‘Connection Practice’

Sharon Abreu and Michael Hurwicz will present a three-hour workshop on The Connection Practice at the Emmanuel Parish Hall on Sunday, March 26 from 12:30–3:30 p.m.

“Our current political situation is generating so much fear, anger, conflict and chaos, that it can shatter our ability to connect with other people in a positive, empathic way,” said Abreu and Hurwicz. The Connection Practice is a tool that can help: increase rapport and deepen connections and prevent or resolve conflicts. Register by March 23 at
