Struggles, Strengths and Strategies

• Please join us for the Fall 2018 series!
• The first event of the day, from 10-11 am, will be Reflections, a discussion circle in which we will be talking about how the topic of the previous week has played out in our lives. I hope you will join us as it is always interesting to share our thoughts and in so doing learn about each other's life experiences. (Tea and coffee will be available.)
• Registration begins at 11 am and continues until 12.15 pm for those who can only attend the main lecture.
• The more formal portion of the forum begins at 11.30 am with a short personal focus usually given by one of our participants.
• This is followed by the main lecture with a short Q&A period from 12 noon to 1 pm.
• From 1-1.30 pm members of the audience have an opportunity to share their own experiences and opinions.
• Many of us continue our WE day with a planning session where we are working on the Fall 2019 series until 3.30pm. We have nearly completed work on the series "Am I My Sister's Keeper?" for next spring.
We hope to see you at all or some of the events, and can promise you an intriguing day!
