Do the holidays cause you stress?  Too much travel/spending/obligation, and not enough meaning, fun, and connection?  Do you ever feel let-down after the presents are opened?  Clarifying and refocusing on your values and priorities can make Christmas more memorable, rejuvenating, and rewarding. This workshop will cover:

  • What’s not working for you now
  • Identifying your true values and priorities
  • Christmas, aka your part-time job
  • Gift-giving, family issues, obligations, traveling, conflict and communication.
  • 3 steps towards fixing things

Two workshop times are offered: Both are this Sunday, November 9th.  Again, the workshops are totally free, but you must pre-register.  Childcare is available at both workshop locations.

Past workshop participants had this to say about Simplify the Season:
“It really helped me stop and be more conscious of what we really want from the holiday.” 
“Refreshing & enlightening!
