The Institute is partnering with Meadowkirk at Delta Farms to bring this informative evening to participants on Friday, October 24, 2018.

Springfield, VA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/27/2018 -- The event will take place in Middleburg, VA, at Delta Farm from 7:00 pm to 9:15 pm.

During the evening event, Dr. Koessler will provide a talk discussing the weariness modern individuals feel due to the "epic busyness" of our time. The talk will include a practical discussion about how individuals today may seek a refreshing of mind and body and some common myths about rest. The goal is to help participants see there is a way to find rest in what has become a 24/7 world.
