Upcoming Lunch and Learns:
March 21st – The Art of Condolences
Following the death of his wife, David learned just how difficult it was for people to effectively express their condolences, often unintentionally saying things that were more hurtful then helpful. This workshop is intended to assist individuals in learning the right things to say (or not say) when you trying to be supportive of someone experiencing grief.
Guest Speaker: Dr. David Hornung
Registration Deadline: March 15th
April 18th – Spring Death Cleaning
Before you let the title scare you, we promise this workshop is NOT about death. Death Cleaning addresses the many aspects of contemporary life that makes us most anxious. For those who feel they have accumulated too much stuff and that all this stuff is getting in the way of their spiritual development, Death Cleaning offers a practical guide to de-cluttering.
This workshop is intended to help you de-clutter your life; both materially and spiritually and ties into the bigger message concerning getting your affairs in order.
(Based on the Death Cleaning book written by Swedish Artist, Margareta Magnusson titled The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning: How to Free Yourself and Your Family from a Lifetime of Clutter.)
Guest Speaker: Elizabeth (Bess) Kirnie
Registration Deadline: April 12th
No programs will take place during July and August
