SNAP! From Chaos to Calm: Book Launch & Workshop with author Julie Potiker

Thursday, February 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Join us on Thursday, February 2nd from 6:00 – 8:00 pm for one of the most unique book launches you have ever experienced! Julie Potiker’s latest book, SNAP! From Chaos to Calm, will be released in early 2023. The launch will begin with a festive reception with light bites and beverages and will be followed by an hour-long mindfulness workshop. The workshop begins promptly at 6:30 pm. Each registrant will receive a hardcover copy of SNAP! and Julie will be available for a signing at the close out of the evening. 

About SNAP!: Helping you move out of emotional chaos and into a state of calmness, author Julie Potiker introduces her SNAP Method, evidence-based mindfulness practices that are easy to learn, remember, and do anywhere, even in the heat of the moment.

This handy acronym has the clever addition of a somatic component to help people handle chaos with the “snap” of their fingers. Trained in multiple mindfulness and human development systems, Potiker has distilled her deep and expansive knowledge into a program that meets people where they are—overwhelmed, overextended, and over the top. Potiker has figured out what works for the millions of multi-tasking women, parents, caregivers, and anxious individuals who have never felt more perpetually pulled in multiple directions.

SNAP! is for time-constrained people who desperately need new responses to life stressors while still juggling their daily worlds of family, work, relationships, health, and home
