Finding Strength, Direction and Serenity
while Navigating Through Difficult Times
All great changes are preceded by chaos.
~ Deepak Chopra
Big changes, especially ones that we did not anticipate can be overwhelming and even frightening. A concerning diagnosis. A relationship that seems no longer sustainable. Financial and professional setbacks. The empty nest. Losing loved ones. Those challenging times where we think my life “is not supposed to be this way.”
After all, we had a plan, right? Or at least a hope of what our life would look like.
It can be challenging to find our way through these times. We find ourselves disappointed, disillusioned and overwhelming with life, wondering what to do, where to go and how to stay calm in the meantime. Or how our life will look when this is over, if it is ever over.
Facilitator, Karen Ely, understands how unsettling it is to feel stuck in difficult times. She has been there often in her 73 years. And through her own experiences, deep faith and the knowledge that there are immense gifts nestled in these difficult times, she knows that life can be transformed in wondrous ways by navigating these times in a peaceful, mindful way.
Karen invites you to join her for a day of radical discover where you will:
~ Learn that you are not alone.
~ Understand that difficult junctures contain life-enhancing gifts.
~ Recognize how expectations and attachments lead to unhappiness.
~ Gain clarity and skills for navigating these transitions with calm and awareness.
~ Return home with a toolbox that will serve you today and throughout your life.
My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance
and in inverse proportion to my expectations.
~ Michael J. Fox
