Creating Balance in a Busy Life – The weeks of September 10 through October 8

Taking Charge of Your Holiday Experience
- Oct 16 Giving thanks/Being Grateful

- Oct 30 Ending Family Drama
- Nov 6 Can’t live with them; can’t live without them
- Nov 13 Abandoning the Holiday Blues
- Nov 20 Giving joyfully – cherishing others
Loving others is principally an attitude of mind, and the way in which we express it depends upon the needs, wishes and situations of each individual, as well as our karmic connection with them. If we make a special determination to cherish those with whom we are going to spend our time, and then put this determination into practice, our cherishing will be grounded and sincere. This will make our holidays harmonious and meaningful.
Everyone is welcome!
Time: Tuesdays 7:30pm – 8:45pm
