LIFE LUNCHEON:
Mind Full or Mindful? Discover the Joy of Mindfulness Practice

In our busy world, forms of mindfulness are not used as a spiritual practice but as mind-training techniques to help us focus our attention/awareness to be happier, more productive and compassionate. Research confirms that these practices can help us slow down and flourish in a multitasking and multimedia culture. Kristy McDonald has been practicing meditation for over 15 years. She traveled to Thailand in 2015 on a sabbatical for three months to learn new mindfulness, meditation and body-mind connection techniques. Join her to learn about some of the research on mindfulness, how to incorporate mindfulness into your life and how to create a personal mindfulness practice. Bring a sack lunch; beverages and dessert provided.

LIFE LUNCHEON: 
Garbage Bag Suitcase: A Foster Care Survivor’s Guide

Shenandoah Chefalo started life as a child with neglectful, drug and alcohol addicted parents. She mastered packing all of her belongings in minutes, changed multiple schools, faced hunger, cruelty, and loneliness. Finally at the age of 13, Shen had had enough and requested to be placed into foster care. Shen became part of the 3% of all foster care children who get into college, and the 1% who graduate. Despite her numerous achievements in life, she still suffers from the long-term effects of neglect. Award-winning author of her memoir, “Garbage Bag Suitcase,” Shen is relentless to find grass-root solutions on how to revamp the broken foster care system. Bring a sack lunch; beverages and dessert provided.
