Dr. Joe Dispenza—everyone needs to go to that. He’s talking on Sunday and it’s a two-hour workshop. He might be someone people don’t know or have not heard of in Atlanta.

“There’s never been a more critical time for seeking wholeness in our lives,” Emblom Castro says about life in America today. “Families are being separated. I believe that what we are going through is a dark night of the soul. To be frank, doing this in Georgia is a deeper calling for me, not just to create a wellness event. Education equals empowerment,” adds Emblom Castro, “and that is our assignment with Attune.”
We are sharing a bunch of inspiration and resources in today's episode! We cover all our woo favorites from books and apps to products, people, and practices. No matter if you're just getting into the world of spirituality and personal growth... or you've been into crystals, high vibes, and moon journaling for years, we hope you enjoy this conversation and find new woo things to explore!
Make time for wellness during the four-day Attune conference. Held at Serenbe, this gathering (Nov. 8-11) will offer attendees the opportunity to hear speakers such as Elizabeth Gilbert, author of “Eat, Pray, Love.” A typical day at the event will begin with meditation, tea time, or a nature walk, followed by a yoga class, brunch, workshops, the chance to recharge and explore Serenbe before dinner and end with live music.
