If you have a copy of the book, The Four Agreements by don Miguel Ruiz, bring it along!


The Four Agreements is a set of principles that are based on some of the ancient teachings of the Toltecs, a society of artists and scientists from southern Mexico. When these four, simple yet powerful agreements are used consistently and in a committed way, they create a sense of freedom from conflict, emotional distress, relationship issues, help to quiet the constant storytelling in your mind, and remind you to choose Love over Fear, as often as possible. These agreements can be applied to any and all life situations and are effective in creating lasting change.


Vanessa Leigh White Fernandes has worked in the mental health field for the last 35 years. In that time, she has offered support and assistance to many different groupings of people. However, it wasn't until she stopped seeing others as broken, and she needing to fix them, that she started to see each person as a human being, just like herself. This began her on a journey of self discovery that has helped her to feel confident, and live her happiest, most peaceful life. She is founder of The Hugging Army, and one of her favorite ways to spend time is to offer free hugs in her local community of Scranton, and beyond, and writes about her experiences. She is author of the book, The Hugging Army: An Experience in Connection. She lives in Scranton with her wife and three kitties.
