 Dear Members -

I can't believe it's already April and I've just celebrated my third TTN anniversary!

As the weather transitions from one season to another, so our lives continue to transition.  You may have recently retired or moved to the City, or perhaps you're thinking of starting a new career, but you're not quite sure.

We introduced a new program last year called Life Transition Services (LTS) that focuses on talking circles and workshops led by professional facilitators with expertise in transition.  Read on to learn more about LTS, and visit the Events Calendar to register.

And don't forget to... Enjoy Your Day,
Barbara Alpern

Participants came with work, retirement, and relationship issues.  In their own words they said they were looking for "guidance," how to overcome "the fear of leaving," "how not to have work define me," how to "get more comfortable," "find structure," "overcome social isolation," and "live a richer existence."  The guidance and sharing quickly began...  Read More
