Forgive my thoughtlessness.  This summer it dawned on me that the 2000 people in Yoga Hillsboro’s student community list may want to share time with one another about the challenges, joys and successes of healing and staying well.  After all, that is why we all show up here: learning and sharing how we might heal and stay well from in inside out!

It turns out that many doctors and therapists are in our community of students and would also be willing to learn and  share something about what they know.

So . . . here we go!  On a Saturday evening we will gather here.  The theme at this Gathering will be Meeting Illness with Courage & Kindness.

Bring two things: 1) a question about how how you might be able to meet, deal with a difficlut diagnosis, 2) something to say about how you or someone you know met illness with courage and kindness.

We have the good fortune to have Dr. Kathy Alvarez, MD of Partners in Wellness willing to come that evening and share her experiences with us.

All welcome to this event.  Register to RSVP because there is limited space.  Saturday, October 21st; 5-6:30pm.  Hope to share this with you!  —  Brant
