UPCOMING EVENTS

March 8, 15 and 22, 2018, 6:30-8:00pm: Time Management for Retirees! 

Time management is not really about managing time, it is about answering the question “How do I need to structure my days so that this structure results in me feeling physically, emotionally and spiritually energetic while also being engaged in a life that is meaningful and fulfilling to me as an individual?”

This 3 part workshop series will teach a unique approach for anyone in charge of their time and will walk you step by step through setting up a time structure that is unique and perfect for you. Between sessions you will get a chance to start implementing the strategies suggested and come back with questions.

Now that you get to choose what happens in your days, why not choose something that is just right for you?

Location: Cuyahoga Library, Beachwood Branch, 25501 Shaker Boulevard, Beachwood, Ohio 44122. Registration: 216-831-6868.

 

The Power of Meditation: A Gentle Introduction. 8 weeks of learning meditation class. Evening class, start date and time TBD. 

Most of us long for a deeper sense of quiet and calm in the midst of our hectic and overly connected days. Meditation is a powerful and tender way to bring more serenity and peace into your regular daily routine. This workshop series will:

  • Introduce you to a variety of meditation styles
  • Give you the tools to start your own daily meditation practice
  • Show you: convincing evidence of the benefits of meditation on the brain and physical and mental health, the history of meditation, effect of meditation for children and more

Start small and allow your meditation practice to grow naturally and observe this change to affect many different areas of your life in a positive way. Please bring a mat or blanket, pillow and journal. Location: Insight Wellness, 25901 Emery Road, Suite 112, Warrensville Heights, Ohio.

October 24, 2017 and November 7 and 21, 2017, 6:30-8:00pm: Financial Happiness. 3 part workshop series on the Psychology of Money.

Much has been published recently about  mindful money and doing “money work” to change our relationship with money with the goal of feeling less stressed around our finances. In this workshop series, you will explore your beliefs and behavior around money and  learn strategies recommended by financial therapists to increase psychological financial peace.  

It turns out the reasons we feel rich are not as directly tied to the number of your net worth as you might think. Why not add a psychological wealth plan to your existing financial plan? You can only walk away richer than you walked in! This is NOT a financial planning class. (We will not discuss investment strategies or social security.)
