Final Session in 'Positive Aging' Series Is May 1 in Sacramento

April 12, 2012

The final session of a four-part series on Positive Aging and Spirituality, "The Positivity Tool Kit for Later Life," will be offered on Tuesday, May 1 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at Japanese United Methodist Church in Sacramento.

To be a Christian should mean that we are to be positive, hope-filled persons expecting life abundant. However, some of us struggle with this ideal sometimes, especially as we age. The course attempts to provide practical guidance for bringing the goal and reality together.
The workshop, taught by the Rev. Dr. Judith Pruess-Mellow, will start with a brief review of the three courses to date, and then focus on "The Power of Optimism"; "Positivity Tool Kit" – what's in it and building your own tool kit; and "Dealing with Negative Thoughts."
There is no charge to attend and it is not necessary to have attended the other courses in the series.
All the Positive Aging and Spirituality courses were funded by a grant from the Beulah Foundation and offered free of charge.
Japanese United Methodist Church is located at 6929 Franklin Blvd., Sacramento, CA 95823. Get directions using Google Maps, on the church's web page.
