Who is in your Tribe? Care Circles Workshop July 5, 10 a.m.

Providence Place First Fridays, Holyoke MA

We’ll work with a map that creates a broad snapshot of the people with various roles in your support network. Whether you are a “solo-ager” or a grandparent surrounded by the ideal family, the question comes up, “Who will be there for
me when I have needs? And, who will be needing me?” We have the opportunity to be both receivers and givers.

RSVP:  Contact staminacarol@gmail.com for location and directions.

I LEFT FEELING RECHARGED, MORE OPEN, KINDER.
You nurtured each and every one of us, and all of us together.                                         
I realized that there is such a great need for STAMINA to be a bigger part of our lives.
— STAMINA Workshop Participant

 

In a life of constant change balance is a verb, not a noun.

What practices will help you keep your balance even as life constantly changes?

Each moment of our lives falls like a seed upon the seedbed we have become.

When you imagine yourself in your last decades of life, how would you most like to be?

Have a wonderful time enriching your ground.

How about making the way you age an act of love and service?

Be ready to receive what life presents.

It is possible . . . 

to make the last part of our lives the most satisfying yet
