Open Circle returns
Loretta Downs presents “When Vulnerability Becomes Strength: From Care Giver to Receiver,” at the next meeting of Open Circle in the Lake Chapala Society garden, Sunday, February 21, 10:30 a.m.
How do we adjust when health challenges upend our independence? Whether parent, child, spouse, partner, friend or neighbor, we face vulnerabilities while adapting to role reversals from care giver to care receiver. Being vulnerable is never welcome yet receiving care provides opportunities for developing compassion, expressing love, achieving personal growth, and finding grace. Learn ways to welcome your vulnerability and surrender to “what is.”
Attendance is limited to 80 people. Make your reservation at www.opencircleajijic.org.
Use of face masks is mandatory and temperature checks are made on entry. Bring a hat and bottled water, and remove containers upon departure.
