over faith, views over vision, and selfies over self-worth. Wouldn't it be DOPE to disconnect from it all and prioritize our healing and internal success?

HEALfest is a holistic healing experience, hosted by Portia Richardson aka Purpose Coach Portia, A Certified Life & Wellness Coach from Washington, DC. Portia's vision for HEALfest is consistent with her desire to bring light to the importance of self-care and overall holistic wellness in a social-media driven society that is often disconnected from internal healing and focused solely on external success.

HEALfest is the ultimate UN-CONFERENCE. It is interactive, discussion-based, and personalized. Attendees will choose their own session agenda for the day! No matter where you are in your holistic healing journey, HEALfest is for you! Please review the following details regarding the retreat fully. I will see you on May 4th!
