Whether we are rich or broke, lonely or loved, on track or directionless, in shape or overweight, clinging to the past or hoping for a better future — whatever your current reality — know that you have the power to change it. You can choose a happier experience, not just for tomorrow, but for every moment of your life. If you want your story to be more inspired, think about changing your script, and join us for eight evenings designed to kick start your New Beginning. It meets Thurs., May 28, Jun.4, 11; Mon., Jun.15; Thurs., Jun. 18; Mon., Jun. 22; Thurs., Jun.25 AND Mon. Jun. 29, 7 – 9:30 pm.
