Back by popular demand, the APOS Communications Committee has scheduled the 2023 Decompression Sessions.  You are welcome to pop in or stay for the whole hour and 1/2.  These are FREE but registration is required!

Harvesting Personal Growth - Join us on October 11th - Register HERE

“The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest.” William Blake

We spend our time giving to others yet often have difficulty in receiving the gifts we are given.  As we enter the fall season, we will reflect on what we have harvested over the past year in both our work and our personal life as well as ways to bring awareness of our harvests and simple gratitude into our daily lives.

This experiential session will offer an opportunity to engage within yourself and with others.  Please have materials handy for a writing exercise.

Looking forward to being with you!
