"The Spiritual Invitation of Worry" ~ A Workshop for Women

Are you a chronic worrier? Worry is the #1 mindset/emotion experienced by women. It is also a primary cause of sleeplessness, stress, emotional exhaustion and many health issues. On a spiritual level, worry takes us away from our ability to live in the present moment with joy and gratitude—with trust and faith in the Spirit. In this practical and powerful program, we will explore "6 steps to Living Worry Free." We'll de-mystify worry, take it apart, and take life-altering steps toward living more comfortably with uncertainty—with life as it is in this very moment—with Spirit at the helm.

Time: 6:30 - 9:00 p.m.

Where: Dominican Center, Grand Rapids, MI

Cost: $20
