Emotionally Healthy Relationships - Defined & Connected

defined_and_connected.jpg

Your in-laws. Your parents. Your spouse. Your cherished friendships. Navigating the relationships that matter most to us as adults requires more than good intentions. We need to develop strong guiding principles that can help us do more than coexist, avoid, or just accommodate. In this workshop, discover how to stay true to yourself (defined) while staying engaged with the people you love (connected). This paradigm is a true relationship game-changer! You'll leave with a stronger understanding and practical tools to engage in healthier relationships. 

When: Saturday, February 9, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Where: Access Church, 1888 Stebbins Dr, Ste 103

Taught by John Lin and Trisha Taylor.
