Personal Values and Self-Understanding Workshop
Have you ever wondered what are your guiding values in life? We are often told what should be important to us and may spend less time identifying what actually is important to us. During this experiential workshop, we will discuss what values are and their purpose, identify our personal values, and explore how to align our values with our behavior in the service of a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
Saturday, September 28th
The word “boundaries” can bring up a lot of different emotions and thoughts that can feel hopeful and scary. What does it mean to set a boundary, and how does that process look different when with a family member, romantic partner, friend, or co-worker? During this experiential workshop, we will define boundaries, explore myths about boundary-setting, complete a mindfulness exercise for identifying desired boundaries and practicing the setting of boundaries, and identify practical ways to integrate this skill into your life.
