WOMEN IN TRANSITION
Life is full of transitions, good, unpleasant, and a mixture of both. Quite simply, “transition” is anything that requires you to “let go” of the familiar and face the future with a feeling of vulnerability or uncertainty. Even a marriage of a family member or the birth of a new grandchild is a transition, for each changes the dynamics of something familiar. Are you a female resident who might benefit from a time of sharing, listening, and supporting one another? For more information, please contact Certified Educator Student, Syazana Durrani. ext. 7576.
