JUST THINK....WRITE NOW!
Flint Public Library, Friday, August 7 at 11:30am
Create the life you want through setting goals, positive thinking and purposeful journaling. This group explores the latest scientific discoveries about the brain and how it works, emotional well-being, and health as well as ancient philosophies about the nature of consciousness and the human experience. Self reflection and journal work enhance the group discussions. This month we will be embarking on a journey of self-discovery which will continue through the year 2015. A journey or quest can be a metaphor for life. As we begin this new year filled with possibilities, we will get to know the key elements of a successful and inspiring venture.
At our July 10 meeting we will be talking about ideas from the book "Find Happiness Now" by Jonathan Robinson. You do not have to read the book to enjoy the discussion or the journal exercises.
