New Beginnings Workshop

Screen Shot 2014-10-06 at 11.49.52 AM

Are you in a place where life is changing? Has a significant relationship ended or a partner deceased? Do you need a new career, or are you facing an “empty nest”? Or are you simply seeing possibilities that you never saw before?

It’s time to take stock and look ahead, assess your potential, and make a plan!

Why “New Beginnings”? We can help you with generating ideas, planning, and taking actions for the next stage in your life.

We will meet to support, encourage, and grow into a healthy “ME.” Topics will include goal-setting, self-esteem builders, self-care, and practical steps to a successful future.

New Beginnings will meet Mondays from 3:00-5:00 p.m. Sessions begin October 20th, 2014 and will run for six weeks. Pre-registration is required as space is limited. Please call The Women’s Center at 517-372-9163 to reserve your spot!
