Conscious Uncoupling: Collaborative Divorce 101
  Come and learn more about Collaborative Divorce, which is an innovative, civil method for divorce resolution. In a Collaborative Divorce process, the couple and their collaborative professional team members pledge to work out the details of finances, property division, and time-sharing with children with mutual respect and without the threat of court intervention.
  Every divorce contains emotional and financial challenges, which when addressed and dealt by collaboratively-trained professionals constructively and with compassion, healthier and more sustainable outcomes can be achieved, which benefit the entire family. The contributions and efforts of collaborative professionals, Lisa Jacobs, Monica Jennings, Melissa Lindsay, and others are demonstrating that the term "Collaborative Divorce" need not be an oxymoron.
  During this one-hour workshop, Lisa, Monica, and Melissa will present the basics of Collaborative Divorce: What it is, how it works, and when it will work most effectively. They will share how each of their roles on collaborative teams provide the emotional, financial, and legal support that divorcing families need for the best and most durable outcomes in order to maintain positive, ongoing relationships with each other, which will impact their lives, as well as the lives of their children, for many years to come.

The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up
  If you are the type that is interested in anything that has to do with organizing and decluttering, you have probably heard about the best-selling book from Japan titled, "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up". When I heard of its popularity and the 50 persons waiting list for the library copy, I knew I had to see what all the fuss was about. If you haven’t read the book yet, come and let me give you an overview of the book and the key points to the “KonMari” method. It is revolutionary in it’s method, and takes tidying to a whole new level. According to Marie Kondo, if you simplify properly, you’ll never have to do it again. She has a category-by-category system that leads to lasting results. Come and hear the basics and see why I think this is the way to declutter!

Overwhelmed to Empowered: Time & Life Optimization
  Do you ever feel like there is just not enough time to do everything that you want to, and "have to" do? Does your life feel like a never-ending blur of to-do lists, emails, events, commitments, and obligations? Do you ever worry that time is racing by so quickly that you are missing out on quality time with your friends, family, and yourself?
  If so, you're certainly not alone. In this day and age, most of us are familiar with that frazzled feeling of being overworked and overwhelmed. We are busier than ever and yet we find ourselves struggling to find the time to do the things that will help move us to our bigger goals, dreams, and life vision. We tell ourselves that we will start pursuing our dreams "when life settles down", but that day never seems to come. It's time for a shift!

Integrated Movement Workshop, Part 1: Integrate Your Movement to Maximize Benefits & Minimize Risk of Injury
  As early as in your mid-20’s, you will start losing muscle and your ability to heal will slow down. When we enter our 40-50’s, it is time to move thru life with our eyes and heart open. This applies to our exercise regime as well since non-integrated form can not only be unproductive, but injurious.
  What is “Integrated Movement?” It is acknowledging and respecting our body as a whole and not pieces. It is working toward balance with the physical body where strength and suppleness along with calmness of mind is in a constant flow. It is respecting that your miraculous body is made to move in many ways, not only the habitual movement you have in daily life which can result in overuse and tightness in some areas and laxity in others.
  It is important for you to fully appreciate the inner workings of your physical body. In addition, we will integrate the importance of allowing your mind to relax with a brief Yoga Nidra session at the conclusion of our time together.

Astrology Update: North & South Node - Your Past & Your Destiny
  Your astrological birth chart has a nodal axis, one that astrologers can examine to look to the future and the past - to see your “destiny”, so to speak. The north and south nodes of your birth chart - also known as your “nodal axis” - is one of the few points in your chart that doesn’t feature planets. The nodes in your chart ask you to remember and honor not only what your experiences have taught you in the past, and that you are good at, but how to use that to move forward in your life. It is similar to when you are driving a car. If you only focus on looking in the rear view mirror (south node) then you might miss important signposts along the journey of life (north node). Come and find out what your north and south node say about your journey.
  NOTE: We must have your birthday, birth time, and birth location at least 24 hours prior to the class. Members, we have your charts on file, but please register so Alice can properly prepare. For this class, we do need to have your exact birth time for the most accurate and useful information.
