Moving Forward in Uncertain Times
November 9, 2011

The world seems to change at an ever-faster pace. How do we navigate the disruptions around us and create the changes we want in our own lives?

Date and time

Egret without solid footingWednesday, November 9, 2011
7–8:30 p.m.


Moving Forward in Uncertain Times is a dynamic workshop that will provide “tools for transformation”—strategies for finding stability, gaining clarity, and navigating change.

Participants will:

  • Identify reliable resources—people, places, and things already in your world that can be consistently relied upon to assist in navigating change.
  • Gain perspective—clarify not only where you want to go, but also what’s right in front of you right now.
  • Get into action—go forward with specific strategies and actions for moving toward a richer, fuller, more satisfying life.
