Sarah Brune of Inner Harmony Healing will showcase her business at the Home-Based and Small Business Association’s eighth annual Small Business Expo Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Native Sons Hall in Courtenay.

At her booth, Brune will answer questions about benefits of the Bach Flower Remedies for people and pets.

“The Bach Flowers are very much like life’s safety net, they are there to assist when life seems to be spinning out of control, and help to put you back in control,” she said. “The remedies can help with depression, fear, life’s vocation and general decision making.”

In addition to signed copies of her book Bach Flower Reflections, the famous Rescue Remedy will be available to try and purchase.

Brune will facilitate a Bach Flower Circle Tuesday from 7-9 p.m. at the Anco Motel in Courtenay. The topic is Three simple solutions to reduce stress. No previous knowledge is necessary. Cost is $5 at the door.

Brune will also teach a Bach Flower introductory seminar Oct. 13 and 14 in Vancouver. Participants will experience the remedies first-hand and learn how to incorporate them into daily life.
