Relocating Your Elders to Virginia


The process of helping elder loved ones move to be closer for care and involvement purposes can seem daunting but, is easily manageable with planning and an organized approach.  Once the decision has been agreed upon and a time frame established, the steps are clearer.  In this seminar, we will discuss the process, steps and logistics of the planning and organizing and also some ways to help your elders adapt and thrive in their new locale.  

  Being Open to a New Year


With the start of a New Year, many people begin with intentions and images of desired ways to experience a new year of life.  Ironically, much of the source of that “new” image is in direct connection to what feels like a longing or unmet need from the year(s) before.  So how can we welcome this New Year openly and freely with the past that preceded it?  And how can we integrate a new relationship with time which allows events from the past to serve us and not hold us back?  There are skills and concepts which can directly impact your understanding and approach to your past, present, and future.  This workshop is designed to help you welcome this New Year of Life with an open and inviting sense.
