Writing, Dialogue & Discussion: Let's Talk 

This unique program features an engaging dialogue created by the audience. It opens with a 10-minute think/write, after which the class will share its ideas and impression. Each session includes a "prompt" to lead the focus of the weekly topics. You can utilize the prompt to create a journal, poem or story of your choice. You can "freestyle" your writing as well. Realizing your own talents through writing and dialogue is a goal of this fresh new course. (Please bring a pen and pad/notebook to class).

Men, Let's Talk 

Men, our work is winding down or changing, and our children have moved on. Our thoughts now center on the options associated with growing older. We think more about our health, our relationships, and our resources. All of a sudden, our world looks different. This men's discussion group is a time to talk, to listen, and to share stories, and experiences in as safe, no obligation environment. It's a time to dig a little deeper into who we are, and what we have in common. It's a time to learn and continue to grow as we look at the years ahead.

It's Not What We Say, It's What They Hear 

This presentation is a communication skills workshop for parents of adult children, including role playing and practice sessions. In this workshop, you will learn how to give advice so your adult kids don't think you are from the Stone Age and gain an understanding of when it's OK to say something (and how to say it) or when it's best to simply keep your mouth shut!
