Randy Pausch, Achieving Your Childhood Dreams, and Spiritual Growth in Tucson
I frequently think of Tucson as a place with a special "spiritual aura", but maybe that's just because in my heart of hearts I'm a hippie earth mother. What do you think? (Insert Sarah Palinesque wink here.)
While you think about it, you can watch this lecture by Randy Pausch, known as the Last Lecture. I don't agree with his work ethic, but his life, death and lecture present a lot of important stuff to think about...
Also, if you are a women interested in an affordable support group specifically designed to address the process of personal transformation, I could refer you. The doc's approach is "eclectic, cognitive behavioral, feminist and experiential." Sounds pretty cool, huh?
Both groups will be offered this Fall and are scheduled to begin as soon as they are filled. Space in the groups is limited, and admission to the groups is by interview only. Interested participants may schedule an initial 30-minute individual interview at no cost.
One group will be offered on Thursdays 5:30-7pm and the other group will be offered on Saturdays 10-11:30am. The fee for each 90-minute group session is $35.00. The groups will be facilitated near the Tucson Mall.
If you're interested I can forward you a flier. Here's a bio from the doc:
"I received my Master's degree in Counseling and Guidance from the University of Arizona in 1984 and established my private practice in 1985. I am experienced in social service, educational and clinical settings, and as a consultant, community organizer, and advocate.
My clinical specialties include adults (individuals and couples), marital/partnership, relationship and parenting issues, conflict resolution and mediation, LGBT concerns, depression, anxiety, loss or grief, emotional, physical and sexual abuse issues and trauma resolution.
