The healing hand and the feminine touch graced the halls of Escalante Middle School Saturday as the Women's Resource Center held Womenfest 2004. "Body and Soul" was the theme of this year's conference which focused on the physical, spiritual, and emotional health of women. The full day event provided a wealth of information and offered a variety of classes from introductory yoga to discovering the I Ching. In addition to the break-out sessions, attendees were greeted with a variety of booths and information at the Womenfest trade show catering to all things feminine.
