POSTPONED — 10 Point Manifesto: Focusing on Life in the Face of Illness


With Carole O'Toole

- Tuesday, December 13, 6:30-8:30pm

We apologize for the inconvenience, but this class has been postponed. We wish everyone a wonderful holiday and hope to announce a new date for Carole's talk soon.

During the holiday season, we often turn out attention toward gratitude and the life of the spirit. Sometimes living with cancer asks us to consider these things with more focus and urgency than we have before. 

In this talk, Carole O'Toole, cancer survivor turned cancer coach, shares her personal "10 Point" manifesto for living life fully. She focuses on the things that helped her perservere through illness and that are now guiding themes in her daily life: gratitude, joy, solitude, and connection are a few of them. This event will provide an opportunity to consider what might bring each of us fulfillment not just during the holiday season or in the face of cancer, but every day of our lives. 

This is a free event. Please note that registration is not required for this program, but is helpful for planning the event. Seating will be available on a first come, first served basis. We hope to see you there!
