Connection Cure Workshop

Connection Cure Workshop

Presented by Lisa Daron Grossman,
Certified Professional Coach and positive psychology practitioner certified in Mind-Body Medicine currently training in Compassion Cultivation through the Center for Compassion and Altruism at Stanford University. 

Lisa is traveling the country hosting workshops that aim to ignite the spirit, create conversation, and de-stigmatize loneliness in an increasingly disconnected society.

The Connection Cure workshop is an invitation to put down the phone, turn off devices and step back into humanity, alive, awake and connected. We are all wired to connect, and it’s proven to heal not only our souls, but our cells. 
Visit her website at: www.theconnectioncure.com to view workshop details and testimonials. 

Registration Deadline: Sunday, August 25, 2019
Members: $20, Guest: $30

Outreach will be the Special K Ranch - A Place to Call Home

Special K Ranch provides family-oriented Christian homes on a working ranch for adults who have developmental disabilities. Although unaffiliated, the program has a strong Christian emphasis in philosophy and practice. The ranch serves both men and women, ages 18 and older. The program is designed to serve people who may need to live within a supportive community for the entirety of their lives.

July 10th Meet and Greet
The July 10th Meet & Greet was held at Doc Harper's Tavern. About 15 members and guests gathered for a beverage and the opportunity to get further acquainted. Their special martinis were delightful!!
Rainy Trunk Sale
The One-and- Done Volunteer Group organized a 'Trunk Sale' as a fundraiser for our TTN chapter. We had 10 members show up with 'trunks' of items to sell on what turned out to be a rainy, chilly day - make that constant rain !! We were innovative (of course) with tarps and such. We covered our advertising costs and a donation to the location but optimism is high for more profits at the rescheduled event on August 10.
Community Outreach
Outreach Makes A  Difference

TTN women want to stay involved. They are using their skills to positively impact their own communities on a variety of levels. And they are changing the way organizations think of volunteers. No longer satisfied to just stuff envelopes, our members are directing resources, raising money and finding gratification in "giving back." 

One way we can "give back" is by making donations to local non-profits. In conjunction with each quarterly programs we highlight a worthy organization in need of donations. We ask that you consider a gift when joining us at the program.
