Before the End of Life: Nuts & Bolts

Before the End of Life: The Nuts & Bolts

Has your planning been … lagging? How much planning for the years preceding your death have you really done? “Many folks have a will, and most have a game plan in their mind but whether they have shared these with family members is often – ‘No,’” says instructor Barbara Bush. “The best deaths I have seen are when the business of end of your life is taken care of by you! Information on property decisions, material goods, executorships, celebrations, getting your family involved with joy and lightheartedness….and so many more topics will be covered in this open format course.”

Changing with the Seasons

Changing with the Seasons

Whether we like it or not, the only constant in life is change, says new Community Ed instructor Kharizma Mcanulty. In this series, she says, participants “will walk through the gardens of your life looking at each season. 
As you would tend to your garden according to the season, you may tend to your body, mind and soul in the same ways. Each class will focus on the four seasons with class discussion, journaling prompts and soul enriching home-play. We will connect life experiences to the seasons they represent and learn what that means. Get the tools necessary to tend to the garden of your life with confidence, self-love and connection.”

Creating Your Joyful Life

Creating Your Joyful Life

Our own personal belief systems and self-talk set us up to perceive the world either negatively or positively, says instructor Violet Young. “We are not conscious of the patterns being formed as we are influenced and preconditioned by and through our upbringing and life experiences. Eventually we come to accept the ‘it’s just the way it is’ way of life, and this may lead to depression and anxiety. By exploring and learning to recognize our own patterns and triggers we give ourselves options to view situations from different perspectives helping us be more open to make choices that painlessly create new growth and joy.  Students who have taken this class report that they are enjoying their lives more, that they feel more positively about themselves and that they are motivated to be more kind to and aware of the needs of others.”

Love Lives Forever

Love Lives Forever

This class addresses, in a low-key, understandable and accepting manner, the concept that Love Never Dies and that connecting with deceased loved ones is possible. “The class is suitable for anyone who is open to the possibility of life after death or anyone who may have experienced unexplained events after the death of a loved one but is unsure if they have received actual messages,” said instructor Violet Young. “Love Lives Forever assists participants in becoming more aware of the possibility of messages from beyond the veil. In my experience, many people have experienced messages and visitations but are often self-conscious or afraid to believe it. I present my own experiences since my husband crossed over on April 6, 2015, as well as personal experiences with other family members. The class is a forum for people to share their own experiences and thoughts about the possibility that they have received messages from their loved ones and to explore their feelings about the experiences. Love Lives Forever is spiritually based, however it is not religious. During the class, techniques for quieting the mind, meditating and choosing a medium are offered as well as handouts and a resource list.”
