At Shine Bright Workshops we talk alot about how differently kids and adults learn and absorb information, so right from the start we created a unique 4-part program. We understand that everyone learns differently so we put together topics and teach them in 4 ways.
Jane, Christine, and Marie each study and specialize in different wellness components and are certified in different areas in the wellness and healing industry. Each one is passionate about the topics they love, and bring their knowledge, trainings, and wisdom into the course creations.
"Everyone has the freedom to come up with their own piece and tie it all together."
We all absolutely love what we have created and what we do at Shine Bright Workshops. It's amazing to work, create, share, and laugh with interesting, fun (and funny), intelligent friends, and create something that has become all of our passion project.
We talk so often about how the workshops and connections we make fill our hearts and give back to us so much!
