CSS Men's Club Breakfast
with guest speaker Veronica (Ronnie) Shaffer

Breakfast - 9:30 am
Speaker - 10:00 am
Fee - $10 at the door

Ronnie's topic will be her research and book on women in prison.

"I Hear Your Cry: Women in Prison" shares the extraordinary process of how one woman took a dream, nurtured it into reality, and shared her inspirational message with women prisoners-never give up. Author Veronica A. Shaffer has always relied on her inner voice to lead her, but it was her perseverance and commitment to personal growth that eventually allowed her to share the benefits of yoga and meditation with women prisoners. In this poignant account, Shaffer compromises with prison officials who ask her to rename her program "Fit and Wellness," and begins her life-transforming work. Although her personal experiences differ from those of the female prisoners she educates, she is able to identify with their powerlessness and desperation-two demons she had personally battled as a young woman. Her years of teaching are complemented by the amazing lessons learned from women who struggle with addictions, obesity, physical handicaps, grief over separation from loved ones, anger at the men left behind, and loneliness without friends.
Wishing all our members and community a Happy Passover!
