Spirituality of Ageing: Life is for Living

April 27 2024

"Thank you for holding the Spirituality of Aging workshop last Saturday.

It was an excellent, thought-provoking day.

Kerin was such an engaging, gifted speaker who melded the group together so that by lunch time we were a united group, even though we may only have known a few others when we arrived.

 The content was so cleverly highlighted by the use of films, and so the topics never seemed dry."
