4. Sing Out Loud! Songs for a Happier Day
Music is healing. It opens our hearts and spirits and gets us breathing and singing a joyful sound. Join Paul in this enjoyable and hopeful time of singing as we sing all types of songs, and use simple exercises with sound to relax and unwind, and even have a few quiet moments to connect to the God centering place within. No pressure, no performance requirements. We will sing and see where it leads!
5. Help Is On The Way!
Care for the Caregiver and Over-Committed!
This is a time of renewal and self care for those who care for others all the time. If you say “I never have time for myself,” then this workshop is for you. Learn new survival skills and practice self care while setting boundaries so you can “give care” with renewed perspective and balance. Explore strategies to surf the rougher days with moments of peace while keeping the pieces together.
6. The Landscape of Grief
Grief and loss affects us all at some time in our lives. When it does, even if expected, can bring us into an uncharted territory and leave us searching for a new normal. This workshop will provide a perspective on the grief journey and offer insights as well as supportive tools for facing loss and transition.
This workshop is for all who want to better understand the faces of grief as well as be open on how to support others during this time. Integrating music, stories, education, humor, and a spirituality of hope, Mr. Alexander helps us find a purpose and connection to what really matters in this universal experience.
