With Michael Lerner, September 21st 7-9pm
- Monday, September 21, 7-9pm
Each of us carries a map of our psyche and a map of "reality" within us.
We often don't realize how deeply these maps affect our sense of
who we are, where we come from, why we are here, where we are going,
and to whom we are accountable.
We also don't realize how deeply these maps influence our ability
to heal in the face of illness and loss.
The maps we developed over our lifetimes may not serve
us best as we continue our journeys.
We'll explore how becoming our own map-makers can change our
reality and change our lives.
Our programs are open to the community, and tailored to meet the needs of people affected by cancer. Classes and workshops are free or low cost on a pay-as-you-can basis, ensuring that our programs are accessible to everyone.
