Ala Aldahneem, Life Coach

When life goes sour or hurts spring up, thoughts turn automatically to the negative. You get stuck in a vicious cycle of negative thoughts, and you can’t seem to think positively. You turn inward, and the negativity builds. The first step to staying positive is to explore the source of negativity.

The Detoxing Negativity Program provides the tools you need to get to know yourself better, discover your sources of negativity, and challenge yourself to be positive. In this 4-part, small group series, you’ll work with life coach Ala Aldahneem in her process to help you:

  • Challenge your thoughts
  • Add positive energy to the room
  • Gain the tools that lead to positivity

This course does require some sharing of personal stories and experiences. For a full outline of the class, visit Ala’s website.

Don’t delay! Register right away as classes may fill quickly. We also value our instructors’ time, so classes may risk being canceled due to low early enrollment. Thank you!

man holding up a bee hive

Whether you’ve been beekeeping for 5 or 50 years, you’re sure to learn new tricks of the trade and problem solving tips for a variety of aspects of beekeeping.

Come with questions and issues you may have related to:

  • Getting a colony through winter by dispatching the old queen in August
  • Raising your own queens by notching or grafting and making walk-away splits
  • Location of your hive and carrying capacity of your bee foraging area – what can you do to improve it if needed?
  • Strengthening weak colonies
  • Invaders (small hive beetles, varroa mites, wax moths, etc.)
  • Any other issues you’re having or new techniques you’d like to try

With more than 25 years of beekeeping experience, if you’d encountered an issue or want to try something new, Ken has most likely been there!
