Description

In these most challenging times, so many seek a sense of personal and spiritual foundation. In these two sessions we will examine a series of four values, drawn from tradition, and unpack how they can create a personal and spiritual foundation for moving forward in our lives. We invite you to join in this discussion as these values and texts speak to where so many of us are at this moment in our life’s journey.
