Harnessing Hope and Creativity

Sunday, April 25, 2021
1pm - 2pm

No life can be lived without hardships and challenges. It is impossible to escape aging, sickness, and death for all are part of life and proof of a life being lived. How can we create the greatest value amidst life’s realities of challenge, impermanence and flux? Come join me in learning ways to harness your creativity. Through a system of inquiry, you will explore how to unleash your strength and courage and find hope where you thought it could not exist. Together we will challenge self-imposed limitations and turn them around in an effort to transform your own life into one filled with hope and victory. Celebrate your life!

This is a 45-60 minute workshop that includes some larger group discussion as well as small break-outs.

WHY ISN’T IT SPRING YET!?!? Please join The Meeting Point in battling those winter blahs with community, connection, and self care. February in Boston is kinda the worst! It’s windy and icy and it gets dark in the middle of the day. But don’t despair! We’d like to invite you to brave the weather and join The Meeting Point community for adventures and (re)discovery in wellness and wholeness!

We will be offering:

  • art therapy
  • information about Forest Therapy
  • Zumba

We look forward to seeing you for this radical approach to winter survival.

This event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP with a free ticket, which gives us an idea of how many folks to expect for the fair. Also note, some of the services are first-come, first-serve and require on-site sign-up (e.g. chair massages) so consider coming early and put your names down, then explore the drop-in activities while you wait! Otherwise, join us whenever the mood strikes—we’re here for you! ____

Transportation and Accessibility: The Meeting Point is close to various bus stops (e.g. 42) and the Green Street MBTA subway station (Orange Line). Our space has gender neutral, single-stall restrooms and is wheelchair accessible on the first floor while the 2nd floor has a chairlift for access. There is free on-street parking as well (please do not park in the Meeting Point parking lot).

  • Disclaimer: There will be no yoga puppies. That picture was just to get your attention. But the likelihood of puns is very high!
