The Art and Practice of Living with Nothing and No One Against You
Sat., Jan. 11, from 9:00 AM - 2:00 pm.
Have you ever wondered why it is that despite all the efforts you make in your home and work life and in your spiritual practices you may still not be seeing lasting results?  Recent research into the workings of the human brain may be shedding some light on why we may still find ourselves living a sub-optimal life, stuck in old patterns of thought, feeling and action .  Visiting Minister Rev. Christine Garza is the facilitator for this workshop on the Q Process, a powerful, multifacted experience to energize individuals and communities to transform any circumstance into an opportunity to manifest their full potentials.  A 60-page workbook, three debriefing sessions, webinars and other support tools and resources are included.  SEE credit available.  Fee:  $40.00.   Please sign up in advance in the Book Room so we know how many workbooks to bring.  Indicate what premade, precooked snack you plan to share with others at lunchtime.
