Soul-Tending in Times of Transition, Dec 6

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

Saturday, 8:30am to 4pm (half-day option: 8:30 to noon)
Do you find yourself in the midst of transition and in need of some direction? Transition is the process we undergo when we encounter “change”.  Changes such as: starting a new job or school, moving to a new place, making a commitment to a life partner, welcoming a new member into our family, or grieving some loss.  In between the letting go of the old and taking hold of the new, we find ourselves in the “neutral zone” which can be chaotic, but can also provide an opportunity for us to look at our lives through a new lens. Join Dr. Joe Sherman, pediatrician, and Philip Pascual, a new counselling psychology student at Seattle School, as we explore how to tend to our souls while we navigate these transitions and come to know ourselves more fully. A light continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. This is a free offering with a suggested donation of $20. Please RSVP to Philip!
